SOME IMPORTANT THINGS…
Hi! Thanks for getting in touch. I’ve photographed dozens of weddings over the past five years and I’ve loved every single one of them. I have a very important job and it’s one I take very seriously: storytelling my couples’ wedding days through my images. Here you can find some additional information about my approach to photographing weddings, the booking process and my pricing details as well as some sample images and kind words from happy couples.
Also have a good browse through my website mattsim.co.uk for more portfolios, sample weddings on the blog and all the information you could need for your big day. I really hope you like what I do and I look forward to hearing all about the plans for your wedding.

Every wedding is unique
Finding the quirky and unconventional aspects that make your day unique is an important factor.
If you want to walk down the aisle in a pair of Doc Martens - I say go for it!
If a friends baby decides to wail uncontrollably during the ceremony - I think it’s hilarious and makes for a cracking photo!
If it rains all day long - I’m happy getting soaked through if you are!
Your wedding is not a rehearsal - your chosen photographer only gets one chance to capture every moment and you need to feel comfortable to put your trust in him to do just that. Fortunately, I’ve done this before! I’m very well versed indeed when it comes to finding those great moments for an awesome shot. The unexpected moments are the ones you remember for years to come and I absolutely love documenting them. I have the eye and experience to capture the array of wonderful moments throughout your entire wedding day. You’ll have worked so hard in organising your day and planning every little detail that you just can’t afford to gamble with something as important as your wedding photographs.
Your wedding day is all about YOU, you get to call the shots
I’m happy taking as much or as little direction as you want to give. I know what makes for a fabulous wedding photograph as it unfolds but if there’s anything in particular you want covered all you have to do is let me know.
Those unique moments (as life-changingly huge or incidentally tiny as they might seem) are what sets your wedding photographs apart from everyone else’s.
And guess what? I just love documenting them, you lucky people!
I love using your choice of venue as an influence on the photos I take. It plays such a huge part in dictating the character and overall atmosphere of your day that it seems silly not to weave elements of your surroundings into the final images.
I offer a simple ‘one price fits all’ package. Minimum fuss. What‘s included? These:
a pre-wedding meeting (or several) either in person or via Skype to answer questions, finalise details / timings and offer consultation
a full day’s photographic coverage on your wedding day by me, of course with no clock-watching
400 + beautifully edited and colour balanced high resolution images with full rights to print and share presented via digital delivery
a private online gallery for you to view all your images and share with friends and family
travel costs throughout the UK (bookings abroad incur a little extra cost for obvious reasons)
an informal engagement shoot at a destination of your choice £200
a second photographer - this is particularly useful if you’d like the groom’s preparations covered also £200
an amazing handmade photo album from QTAlbums designed by me £500
Bespoke quotes are also available if you’re planning something a little different.
I cap the number of weddings I take on each year meaning I can offer you the best possible quality of service from first contact through to delivering your final images.
I also tend to get booked up quite far in advance so don’t hesitate and get in touch now.

So what now?
Give me a call/email/text - if you decide I’m the wedding photographer for you I’ll take a £500 deposit which secures your date and the remaining balance is due just before the big day. I accept cash, cheques, bank transfer and PayPal. I’ll send a contract over for you to sign and the deal is done!
If you have any questions, queries or concerns at all or if you just fancy a chat pick up the phone. I know weddings take a LOT of organising and that also means stressing so if I can help in any way possible I will.
