Here's a little bit about what the people say!

If you would like to speak to any of these people before asking me to photograph your event, please just ask and I will put you in touch with them!

Not sure what to say other than ‘WOW!’ These photos are absolutely fantastic! Exactly what we had hoped for and more. You’ve done a superb job at capturing the day in such a natural way. We have spent hours looking at these already! We are so pleased that we chose you. We knew as soon as you visited the house for the initial meeting that you were going to be a pleasure to work with and capture our day how we had hoped. A number of people have commented on how great they thought you were throughout the day and it really was a pleasure to have you share our day with us.

Lauren & Steven

"You are seriously talented Matthew Harmer. You have this natural ability to get on with it and capture the best moments without being intrusive or in the way. The photos speak for themselves: a wonderful balance of natural, structured and organised. Your energy was inspiring as you were there from the start until the very end capturing the infamous Piggyback! Family and friends will have their joyous memories of the day but your pictures will enable us all to re-live this most memorable occasion as frequently as we wish. Equally we can share the special moments with those who sadly couldn't be there on the day. I want to thank you personally for doing such an incredible job and making my sis and BIL so happy with the perfect selection of pictures. Well done! Couldn't recommend you more highly enough."


We’re so pleased we found and booked Matthew to do our wedding photography. He was professional, creative and clearly highly skilled. Matthew captured the day wonderfully and we know we have photos to treasure forever.

Anna & Phil

We had Matthew as our wedding photographer. He could not have made the whole experience more relaxed! He is extremely professional but also maintains a very intimate and bespoke service. Matthew said at the begining we probably won't know that he's there, and sure enough with his wealth of experience, and guidence we we're presented with hundreds of fantastic photo's that for most of them, we hadn't even noticed him taking. Matthew is a true example of somebody that goes the extra mile and loves what he does which shows in the amazing photographs that captured our perfect day! We could not reccommend him highly enough. A real expert!

Claire & Steve

Matthew was absolutely brilliant cannot recommend him highly enough. Very friendly and professional and made us feel completely at ease on our wedding day. The photos and memories we have from the day are amazing!

Billy & Chelsey

"Maf captured our amazing wedding day with an incredible professional job. He produced some amazing photos (both formal and informal). He went that extra mile and his prep and after service advice I would recommend to all. Damn nice chap too. If any of you who are reading this are thinking of using Burst Photos well hire him now."


"Well Baz spoke for us both but I can't say it enough how fortunate we were. We couldn't have picked anyone more perfect for our wedding and so pleased we made the decision. The above says it all, you did an amazing job, so amazing that we will struggle to choose for our album!  Thank you. The feedback we got from family and friends was what a top guy you were and how at ease you made everyone feel which makes you the best photographer . We are just over moon with the photos Thank you again, They will be treasured."
