Wedding Photography Workshop

Capture: A Wedding Photography Workshop


After lots of interest and several months of planning, I’m delighted to announce a new 1:1 mentoring and wedding photography workshop programme for aspiring wedding photographers. A tailored, bespoke day just for you, not a room full of people.

The last six years have been a fantastic journey for me as a creative wedding photographer. I’ve shot over 185 weddings all over the UK and abroad, from intimate weddings with 20 people to large Greek weddings with over 300 guests. During this time fellow photographers at all stages of their own journey in the photography world have followed my work and I’ve found the process of offering feedback and advice very rewarding and would now like to open it up to more fellow photographers.

Kate & Martin / Temple Church

Temple Church Wedding Photography

There's something special about a central London wedding as this was no different but a Temple Church Wedding certainly got my attention!! The setting was stunning, the Temple Church (Knights Templar) which was used in the filming of the famous 'The Da Vinci Code'. Tucked into a quiet courtyard inside a maze of buildings in the heart of London, The Temple Church is a unique place of worship from the 12th Century that stands as a testament to the Templars who built it.

Kate and Martin had both studied at The Inner Temple as barristers so the location was of great importance to them. Although the weather wasn't on our side we managed to use our time wisely and get all the shots we wanted. Temple Church Wedding Photography is a real honour and certainly not an opportunity to be missed.

The reception followed at 'The Fable' just a few hundred yards up the road for a wonderful wedding breakfast and evening's celebrations.

Venues:- Temple Church, The Fable, London


Kind words:- "Matt was exceptional in every regard. Hopefully, you only get married once, so there are no second chances at getting the right moments captured. Matt caught everything we could have wanted and done so in such an inconspicuous manner that we really had no idea we were being photographed - he just blended in from start to finish.

From being in several locations across London at the crack of dawn to managing tricky lighting conditions with a temperamental March day, he got the lot and every photo was perfectly balanced. His editing was superb, every photo looked natural which is what we had asked for. He was efficient in getting through the formal photographs without taking up too much time and not once did we have to guide or direct him, he just slotted in and was extremely professional. He was also a pleasure to deal with making the experience a lot more reassuring and simple than it could otherwise have been.

Picking a wedding photographer is not an easy job and you can spend a lot of time trawling through websites, but we can say without any hesitation that if you go with Matt you will be relieved and delighted. He is everything that a wedding photographer should be and we would recommend him to everyone"

Woodhall Manor Wedding Photography

This was my first time at the famous Woodhall Manor in Suffolk, an acclaimed wedding venue. It was a particularly enjoyable challenge for me as, thanks to plenty of fog, I was able to test my capabilities of producing work in rather difficult light conditions! Upon entering Woodhall Manor through its majestic wrought iron gates (closely guarded by a pair of stone eagles), you’re greeted by the breathtaking splendour of the Grade II listed Elizabethan property and surrounding grounds. It’s quite the place for a splendid occasion.

Woodhall Manor Wedding Photography

There’s something about shooting a wedding at this time of the year that’s very evocative – quite different scenes and atmosphere to the busy summer season and it felt like the perfect way to end the year. That, married to the stunning setting made my job of documenting proceedings a real pleasure.

Venue:- Woodhall Manor


Here's the story of their day...

Helen & Jason / Devonshire Terrace

Devonshire Terrace Wedding Photography

A Devonshire Terrace wedding is always a great event and this one was a particularly fun one for me, as I got to indulge my love of football at this wedding. Jason, the groom, is an ardent Leicester City fan and season ticket holder, and I enjoyed being able to capture him and his party with a Leicester City flag as part of the proceedings. Leicester won the Premier League title this spring, so I can only imagine that Jason has had a pretty perfect year, seeing those events unfold ahead of his marriage to the beautiful Helen.

Having shot Jason’s sister’s wedding previously, it was a pleasure to recognise some faces from that day too, and of course, flattering to be asked back to for another family event.

