About

Kirsty Mattsson is a documentary style Yorkshire wedding photographer working primarily throughout Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Cumbria, but also venturing further afield to cover weddings across the UK and abroad. If you are planning your big day, Kirsty would love to hear from you. No two weddings are the same. Every person, every couple and every event is unique and it is always her priority to capture the true character of your wedding day in her images.

    Amazing Photographer

    We chose Kirsty for our wedding based off her fantastic online portfolio and the recommendation from our wedding co-ordinator at Ripley Castle and she did not disappoint. Kirsty took fantastic photos that captured our day, taking a mix of candid and staged photos allowing our choices but also advising us as required to get the best possible shots. We absolutely love the photos and Kirsty herself was fun to work with and helped take any pressure out of the situation on what can be quite a stressful day! We received a USB of all of our photos in a personalised box and we had a 1 on 1 session with Kirsty where she helped us design our photo book which was incredibly helpful. We would highly recommend Kirsty for any future weddings/events.

    Stunning pictures

    We chose Kirsty as our wedding photographer because of her brilliant portfolio. She didn't disappoint - her pictures were stunning (and will be treasured by us for a lifetime). Our family and friends were really impressed, too. Kirsty was lovely to work with - and very professional. We had absolutely no issues communicating with her ahead of the day (and she even kindly moved our booking a couple of times due to Covid). We have since received a USB of our wedding pictures, which was presented in a personalised box (a lovely touch). If you're looking for a skilled photographer to capture your special day, we would definitely recommend Kirsty. Sophie and Joe

    Amazing photographer

    Kirsty is an amazing wedding photographer! She and her assistant captured our wedding day perfectly. We absolutely love the photographs. The candid shots really show the fun our guests had, and the personality of our day. Our couples shots are beautiful, and Kirsty was kind enough to stay later into the evening until it got dark enough to get some gorgeous shots utilising the outdoor lighting at the venue. Kirsty is professional and a pleasure to work with. She was flexible and understanding through the many times we had to rearrange the date, and always made sure to reply to our queries promptly. We would definitely recommend Kirsty to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

    Kirsty Mattsson Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Laura and Martin, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you and photograph your fabulous day! What a great crowd of family and friends and Swinton park is such a stunning venue. I enjoyed every minute of it, particularly that bumpy ride in the Land Rover with you to get those lake and forest pictures, that was great fun! All the best for your future together and I hope to see you again sometime xx
