Even after the countless times I’ve photographed weddings at Gosfield Hall, driving down the gravel path to the house still gives me goosebumps, parking up and knowing that whatever the weather, as a wedding photographer, I have so many options to deliver what I promise, perfect coverage of my couples special day, there are not many venues in essex that boast such a multitude and variety of outdoor and if the English weather doesn’t play ball, indoor opportunities for stunning portraiture.
Here is a montage to accompany the testimonials from two of my many happy couples, who’s weddings I have had the privilege of capturing at this iconic Essex wedding venue.
Gordon & Lucy
Choosing a photographer is such an important decision. Matt’s portfolio spoke for itself, his attention to detail and fantastic personality left us with no doubt that he would deliver on every level!
Matt, made us both feel extremely comfortable with his personable demeaner and obvious expertise. Matt managed to capture every magical moment of our special day without ever intruding or making us feel overwhelmed. It wasn’t just us who were impressed, so many of our guests took it upon themselves to comment on his approach and general friendliness, which was wonderful to hear.
Gordon: “Matt was fantastic with me and the guys. It was clear that he knew exactly what he was doing, and with his great chat and friendly nature, his presence added to the whole experience and sense of fun”
Lucy: “I’ve never been somebody who likes having their photograph taken and often feel uncomfortable. Matt immediately put me at ease and calmed my nerves, ensuring that from then on I barely even noticed the camera, and just got on with enjoying the day”
We weren’t looking for stiff, overly formal or old fashioned photos. We asked Matt to capture our guests as honestly as possible and to try and portray some of the emotion and joy that people were experiencing on the day. Matt engaged with our guests brilliantly, comfortably and naturally fitting into our day, we firmly believe that this care and effort can be seen in every single picture.
Matt knew exactly what would work well and gave us precisely the kind of direction we needed and had hoped for. It was clear that he knew the venue perfectly and understood how to highlight it’s beauty, while somehow still keeping the focus on us. Honestly, we truly couldn’t have been happier with the whole experience from start to finish.
The album Matt arranged and printed is absolutely stunning. It’s ultra high quality and perfectly composed. Each double page spread tells the story of our day better than we ever could have imagined.
We really enjoyed our wedding at Gosfield Hall and thanks to Matt we have the perfect images to remind us forever of our perfect day. We can not recommend Matt highly enough, if you are getting married you really couldn’t find a better photographer to capture your special day.
Shelley & Russell
From viewing Matt’s portfolio online we were keen to meet him for a chat, Matt kindly came to us and we instantly felt relaxed in his company, he talked us through our day and we booked him straight away.
Matt was so professional on our wedding day, he had a great way to communicate and gather people and captured literally hundreds of fun relaxed shots of our guests without them even realising they were being taken and our portraits were stunning, we didn’t ever feel awkward and Matt made everything so easy.
Many of our guests commented on how amazing Matt was, he really just blended in and had fun with everyone!
I was a little nervous about having a stranger there whilst I was getting ready but we got on so well. It felt like we had known Matt for years, we had lots of giggles throughout the day and my little daughters loved him!
Matt mostly worked in the background and was always courteous and full of smiles, we had so much fun and Matt supplied a gallery full of amazing memories, I couldn’t decide what images to put into our album as there were so many great ones, Matt listened, picked and arranged our album and I couldn’t be happier with it.
Matt was absolutely outstanding and we wouldn’t have changed anything about our whole experience working with him, we highly recommend Matt, definitely a five star photographer.
