A creative Devon wedding photographer for modern, relaxed couples

Hi, I’m Matt Bowen, a Devon wedding photographer, based in the beautiful South West of England covering weddings throughout the UK and further afield.

Chances are you’ve never had to look for wedding photography before. My aim is to make it as easy as possible for you while offering photography that captures the spirit of your wedding and the essence of you as a couple.

I also appreciate not everyone is comfortable being in front of the camera but I work in such a relaxed manner that I will put you at ease and you will come away with wedding photography that you will love and cherish for years to come.

If you're planning a Boho vibe for your wedding then you're going to love this Anran Devon wedding complete with outdoor ceremony by a lake.

Planning an intimate London wedding was made to look easy by Liz & Jack. They had their ceremony at Wandsworth Town Hall before their reception in a pub.

The attention to detail, the colours and the sense of fun at this Old Oak Farm wedding was off the scale. Lizzie & Laurence's wedding will really inspire you.



I have lots of experience of being a Devon wedding photographer having shot weddings all around the South West for nearly ten years now. I get to go to at least twenty weddings a year and I love every single one of them. Photographing weddings makes me feel so special.

I believe in you and your story. Your story of love, friendship, laughter, tears, emotion and joy.

Everything that has brought you to the place where you are now. I want to tell your story through my photography.

At each wedding it is my vision to create something unique to you as a couple.

Something that will transport you back to your big day each time you look at your images.



You don’t have to worry about me getting in the way and shouting at your guests to get in a line for photos.

I’m very much an unobtrusive observer of your day.

I’m calm in moments of stress, I’m a reassuring smile when you get down the aisle and I pour my heart into making sure you get a set of images which instantly take you back to a wonderful moment in time.

It’s my passion to create wedding photos which you’ll want to share with those closest to you. Not just now but in 5, 10, 20 years time.

I’ve been lucky enough to photograph at somer superb venues across Devon. Some of my favourites include the fabulous glass house at Anran Farm, Huntsham Court (where I got married myself), Rockbeare Manor near Exeter, Ash Barton and River Cottage HQ. They are all absolutely fantastic. I reckon St. Giles House in Dorset is also pretty special too.

What an incredibly special set of photographs, they document the day so beautifully.

I am lost for words to describe them. The shots are so rich and the colours are beautiful, each one has something special about it.

We are very lucky to have such a lovely set of wedding photos to keep within the family for years to come.

Thank you Matt, the touch you bring to these photographs is just incredible.. so natural and elegant..and lots of emotion.

We originally contacted Matt because we loved his creative and delicate style, and he did not disappoint.

From start to finish Matt was warm and easy to communicate with in our planning.

During our wedding, Matt fitted seamlessly into the day and his lovely, easy personality was just what we were looking for! Looking at the wedding photography now, he totally captured what we wanted and the outcome is beautiful.
