2022 HANNAH DOW: “I had matt on social media for around 7 years after coming across a picture he took of a bride and from that moment I always knew I wanted him as my wedding photographer!! So when my now husband asked me there was only 1 person I was booking which was matt! The pictures he delivered on the day was amazing!!!! ” 

2022 THOM RIMMER: “From start to finish our experience with Matt has been nothing but first class. Neither my wife or I are particularly comfortable infront of the camera but Matt made us both feel at ease from our first consultation right through to the last shot on the day itself.” 

2022 KATIE GRIFFIN: “Wow, where do I start? I knew we wanted Matthew to be part of our special day as soon as we booked the venue. Matthew had been the photographer at a close friend’s wedding and Sam and I both loved the photos. Every step of the way and even through covid, Matt was easily contactable and sorted things out quickly.”
