A creative Devon wedding photographer for
modern, relaxed couples

Hi, I’m Matt, a Devon wedding photographer, although I travel all over the country. Chances are you’ve never done this before. My aim is to make it as easy as possible for you.¬† There’s also a really high chance that you’re going to tell me at some point that you don’t like having your picture taken. Guess what? Most of the people in the images on this website told me exactly the same thing and they have all come away with photos that they will love and cherish for years to come.

Sharing stories

I believe in people and their stories. Their stories of love, friendship, laughter, tears, emotion and joy. Everything that has brought you to the place where you are now. I want to tell those stories through my photography.



I have lots of experience of being a Devon wedding photographer having shot weddings all around the county for nearly ten years now. I get to go to at least twenty weddings a year and I love every single one of them.

For me it’s about the people. People over everything. You’re not a bouquet of flowers or a pair of shoes. You’re not defined by a seating chart or a guest book.

It’s the people around you that make you.

The ones buttoning your dress or fixing your tie, the ones holding your hand and watching your back. The ones going nuts on the dance floor and the ones who’ve been with you every time you have needed them.



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 photographs which you’ll want to share with those closest to you. Not just now but in 5, 10, 20 years time.

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 photographs 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 photos now, he totally captured what we wanted and the outcome is beautiful.



I know I am one of many photographers out there competing for your attention. If you have connected with my images then that is great. My favourite weddings are the ones where we connect as people and you connect with my work.

That leads to you trusting me to do what I do and tell the story of your wedding in my own special way. The images on this website and in my blog best tell the story of how I work. I used to be a journalist so I like stories and people and I use a documentary style to tell that story.

Most weddings have their structured elements and you know what’s going to happen, yet every wedding is different and that is because of the people. There’s a new story to be told every time I pick up my camera. I’m not there to get in the way, I’m there to watch it unfold with all its characters and the details.

It will be beautiful.
