Testimonials

We want to say a massive THANK YOU to Matt and his assistant colleague Leo for amazing photos from our special day. He really captured the essence and feel of our wedding in his photos and his attention to detail was impeccable, it really was faultless.

The one thing we was worried about while planning our wedding was finding a photographer that we felt comfortable with. His calming and funny personality he has made us feel really relaxed and at ease , he made us feel really special.

All our guests loved Matt and Leo (a couple of bridesmaids in particular) and commented how effortless they were at taking the photos, and how hard they worked during the day and evening to make everyone feel at ease, almost as though they wasn't there. Matt planned the day really well and worked around us and the difficult warm sunny conditions.

Matt was a great help after the wedding as well. He helped organise our photos, picked out the best ones to create a story of our day and arranged them on our wedding album. We would have struggled to pick photos for our album ourselves because they were all so good.


We couldn't believe the quality of the photos. Friends have said i (the groom) look like a model in some photos and Matt made the bride look even more stunning with her natural vintage look, very beautiful.

We met Matt during a wedding fair at The Civic Hall in Trowbridge after spotting a photo of one of our friends he had displayed. We loved the sharp, clear, natural spontaneousness of his photos. We just loved the very extra special photos he had displayed which we haven't seen from other photographers. He was just what we were after. He has a unique and refressing view to taking wedding  photographs, he really is a step above the rest, very talented. Please see his gallery on his website, you see exactly what we mean. They are not just the standard posed photos most photographers do.

We don't think of Matt as our photographer but more as a friend. A pleasure to know.

Thank you very much Matt.
Chris & Lisa 

 

From the start Matt has been everything we could’ve wanted from a photographer. When I (the bride) met him at a South West Wedding Show I knew almost instantly that he was what we were looking for; friendly, personable and fantastic at what he does. From then on, Matt went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. He is fantastic at communicating, always responding to emails quickly and keeping us updated on everything. If there was one thing we didn’t stress about, it was the photography!! On the day, Matt was great and so many of our guests commented on how approachable and professional he was. He managed to capture our day so perfectly, all the little details and important moments. We are so pleased with the result, our photos are so unique and special, we cannot thank Matt enough for all his hard work!

We have been blown away by your services and really can’t thank you enough!!

Best Wishes,

Cerys & Jonathan

We first met Matt at the Fieldgood WedFest wedding fair in Bath. We then loved his portfolio's and his passion for photography all the photos really stood out, but at the time we were struggling to find our perfect venue to have our reception. We then met Matt again at the Moonraker wedding fair in Trowbridge and it was so lovely that he recognised us from the previous wedding fair (which was getting embarrassing as we had been to so many) and asked if we found our wedding venue yet, which we hadn't as we wanted something unique. He then showed us some photos from his portfolio's and this particular venue caught our eye as the photos were just outstanding. He explained it was his friend's at Dilton Vale Farm who hold weddings on their Farm and WOW it was just what we had been looking for, so we are so grateful to Matt for helping us find our wedding venue, we would not of had our perfect wedding day with out him.

 

From first meeting Matt he was so professional, warm and very friendly. From the moment we asked him to do the photography at our wedding he has been amazing, taking time out to come and speak to us about what we wanted from our photos on our day.

 

On the morning of our wedding and throughout the day Matt made everyone feel at ease, we didn't even know he was there at times he just blended into the background.

 

We have just viewed our photos and WOW!! we absolutely love them. The slideshow tells the story of our day, Matt, you have captured so many beautiful moments and it's so lovely and special to see parts of our day we never saw. It is exactly what we wanted from our photos especially all the natural shoots, your attention to detail shows throughout.

These beautiful photos you have captured will now be treasured for the rest of our lives.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Gemma and James

Myself and my beautiful wife would like to thank Matt for the professional photography service he provided us on our wedding day. We are both absolutely delighted with the outcome of the shots that he has provided us and we both feel very lucky to have found such an amazing photographer that really connected on the big day capturing some fantastic memories in great detail. We would recommend anyone looking for a professional photography service to get in touch with creating diamonds limited (Matt Law), I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Donna And Ryan

My Wife & I got engaged in 2017 & we had both agreed on a long engagement so as we can prepare & plan our big day together.With SO much to consider, planning was very stressful but also very exciting!

 

The 1st thing we wanted was to book our photographer so we attended the 1st of many wedding fayres to come! We met with many different photographers, many offering the 'standard' posed photos but we both agreed we wanted something different, something that would truly capture those special moments throughout the day.

 

Then we met Matt - His photos REALLY stood out & was exactly what we were looking for! We explained that deciding on which photographer to book was an extremely difficult choice as there were many on offer but also we wanted to capture 'the moments'. Matt then explained that his work thrives on exactly that & his portfolio speaks volumes!

