Last update: June 2023

Hey - I'm Matt, I’m a dad of a crazy set of little girls (5 and 2 yrs old) but most importantly I'm a wedding photographer based in Kent - who loves travelling all over the UK taking photos of each and every unique wedding.

I don’t go big on posing – (it’s awkward – I get that), I don’t take you away from your wedding for hours - I just take super relaxed, candid documentary photos - i guarantee that 95% of any gallery I deliver will be documentary photos.

I'm renowned at putting people at ease, I’m super organised but most importantly I capture beautiful, romantic fun and epic images in a relaxed way.

Please take time to look around, look at my prices and photos. If you have any questions at all, just reach out and we’ll get right back to you.

I'd love the chance to capture your special day so get in contact, I love a chat!

"Stop searching!! Everything you could dream of finding in a photographer and more Matt brings through in every shot, while making it feel like he's an extension of the family!" Jill & Paul

The best decision we made for our wedding

Matt isn’t just a photographer and artist, he is an experience curator, and such a lovely, kind person.

The photos themselves were gobsmackingly beautiful and we couldn’t be happier with them, honestly above and beyond expectations for our wedding photos. Tears of joy for at least 3 hours when we received them!

But that’s not all, the whole experience we had with Matt was truly fantastic. From the moment we met him via video call, we knew his lovely calm temperament and gorgeous style of shooting was perfect for us. Then in the run-up to the wedding he was unbelievably helpful in the planning and organising of the day via emails with fun questionnaires, short forms and Pinterest boards. He made the potentially painful process of planning the day a delight - he deserves an award for that alone!

On the day, Matt was unreal. So professional and SO lovely to us and all our guests - we received so many compliments about him. He got absolutely all the shots we were after and more, we couldn’t believe it as he blended in so beautifully with our day it didn’t feel like he was snapping away! He also took great care in making sure everyone felt comfortable and was so sweet and kind with children, too.

I can’t say enough good things about Matt and his service. He worked so hard on putting our slideshow and gallery together and made it such a wonderful experience. We love him and so do our friends and family! Thank you, Matt :)

The best decision you could make

Where do we start.....if you are looking for a photographer who will capture your day in the most beautiful way then you do not need to look any further. Having Matt as our photographer was one of the best decisions we could have made. From the time of booking Matt was helpful, knowledgeable and professional. He got to know us as a couple over the months and listened to our views and offered advice.
On the day Matt was so friendly, really blended in to our day and was in no way obtrusive. So many of our guests commented on the great shots they witnessed him capture. We didn't feel that we lost time with our wedding guests as our couples photos were taken at convenient moments to let us enjoy time with our guests. Having a January wedding - the weather isn't guaranteed but the sun was out for us and Matt captured the light in all it's glory.
Matt promised us a few sneak peaks that would arrive in the following days and less than 24 hours later we had a handful of the most beautiful photos.
Within a couple of weeks Matt had edited and put together the most amazing slideshow of our best photos and gave us access to our online gallery. 950 stunning photos that told the story of our day. We've shared our photos with family and friends and the response has been the same from everyone - WOW! Stunning photos -what an amazing photographer.
We have fabulous photos that we can treasure forever - thank you Matt, we will certainly be recommending you at every opportunity.
Best wishes

Best Wedding Photographer

Matt is incredibly professional, friendly and amazing at what he does. My wife and I were blown away with the quality of our photos. He made us both feel completely at ease from the minute he arrived and he has encapsulated our day perfectly. Everything is perfect and you can tell he really has taken the time to get to know us, the kind of photos we wanted and we truly couldn't be happier. Thank you so much Matt! Seriously, our day couldn't have been any better and we want to thank you for being there to capture it all! The photos look so natural and the reaction photos of our guests are incredible. We honestly couldn't recommend Matt enough! One of the best decisions we made about our wedding!

Amazing! Nicest man felt like part of the family

Matt, well where do we even start! You are incredible. Not just a photographer but dress fluffer, friend, comedian and generally nice guy that takes absolute pride in his work.

You amazed me and my husband from the get go. You made us feel comfortable the whole day through and didn’t stop making us laughed.

