Perfect photographer!

Matt is the most relaxed and laid-back photographer we've ever met, and that is so reflected in the stunning photos he captured from our perfect wedding day. We are so grateful to him for taking the time to meet with us via Zoom beforehand to get to know us and get a feel for the kind of vibe we wanted. He travelled to my Mum's for the morning to get some photos of us girls getting ready, and then met us at the venue to see the boys put the finishing touches on their suits, and stayed with us right up until after the first dance. Matt was so friendly and blended in with our day - it didn't even feel like he was working! We loved that he gave us the advice of just having a few 'posed' photos with family outside, so that we could enjoy the very most of our day. Matt has such a great eye for a natural photo and we have hundreds to look through in years to come. We are over the moon with our photos, and can't thank Matt enough for his beautiful work.

Perfect photographer


Originally, me and my now husband didn’t want a photographer. We was going to rely on family photos, as we’re both not one to pose in-front of a camera. After some gentle persuading from a family member we booked Matt and we are soo glad we did.

We scheduled in a zoom meeting to say hello and discuss what kind of pictures we wanted (mainly what pictures we didn’t want as I was so nervous lol). Matt was so reassuring. He promised he’d capture a relaxed day, pictures that told a story.

Our wedding day finally came round. I could hardly speak with nerves, the weather was rubbish, my 2 year old was over tired and grumpy but that didn’t matter. Matt was an absolute dream. He offered his help, he spoke to my children, he calmed me down talking about his wonderful family. It really helped take my mind off the ‘wedding nerves’. There was no pressure to pose or ‘force’ the children into group photos, yet amongst the chaos ,he somehow managed to capture some breathtaking memories. I was amazed.

After we was married, I think Matt sensed we was a little stressed (our daughter really wasn’t happy lol) he suggested we go for a quiet walk on our own, just for 5 minutes to soak everything in and that’s where the magic happened.
Some absolute stunning photos were taken, memories we’ll treasure forever. Me and my husband were only talking, so relaxed , laughing about what the hell had just happened. We forgot Matt was even there.

We received our pictures roughly 6 weeks later.
I can’t believe some of the pictures he captured.
My 82year old grandad , laughing with my best friends baby.
An intimate conversation with my uncle about my wedding ring (it was my nans who passed away).
Me and my dad holding hands, smiling at each other (my dad has been diagnosed with dementia, so you can imagine how special that photo now is).
These are just some special moments matt managed to capture and I didn’t even know.

My only regret is, I didn’t book Matt for longer.

Matt, thank you for being part of our wedding day and capturing pictures of the people me love the most.

Amazing wedding photographer

Matt, thank you so much for everything.

You felt like part of the family, and your calm and smiling presence was infectious.

The photos you captured are beyond amazing. Each one tells a story, and we're over the moon with how they turned out. They're going to be cherished for years to come.

Thanks again for everything, Matt. You're a star!

All our love

Absolutely exceptional!

Matt at Visions of View is the BEST photographer we could ever have asked for! We are so so so happy with the memories he captured of our wedding day, we could not recommend him more highly. It also helps that he is one the nicest people we’ve met - so friendly and approachable, and goes above and beyond to make you feel special. An absolute professional from start to finish - and we fell in love with our photos as soon as we saw them. A big thank you from both us!!!

The best photographer we could have asked for

Matt did such an amazing job with the photos of our wedding celebration in January. We had him there from 9am all the way through to 10pm and he was an absolute pleasure to have as part of our day. He's such a nice guy and really friendly, you never feel like he's in the way, as he just feels like one of the wedding party! He spotted all the special little moments we wanted caught on camera and gave us an amazing mix of staged and candid photos. I couldn't recommend him more highly for your wedding day. Thank you so much Matt!

1000% recommended

Would recommend Matthew Harrison 1000%. He was an absolute star throughout the whole of not only our wedding but the before and after too. He made the process so easy, we had a lovely sit down with him (our wedding was pre-pandemic in 2019) and a chat through his previous photos at our venue, through our expectations and what we loved about his style and he took the time to make sure he fulfilled every promise.
The photos we received were more than we ever expected and we absolutely love every single one. He captured some beautiful images, not only of my husband Alex and I, but of our guests, which we will treasure forever. We are both over the moon with the service we received and the photos are absolutely stunning. Thank you so much Matt, this is a long over due review but one I standby 1000% per cent. We could not recommend you more!

Beautiful photos and excellent service


I would not hesitate to recommend Visions of View. Our wedding was in lockdown and our booking was made at very short notice.

Matt was extremely accommodating and made the whole process so simple for us. I am camera shy and was apprehensive about having photographs taken. I need not have worried, Matt put us both at ease with his warm personality and clear instructions.

He is really great at his job, and knows how to set up the perfect image without any fuss. He works very hard and genuinely cares about the result.

Our photographs are beautiful. The traditional posed images and the more relaxed reportage style images seen together capture the emotions of our day so perfectly.

Thank you Visions of View for giving me some very precious memories.

Amazing images of a great day

We booked Matt to be the photographer at our wedding after viewing his work on Facebook.

The photos we ended up with were absolutely superb far exceeding all our expectations.

Matt was friendly, polite and professional throughout and couldn’t do enough for us. Nothing was too much trouble and thanks to his experience, he fitted perfectly into our day.

Thanks Matt for all your hard work and for capturing all those special moments from our wedding day.

Brilliant Service!

Visions of View - Matt, we really don’t know where to start! The day we met you for the first time Lee and I both knew almost straight away that we’d met our photographer, you are such a gentleman and so easy to get along with!
Your work speaks for itself, your portrait work is phenomenal but your candid shots are just as incredible! You made the day such fun and everyone said how lovely you were! You totally captured the essence of our day! Wish we could do it all again! Thank you for allowing us to relive the day forever! Shona and Lee Smith

Best choice EVER.

I can’t really remember finding Matt but I remember racing over to see him and booked him on the spot. His personality was a perfect match for us. We thought it was important to have suppliers that suited our personality. Matt was amazing at changing our date .. twice! Throughout the years we waited he became a trusted friend and I couldn't have asked for a better photographer in the end. We decided on a very small list of “posed” shots so we could enjoy the day. He captured every guest in a natural reportage style. He loves detail and even after having my photos a while I still see new things in them. I honestly couldn’t be happier. My husband isn’t one for a camera and and I can’t help but pull faces and mess about that made Matts work hard but he got everything about the day. They are all perfect. Matt blends in with guests and I barely noticed him there until someone said “where’s Matt” and his head would pop up. He’s not intrusive in anyway at all, not once did I feel I had a camera shoved in my face. He was so patient and always at hand if anyone needed some help. A true gent! This man is a miracle worker with the camera, our photos are amazing and everyone has loved them. If you have the chance to book please do, I honestly can’t recommend him highly enough. Even after all these years in his trade he’s still so passionate about it. Matt from the bottom of my heart thank you. You were the best person (other than my bridesmaids) to have by my side. You calmed me, made me laugh, gave me tissue for my tears … you are the best photomaid any bride could ask for. X

Captured our day perfectly

We met Matt on zoom after our original photographer cancelled with 3 months to go. It was a blessing in disguise... we instantly clicked with Matt although we didn't meet until our wedding day! He was professional, made everyone feel at ease, was so friendly and we wouldn't have wanted anyone else to photograph our day. Thank you so much Matt you captured our daily perfectly xx

Highly Recommended

Matt - was amazing! His ability to get so many great shots without us even noticing was great - sometimes we didn't even notice him there. He was great to work with and was very flexible considering our not so traditional theme and day! Thank you!