 

We booked Matt after meeting him for a 2nd time at another wedding fayre & we then both decided that he was the perfect choice. From initial booking up to the big day, Matt was with us all the way keeping in regular email contact & even meeting twice to help us plan the order of the day.

 

On the day itself, Matt was assisted by Leo who Matt works with quite often so as shots can be captured from different angles. I was a VERY nervous Groom on the day but both Matt & Leo immediately made me feel at ease & they wasn't in any way intrusive. 

If you are considering who to book as your photographer, I would highly recommend Matt. Not only for his professionalism but also for his passion that he puts into his work & you will be more then pleased with the captured memories that will last a lifetime. Our only regret is that we can't do it all over again!

Anna And Craig

Wow what a Photograher!!!

Matt at creating diamonds was the best! He is so fun & you don’t even notice he is there! the photos are incredible. We really didn’t want traditional pictures, we wanted the day to be captured exactly as it was. Matt went above and beyond and came up with so many great ideas. Matt captured our day so perfectly, I couldn’t imagine having another photographer there. 

Thank you Matt, you made our incredible day.

Charis & Mitch ❤️

 

We honestly couldn’t of asked for a better wedding photographer ! Even now when we look back at our pictures, we can’t believe how much of an amazing  job Matt did. He managed to capture all those precious moments without you even noticing. He’s presence was almost unnoticeable and not over powering at all. He was incredibly flexible and would work out the day with you without it taking too much time of out of your special day, though still capturing all the photos you could wish for. Having had fireworks during the evening at our wedding; unlike most photographers that would leave after the first dance, Matt went that extra mile and stayed until 11pm at night and took photos of the incredible firework display we had - Some of which are our favourite photos !! He was also in tune with us as a couple and our personalities !! Capturing the moments that make us ‘us’ and not making us feel uncomfortable with awkward romantic poses, but allowing us to have fun in the pictures !! Thank you so much Matt for everything you did for us. The beautiful photos you captured will be treasured by us both, reminding us of the best day of lives!!  

Anna And Steve

Wow!! Matt and his wife photographed our wedding, and the photos are incredible! I have genuinely never seen anything like it! They are kind, talented and so much fun to work with! Matt suggested using smoke grenades and the affect it had was amazing, the pictures are out of this world! Matt and Kelin, made us feel so at ease, cracking jokes, and just making us feel so calm. They captured every single moment of our special day, without being in the way or over powering!! Thank you, we have the most beautiful pictures to look back on and remember our special day!!

Mel And Michael 

I cannot rave about Matt and his photography enough. He made our wedding absolutely perfect and captured it beautifully. 

Matt put so much detail into making our pictures perfect and made us feel at ease throughout the whole day!

Matt knew the exact style we were looking for in our pictures and kept things simple and effortless. 

He had a great way with our guests and became such a part of the crowd we didn’t even know he was there taking pictures!

Even after the wedding, Matt was keen to keep in touch and answer any questions we had. The attention to detail has been amazing. 

By far the best thing we spent our money on was creating diamonds!  

Thank you so so much Matt!

Love Jack and Jenna

 

Creating Diamonds (Matt) was exactly what we wanted for our wedding. He was relaxed and didn’t push for posed photos. We knew we didn’t want all of the typical photos where you stand around for hours and Matt understood that. Instead he captured the most cherished moments of the day in a beautiful and artistic way. 
If you’re looking for a photographer who meets all of your requests and fits in the day like a guest, Creating Diamonds is your photographer! 
 

Laura And Jonathan

Sharon and myself were massively impressed with the quality of Matts photography but what really made us choose him for our wedding was actually the type of person he is. Such a friendly genuine guy with a huge passion and love for his photography. He immediately put us at ease with his knowledge of his craft and guided us through the process leaving us to make our choices but adding  his own suggestions to make it a truly spectacular day. 

With the help of his partner in crime Kelin they literally had all the angles covered. 

We can’t thank Matt enough for an amazing day and would hugely recommend his services. 

Sharon And James

Matt photographed our wedding day and the photos are just PERFECT! Matt took so much time, getting to know us, visiting our church and venue, finding out what we like, what we don’t like, about our families and friends, about our personalities, and much more. And on the day his efforts showed! He was such a naturally professional photographer, putting everyone at ease and making them feel comfortable whilst capturing the most wonderful natural shots at exactly the right time. I would highly recommend Matt.

