Paul was outstanding with his service making us feel like the most important people in the world throughout our day and evening. He used his artistic talent to produce some amazing photographs such as us backlit in front of our castle venue at night time. Paul was fantastic value for money as he spent every minute of the day and night with us capturing all of our memories and nothing was too much effort. Paul showed outstanding commitment before, during and after the wedding to ensure that we had the perfect photographic memories of our day. Paul’s professional standards were fantastic. He worked in the background, but took charge when needed to take group photographs. We are so pleased with his work that we would never use another photographer for any other occasion.

If I got married again tomorrow (to the same man of course:) I would choose Paul as our photographer again. That says it all. Paul is extremely professional and I could not fault his behaviour leading up to the wedding and on the day itself. He captured our big day beautifully. The photographs are works of art. Always quick to reply, always available and no request was ever too much. Having Paul as our photographer made out wedding day and the memory of it extra special.

Paul – thanks once again for doing a fantastic job of our wedding photos. Throughout the whole process we felt really relaxed and confident that you would do a great job, and we had been admiring all the photos you had been doing of other people’s weddings so we were really excited about how you would shoot ours. Well we certainly weren’t disappointed! My big recommendation to other people going through the process would be to do the pre-wedding shoot, it really helped us to relax in front of the camera, was great that we could find the locations we wanted to have some shots taken in – which helped saved us a huge amount of time on the day, and it was good to understand the lighting and also some tips you had for us about how to hold ourselves! And then on the day, you did such a great job of working around us and our guests, we love the reportage style and candid shots you have of people, and the flow and pace you applied to the day. And now when we look back we have a really great way of remembering the day, but also we have some of those awesome Paul Keppel grand vistas, big moments, rolling landscapes and the two of us planted right in the middle. For anyone thinking of hiring Paul I thoroughly recommend it, he is an absolute professional and a real talent!

Paul was the exact kind of photographer we wanted for our wedding. We were organising a Cornish wedding from Australia so we looked at lots of photographer’s websites to find a style that suited us. We fell in love with the photos that Paul had taken at our venue (Trevenna Barns) of previous weddings and also what he was had for other places. When we met up with him, he was very easy going and had lots of albums for us to see of his work (come rain or shine). We bonded well with him and that was it – he was our photographer. We met up again the week before just to go through the shots that we would like from the wedding and also what he recommended. Because we were late in the season, he suggested some shots that he hadn’t done with other couples which we both liked the sound of. On the wedding day he was fantastic. Got lots of photos of us getting ready (without being in the way) and then during the ceremony. After the ceremony was complete he chauffeured us to the spots that he had picked out for us and got some beautiful photos. He was really flexible with how our day was going. The wedding album is really well put together. Paul has out done himself through out the entire process. We will quite happily recommend him to anyone getting married.

I innocently googled Cornish wedding photographers as my starting point to find the person to capture our wedding. I stumbled upon Paul Keppel’s site and viewed his amazing gallery. All of his photographs used so many different photographic techniques and portrayed all the weddings beautifully. Meeting Paul was a great pleasure. He kept my husband and I very much at ease and gave us very helpful tips when posing and our special day was calm and relaxed from the get go. After the very difficult choice of picking the photographs, we were sent our gorgeous wedding album. The album is such high quality and the most perfect way we could go back and relive our amazing day. I will always treasure the album and the experience always.

From the initial meeting with Paul to receiving our wedding album, Paul was incredibly professional and focused on getting exactly the right pictures from our wedding. We had a slightly different style wedding but this didn’t faze Paul. He met us before we got to the venue and took photos of us and family members even though it was windy. He managed to get some excellent pictures of the sea and cliff. We took all of our guests onto the beach and had a lovely large group photo, followed by speech and cake cutting pictures which truly captured the whole day perfectly. The highlight though must be the final photo when I suddenly announced I wanted a picture on the beach with the moonlight. Even with kit falling over because of the wind we got a fantastic picture. The quality of the album we received after finally selecting our pictures is brilliant. A true reflection of our wonderful day. Thank you Paul

We are so happy we chose Paul, he was such a massive part of our special day. From the moment he arrived on the big day to the last dance we hardly noticed he was there. It wasn’t until we had our photos we were amazed at the most beautiful pictures. Every time we look at our pictures we get filled with emotion and get taken back to our very special day. Thank you so Paul x

There’s no doubt about it we made the right decision when we picked Paul as our photographer.
I made contact with him after getting a recommendation from my venue. I wanted someone who knew the venue well as it had a great outdoor space for an outdoor wedding but the indoor space was quite restrictive – you can never guarantee the weather in Cornwall so it was important our photograph could adapt to the indoor space if we couldn’t get married outdoors. Paul’s portfolio was proof that he knew it well and could adapt to the indoor space to produce beautiful photos – we didn’t even consider seeing any other photographers.
On the day, Paul and his team were there on time and worked discreetly in the background but at the same time engaging with our guests and making them feel more comfortable in front of the camera – in fact pretty much all our guest commented to us about how wonderful they were!
The sun shone and we were lucky enough to get married outdoors. When it came to the big moment they captured beautiful, natural shots, including a great ones of our friends taking a group selfie of themselves (a particular special memory as we recently relocated to Australia and miss them a lot – it’s been printed and takes prized position on my desk at work!).

Paul came highly recommended and from the very start we knew we had made the right decision. He is such a personable character, relaxed but equally highly professional. The key for me is he got to know us and listened to what we wanted which made the entire shoot relaxed, fun and a massive part in making this day so special. He met us a number of times before the day and at the venue, scoped out key areas for photographs and liaised effectively with the events manager.
The photos were brilliant- the lighting, background and quality of the prints exceeded our expectations and we loved he mix of posed and ‘action shots’. He caught amazing moments of me forgetting to speak at the altar and the laughter which ensued, to photographing people’s reactions to our speeches and some wonderful moments between myself and my wife. The aftercare was equally as great, constantly communicating with us and even offering to bring the album to our parents who lived nearby in Cornwall. Overall, we cannot thank Paul enough and we wouldn’t have changed a single aspect of the day regarding his service: photographs. We feel very lucky to have had him as part of our day

We took a great deal of time looking for the perfect photographer as we live in Nottingham & was getting married in St Mawes Castle. Nights on the Internet looking for the perfect style, natural & modern but simply elegant & we found the perfect guy, Paul!
From his website his blogs looked amazing & just what we were after so we arranged to meet in a lovely little cake house in Truro. After sitting there for over an hour listening to him talk so passionate about his work & the love for photography & showing us the wide range of albums he could offer, I knew within the first 5 minutes he would be perfect to shoot our big day, so we booked him before we even finished our cake!!
Our Wedding Day was perfect & Paul’s photo’s were simply incredible & so much more than I could of ever imagined!! After your wedding day you have a lot of keepsakes but nothing comes close to the memories of photographs of all your loved ones on your special day!
Thank you Paul for everything, very highly recommend & extremely talented!!

Beautiful, spectacular, amazing and breath-taking! These are a few words our friends and family have used to describe our wedding photographs & album. It is something we will treasure for a lifetime and also enjoy showing our baby girl. We cannot thank Paul enough for capturing us beautifully as a couple and creating such a relaxed and happy environment on our big day. Not only did Paul capture unique images but he also helped by answering questions on wedding protocol and helpful posing tips. He even went as far as to carry around some bridal essentials for me.
Nothing was too much effort; he also managed to fade into the background to get wonderfully relaxed shots of our guests. We really can’t thank him enough.
