Matt Ebbage

Destination Wedding Photographer | Kent, UK



Hey, I’m Matt, and it’s lovely to meet you. If you ask Google, I’m a Kent wedding photographer; if you ask my friends, I’m a loyal mate and an excellent addition to a weekend cycling trip; if you ask my wife, she’d say I’m the perfect partner for everything from binging TV series on the sofa to swanky spa weekends (seriously, why don’t we spend more time in cotton dressing gowns and slide on slippers? heaven!) And, if you ask my wonderful couples past and present, they’d say I’m an approachable, good-natured presence on their wedding day who captured their day impeccably and made the whole process effortless (…I hope!) It’s no exaggeration to say I totally adore what I do – as a documentary wedding photographer, I get to tell your story on your wedding day, and it’s an absolute privilege every time. My style is relaxed, unobtrusive and honest. This means my priority is always to give you as much time as possible to enjoy the company of the people who you’ve actually invited, rather than to steal you away for 3 hours to schlep to different corners of your venue. Ultimately, I want you to feel comfortable and completely yourself, so that when you revisit your photos in decades to come, you come back to that moment so sharply you can almost taste it. It should all feel so effortless that when you get your photos, you might think “Oh, wait – Matt had a camera with him…?” I get paid to capture people at the happiest, most incredible point in their life so far, and to help keep that experience alive for them for the rest of time. What could be better?! When I’m not working, you can usually find me hunting down delicious coffee and cake in and around Whitstable, or with a good Malbec in hand. If you’d like to meet up to chat weddings over either of those (or both! No judgment here…), feel free to get in touch – I’d love to chat.. You can also find my portfolio here, my pricing here (no hidden fees or sneaky surprises!) and, if you fancy, my blog here too. Let’s have some fun, shall we?

Bonsoir Matt, Erm….where do we start?! Firstly, we are in awe of your job; being a wedding photographer doesn’t last just the wedding day but when the party is over, the rest of your work continues and we hold so much admiration for what you do for not just us but all of your other couples. We literally do not have the words to describe how we feel about these photos; they are everything and more. I feel like I am in a fairytale looking through your photos; they are magical, captivating and all round perfect. They are everything we could ever dream of to remember our day and the most precious souvenirs of the best day of our lives. You have captured moments we didn’t even remember in the thrill of the day and these have created even more valuable and precious memories with our family, friends and, of course, you. Through looking through our photos you aren’t only our wedding photographer but you were there with us to lend a helping hand, a guest, a friend (and a bouncer) and for that we feel so lucky. The raw emotion, love, smiles, laughter and fun that you have captured are next to none. The colours of the photos, the variety with black and white, the framing, just everything is magical. And don’t get us started on the highlights slideshow that you created... We cannot wait to share these with our family and friends; I think my new favourite question is going to be: “Would you like to see our wedding photos?!” We cannot wait to download, favourite, print, share and talk about these photos forever with these memories which you have created for us eternally. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And because three thank yous aren't enough in one language, here’s some more: Merci beaucoup, merci beaucoup, merci beaucoup. We are forever grateful for you; you are incredible. All our love and bisous, Caroline & Mathieu xx

What can we say! From start to finish, you gave us the most amazing service!! We were both so nervous and you completely put us at ease. It was amazing to have you as part of our day and it shows in the photos how much fun everyone had having their photos taken by you. You went above and beyond providing us the most amazing photos, far better than we ever imagined and now we can't stop looking at them! I want to do it all again. We are so unbelievably thankful and can't recommend you highly enough! You truly captured every single moment of our day! Can we do it again? Pretty please? x