 

Jasmine And Mitch

Where do I start?! From the moment we met Matt, we were blown away with his passion for photography, his incredible professionalism and his ability to guide us through the process of wedding photography. In the lead up to the wedding, Matt was always a phone call or an email away and was always on hand to answer any questions or queries we had. On the Wedding day its self, Matt was absolutely incredible. His calm approach automatically put us at ease and his ability to blend into the background and capture incredible shots was breathtaking. We were delighted with the photos and could not recommend Matt more highly. Thank you so much for making our day so special and capturing all our amazing memories.

Polly And Richy

From the moment we met Matt from Creating Diamonds Wedding Photography we knew we had found the photographer that we were looking for. He was professional throughout and had a very calm manner, he allowed us to enjoy our day and obviously above all he has provided us with some lovely photographs so we can look back on our special day. I don't think we could have chosen better, thank you Matt.

Angela And Dave

After booking Matt at a wedding fair I went home and looked him up on Instagram and Facebook! I knew I’d made the right choice and already couldn’t wait to see the photos he had yet to take of our wedding! He is a genuinely lovely guy and easy going too which were very grateful for because the run up to our wedding was somewhat chaotic!
We have just received our photos and we are not disappointed! They are amazing! The attention to detail is awesome! And there are photos that we had no idea were being taken! He’s like a photographer ninja! 
He was great on the day too, helping to move furniture and all sorts! 
We really can’t praise him enough! 
Thanks so much again Matt, you have given us some beautiful memories of one of the best days of our lives.
 

Lisa and Mick

If you are looking for the best photographer ever then look no further! I knew finding a photographer was going to be a hard job what with my now husband Jas being completely against having his photo taken at all! But when meeting Matt at a wedding fair I knew he was 'the one.'  Working in the wedding industry myself I know there is so much out there but Matt most definitely stands out from the rest. After persuading Jas to meet up with Matt he was completely sold and from then on Matt couldn't have done more for us! Matt was amazing! Our wedding had no structure from the word go but yet Matt didn't miss a moment and has captured the day perfectly! Matt is the coolest guy you could wish to meet and has given us memories that we will cherish forever and for that we are forever grateful!  Matt I really do thank my lucky stars that our paths crossed. Thank you so so much! We love you!!!!

 

 Claire and Jas Bird

We met Matt at a wedding fair and were immediately impressed by his work.

After seeing other photographer's work around the wedding fair we decided to go with Matt, a decision we are glad we made.

 

From the start we new we had gone with the right choice, he came and had a look at places we had in mind for some pictures to be taken before our wedding day. The passion Matt had in what he saw and was planning was truly amazing and the pictures he took were stunning.

 

All I can say is a big thank you to Matt. You will not be disappointed in Matt and his work.

 

Darren & Tracey Smith

Matt you are a total legend - not only an amazing photographer but one of the nicest guys I've ever met. The photos of my wedding are stunning and everyone has asked for your info, which I am proud to share! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts xx

 

Emma Crawford

 

 

What can I say - absolutely outstanding, they are truly remarkable pictures and tell a great story of the day. Your creativity is a strength and  it comes across very strongly in your production. Its a great memory of what was a day to remember for all. I know I can say for both sets of parents this is a fantastic way to remember the event and will be played and played and played!!

 

You are clearly a true professional in your field and added to that have the personality to get on with everyone and put them all at ease. The editing and production is creative, slick and  dynamic. Without doubt its the best set of shots I have seen put together in a movie for a wedding, you have truly been a star performer for us and I would happily recommend you to anyone who wants to use a professional photographer. 

 

You are a credit to your profession.

 

Steven Radford

 

 

You know you've found perfection when the slide show produced after a wedding is played a dozen times within the first hour and still packs the same emotional punch!  Thank you for truly creating some diamonds for Lucy and Steve and families: images so varied and creative that we will never tire of looking at them.

 

Your quiet professionalism, warmth and tireless work really enhanced the day. You truly are a "People Person" and your passion for photography and skill in conveying the atmosphere of a wedding day do you credit. 

 

Jude Coles

 

 

Matt is such a lovely guy, easy to talk to yet professional and fab at his job. Pictures were lovely, everything we asked for. He photographed endlessly without annoying people, defo value for money and I will recommend him as a wedding photographer to anyone.

 

Carla And Darren 

 

 

Hi Matt, 

We're now in Mexico! NY was totally nuts, but good. 😀

The slide show is fantastic! We are blown away by the pictures! 

 

It was an amazing day & we can't thank you enough, you were brilliant! 

 

Christine And Paul 

 

 

Myself and duane can not thank you enough for making our special day that bit extra special. OMG what can i say…….. tears are streaming (happy tears) we absolutely love them, they are amazing.I was abit nervous about having a stranger photographing our special day but you are amazing, it really helped getting to meet up with you before hand.