You found out my secret and kept saying “kristy breathe out” haha! Inside joke 😜

You went over and beyond your job and even all our guests said how amazing and friendly you were.

We’ve only seen our sneak peaks as we’ve only ever been married 5 days now but wow wow wow I’m inlove with them all already and cannot wait to see the rest! You even got the sneak peaks to us the next day which was so quick too.

Thank you for travelling to Southampton to photograph our wedding we cannot thank you enough.

I will definitely be using you again for when we start our own family and any lifetime memories we want captured.

Sending so much love your way you legend!

Thank you thank you thank you!

Matt is a class act.

We can’t thank Matt enough, so here’s hoping this review convinces every couple looking for a wedding photographer to look no further!

After searching through multiple websites, we found Matt’s details and instantly fell in love with his timeless style, natural shots and beautiful colours. We immediately enquired and were thrilled he was available!

Matt managed to capture the most incredible moments, as well as those peaceful intimate times and now we have photos to treasure forever.

However, Matt consistently went above and beyond our expectations in his dedication to providing us the most, smoothest and enjoyable day possible. His assistance with parts of the day was instrumental to that, and we are so incredibly grateful.

We honestly felt in such professional and capable hands. From the moment Matt arrived he lead and guided our day, directing us for the best shots, keeping us on schedule and providing a friendly & reassuring voice on our shoulder on such a busy and hectic day.
Not only is Matt an amazing artist, but genuinely an incredibly nice person with a bubbly personality and positive charming attitude.

The whole experience working with Matt was a pleasure, we've recently been provided with a link to our gallery and the whole setup is intuitive and easy to use, allowing us to send links to guest and friends to view and order photos alike.

So, if you are overwhelmed with choice as we were, we hope this helps place trust in Matt! He is a class act who will make your wedding day run 100x smoother!

Simply breathtaking and a delight to work with!

Matt was so easy to work with, when I finally met him on the actual wedding day it was like he was an old friend! He had this magical gift of being everywhere, taking the most amazing images whilst not getting in anyone’s way. It was like having a family friend with us. Matt is the most amazing photographer and the pictures of our boys and us on our wedding day are just stunning. I couldn’t have wanted anything more from our wedding pictures and just want to say a huge thank you Matt for being part of a very special day and capturing every magical moment! Don’t look any further…. book Matt today!

Look no further Matt is your perfect wedding photographer!

On the lead up he made us feel completely comfortable that our pictures would be amazing and reflect the what we after from the photos. Matt is super responsive with questions - not that we ever had many as he always had it covered through conversations, emails & questionnaires about are big day.

Taking our couple photos it felt he made us feel completely comfortable, got us laughing and the results are stunning! (As the bride I was worried I wouldn't like the photos of myself I never do - but I couldn't be happier with the results!) We really couldn't believe how fantastic they were and the way Matt set's up your first viewing is perfect.

He was also just super helpful on the day going above and beyond. He was honestly the best decision we made for our wedding (apart from saying 'I Do' of course).

Stop looking, book matt now!

Wow - we cannot express how thrilled we are with our wedding photos. I was really nervous about having my photo taken but they came out absolutely amazing! Matt really captured the joy of the day!

Also, he was just so much fun to have around which made having our photos taken that much easier! Everyone kept coming up to us and saying how great he was. He was non-stop all day capturing beautiful pictures of us and of our guests and helping me get untangled from the endless brambles!

My sister already wants to book him for her wedding and she’s not engaged yet!

STOP LOOKING AND BOOK MATT NOW! You will not be disappointed!

Best photographer!

Matt was fantastic! Not just his end product, which we were blown away by, but by everything he did on our big day. Matt is not just an amazing photographer, but also a wedding expert. At every stage of the day he assisted us and gave little tips on how we can do things or what to expect next. From folding pocket squares to when to take the bouquets and button holes out of water and helping pin them on. Obviously from his experience of attending so many weddings!
Matt floated around the wedding party getting exceptional shots without us really noticing he was there. And when it was time for our couple photos he managed to whisk us off, take amazing pictures and have us back to the party before anyone really noticed we had gone.
We cannot thank Matt enough for his amazing work and all the extras he gave us, which really helped us to relax and enjoy our day properly.
We would certainly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a photographer, for a wedding or otherwise.

