M&G Photographic: wedding photography and video, telling the story of your day naturally

Our ethos

We are documentary wedding photographers with years of experience and a real passion for what we do. We let moments happen rather trying to create them; capturing humour, romance and real emotion.

Available wherever you are

Although we’re best friends and business partners, we work at opposite ends of the country in East Yorkshire and Hertfordshire. Having a northern and southern base means that we can both easily cover weddings across the whole of the UK. Visiting new places and new wedding venues is always inspiring, so please do get in touch no matter where you are.

We love what we do

When we say we have a passion for what we do, we really mean it. This isn’t a hobby to us, or a career move to make money. This is us doing what we’ve always wanted to do. We’ve been to hundreds of weddings and every single one has been unique. We’re personally invested in every wedding we attend and feel the utmost privilege that couples allow us to be part of one of the biggest days of their lives. Your wedding is about you and your guests – not the photographer. At times you’ll forget we’re there, but we’ll be working in the background to unobtrusively capture all the key moments and little details of your day.

Our background

We’ve known each other for well over 15 years and first met at university studying Fine Art and photography. We both photographed our first weddings in 2007 and started our full time wedding photography business, M&G Photographic, in 2013. We both feel so lucky to be fulfilling our ambitions as photographers and truly love every aspect of wedding photography. We hope this comes across through this website: from our rambling text to our images, to our testimonials from previous clients. A background in Fine Arts helps us to be creative in our approach, resulting in photographs that are truly natural, genuine and absolutely unique to your special day.

About Patrick

I live in East Yorkshire with my partner, my little boy and my two cats. My passion is photography and though I work on a diverse range of different photography and video projects, my real love is photographing weddings. No other aspect of my work gives me the freedom and creativity that photographing a wedding does. I also love photographing just for fun – and like to use my film cameras like my Nikon F100 (which was used to take the photo below – thanks to my partner and occasional assistant Hollie!) whenever I can. I really do love my job and I love making a living doing what I’ve always wanted to do – visiting beautiful locations all over the UK, meeting amazing people and photographing it all. No two weddings are ever the same.

About Matt

I live in Hertfordshire with my family. Two children keep me busy! I travel all around the country UK photographing weddings, spending as much time up north as I do down south over the summer months. I’d love to hear all about your big day, so please get in touch if you like our work and think our natural style of photography would suit what you’re looking for in a wedding photographer. Just like Patrick, I started out photographing at an early age and becoming a professional photographer fulfilled a lifetime’s ambition.
