Attending Wedding Fairs & Events

I rarely get to visit many Wedding Fairs these days. Sadly due to the booked weddings I’m usually working on. Alot of my time is also spent editing the photos and collating the best of the moments captured. I will add the words attending to the list if I’m able to make a personal appearance.

A Video Call Meeting or In Person

if you’d like to discuss your wedding plans, venue and potential dates then please do get in touch. We can arrange a video call or if time permits, a pre-wedding photo shoot.


Once you have decided on your package, just drop me a message and I will get the booking form and contract emailed over to you. Once this is signed and the deposit is received then your wedding date is booked.

My business is based in Somerset,UK. 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.
