I’m Matilda, an award winning documentary wedding photographer based in Canterbury Kent, but photographing weddings in London, Sussex, across the UK and internationally. I specialise in fun, natural wedding photography immortalising all the little details and moments of your day that make up the bigger picture.
Your wedding is the biggest day of your life, and your wedding photos will be there for the rest of your life. That’s why choosing the right wedding photographer who will capture all the special moments of your big day and bring them to life for you for years to come is an important decision.
How I work as a Natural London, Sussex & Kent wedding photographer
Having documented and photographed a lot of weddings and life events in my time, I appreciate how important it is for you to feel comfortable with a photographer there capturing all those little moments that together make up the big day. No unnatural poses or endless group shots, I like to take photos of the dance floor going crazy; the handfuls of confetti joyfully being thrown at you by your favourite people; the moments of laughter that make you spit your drink out; or shiny eyes bright with tears of happiness. I catch you off-guard as you reach for your partner’s hand with a look of love. I photograph your beautiful dress, but make sure I get your muddy feet in too, where you’ve walked across a field to share a sunlit moment with your loved one; I get pictures of your mum’s dog stealing the show; the flower girls and page boys playing camp under the tablecloths. I tell the story of your life with pictures.
It’s a privilege and honour to be invited to be part of your wedding day, and I try to be as unobtrusive as possible, while working with you to make sure I capture what’s most important to you.

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.
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.
Wolf & Vanessa
Matilda’s photos are absolutely beautiful! She photographed our wedding, and captured all of the expressions, all of the moments, and all of the joy and love we felt throughout that day. She’s also the loveliest person, and was such a relaxed presence to have at the wedding. She made our guests feel at ease around a camera, and so many people came up to me at the wedding to say how wonderful she was. We’re so happy we found her to photograph our day!
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."
