We had met Paul prior to our styled shoot and launch event, at a nearby wedding fair.  We were both struck by his pleasant and professional attitude as well as the quality of his work, so of course, he was our first choice for our launch weekend. 

Paul was fantastic to work with throughout both days and the images he has produced are exceptional.  In essence, the work produced is for multiple clients, in that, he has created beautiful images that represent the potential of our venue and fantastic images which showcase each and every supplier who brought the entire experience to life. This, we feel, shows such professionalism and understanding as well as such different styles of photographic work. 

From detailed tablescapes featuring beautiful flowers and stationery to wonderful action shots of the bride and groom models, from fluttering bunting to a cake still life, he has managed to capture each moment beautifully.  We are so thankful and couldn’t be more delighted with the collection and have already recommended Paul to new clients
