What a star, even when you have temperamental children, masses of bridesmaids, reluctant brothers and large crowd to deal with Jp still gets those shots! Made us all feel at ease, had me in fits of giggles! We now have photos that will create everlasting memories that we can share with our friends and family. Well recommended! And Pleasure to do business with.

Your unique banter kept everything light hearted throughout the entire day and was very much appreciated, I feel confident that you managed to capture some great shots and we all can’t wait to see the photo’s. Thanks again!!

A brilliant Photographet who “captures the moment” and, as a Toastmaster, JP is a dream to work with.
Cannt be commended highly enough.

If you are getting married or know somebody that is you HAVE to have JP as your wedding photographer or recommend him! JP wasn’t our original photographer, we were having somebody else and a week before the wedding she ended up in hospital, panic was not the word!! We were given JP’s contact details, I believe in fate, and JP doing our wedding was meant to be, I had actually given the photographer some examples of JP’s work that I had found online to show what I wanted my photos to look like! From the moment we first got in touch I knew everything was going to be ok!
On the day JP did an amazing job and lots of our guests commented on what a lovely guy he is!
JP….we literally have no words! The blog you have written is just so lovely and you have everything down to a ‘T’! Then the photos, we started scrolling down and each photo we came to we both let out a gasp! They are just beyond anything we could ever have hoped for! Truly truly stunning, they took our breath away! It was a complete blessing that we were able to have you with us on our wedding day taking our photos! A million thank you’s are not enough!
Lots of love Mr and Mrs Watts x

Having worked with JP a number of times I can safely say you won’t be disappointed. His enthusiasm and attention to detail is first class whilst keeping the mood lighthearted and ensuring everyone is relaxed (pictures look so much better when everyone is relaxed). Look no further…..

We had been to quite a few wedding fairs and seen a lot of photographers, thats were we first met JP. JPs personality shone through and instantly I knew I wanted him to be our photographer! He checked his diary and our date was free! so we made an appointment with him to run through his work and what he does. At our meeting JP made us feel at ease and wanted to get to know us which made it feel special and his work looked amazing! I came out of there happy and confident.

On the run up to the wedding we had contact with JP to run through the day with timings etc.

On the actual wedding day JP arrived and went about doing what he does best, taking photos! Making all the girls getting ready feel great and comfortable.

Throughout the whole day he just made it feel so personal, and professional! He got involved with all of our guests, not just the wedding party, they all commented on how nice/good he was.

JP we cannot thank you enough for making our day and memories so special.

If you are thinking about booking JP you will not regret it!

Wedding date 1/5/2016 Keeley and Darren

7 years on I looked through our wedding album again today. What a wonderful photographer we had. Could not fault a thing and you have left us with wonderful lasting memories for the years since and for years to come. Thank you

Joshua Haley  5 star

Hi John Paul,

It’s been 7 years now sins you were at our wedding and what a great day it was. Myself & Lucy just wanted to say we have been to a number of weddings in those 7 years and have realised what a great job you done not just on the day at our wedding but also the after care. I think what stood out for us was how you dealt with certain situations on the day. You never lost your cool and made everyone feel relaxed.

Shame I can’t say the same for some of the other photographers we have come across at other weddings. Most photographers are very annoying and get quite stressed!!

I would highly recommend you to all my family and friends. Even after 7 years we are so grateful for the job you done and are still doing for us even now.

Thanks again John Paul.

Josh, Lucy & Family

As soon as we met JP we had decided that we wanted him to photograph our day (before we had even booked a venue & date). We fell in love with his beautiful work and lovely personality within minutes.

On the day JP made our guests feel at ease and everyone has complimented on what a lovely guy he is!
A very talented man with a really great personality. We all loved his banter too! JP not only took photos but chatted to our guests too… which also helped them to relax around the camera.
It was so lovely to have JP at our wedding, he was a big part of making our day so perfect. We cannot thank him enough.
He has already shown us some of the photos too and they are amazing!!!

Thank you JP for being a part of our special day and for all your hard (and amazing) work!
A very talented, lovely, patient, polite guy with an awesome sense of humour…... We really cannot thank you enough!! xxx

My sister first used JP at her wedding where he captured such beautiful photos through out the day. He captured so many beautiful memories that will last forever. We had a last minute brain wave (literally last week) to get a photo of us all done for my mum for her 60th and JP managed to squeeze us in last minute and take some stunning photos that made the perfect gift for our mum.

