My work is about moments! I have a relaxed, creative, documentary approach inspired by the classic simplicity of vintage styles. My collections have a natural, timeless look but also a sense of fun.


How far will you travel?

I love to travel, and it's always great to work in new places! I am very happy to travel for the pleasure for photographing your wedding! For events more than 90 minutes drive may request overnight accommodation with you to make sure I'm at my best and don't get caught in traffic.

Can we chat to you before we book?

Absolutely! I know just how important this decision is and would love to hear about your plans! I am delighted to have a no obligation phone or video call with you which will help make sure that we are right for each other.

When will we get our gallery?

Your gallery will be ready within 4 to 6 weeks depending on the time of year. I will always send you a set of up to 10 sneak peek photos within 5 days so you can share the excitement on Social Media

What do your packages include?

I have three standard packages which include a fully digital option and two which include a beautiful hand made album. Every wedding is unique and will I will create a package that means I will be there when you want me, from morning preparations to the fun of the dance floor! I have a range of extras including second photographers and priority delivery. There is also 25% discount on engagement shoots for couples who book their wedding with me.

Tell me about the wedding experience?

My approach is simple relaxed and natural. Weddings and wedding photography are about emotions, moments, and memories. My job is to capture them naturally and spontaneously. For most of your day I will work in a relaxed documentary way. I don't shout instructions, do elaborate set ups or stop everything to get a shot. One my favourite parts of the day is taking a few minutes to take some couple portraits. This is a great time for you to take a few moments focussed on each other to get some beautiful, elegant photos of you together. I am a dancer myself, and I love the energy of the dance floor. I will stay and catch some of the evening's fun.


We love the photos Matt, thank you so much! We love the beautiful album and design.
