Award winning Uk and Kent Documentary Wedding Photographer 

It is a privilege and honour to be with you on your wedding day. It is after all one of the most significant days of your life. It’s so important to me that you get the photography that you deserve, that you feel comfortable, no forced poses, just natural, stylish wedding photography. If that sounds like the kind of wedding photography you would like, the kind of wedding photography that values moments over endless group photos, then you are in the right place. Your wedding is about having all your favourite people in one place and having the best party you will ever throw. That is what I love to photograph ; the dance floor going crazy ; tonnes of confetti being chucked in your faces; laughter that makes you spit your drink out your mouth; tears of joy; you looking gorgeous in your stylish dress, but with muddy feet from where we walked across the field to get a killer portrait in some pretty light ; your mum’s dog begging guest for a canapé; the little flower girls with flower crowns, covered in mud from playing under the drinks table; big hugs and all the love.

Kind words from recent couples, that mean the world to me…

Rebecca & Chris

Chosing Matilda to be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions that we made - the photos she took of our wedding exceeded all our expectations. She made us feel completely at ease for the pictures of us as a couple and captured so many natural and special shots of us and our guests throughout the day - we can’t work out how she managed to be both invisible and in three places at once at any given time. Matilda was warm, thoughtful, efficient and an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the whole process, and thanks to her we have the most beautiful record of our day which we are absolutely delighted with. This lady has serious talent.

Catherine & Tim

"Thank you for sending over the photos. I held off all day, and we opened them together once I got back from work. You captured it all so perfectly. We had such a laugh, which you can definitely tell from the photos. Feeling relaxed about the wedding photos, so thank you!"

Briony & Jon

"Cannot even put into words how pleased we were with our photos - absolutely stunning and perfect in every way. Matilda was so excellent on the day - half the time you didn't even know you were being photographed making for some lovely natural expressions. The photos are perfect: exactly what we wanted and so much more."

Jo & Huw

"I can't even begin to thank you for everything! From our amazing engagement shoot, to our lovely day.
It was so reassuring how relaxed and comfortable you made us both feel and you can see that in the photos, how much we enjoyed your company.
When our photos arrived we couldn't have been happier! You captured our day so amazingly and it was so much more than we anticipated.
We had the best day ever and thank you so much for being a part of it.
Thank you again for everything."

Deborah and Andy

We are so happy we choose Matilda to photograph our wedding. She managed to capture how our wedding day felt to us, rather than just how it might have looked to other people.

Matilda took the time to get to know us and make us feel comfortable, which really shows in the photographs. She mixed in with the wedding so well the photos all look natural, fun and unposed.

Looking back on the slideshow Matilda made of the wedding feels like reliving the day. The quality of the photos blew us away.
