A photographer from Rishton has won a top wedding award after being voted as one of the best professionals in the industry.

Paul Swift, owner of Paul Swift Photography, is celebrating a double accolade win of being named the best photographer in two wedding awards.

Speaking on his double-award triumph, Paul said: "It's wonderful to be recognised for my exceptional work and the trust I build with my couples.

"I’d like to say a huge thank you for their kind recommendations and I look forward to building on these award wins as I go from strength to strength.”

“My aim at your wedding is simple, ensure you have the best day ever, do whatever I can to help, whilst making sure I tell your story in the best way possible”.

Paul Swift Photography, and thousands of other wedding professionals have just come out of the ‘wedding boom’ following hundreds of thousands of delayed celebrations.

Speaking on this, José Melo, vice president of Sales for Europe at Hitched.co.uk, said:  "After two very difficult years of the pandemic for the sector, where professionals had to halt their activity and suffered great losses, this year we can finally talk about an edition where weddings were celebrated big.

"The professionals have worked long hours, without weekends of and have extended the season during practically all of 2022.

“Therefore, above and beyond individual recognition, the celebration of the Wedding Awards 2023 seeks to serve as a tribute to all those professionals and businesses that gave everything to make the recovery of the industry a reality.”
