Hey There! I’m Matt, a relaxed & artistic, alternative wedding photographer in Wigan. I have been shooting weddings in Wigan from the moment I first picked up a camera, 13 years ago. So I’ve been capturing people’s wedding celebrations for quite a while. Photography has become more than a passion for me, I always get a kick of the new things to shoot with every new wedding I get to capture. With my defined approach to photographing weddings, you are guaranteed to have a timeless and unique view of your amazing day together.

My style is simple, it’s documentary with a hint of a contemporary style for portraits. In other words, really cool natural photos of you and your guests enjoying the day and even cooler wedding pictures of you both smashing the best day of your lives. I tend to let the day play out as natural as possible, making sure I’m able to capture real moments without too much interference. This doesn’t mean I hide away in corners, far from it! I’m right there in the thick of the action getting the best story telling images.

“Hiring Matt was probably the best decision we made in our wedding. He was so professional, he fit seamlessly into the day and was really flexible on the day. The photos tell the story of the day perfectly and capture everyone’s personalities, we just love them. I wouldn’t hesitate to book Matt for your day – honestly, you won’t regret it!”

Your Wedding Through My Eyes

Driven by an urge to capture human emotions and interactions with a heavy influence of street photography, an interesting approach to photography at weddings has been forged. 13 years in the making has fabricated my passion for hunting down unusual and interesting scenes throughout the day, while tailoring light and framing radical compositions I create compelling stills that stand out from the crowd.

Being a wedding photographer in Wigan I get to shoot at some great alternative wedding venues in and around the city such as Ashfield House, Alberts Standish, Kilhey Court,  & Wrightington Hotel, and many more. Places that really work with my particular style.

Epic Story Telling

I don’t hold back, I’m right in the thick of it with you and your guests, capturing all the epic moments of your day. You won’t find me hiding in a corner with a long lens, but you will find me getting really close to the action and immersing myself in the day, making sure no moment is left undocumented.

Artistic Portraits

Using what your venue has to offer, I take you away for 15 minutes to create some cool artistic portraits of you both. My aim is to make you look awesome but get you back to enjoying your day with your friends and family.