Devonshire Terrace Wedding Photography

I really enjoyed shooting at Devonshire Terrace in the City district of London – the courtyard venue was striking and elegant with a nice modernist feel to it. Something about shooting a wedding at the heart of London feels rather exciting and grand, and the day was only improved by the lovely autumn weather and convivial atmosphere. The settings and arrangements across the day continued the theme of elegance, and in truth, makes weddings like this easy to shoot!


Kind words...Matt is incredible on the day. He helps to keep the flow of the day going without ever being pushy. Happy to oblige last minute decisions whilst giving invaluable input on locations for photos. As the day progresses he slips into the background and captures the event perfectly. The quality of his work has been excellent and his documentary style of photography has produced an incredibly natural catalogue of photos of our day.

Kind words....“Matt was exceptional from start to finish.

We cannot recommend Matt's service highly enough and we look forward to seeing him again at my sister's wedding next year!”

Newland Hall Wedding Photography

Katy & Tom / Newland Hall / Sept 2016

A wonderful, emotional Newland Hall wedding and in some ways cathartic wedding day at the fittingly sumptuous Newland Hall. Katy and Tom are truly lovely people who, over the past couple of years, have not enjoyed the happiness in life that they deserve. As fun and exciting as weddings are, a photographer’s job is to remove themselves slightly from proceedings, so they can ably capture the experience and joy of others; when looking through the viewfinder, sometimes it can feel like you’re not quite there. Because of this, I find myself working largely unaffected by those moments of great emotion that every wedding has – little, barely perceptible moments of great humanity delivered in the words and on the faces of those attending and taking part - hoping instead just to capture them for others. This wedding however, was a little different. I’m convinced that there wasn’t a dry eye in the house during the speeches, and the day as a whole felt energised by great emotion. It was a tremendously affecting experience.

Newland Hall Wedding Photography

I feel truly honoured that Katy and Tom entrusted me to capture their brilliant day that felt like it was something even greater than most people’s biggest occasion. Naturally, I’m also delighted that they were so happy with the images I delivered.

The wedding started at the impressive Writtle Church before moving onto Newland Hall, Roxwell.

Here’s the story of their day…

 


Copdock Hall Wedding Photography

Jess and Michael / Copdock Hall

Copdock Hall Wedding Photography

A brilliant Copdock Hall wedding day spent in the company of Jess and Michael at Copdock Hall in Ipswich. A Suffolk country wedding gets you excited and this was no different. Jess and Michael really are a brilliant fun couple with everything in front of them. The day started at Jess' parents' house with the bridal prep. Jess being Jess was completely unfazed by it all and was sat in the window doing her own makeup as I arrived. Her fellow bridesmaids were spread around the house in different rooms doing their own thing, which set the tone for a completely relaxed and fun day. Copdock Hall Wedding Photography is a real honour and something you need to make the most of!

As we arrived at Copdock Hall I went to see Michael who was equally as calm! I thought weddings were meant to be a nervous occasion, but certainly not here.

Copdock Hall Wedding Photography

The beautifully laid-back ceremony went well and the day really started to unfold with Jess' fine planning and foresight coming to fruition. Everything from an abundance of cakes and biscuits to space hopper races, dress malfunctions and pure alcohol bliss, this wedding really was a special day. It really was a pleasure to shoot and I thanks Jess and Michael for entrusting me with the honour.

I wish them all the luck in the world and believe they've recently had a little addition to the family! Congrats to you all.

Venue:- Copdock Hall


Kind words..."Matt was the perfect photographer. We have the most beautiful photographs full of wonderful memories from our day. He got the balance of being professional yet friendly spot on. He took photographs we didn't know we wanted, and captured moments we didn't know had happened. If you like the style of Matt's photography, book him. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Matt x"

The stunning Vaulty Manor wedding of Paula & Rob.

Kind words...“We can't recommend Matt highly enough. Not only are his photos outstanding, and capture every memory you hope for and more, but his calm and relaxed presence on our day was exactly what we needed. Nothing was too much trouble, and he managed all family and friends without any fuss at all, and kept us feeling totally relaxed all day. We loved the pictures he took when we didn't know they were being taken, beautiful extra touches. From the first time we met Matt we knew he was the photographer for us, and you will not be disappointed in the slightest if you book him.
