Beyond incredible
Paul Smith is incredibly talented and because of him our day was perfect and now we have the perfect memories to last with the amazing photos he captured throughout our day. From the beginning of the process he made us feel comfortable, eager to get to know how we are as people so he could ensure he captured this throughout our day and wow this paid of as we have the photos that reflect our personality! From arriving catching bridal preparations, helping with button holes, giving the best wedding day advice and building the best rapport with our guests he captured the best moments and our guests are still talking about it! Thank you for making our day and if I was able to have our day again we would make the same decision over and over again.
Response from the supplier
Aw, thank you guys, though I've never heard of Paul Smith lol. Don't worry, you're not the first, or certainly won't be the last to do that. Amazing words, you're so kind and part of the reason I love doing this so so much! I'd love to do it again for you.... over, and over 😁

Love, love, love Paul's work
I just admire Paul's work. He photographed my cousin's wedding. I actually live in the states but told him should I ever venture down that isle again, I would fly him over.
Response from the supplier
Absolutely delighted to hear that you love, love, love my work! It's always a pleasure to receive such wonderful feedback. I'm glad to hear that the photographs from your cousin's wedding were to your liking and the many others since. If you do decide to return down the aisle, please don't hesitate to reach out. I would be honoured to fly over to capture your special day!

Do not hesitate to hire him!
Paul was the absolute best wedding photographer we could have asked for. He not only helped us before the wedding, but on the day he put my photograph hating husband at ease and obtained the most amazing photographs. The date night reveal was an added bonus and made it really special. We cannot recommend him enough!
Response from the supplier
Thank you so much Steffi. It means the world to me to receive this, so much so, I am all out of words. Seriously though, thank you. You and your husband were both fantastic on your wedding day.

Would HIGHLY Recommend
Paul Swift, our photographer, was amazing from the moment we contacted him. He was relaxed, informative and friendly. I contacted 3 photographers but was never in any doubt who we wanted to book after the initial interaction. We knew exactly what to expect on the wedding day and Paul put us completely at ease. He helped us even when getting ready and it was clear how many times he has been involved in helping brides and bridesmaids with this prep time. Many family and friends commented on how great Paul was at staying in the background but the photos we have received are amazing! Paul us a perfectionist and will give nothing less than 100%. We highly recommend and have been so happy with the results.
Response from the supplier
Thank you so much, Lil, Lee. I'm speechless again as I've run out of nice things to say in reply to these reviews. I'd give you both a blumin big hug if you were nearer 😂😂 Thank you for putting your complete trust in me on your wedding day. Like you say, it goes a long way when you're certain you've booked the expert. Thanks again and I wish you an amazing 2023.

Amazing day
I booked Paul for our wedding September 2022. I wasn’t really sure where to begin when I was looking for a wedding photographer! But I loved the style of Paul’s photos and found him really easy to communicate with. The packages he offered were really clear and the cost was reasonable for what he was offering. In the lead up to the wedding Paul was on hand to help with any questions we might have and really helped to put us at ease. On the day he blended in with the guests ! We had a good chat and it was actually really nice to have him there as part of the day. He gave us all sorts of advice on the day and even advised my sister of the best way to fasten my dress! He made us laugh and feel really comfortable while having our photos taken. I was worried we’d feel awkward but that really wasn’t the case. He even helped some of the guests with tips when taking their own photos. We’ve had so many compliments on the photos and I couldn’t be happier. I can’t recommend him enough. Thank you Paul!

Paul was amazing, even our other suppliers commented on how great he was! We had an initial zoom call with Paul and we instantly felt relaxed. Paul knew exactly what he was doing and offered great tips for timings and planning. On the day Paul was there to capture all of the best moments without being intrusive, half the time I didn’t even realise he was there. I was super nervous about our couple shots but it felt very relaxed and natural! Paul worked in a way that allowed to us get maximum time with our guests but also the most amazing photos! I would highly recommend !
