We hadn't organised a photographer for our wedding and needed someone on short notice. We contacted Paul on Thursday or Friday before the wedding (our wedding was on a Tuesday) and we're lucky that Paul put up his hand to do the job. He arrived on time and took the best photos. He was great at using the venue to its full potential and caught the mood of the day. His pictures were so natural and everyone I've sent them to absolutely loved them. We definitely recommend you hire him

Paul was amazing in helping us sort out how we wanted the photos to be. He came to see us beforehand to chat things through and put us at our ease, and on the day he was friendly and helpful and unobtrusive throughout both the ceremony and the reception. He really understands that each wedding is special and personal, and brings great sensitivity to people’s needs and wishes. Two weeks later we received a beautiful collection of pictures of us, our families and friends which really captures the joy of the day. We couldn’t be more pleased and would definitely recommend Paul to anyone we know getting married.

After meeting Paul at a local wedding fair, he invited us to see his portfolio of his current wedding photography. He was the type of photographer we were looking for- one that prefers to take natural pictures with a few posed pictures. He had a relaxed approach and was happy to take requested photos, making small suggestions to improve the image. We are really pleased we went with Paul and would recommend him to future wedding planners. Paul’s photography rates were very good, he spent a full day capturing our special moments for us.

Paul is not just mind blowing with the work he produces but is a warm and lovely person. He will go the extra mile and wants everything to be 100% perfect. I cannot praise him or his work enough. I cannot see how any couple would be unhappy with their photos if they choose paul. He does his homework to make the most imaginative , unique and special photos. Paul is a very special man.

Paul was with us for our wedding day back in July. It was a sunny day on the River Thames and Paul took some stunning photos we will cherish . He captured our day perfectly. His unobtrusive nature was fantastic and a lot of our guests who saw the photos commented that they were not even aware they were been photographed.

Groom
We are very happy that we hired Paul for our wedding at Pembroke Lodge in August 2018. From first contact Paul was friendly and professional and was good value for money. On the day Paul quickly appreciated and adapted to the type of photo collection we wanted. He was not at all intrusive or demanding and we were delighted with the whole experience. We were very happy with the end result; all the photographs were of good quality and we could not have received a better service. Very happy to recommend Paul for any wedding.

Paul did an amazing job shooting our wedding! He very quickly understood the vibe we wanted and was able to capture the venue and the emotions of the day without anyone noticing he was even there! In the run up to the day he was very flexible and accommodating, and on the day was also open to staying a little longer than our package specified to get the shots we all wanted The presentation of the USB stick was also a lovely surprise, thanks Paul!

He made us feel very comfortable and really mingled in with the guests. He also quickly published the photographs for us to view on the website. We would highly recommend him !
Daphne & Alfred
Paul was the perfect photographer to document our small ceremony. He was very pro active and organised in arranging us for the pictures as well as being on top of our candid shots. We originally had booked for 1hr but Paul even went over time to take some pictures of our lunch afterwards. Very Happy!

What can we say! Paul was amazing! Very professional but able to fit in with the quirkiness of the day perfectly. We didn't want too many "posed" pictures and he understood that and managed to capture lots of happy moments that may have otherwise been forgotten! He even managed to get some steady shots of Del Boy, which must have been difficult whilst giggling! Thank you so much Paul, you recorded our big day perfectly and gave us pictures to treasure for life. Dawn & Jay xx

As soon as we spoke with Paul we knew he was the perfect photographer for us. Calm, friendly and endlessly patient, he managed to round up our very rowdy friends and family for individual and group shots throughout the day, without ever being pushy. Paul always went above and beyond of what we expected, including joining us at our church for the rehearsal so we could talk about where and when to take photos etc, and he also arrived early on the wedding morning to take the 'getting-ready' photos of flower girls, fathers, groom and best man etc, and some very specail photos of myself and our five year old daughter. What we really loved about our photos was the naturalness of them – of course, we wanted plenty of staged photos of all our family and friends together, but Paul managed to capture some unobserved snaps throughout the day, and these are among our most treasured. All in all, the only thing we didn't worry about with our wedding was the photography – Paul made us feel totally secure, relaxed and happy with this very important aspect of our big day, and the photos at the end of it were nothing less than amazing. Thank you so much, Paul! Speak soon! x

We'd really like to thank you for being so lovely and supportive on the day too - you have a great friendly demeanor which makes people feel at ease even in front of the camera and you were able to orchestrate both the big group shots and the shots of the two of us with a laid back confidence, which in turn made us confident, so thank you. We'd also just like to say thank you for putting in such a long stint on the day! Right from the hotel in Hitchin to the first dance and cake, it was a long time and involved lots of travelling so we are really grateful to you for agreeing to cover all these parts. It is wonderful to have such a complete record of the day all captured professionally. Thanks very much again, we will be sure to recommend you to everyone we know! :) Kind regards, Sue & Jason x

