Hello I’m Paul

Husband, dad and wedding photographer based in Somerset. Think of me as your storytelling sidekick for your wedding day, I am a fun, relaxed photographer, widely regarded for my natural documentary style photography to keep your day authentic.

Whether it’s the heartfelt squeezes during vows, the tears of laughter during pre-wedding drinks, or Uncle Derek breaking it down on the dance floor in a way only he can, I’m on the lookout for all the quirks that make your day uniquely yours.
I take immense pride in the dedication I share with my couples.

From our initial contact to the final delivery of photos, your journey is my priority, and I’m dedicated to making every moment memorable.

A little about me…. I have the best job in the world– no question!

I have been capturing weddings ever since my first one back in 2014 and since then I was hooked. I have shot 100’s of weddings across the southwest of the UK and have been privileged to shoot in Poland and the USA.

If you’re setting the vibe for a laid-back affair or gearing up for an epic celebration, consider me on board—I’m all in and would love to be a part of your unique story! 📸✨

GOT SOME QUESTIONS?


Get in touch. If you include your wedding date in the contact form, I can easily check if I have that date available and get back to you. I do require a signed contract and a booking fee to secure your date. This is all done through my booking system.

I am a huge fan of travel, and I am happy to go any where, travelling over 2 hours, I may need accommodation the night before.

I have shot weddings in San Francisco, and in Poland so I do like to stretch my wings and fly!

Paul Aston Photography is fully insured. Many venues and reception locations require this for wedding photographers and may ask you to contact me so I can provide details to them.

You will receive a sneak peek of your images within 2 weeks of your wedding date. The rest of your gallery will follow approximately 3-5 weeks after your wedding date.

I will send all of your digital photos in a beautiful online gallery. This will make it easy for you to view and share with your family & friends, and you’ll be able to download the files in both high resolution for print, and web-sized.

Absolutely, did I tell you I love coffee? Meeting couples before the big day is a very important part of our work, and we feel it’s very important to build a relationship with you.

I do (as part of my platinum package) I must admit, she is quite spectacular too! She happens to be my best friend and wife! Occasionally, if she is booked for another life event, I will hire out another professional photographer to second shoot for me. They will have a very similar style to mine and our work will be seamless. All editing is done by me, so you can be sure that your wedding day gallery will be cohesive and tell the story of your day in the most artistic and professional way.

You are not alone. Many people feel the same way and I’m no exception.

Don’t worry, my style is really relaxed with hardly any posing and forced stuff. On the few occasions during the day that you’ll expect to be posing, pics of just the two of you for example, we’ll keep it really chilled and informal.

We’ll go for a walk for no more than 20mins or so, and I’ll get you to walk, chat and smooch naturally. I’ll be silly and make you laugh which will make you forget its photo time. For the rest of the day you’ll hardly realise I’m there.