Matt Trott Wedding Photographer review

I've finally got around to writing a review for Matt, who was our photographer for our wedding this summer.

From the point of initial consultation to receiving our beautiful album we absolutely could not fault Matt's professionalism throughout the whole process. We couldn't believe the amount of time and effort he put into every aspect and really appreciated his organisational skills and great contact. We wanted lots of natural photos and to appreciate the scenery - we got everything we wished for and more. On the day he made everyone feel at ease and managed be capture every angle during the ceremony but somehow we didn't notice his presence either!

A photograph is a memory that lasts forever and we are truly grateful for Matt ensuring we can look back through a timeline of our wedding day forever.

Fantastic Photographer!

Matt Photographed our wedding in July 2022 and I can honestly say it was an absolute joy to have him capture our special day. Matt is very organised, his communication is great and he's just a really nice guy who is really easy to work with.

We chose Matt after seeing his work in instagram and on his website. From the very first meeting we had with him we knew we made the right choice. Would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a photographer!

Best money we have ever spent. Matt is the most talented photographer ever.

Matt was recommended to us by another photographer who was booked up already. The other photographer said he knew how talented Matt was and he wasn't wrong! Matt is amazingly talented. He has such an eye for detail - knowing how to get the best photos. Even though our venue had limited outside space, Matt had such an eye for what would make a good shot and our photos look like they were taken in a very posh venue with huge gardens!
Matt was super organised, keeping in contact through every step of our wedding journey and was incredibly prepared: you can really tell how much time Matt devotes to his work and the passion he has for his job. He was always interested in finding out about us as a couple and listening to our ideas and requests, ensuring his photographs would meet all our wishes.
Matt is one of the nicest people we have met. We were very nervous about having our photos taken but he really put us at ease. He was so relaxed and helpful it was nearly like having another best man! He helped out with the kids, reminded us to take our rings and due to the fact we felt relaxed, we got the best photos.
We love the fact that Matt does natural documentary photos and are absolutely thrilled with our wedding photos. Out of the hundreds of photos we have received, I don't think there is one we don't like which says a lot as my husband and I are always so self-critical and self-conscious.
Matt seems to have eyes at the back of his head as he did not miss a moment and we really don't know how he managed to capture every little thing and funny moment that happened. The photos are stunning, artistic and the best money we have ever spent. It means so much to have these special memories of the happiest day of our lives. Having both lost our mothers in their prime, it was even more important and special to capture these happy memories and happy moments with and friends and families. I know we will look back at these photos and love these photos for the rest of our lives.

Thank you Matt for making me feel like a princess for a day and thank you for capturing our special day and taking the most beautiful, artistic and funny photos. We could not have asked for anything better. You are amazingly talented and a great guy.

Matt is the best!!

We can’t express how amazing Matt was, not only just on our wedding day but the lead up to it and afterwards. As soon as Matt arrived at the hotel to photograph my preparations I felt completely at ease with him, he was friendly and professional, we immediately warmed towards him.
Throughout the ceremony he took photos capturing every moment and then continued all through our reception, not once did we or any of our guests feel awkward at having our photos taken.
We would not hesitate in any way to recommend Matt to our friend’s and family, we’ve just received the photos and Matt captured everything we could’ve wished for.
Thank you so much!

Absolutely blown away!

We don’t even know how to express in words how amazing Matt was - from the minute we first met with him he was friendly and filled us with confidence that he would be able to capture our day. When the wedding day finally came round Matt completely outdid himself. He just an absolutely joy to work with. We have had so many of our wedding guests praise him and we can completely see why! We could not have dreamt up more beautiful photos if we tried. Of all the vendors we worked with, Matt was our favourite by far and I would recommend him 100000 times over.

Amazing photographer everytime

Matt is an amazing photographer having done our engagement shoot and our wedding. We even asked him to do a family shoot for us. He never disappoints, is flexible and made us feel at ease. He is a genuinely nice person and a pleasure to work with. Wort every penny. The photos are all amazing the only difficulty is choosing between them! Would highly recommend.
