Hi, I’m Matt Bowen and I love Somerset Wedding Photography.
That’s me up there with my wife Alice and my son Franklin, although I am now without the beard.
I love taking photographs of people who are in love, of people who want to share an amazing day with their friends and family, and of people who know how to party.
I want to help make you look the best you have ever looked.
I like old films and Italian culture and being outside and telling people’s stories.
I used to work on the radio reading the news out loud so I know a thing or two about telling a good story.
I’ve been photographing weddings for 6 years now and I’ve loved every one.
It’s the people at a wedding that interest me the most. They can tell you so much about the day and their faces portray so many emotions. I love taking photographs of people.
I adore the English countryside and the changing of the seasons. Wedding speeches always get me. Being around friends is the best feeling ever.
I ride bikes with Alice and do some CrossFit. I sing a lot even though I can’t. I love podcasts like Serial, Criminal, Adam Buxton, No Such Thing As A Fish and my own podcast PhotoTypes.
I consider it a massive privilege when couples who I have never met, or maybe met just once, trust me to take their wedding photographs.
I’m 6’4” but at your wedding you’ll hardly notice I’m there for most of the day as I’ll be taking pictures of things as they happen. We will spend some time together though taking photos of you which you’ll cherish forever.
There’ll be no loud hailers and herding of guests and no long waits while the group shots are being done. I aim to make the whole day very relaxed for you.
I got married myself in June 2015 so have very recent experience of what you are going through right now.
If you want to know more then please get in touch and we can start discussing your wedding photography.
