Cheshire Wedding Photographer

Hello, I’m Paul, a full-time Cheshire wedding photographer, based in Macclesfield and ideally situated to cover weddings all over the UK. I am not exclusively a wedding photographer, and would describe myself as a photographer who shoots weddings as well as many other areas within photography. But weddings are great fun and I love the challenge that a wedding presents as it is one of the few times that as a photographer you get to use all of your skills to capture those life lasting images that are so important. Thanks for having a look at my work. Being a Cheshire wedding photographer for many years I have a vast experience of how to photograph your wedding in a natural and unposed way with only a couple of short sessions of you and your partner to give you those stunning unique images for you to treasure for years to come.

This is a short video put together by the very talented Jeff Wood to give you a little insight into how I put together my hand crafted Jorgensen wedding albums from Australia and my approach to wedding photography. The most important thing for me though is not to lose sight of the fact that it is YOUR wedding day and I am there to document the day to give you the very best images that I can produce.

I shoot weddings mainly in Cheshire and the North West but also all over the UK and occasionally travel abroad for destination weddings. I usually start two hours before the wedding and go through until the first dance – and I love to look for those moments that you may miss on the day. You can also see from these images that I do a mix of colour and black and white. In years to come when you and your children look back on your wedding day I hope that I can provide a true memory of what happened, without the need for endless group shots and awkward posed portraits. As a Cheshire wedding photographer covering mainly Cheshire I get to work at some of the most fabulous venues in the country on a regular basis and I have worked at all of the most popular venues.

If you want to call me to discuss your wedding and check my availability you can reach me anytime on 07973 491709 or just fill out the contact form at the top of this page and I will get back to you as soon as possible. All packages include all day coverage and a disc of approx 350 images ready for you to print and share.
