Full Description
Paul is my name and I specialise in natural, beautiful wedding photography in Lancashire. My passion is capturing the moments of your wedding day with honesty, humor, and emotion. I do this to make sure you get photos that reflect your personality and leave you with memories you will cherish. Happy Wedding Photography for Happy Couples. You've found the right place if you are looking for a relaxed wedding with a photographer who is easy to get along with, and who can help you relax in front of the camera. I am aware that there are many photographers around the world, not to mention Lancashire and that's before we look at the many styles and prices. Let me know if I can help narrow this down a little. - Do you want to be able to relax, have fun, and most importantly enjoy your wedding day with your friends without having to spend hours away? - Do you want a photographer who takes the time to understand your needs and not just their portfolio? You're in the right place if so. Your wedding photography is an investment. All your beautiful wedding day moments are too precious to leave languishing on your hard drive. That's why I now include at least 25 quality prints of your choice with every package, in addition to your digital photos. All but the essentials package also include an album. My statement: I love and like a lot of things, especially weddings. I love couples that laugh and don't take themselves too seriously. They are happy to just enjoy their wedding day. I love what I do and it allows me to tell your story through photos so that you can relive all your emotions, laughter, and tears when you look at your wedding photos, 'Your Wedding Story'.

Everyone needs a Paul Swift in their lives!!
Paul is amazing. I was really nervous about the photography element of our wedding as I am not a fan of staged photos. The moment I met Paul he put me at ease and talked me through the whole process. On the day itself he was fantastic. His attention to detail and eye for backdrops was unreal. At one point I remember thinking "you want me where?" and those pics turned out to be my favourite! He's just a real genuine guy and his passion for his work is evident in everything he does. Even his 'aftercare' is outstanding and nothing is ever too much trouble. We adore him! Trust me - you won't find anyone better!!

He made such an impression that our Best Man booked him for his wedding
We got married at Mitton Hall in 2017 and Paul was our photographer. From the initial phone call to the delivery of our album, we felt at ease. He puts in the extra effort to find out about you and what you need. He gave us loads of helpful tips and ideas from years of experience. We felt like everything was planned perfectly before and on the day. He made such an impression that our Best Man booked him for his wedding, so we saw him again last year! We hope to see him again one day in the future!

Paul has such a relaxed nature that puts everyone at ease and this is very important for your big day
Where do we start! It all begins with a competition I entered online ( which I won) followed by a complimentary photoshoot... and we went from there - leading to Paul being our chosen wedding photographer which was an easy choice given we had built a relationship. Picking the correct photographer is very important and Paul took all that stress off our hands. Paul has such a relaxed nature that puts everyone at ease and this is very important for your big day. Nothing was too much trouble, he went that extra mile and everything we asked of him was done without any issues. We have to say though the pictures were exceptional and he has given us some amazing memories we will cherish forever. We would have no hesitation in recommending Paul, he made us laugh throughout the day and clearly loves what he does. Thank you Paul.

He has such a relaxed nature that puts everyone at ease
I have worked with Paul in my capacity as Function Manager at Mitton Hall a few times now and I always look forward to working with him. He has such a relaxed nature that puts everyone at ease, which is key for such a big day. He is very professional and personable and works incredibly well with our team as he knows how tight our timings can be. I would highly recommend Paul Swift Photography to anyone who asked. 😃

Thank you Paul we would recommend you to any couple!
As someone who loves photographs, we wanted a wedding photographer who could create a journey of the whole day, someone who didn’t mind talking lots and lots of pictures. Paul completely understood what we wanted when we met with him and couldn’t have done a more beautiful job of taking our wedding photographs in August 2019. Paul’s previous experience at our wedding venue, Mitton Hall, allowed us to feel comfortable and confident that our photographs would be amazing. Thank you Paul we would recommend you to any couple! 😊

He makes guests feel comfortable and works efficiently.
Friendly, professional, punctual, meticulous, skillful... these are probably just some of the attributes you look for in a wedding photographer. Paul could be accurately described as every one of those above words. If I had to pick one area which really, really stood out, I would say Paul really offers a personal and friendly photography experience. He takes the time to listen to you as a couple and discuss all aspects of the day. He has a fountain of knowledge that can be drawn upon for help with all aspects of the wedding. His work speaks for its self so there is no need for me to say anything further on that. You can see how his work is sublime. An image doesn't tell you how Paul conducts himself. Paul is able to work with everyone to capture what is needed. He makes guests feel comfortable and works efficiently. Make no mistake, his efficiency does not compromise quality. Words cannot really do him justice, you need to reach out to him and see what he is about. So, thank you Paul for capturing mine and my wife's wedding day. In the whirlwind of the day and the months that follow, the memories can start to fade. One look at the photos brings all the happiness back.
