Photography Style

Reportage / Documentary
Full Description
Located on beautiful Saddleworth Moor, on the edges of Greater Manchester, I've been lucky enough to work as a documentary wedding photographer for over ten years now. My aim is simple, to provide wedding photography that you, your friends and family will love for years to come. I photograph weddings as they happen, but throwing in a little of my own creative style. Whilst some people will always want family group photos (and I'm happy to provide them) my focus is on those genuine, unposed moments that are part of every wedding day. I look to blend in to the background and let you enjoy your day as it happens. Most weddings I shoot are around Greater Manchester, and the surrounding counties of Cheshire, Lancashire, West Yorkshire and the Peak District. I've also covered weddings at venues further afield including Ireland, Cyprus, the United States and Nepal! Come and have a look at my site to see what I’ve been up to…

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Matthew
Wilkinson Photography have covered over 100 weddings all over the North West, the UK and abroad. My style is to blend in to the background and capture the real emotion and fun of your wedding day. I work in a documentary/reportage style meaning I'll be looking to capture the day as a whole, capturing those key moments, but also looking for the little details that make up the day as a whole.

I can't recommend him enough
Matt did an outstanding job on our wedding photos. From the initial meeting to the day, nothing was too much for him. His services are second to none, setting up shots and providing the photo booth on the day. The best thing you can say is that I can't recommend him enough. If you want great shots for your wedding/event, then use Matt. You will not be disappointed.

"we promise you won't be disappointed."
"Matt captured our day beautifully. Your wedding day is honestly the best day of your life and to have such incredible photographs to show this is a testament to Matt's creative thinking and talented snaps. You can relax knowing that all your precious moments and important memories will be captured on the day without being conscious that there is a camera out and about! The informal consultation before the big day really helps both parties to get to know each other and produce something so lovely and memorable. Not a dry eye in the house! Matt comes highly recommended - we promise you won't be disappointed."

"Couldn't recommend enough!"
Couldn't recommend enough! Matt took fantastic images of our Belfast wedding in October. He documented the day brilliantly and we have amazing images to remember the day by. Images were edited and ready very quickly also. A throughly professional service

"special moments captured without us even knowing"
"Matt was great to work with, both leading up to the wedding and on the day itself, he was easy to get along with and welcomed our input. He put in a lot of work before the wedding day to ensure that we had some great ideas for the posed pictures, which turned out to be fantastic. We are extremely happy with the style of the photographs that we received, many special moments had been captured without us even knowing that Matt was there."
