I have booked Matt on a couple of occasions & his work is super. He is a perfectionist & will give his all. He also makes you feel comfortable when having your photograph taken... He delivers the images quickly & I will definitely book him again in the future More...

Matt was superb. He was recommended to us by our wedding venue and we couldn't be happier with the video and photographs that he captured throughout our wedding day. Wedding photographers can sometimes have a reputation of being a bit in your face and intrusive but Matt was not at all like that. He blended into the background and his ability to go unnoticed as he photographed meant that the photos were natural and not posed or forced at all. He arrived early and stayed much later than we expected. Matt was incredibly efficient with editing the video and photographs and we are so impressed with what he produced. On the day we were reluctant to do too many lovey dovey photos of the two of us but with Matt's relaxed and laid back manner we were actually really comfortable and they have turned out to be some of our favourite pictures!Our family and friends have all commented on how great the photographs are and we would strongly recommend Matt to any couples getting married. Thank you so much again Matt for capturing our day! More...

We found Matt after reading some good reviews online and checking out the beautiful photographs on his blog. We arranged to meet Matt and soon realised how passionate about photography he is. His attention to detail and enthusiasm made it an easy decision to book him for our day. We initially unsure about having an engagement shoot but we are so very glad we did as it was a lot of fun and made us feel much more relaxed about the big day. On our wedding day it was a real pleasure to have Matt with us. He managed to unobtrusively capture stunning photographs of our wedding day which we really treasure. Big thank you from both of us.

Used Matt twice now, firstly to do a shift photograph for a colleague who was retiring and then for a photo shoot with my fiancée and our dog. The massive difference between the two shoots demonstrates the versatility of this amazing photographer. Matt is the ultimate professional. Punctual, attentive and with a keen eye for the perfect shot. We have so many lovely, perfectly timed natural pictures now thanks to Matt. Though he specialises in child shoots and weddings, Matt worked a miracle photographing our dog Blaze. Never met a photographer so keen to please and get the absolute perfect image that you desire, Matt is very polite and will make you feel at ease straight away. When photographing its almost like he isn't there! No awkward feeling or the need to pose, just be yourself and Matt will get the perfect pictures. Would VERY HIGHLY recommend for anyone at all. You will not find a better photographer! More...

Matthew did a fantastic job in capturing our wedding. We are over the moon with our photos. His pictures allowed us to relive our wedding and see all the details we missed on the day. His style is just so beautiful! He captured every emotion, colour, expression and detail. We couldn’t have asked for more and if like me you are nervous in front of the camera, Matthew will be sure to put you at ease, one of our guests commented on how comfortable Matthew made them feel and how accommodating he was. I don't normally like photos of myself but Matthew captured some beautiful photos. Matthew captured the photos That I asked for. The group photo of all our guests looks fantastic and if going in pride place in our house. Thank you for captureing our wonderful memories. {Lisa & Matt} More...

Matt has such an amazing talent for capturing moments which is exactly what you want on your wedding day. It’s not the formal photos that remind you how great your day was. it’s the natural fun and excitement that is important to be documented. Matt's ability not to miss a moment is incredible, and his energy and passion comes across in the photos. He is able to blend in so well that your guests will not realise they’re being photographed. We could not recommend Matt more. More...

An excellent photographer! From booking Matt until the last snap taken at the end of the day - Matt has been an absolute pleasure to work with. On the day he was really attentive and got every shot perfectly, felt like we had known him for years, we had asked for candid photography and he listened to every request we had. The end pictures were superb and really made our wedding. I cant recommend Matt enough - he is an outstanding photographer and we are really glad he was ours for our big day. It wouldn't have gone so smoothly without him either, we are really grateful. Worth every penny and more, thanks so much. Lauren and Mike More...

Matthew was very professional throughout, on the day he listened to what we wanted, and made it a fun and relaxing experience. The final shots came through in an online gallery within a few days and they were amazing, he caught every moment.

I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

I recently received my wedding photo's from Matthew and I am so pleased with the end result. I could not have asked for anything more from Matthew. He was really professional but laid back on the day resulting in some gorgeous natural photographs and it definitely wasn't awkward. I would definitely recommend Matthew if you don't like those awkward poses and want some more natural and relaxed photographs. I am so happy with how ours turned out! More...

Hi Matthew, I just wanted to drop you a review to say a huge thank you to you for the beautiful wedding photos. You have created some stunning shots that take us back to the day each time we look at them. You’ve captured all the emotions, laughter and love perfectly. They have also been amazing to show family and friends that couldn’t make our day and all of them have said they feel like they were there after viewing them.
Thank you also for the reassurance you gave me the morning of the wedding! Not only would we recommend you – we would shout it from the rooftops! You got to know us as a couple and all the small intricacies of our wedding and the results are just phenomenal! ~ Charlotte & Lee

Matt is absolutely fantastic! I had the pleasure of filming a few of his shoots recently, two cake smashes and a baby portrait session, and both his manner with the children and his images are wonderful. He makes the families feel so at home in the studio, and the results he gets are brilliant. Highly recommended. More...

Me and my husband Mark had Matthew to photograph our wedding earlier this year and we couldn't be happier. Matthew captured the day perfectly and in a "natural" way just as he said he would, many of our guests even mentioned that they hardly noticed him around and didn't find them selves hiding away from the photographer like at some previous weddings.Again, thank you so much Matthew!

We knew from the moment we booked with Matthew for our wedding photography that we had made the right choice, after our initial message we received a reply in 6 minutes! Now obviously this isn't going to happen all the time but for comparison after getting in touch with some other photographers for details it took them over a week to get back to us so the reply straight away was just brilliant. Myself and my partner decided to have some pre wedding photographs done as a friend of ours who married last year had some done and we loved the idea so we arranged with Matthew to visit our wedding venue and the photographs are brilliant it made us so much more excited for the big day. When the day finally arrived the day was so busy filled with so much going on we really didn't even get much time to speak to Matthew but he was there throughout the day photographing literally everything! Our wedding album is now a perfect reminder of the day and we couldn't be happier with the results. More...

Superb! Matt is so good at what he does. I took my baby at 11 days old and I couldn't believe the things he could do. She was asleep in 5 mins after arriving screaming!

Will be back again! x

Top photographer! We took our little girl when she was a week old and the photographs are just beautiful. We spent a long time searching for a photographer and we are certain that we made the right choice.

The session lasted over 4 hours but we got to sit back and just watch with a coffee. The whole experience was great to be able to watch my little girl sleep so peacefully during. Matthew is very talented and we will be coming back for the 6 month session you offer.

Thank you again!

Matthew is the best photographer I have ever come across, seriously. I originally sent an email enquiry via the website with some queries I had as on a number of previous occasions I have paid allot of money and been very unhappy with the photographs I received after the session.

2 hours after I sent my enquiry I had a reply in my inbox addressing all my concerns and offering to pay nothing until I saw the finished photographs, for me this was a huge deal breaker as I had nothing to loose.

To cut a long story short, the photoshoot was excellent! My little baby boy and 4 year old girl were happy and laughing during the shoot and there are no horrible awkward poses.

Highly recommended!

Matthew was the photographer for my winter wedding at the end of 2014. I found him through google originally and scheduled a meeting the same week as I had left things a little late. The services was great from the original meeting I was filled with confidence that he was the photographer for me and on the day he couldn't have done more for me. We had some issues with the venue for our first dance but Matthew managed to sort everything out! First class service and the photos of our day are just perfect. More...
