Excellent photographer! Me and my partner are over the moon with our photographs and can’t thank you enough. Very happy and highly recommended

Lovely photographer whom I saw at my sisters wedding recently - would highly recommend!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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