JP is a genuinely lovely guy who will always go that extra mile to ensure you are happy with your photos – Completely professional, always makes you feel totally relaxed and will ALWAYS deliver the most perfect photos. Thank you again JP for your amazing photography and service xxx

Barney Grossman  5 star 
I’ve worked with JP at many weddings over the year. Certainly one of the nices blokes to work with, and he’s humour ensure all the photos have natural smiles rather than the “say cheese” type. Wouldn’t hestitate to highly recommend JP and his work!
Adrian Holder 5 star
John Paul was the official photographer for two of my best friends earlier this year at their wedding. To say I was blown away by his photographs and ability to become part of the wedding day is an understatement! The wedding day was amazing and he is genuinely lovely bloke who brings the best out of all! The wedding album he left them with will provide them and their friends with a life time of memories! Highly recommended and when my turn arrives he is the only guy I will be trusting!

Denise Buck  – 5 star

John Paul was the photographer for my daughter and her husbands wedding, Keryl and Daniel Hunt, on 6th June 2015. Lovely man, lovely photos. Everything about John Paul is excellent he makes you feel totally at ease whilst taking your photos. He has a wonderful knack when working with children as well as adults. He has an eye for wonderful natural looking photos. When you see the photos he has taken you are totally surprised at the lovely images he manages to capture especially of the children. He fills the day with humour whilst being 100% professional. I would recommend John Paul every time. Thank you John Paul for the wonderful memories of our daughters wedding that you captured for us. Kind regards Denise Buck

Carly Wright 5 star

We first met John Paul at a wedding fayre at the start of 2014 and he instantly made us feel welcome. We instantly knew this was the photographer for us, we wanted someone fun and who we could connect with on the day, also wanting our family and friends to feel at ease with our photographer and in John Paul we found this. John Paul photographed our wedding in June this year and he certainly didn’t disappoint! He was just brilliant on the day and everyone at our wedding has said how great he was on the day! The photos he took are stunning and being able to capture special moments of our special day is just priceless! We are both so happy we picked you JP and we will certainly be recommending you to any future family or friends that are getting married!

Having worked with John Paul on many occasions, (with our classic wedding cars), I can say he is an extremely professional photographer, with that personal touch. He is booked to photograph my Son’s wedding in two weeks time, he was top of the list to record the day.

Deanne Whiting 5 star I ridiculously have a fear of having photos taken as you can imagine on a wedding day, photos are a big part of that and I’m sure I was a nightmare! We searched for a photographer who I clicked with, so on the day I felt as comfortable as possible. As soon as we met JP I knew straight away he was going to be perfect and we weren’t disappointed. On the day he was careful and discreet and captured all the amazing moments of our incredible day and we didn’t even know he was there!! Our family and friends adored him and had some great banter. We now have great memories we can keep forever of our special day. Thank you JP, you were wonderful!

Dear JP,
We would both like to thank you for not only being a top photographer but a top man too.
When choosing suppliers and people to ensure everything is perfect for our wedding day we admit it was a little hard, I guess because we are literally putting the responsibility of someone taking our shots for our big day that we will never regain again.
When reading magazines beforehand as you do, we both decided that photos and a good video we would invest in the most to hold the most value ,which is our memories.
When we met you at your studio it was like a breath of fresh air, all that anxiety just disappeared it felt like we had known you for 10 years and you seemed to just fit in like a jigsaw puzzle and understood what we wanted.
We knew right from the start we had the right person for the job ( apart from you being a spurs fan of course) we wanted someone we could trust, cares about what we wanted and without being overly priced.
Personally I hate having my picture taken but you reassured me it will be ok! and it was.
On the day you were so calming and even though I knew you were there taking photos and chatting to family and friends,but also in a nice way I didn’t notice you were there, but somehow somewhere you managed to be hidden and appear from a tree,log or building to capture the natural shots and not miss a trick however you did make us laugh.
You also picked up and sensed the type of guests, crowd and atmosphere and mingled in.
Right from the start I said to you ” please do not feel uncomfortable I want you join in with us and feel you are part of the family” to which you did and we knew this because of how many family and friends commented and said what a fantastic photographer you are and how funny you were too.
Your moments and captures were spot on and even took shots that we wouldn’t have even thought of.
You accommodated every little detail from tears, emotion, laughter,the old and young generation,silly moments and even the natural drunken ones too!! , it literally was a story book!
Everyone says “Your wedding day will go too fast so make sure you take a step back and try and take it all in” and now I know why people have said that to us because it’s true, but having said that once we see the photos you did capture every little detail and with this we re – lived the whole day again so thank you!
We just like to thank you personally for an amazing job your work is impeccable, your personality , friendly but overall professional character we will never forget! Thank you JP – Claire and Craig X
