It is a great honour and privilege to photograph a wedding, so I consider myself very lucky to document around 35 a year.

I’ve been doing this for a long time and I never cease to be amazed by the love, creativity and vision of each of my couples.

While you’re busy saying ‘I Do’ and celebrating with friends and family, I’ll be busy capturing the story of your day. From the big, romantic gestures down to the smallest details, I’m dedicated to documenting every moment. I love mixing with guests and I’ve been reliably informed that my friendly personality puts everyone at ease.

The end result is a beautiful selection of relaxed, natural and joyful photographs of your special day.

Matthew was a pleasure to work with. We had a 'mature ' wedding (both in our 50s) and the pictures reflected the amazing fun filled happy family day (& evening) we had at Prested Hall. Matthew was always highly professional and innovative in chosing some of the shots, making the most of the environment and making a 'mature' bride feel much younger and radiant. Would highly recommend Visions of View for all occasions.

Matt and Siobhan photographed our wedding 7 years ago. They are simply wonderful. They worked non stop the whole day and gave us such amazing photos to remember our day. Matt also took photos of our newborn and again, we were thrilled with the idea photos. Creative, dedicated and passionate sums VoV up ????

I honestly couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer. We got exactly what we asked for, we have an album full of amazing pictures.

I could not recommend more highly.

Visions of view photographed our wedding in October 2015 and we honestly couldn't have been happier with the level of service and photographs. We were very conscious that we wanted it to be relaxed to capture all those natural moments and Matt completely got this. We had to have a few 'staged' photos as family had requested them, but even these were done with no effort or awkwardness. Thoroughly recommend using Visions Of View.

We could not have been happier with Matt’s services as the photographer for our wedding; his wide range of packages offer so much flexibility and the standard is really top quality. The first thing that we liked about Matt was his friendly but professional attitude, and his really quick l response to any queries. We felt he really listened to what we wanted from our wedding photos, and as such, he represented our day in great detail, with complete accuracy, and produced a wonderful array of informal and formal shots. There was plenty of shots of every part of the day, including all the guests, and he managed to get through the group shots and our portrait shots without taking us away from our drinks reception for too long. We really could not be happier with the photographs he produced. The style, quantity, quality, accessibility of downloading them afterward, and the speed at which he processed the images were all extremely impressive and another great reason to choose him as your wedding photographer. I would recommend him wholeheartedly, and would use him again in an instant for other important events that required a photographer.

Matt - was amazing! His ability to get so many great shots without us even noticing. He was great to work with and was very flexible considering our not so traditional theme and day! Thank you!

Matt photographed our wedding and from the moment he stepped through the door at my mums on the busy nervous morning he put us all at ease. With his freindly warm personality. He was amazing with my 4 year old son who is normally shy. All my guests commented how nice a guy matt was and really good at his job. A few weeks later we recieved our photos and there was the proof that Matt was amazing at his job and captured the day just how we wanted and nothing was ever too much trouble for him. I would highly recommend Matt he is very talented and good at his job.

Matt photographed our wedding in June 2013. We were so happy with the pictures, they were just the kind of photographs we were hoping for. Lots of gorgeous natural shots of our family and friends having a wonderful day! Also really happy with all the shots of us, now the challenge is to decide which ones to get framed and up on the wall! Matt traveled well out of his way to shoot our wedding and even stayed over night the day before so that he could come and meet us at the venue, which really set our minds at ease. He was a total professional on the day and we warmed to his personality immediately, really friendly and personable. Would definitely recommend Visions of View for your photography needs.

Wonderful photos and a wonderful photographer. Matthew made the whole day really easy and had his own really helpful suggestions, as well as accommodating our special requests. We were worried, as the weather on the day was awful, but he still managed to produce beautiful images that we will always treasure. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Matt and Siobhan were there to capture our wedding day last year. The pictures were wonderful and we now have the most amazing album to remind us of our special day, I go through it at least once a week.

