Full Description
I’m a chilled out, coffee-guzzling Wedding Photographer for relaxed and fun couples. I live in the lovely market town of Standish on the border of Lancashire with my Fiancé and a growing selection of fury kids. I photographed my first ever weddings on board a cruise ship over ten years ago and after working on lots of boring commercial photography jobs, I returned to my love of parties and people in 2016. Nowadays I spend my working life shooting unique and beautiful weddings for not-so-traditional couples. I’m privileged to have the best job in the world, and love what I do even when it rains!

he made us all feel so at ease
From booking Paul as our photographer, to the wedding day, to receiving our photos, Paul communicated everything with us brilliantly! On the big day, he made us all feel so at ease and got some amazing photos which we will cherish forever! Paul was so flexible in getting lots of shots of family and friends and did it all with a smile on his face. We love Paul’s natural, light photos and this is what drew us to him. We also loved receiving all our prints in black and white too! Paul sent our photos to us in a very timely manner which we could share with all of the family. We would like to say a big thank you for your hard work on the day and after! We can’t recommend you enough! ☺️

professional, friendly, and nonintrusive
If you are looking for a photographer who is professional, friendly, and nonintrusive, then look no further than Paul Waring. Paul put all our guests at ease and was superb at catching the wedding day as it truly happened, in a natural and organic way. Paul was extremely attentive to our needs, and we are so happy with the final photos. We can’t wait to put our album together and we’re sure it will mirror the quality of the rest of Paul’s service.

From the very beginning when we first met Paul, h
Thank you so much Paul for our fantastic wedding photos. From the very beginning when we first met Paul, he was so kind and easy to chat to. We absolutely adore our photos - he's captured the day perfectly with so many natural photos. He stayed til the very end and we are so grateful he did as he captured lots of the funny evening photos! Paul was quick to respond throughout and delivered our photos quickly after the wedding. Thank you so much - you made our special day even more perfect!

We can’t thank Paul enough
We can’t thank Paul enough for capturing our big day perfectly. We won a competition on Facebook and met up to meet with Paul in our local coffee shop ( he loves his coffee shops) and instantly we liked him. Kind, funny, perfect to get on with and someone relaxed who doesn’t put too much pressure on you. Paul went above and beyond on our big day too, capturing a picture of a lost loved one with a member of our family which touched Paul’s heart and he went out of his way to get the photo printed off and brought to us whilst the day was still going on. The group photos were quick and Paul was very organised as to who was in what group photos etc. Everyone at the wedding commented how lovely and how easy it was to get on with him. As we aren’t a couple who love to stand and pose for photos, all the natural shots he captured are perfect. He was even able to take some lovely pictures of some of the things my sister had made for me for her little business too. If you’re looking a natural photographer who captures the best shots of the day (I mean the traditional ones still need to be done but personally I love the natural ones) then Paul’s your guy! Again thank you so much for our photos. We will treasure them for ever. Definitely will not forget your amazing work on the day. Thank you. Mr and Mrs Newman

so nice to see how much you love what you do
From the very beginning when we met virtually in lockdown, Paul has been so helpful and also really bubbly and easy to get on with! On our wedding day he put us so at ease we almost felt as though he was a guest! Everyone commented how lovely you were and it was so nice to see how much you love what you do, showing us pictures you were proud of throughout the day. And that really comes across in the final result - we have a beautiful set of many many photos that tell the story of the day! I don’t know how you did it but you captured every emotion and each time we look through the photos we get the feeling we’re reliving it. We can’t thank you enough!

he captured the most beautiful photos
Couldn't recommend Paul enough. Not only did he put us both at ease, he captured the most beautiful photos without us barely noticing on the day. He was a pleasure to have share our day, a true talent. Thank you Paul!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Without sounding too cliché, they're all memorable in their own way! I've seen everything from broken legs on the dance floor, to four-person-weddings... and everything from Castles to mini-weddings with two guests! Each and every one has charm.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

fun, casual, relaxed, emotive, candid.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I love that I have so many new friends, every year. A booking is not the start of a business transaction, it's a gateway to a relationship.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Enjoy it... and don't stress about the weather!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I love anything handmade !

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After the initial enquiry, We can set up a zoom call (or a brew)... We can then complete the booking and look forward to the big day, with a few points of contact along the way. After the wedding, you'll have all of your images within 3 weeks, and we can look into albums :) Simples.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

There isn't one... every couple has their own story, and your wedding photos are a collection of images to tell the story.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?


Describe how you got into photography.

I started shooting photos aged around 17 (long, long time ago) of my friend on BMX bikes. I eventually got pretty good at it, and shot magazine work and some advertisements. I eventually expanded into shooting advertising work for all sorts of companies, travelled the world with photography, before settling into weddings when I realised how much I love 'em!
