I love recording the memories that might have went missed, the laughs, the smiles, the tears, each and every moment that makes your wedding day so special. Your images will contain a medley of fun, elegant and heart-warming moments together to be treasured forever.

It’s your day and you need to feel comfortable, I want to take the photos that are meaningful to you, aiming to surprise you with images that you didn't even know you wanted.

Matthew, we can't thank you enough. You captured every special moment of our day. Your stunning photos mean so much to us. From the beautiful, intricate details to the gorgeous landscape shots. We were so comfortable with all of your suggestions and ideas. You put us and our guests at ease and this is reflected in all of our wedding photos. So natural. Thanks again. Highly recommended.

My husband Chris and I had the absolute pleasure of having Matthew as our Wedding photographer. Not only is he the nicest guy to have with you on your special day, he is very professional and the quality of his photos are superb. We had all of our pictures within a matter of a few weeks and we couldn’t have been happier with how they turned out. So if you are in need of a very reasonably priced friendly photographer, Matthew is the man for the job!!

Matthew has taken stunning photographs for our wedding last October and of our baby daughter Isla who we welcomed in March this year. At our wedding my husband and I were put at ease right away with his professionalism and genuine nature. He was also considerate to our guests who wanted to take photos themselves! He captured exactly what I wanted - the little natural moments and relaxed atmosphere of the day. He also had an excellent manner with our daughter, making her smile and giggle and pull faces - giving us some truly special images that are displayed in our home proudly and that we will treasure forever! Thank you again Matthew for capturing our special memories! X

Matthew, it was a pleasure having you as our Wedding Photographer this past August. You managed to capture every special moment of our day, from everyone getting ready, through the ceremony, and up until the party started! You definitely got all the little details. You let us enjoy the day, you were very relaxed in asking us to pose…but there are some great natural photos you got as well. You made us and all of our guest fell at ease, which really showed in our photos.


If you are thinking of a photographer for your wedding, or perhaps any occasion, we highly recommend Matthew!