I have lost count of all the friends and family that have commented on how professional they were. The service we got on the day was exactly what we asked for, I gave Matt a list of group photos that we wanted and after that we gave them a free rein to get as many shots as possible. What we were presented with was a disc that documented our day perfectly.

I really could not recommend Visions of View more, if you are looking for a photographer for your special occasion you do not have to look any further.

Visions of View did the photography for our wedding in May 2011. We spent a long time looking around for someone to photograph our special day. A friend of mine recommended Visions of View and after looking at their work I decided I liked their style of photography and took the plunge and booked them. I certainly wasn’t disappointed. From our initial contact you can tell that Visions of View are very professional, always taking the time to respond to our many queries. We also had a meeting with them before the big day and they listed every photo that I had wanted to be taken with relatives, they even suggested photos that we hadn’t even thought of ourselves. They are ultra prepared before the big day even arrives.

What really struck me was that they really went the extra mile and without me even asking, they went to my reception venue to speak with the Head of House prior to our big day. I desperately wanted pictures taken in a private area of the grounds where the Head of House do not normally allow the hirers, there was a beautiful area there where I had an idea for my perfect wedding shot. On the morning of my wedding they proudly told me that he had made nice with the Head of House and had cleared it for us to be able to take photographs in the place I had wanted. I also had a very strict Vicar at the church where we got married who never lets the official photographer stand at the top of the aisle, making them take photo’s from up in the gallery instead. Well they had worked their charms again and the Vicar allowed them to get the best shots in the church as well.

Visions of View are very good at getting the entire wedding party together for large shots, something I am sure every photographer dreads and with my lot this was never going to be an any task but of course Visions of View organised everyone with ease.

The main thing for me is that with Visions of View you can tell, that to them this isn’t just another wedding, they take pride in getting those perfect photos and you can sense their excitement when they know they have taken a cracking shot. They are also very enthusiastic and encourage you to try all sorts of poses and positions. We are the sort of people who certainly need some direction from the photographer and direct they did. I have some simply stunning shots of my wedding day which are displayed all over my house and everyone who visits comments on how lovely they are. I can honestly say I only have Visions of View to thank for that.

I would not hesitate in recommending them to photograph your special day because you would not be disappointed. In fact I provided some of my favourite images taken by Visions of View to the ladies who had done all the hair and make-up for our wedding and she said they were some of the best images she had ever seen.

Excellent, personable and professional. Our wedding photographs were wonderful and the photographers took great care to be unobtrusive whilst also managing to get all of the formal shots that we wanted. Thank you very much!

Matt and Siobhan did the photos for our wedding in London in February at very short notice. They were amazing - really fun, friendly, and fantastic at working with the short period of daylight time they had to get some brilliant photos. We feel really lucky to have stumbled upon them and would wholeheartedly recommend them!

Visions of View Q&A

Visions of View Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

I wish there was just one secret but I think it takes a lot of little things to get a truly great photograph.
Overall I’d say having a good eye for composition and the structure of a photograph is important. This might mean looking for the little details that will help tell the story or making sure there isn’t some random object in the background that will ruin the shot. It takes a lot of time and practice before you start getting this right.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

For me, it’s really important to get to know the clients well; it allows me capture their personalities on the day. I’ll ask about their personal style and tastes, and if they have any cool or unique interests/hobbies we can potentially incorporate somehow.
I’ll obviously ask if they have a particular photographic style they love. And if there are any must-have photographs on the day. Some couples want formal portraits whereas others are happy for me to just snap away, so it’s good to know where they stand.
Finally, I ask if they have any questions for me.

What do you love most about your job?

Every single wedding is different. Every couple is unique. It never gets boring.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Like most business owners, I started simply because I wanted to follow my passion. The freedom and creativity that comes with owning your own business is definitely a nice bonus.

Why should our clients choose you?

I’m friendly, approachable and down to earth. I like to mingle with the guests to make them feel more comfortable around the camera; it always leads to better shots.
I also have a huge portfolio and years of experience. I cover up to 32 weddings a year and I love it. I genuinely enjoy my job and I think that shows in the work.
Oh, and my prices are really competitive!