Adele & Max

I found Paul, via a website designed to match people looking for professionals in their local area. And what a find! We arranged to meet (he came to us) for a non-committal chat, to which he brought along a very impressive catalogue of his previous appointments. We hit it off immediately; Paul is open, honest, friendly and upfront about expectations and costs. Included in his total price were a committal to the entire day, approximately 500 photos, a usb stick delivered in a bespoke presentation box, a bespoke presentation coffee table book and the option of setting up a website that friends and family could access for no extra cost. His fees are very reasonable, his service excellent and his organisation beyond fantastic. Prior to our wedding, we signed the necessary contract, which apart from the legalities, also gave us options: "Do you have any particular photo scenarios that you'd like?", "Do you have any particular editing requirements?" etc... On the day itself, Paul was absolutely amazing; I really cannot emphasise enough how truly brilliant he was. He was sent here and there with no complaints, gave us suggestions, and even gave us a lift to our venue, when I'd forgotten to book transport! One of his requirements is to have a meal provided; we included him in our seating plan, joining us for our wedding meal, because he was not only more than welcome, but such an important part of our day. I cannot recommend Paul highly enough; just hire him - you won't regret it, and you'll thank your lucky stars that you did. Believe me. Thank you, Paul, for everything...

Paul greatly contributed to the success of my wedding day by capturing the joy, happiness and laughter of the occasion through his discrete but wonderfully natural and candid photography. He orchestrated the family and group shots effectively - encouraging the right groups to form together. I am very happy with the results and highly recommend his work.

Dearest Paul, they were fantastic, I shall forever be grateful to you for capturing those moments so dear to a father's heart, it was special as it was an interfaith marriage too, and your touch has made it a memorable day, apart from my little Farah so wanted a photo by herself like her cousin(only joking). With million thanks. Nur

From my first meeting with Paul on a cold Sunday afternoon in March where he turned up in a suit and his profile I knew he would be a perfect fit for what I was looking for. He made me feel relaxed, there was no pressure and his mannerism was professional and calm. On the day he was happy to get any shots we wanted and suggested other shots we had not thought about, he was not pushy in any way. All the guests said they felt he was non-intrusive and and friendly. He got some amazing shots, including one where my veil was lifted by the wind, some great non-posing photos which is what we wanted as well as the usual wedding shots. The usb stick was delivered by special delivery and was in a personalised presentation box. Everyone who saw the photos have commented on how great they look. Paul really is a brilliant photographer and I would recommend him. If I need any photography in the future I would defiantly appoint Paul.
Zeena & Ian
We had a fantastic day and we are so glad that we secured Paul for our services for the event. Really, we couldn't have asked for a photographer better-suited to our needs. Feedback from everyone involved has been unanimously positive. Thank you very much indeed. We have already and will in future recommend you, and are confident that you will go from success to more success as a wedding photographer.

If you are looking for a photographer to capture the true essence of your big day, then look no further. We cannot rate Paul any higher as he is extremely professional. Our photos are amazing – can’t quite believe how amazing they are and all my friends and family loved them!Paul has captured so many magical moments of our special day. We couldn't dream of having better photographer.
Kate & Greg

Paul was keen and helpful. He took the pictures I wanted which came beautifully presented on a personalised memory stick. The photos were natural and fun. Paul was able to put me and my husband at ease and we shared a laugh and a joke. Paul captured our day beautifully.
Dipa & Prakash
Paul captured our wedding day perfectly. He arrived at 11am to my chaotic hotel room where myself and my bridesmaids were getting ready. He was so patient with the younger bridesmaids who constantly badgered him for pictures. I felt completely relaxed forgetting that he was snapping away. During the service I did not notice Paul at all, he was very discreet but still managed to get really great natural shots. It was truly a pleasure to have him there, he managed the large group shots with as much ease as he managed the smaller intimate shots. I would recommend Paul Gapper to anyone looking for natural shots mixed with posed shots. He really helped to make our fantastic day everything it could be.
Kerry and Paul
"Creative. Professional. Reliable. Passionate. Honest. Paul is the amazing photographer who shot our wedding. Our experience as clients of Paul was that he was patient, on time, easy to work with, listens, and engaging. The last thing a bride needs to stress about on her big day is whether things are going according to plan or not."
Tony & Sarah
"I recommend Paul to you as a fine, sensitive and sensible photographer who is serious about his art. He listened to us with respect as to what we hoped for as the result, and gave us the confidence to trust in his ability to produce the superlative album of photos that we treasure."
Cameron & Jan
