I’m proud to be the region’s only wedding photographer with a studio.  This offers a lot of piece of mind when booking such an important part of your wedding day. I’ll handhold you right through your wedding journey, helping plan your day’s timings.  I have an impeccable relationship with all local wedding venues, which helps make sure your day goes seamlessly to plan.  


Why Matthew Rycraft Photography?

Photography & art has been in my family for three generations.  I was using my first camera at eight years old & haven’t had one out of my hands since. Over 30 years of my passion with photography will shine through to your wedding photographs. With a relaxed but professional style, I’ll guide you through your wedding day.  I blend into the background, capturing those natural moments, so you’ll barely notice I’m there.  Once the wedding photographs are ready you’ll be invited to my studio in Southport, Merseyside, for your private viewing where you’ll see your wedding photographs for the first time.
