You have seen images from my previous weddings and read the blurb about me. Now have a read of what my previous clients say about me. This is not some made up text from fake weddings. These testimonials are from genuine clients of mine.
Ginny and Mark – Woolacombe Bay Hotel
“We were recommended Matt by our wedding venue, the Woolacombe Bay Hotel, and after meeting him there was no question of looking any further.
His photography is breath-taking and exactly what we were after- naturalistic, relaxed and spectacularly beautiful artistic shots. The entire day is documented so well every moment is brought back to you, and quite a few have left us speechless.
Moreover Matt is an absolutely lovely guy – he is so friendly and relaxed he makes everyone instantly at ease. You spend most of your day in the company of your photographer and with Matt it’s a total pleasure, truly like having another mate around supporting you, something that we believe is an invaluable addition to a wedding experience above and beyond the terrific end result and something that money cannot buy.
Matt delivers. Everything and more. And we could not recommend him highly enough.”
Natalie and lloyd – Tunnels
Where do we start with feedback for Matt…..We live in Essex so arranging a wedding in Ilfracome was never going to be that easy however we held a couple of initial calls with Matt over Skype and loved his relaxed informal manner and knew he would be perfect to take the photos for our big day. We popped down to Devon a few months before the wedding and Matt kindly did a few shots with us as a pre engagement shoot which really helped us get to know him.
On the day itself, Matt was great. Really helpful, always ready to capture the moment and completely unobtrusive, so much you don’t even realise he’s there half the time capturing the moment. We love our photos and had the most amazing day ever which Matt really helped bring to life.
Thanks Matt for doing such a great job!
Natalie & Lloyd
Anna and Cameron – Tunnels Beaches
“I’ve been staring at a blank page of page for what seems like ages, but the truth is I just don’t know where to start with expressing our gratitude to you, Matt.
From the moment we met you at our chosen venue, you instantly put us at ease – not an easy thing to do, bearing in mind I’m not what you’d call photogenic and the thought of being the centre (or there abouts) of a photographer’s lens for a day makes me feel slightly less than comfortable…
But the photos (all 520 of them, not counting the further 100 or so from the photobooth- more of which in a minute) are stunning. You have given us the most amazing snapshots from what was a spectacular day, the fact you managed to portray/capture us (read me, as Anna always looks good in a photo) in such a good way, we (I) shall always be indebted to you. The way in which you documented the whole day has left us with some of the most treasured memories, which we shall never be bored of looking at.
The photobooth pictures are simply incredible in their own right, you only have to look through the images to appreciate the simplicity of the concept. Epic party + lowering of inhibitions = even more treasure memories and perhaps a more accurate portrayal of a wedding reception in full swing…
All of our guests have commented on how brilliant you were and we are so grateful that you could be such an important part of our wedding party for the day. We cannot thank you enough, Matt.
Cameron and Anna.”
Laura and James – Woolacombe Bay Hotel
“Matt provides an extremely friendly, helpful and efficient service which is everything you could want in a wedding photographer! We chose Matt as our wedding photographer because of the style in which he takes the photographs; subtle, not intrusive and capturing the emotion of the day. Our photos are a fantastic reminder of what was the most amazing day of our lives. They capture all of the special moments that could so easily be lost when you only have formal pictures. We can’t wait to start picking the photos for our album!”
Dan and Lucy – Winderhall Cumbria
“When you are planning your wedding, everyone always says that because of the emotions of the day you won’t be able to remember much of what happened. Your wedding photos are a permanent reminder and you want them to be perfect. For most of the time we didn’t even notice Matt snapping away, we just relaxed and enjoyed the whole day, we couldn’t have asked for better. Most of the shots were so natural and un-posed, capturing things that many people didn’t even see happening (or had a few drinks too many to remember) The photo’s are just perfect and everyone has commented on how beautiful they are. Thank you for such beautiful reminders of our special day, we can’t recommend you enough and wish you all the best in the future!!
Many Thanks – Dan & Lucy”
Michael and Amy Heron – Saunton Sands Wedding.
“A wedding photographer can either make or break your special day. We have heard plenty of horror stories where married couples have been really disappointed with their pictures. Therefore with much trepidation, my wife Amy, was given the dubious task of finding the right person to capture the emotion of our day on camera. The first time Amy spoke with Matt on the phone, she knew we had found our man. From that call, through to our meeting at the venue to discuss shots (how many photographers do that!) and on the day itself, Matt was absolutely tremendous. He was with us for the whole day, from the girls helping Amy to get ready at 7:30am, until the first dance in the evening. Matt was incredible value for money and tailored a package to suit our needs. The album book with our photos looks amazing and we couldn’t be happier with the result. My favourite memory of Matt on our wedding day, was when myself, Amy and our bridal party went down to the beach to have some pictures taken. Matt actually laid flat on his stomach in his suit on the sandy beach, so he could get the best angle for the picture! It was like having a good friend at our wedding who happened to be our photographer as well. I would recommend Matt to anyone who wants a special occasion captured beautifully, that will give them memories to last a lifetime”
Richard and Emma – Hartland Abbey
“Of course we’ll never forget our Wedding Day even though it absolutely flew by, but thanks to Matt we have a wonderful record of every aspect, from preparations to arrival to last dance, and all captured in a way that reflects the fun, relaxed atmosphere that all of our guests (and indeed Matt) contributed to on the day.”
Mike and Louise- Woolacombe Bay Hotel
We choose Matt to photograph our wedding on the recommendation of a friend and I have since recommended Matt to other friends and would happily recommend him again. Our photos were beautiful and we couldn’t have been happier. They were natural and really captured the emotion of the day as it happened. I was for the most part completely unaware of photos even being taken and yet there they were, wonderful moments: kisses, cuddles and warm embraces between friends and emotional family members. The day was perfect and our album acts as a true and wonderful collection, almost story book of our day. Matt was relaxed and fun to work with. He was just a like a long lost friend there to share in our special day. Absolutely loved him and the photos!
David and Charlie – Pickwell Manor
From Charlie – Both in the run up to our wedding and on the day itself, Matt was professional as well as great fun. He even, on the morning of the wedding, took images of the guys who went surfing at the local beach. We were very pleased with the after-wedding service and would certainly recommend Matt and his team.
