Wedding Photographer Northumberland, Newcastle upon Tyne, & North East Photography

My vision is to create a stunning blend of documentary style wedding photography with dramatic portraiture, as a more contemporary wedding photographer. My style is capturing you as people by being in the background and by being as unobtrusive as I can be. I am a strong believer in retaining your heritage with a few traditional shots and coming home with a few wow shots. It really is the perfect blend for telling your unique wedding story.

Wedding Stories are so much more than great wedding photography. It is having the ability to narrate the day, plan and design the photography around your comfort zones and look after you throughout your special day. I am proud to say that most of my bookings are from recommendations, based on the personalised service that you recieve.

I am an ex-high school teacher originally from Darlington, yet I now reside in Newcastle as a full time wedding photographer. Most of my work is within the North East of England, with weddings in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, Durham, a few in Scotland and a few abroad. My reputation for wedding storytelling as well as my charming personality and relaxed approach are the reasons I am approached for wedding venues, from all over the UK and internationally.

Customer Testimonials

From the get go Paul made Ben and I feel at ease when discussing our wedding. We had a Skype meeting where we talked about ourselves, what we do and what we wanted on the day. The conversation felt relaxed and it easily flowed. At the end if the Skype call there was no obligation to book Paul but we were so thrilled we booked him there and then. Any communication from then on was prompt and informative, this I found to be helpful as he explained everything I asked.

On the day of the wedding Paul was just fantastic, we had a videographer which we informed him about and the both of them together were hilarious. He made us feel at ease, there was no camera shoved in my face and anytime he wanted a certain picture he would direct Ben or I to get what he wanted.

He captured some top notch natural laughing moments and even some of me giving people "the look". This I found hilarious as it is me through and through. Some of the pictures he took have been so good to look at because as the bride and groom you really don't realise how fast the day goes by.

Once the evening came he was prepared so snap some shots of our first dance, this was a ballroom number so I had told him where I would be moving around so he could get in position. There are some excellent shots from the dance which I am so proud of. It was raining just before he was about to go and as a last minute shoot we went outside. Now these pictures are incredible, every single person loves the outcome of the light behind us in the rain. I recommend doing this if you can as you won't be disappointed.

Thank you so much Paul, you are one amazing person and very talented


WOW - is all I feel I keep saying! We got married on Saturday 7th July, not even a week ago and already we have received 9 beautiful photos from Paul, which have made us extremely excited about the rest.

Paul is very relaxed and that shows in his natural, beautiful photography. We’re not very good in front of the camera, but Paul told us what he wanted and also told us the best thing we could do was not focus too much on the fact a camera was there. We felt at ease, which made us enjoy our day even more. All the guests loved Paul. We were so very thankful he was there to capture our special day.

If you have a date for your wedding - please book Paul in now - I can guarantee you will not regret it. After all - what else will you have left of your day which will last a lifetime?


Wow...what an incredible photographer and wonderful man! Paul facilitated the best day of our lives and charmed the entire wedding cohort in the process! He was full of energy whilst being patient, he was flexible whilst ensuring he got the important shots and he was always on hand whilst never being intrusive. I can count on one hand how many reviews I have written but I could not forgive myself if hadn't taken a moment to shout from the rooftops about how amazing Paul and his photography is.


Our Wedding Day was the best day of our lives, and Paul was a huge part of that! He was part of the wedding party, snapping away and catching some precious memories!
Paul you really were amazing, we cant wait to look at all the pictures and no doubt laugh and cry some more! Thank you for the bottom of our hearts!

Young Will did a fantastic job as ring bearer and after passing the rings he sat back and was so proud of Rachel and Sam. Just look at the expression on his face and his smile as the ring was placed. Amazing choice of ring bearer!. Doxford Barns
