Here are a few of the weddings I’ve had the privilege of being a part of, both in the Somerset area and beyond!

Bella & Gianni

Crowcombe COURT wedding in Somerset

An incredibly skilled photographer, Paul exceeded expectations for our wedding. His role extended beyond merely capturing photos; he actively orchestrated the day, even quelling my unexpected morning anxiety.

The day after the wedding, we received snapshot photos. To say we are pleased would be a complete understatement. These photos surpassed our expectations, brimming with enchantment and originality. I cannot stress enough how much Paul put everyone at ease whilst still managing to organise photos at a particularly sizable wedding.

Paul remained inconspicuous throughout the day, and the timeless, remarkable photos stand as a testament to his expertise and experience.

I wholeheartedly recommend entrusting Paul with creative control, allowing him to perform his magic.