Then on the big day it was like you weren’t even there, you managed to take the most amazing pictures without even being noticed, you just blended in.

I would recommend you 100%.

Thank you so much for capturing our special day and giving us memories that we can look back on forever.

 

Kirsty & Duane 

 

 

We loved having Matt as part of our wedding day. We were considering not having a photographer but we are so glad we did! From our initial meeting over a coffee through to the wedding itself, Matt helped us through the wedding process. He has a clear passion for his work and discussed our vision with us, which has now been brought to life.

On the day itself, the one thing that set Matt apart from other photographers we spoke to was that he was there at the time we wanted and didn't leave until 10 hours later when the day had come to an end. It was so refreshing and wonderful to find someone who wanted to be there for every moment to capture our day as it happened. He was flexible and understanding and our guests noticed how professional he was, even when timings changed last minute! We cannot thank him enough for the gorgeous photographs we have to remember our perfect day and would highly recommend Creating Diamonds to anyone. We love our picture!!!

 

Carrie and Ed 

 

 

We had Matt at Creating Diamonds shoot our wedding day and I cannot express enough how pleased we were. He met up with us before hand for a very In depth consultation and by the time he left he felt like a friend so we felt very comfortable about him shooting our day! He turnt up at the arranged time on the morning for the bridal preparation and continued to shoot all through till after the first dance. We also used him for a photo booth which all the guests loved and enjoyed using the props matt supplied! He was very professional from the moment we came across his services and throughout the day organised all the photos so we didn't have to worry about that side of things. He had a lot of good ideas for which pictures would look great and was also happy to snap anything we wanted! We received our slide show a week later and couldn't be more happier with the photos he'd shot all so natural and so many we didn't even know he had taken! I would recommend matt to anyone seeking a wedding photographer. Such a talented man!

From 9:00am to 9:00pm Matt was shooting non stop, from capturing me playing with my son outside the registery office too our first dance of the evening. Every little moment and every big moment was captured. I also liked matts vision, he sees scenery and lighting that you don't realise is there and his passion when he talks about Photography is undeniable. All our guests mentioned about how hard he works during the day. Best decision we made when picking a photographer for our wedding day!

Dale & Liz Utting

 

 

We engaged the services of Creating Diamonds for our son's wedding in June 2015 and we were so pleased with this decision. Never before have we seen a photographer at a wedding work so hard for so long and provide so much. Our son and his new wife were absolutely delighted with the results.

 

We first met with Matt, at the wedding venue, about 10 days before the wedding, although we had spoken with him on the phone a few weeks prior to that, and found him to be personable and professional. The bride and groom clearly ‘clicked’ with Matt from the outset and it was evident that he would work well with them on the day, which he did. We initially agreed with Matt on an eight-hour package; with Matt being present on the day from about 1:00 p.m. In the event, he arrived well before midday and, apart from taking 10 minutes out for his own lunch during the reception, Matt worked right through until after 10:00 p.m. So many of the guests commented on how hard the photographer was working and that he was “such a nice guy”.

Matt's approach to wedding photography is all about telling the ‘story’ of the day. The images produced included the expected, formal, shots – e.g. Bride and groom, bride and groom with bridesmaids, bride and groom with parents/siblings/grandparents etc – but many of the other shots were quite informal, with the photographer being unobtrusive, and those, in particular, truly portrayed the character of individuals and the essence of the whole day.

 

Without hesitation, we recommend Creating Diamonds to anyone who wants to really capture the memories of their special day.

When I first met Matt I liked him instantly he was warm friendly and professional and put me totally at

ease on my wedding day, he is hard working and dedicated and my wedding photos were amazing a

True pro and once again we thank you.

 

Jane and Nathan

 

 

Hi Matt we would just like to thank you for the gorgeous wedding photos. We love them all! Everyone who has seen the photos are so impressed with the photography. You made us feel so relaxed and at ease, and captured such natural special moments. I'm over the moon with them!! For the canvas print, we would love the photo of us sat on the bench please. I'm so glad you were there on our special day to capture such precious moments!! Highly recommended, thank you

 

Kelly And Callum

 

 

Matt was a pleasure to work with. We brought him in freelance to shoot behind the scenes with the groom and his best men for a video we were shooting. Both his video and photography were spot on. Highly recommended.

 

Dan Joyce, Managing Director, JOYCE/DIVISION

 

 

“We have worked with Matt Law on two separate photo shoots one in an outdoors beach environment and another indoors with use of flash and creative lighting. Matt was thoroughly professional throughout, following our brief well and putting our models at ease. The final images were transferred to us quickly and both assignments were completed really efficiently. Matts passion for his work and quality of the end product means that we wouldn’t hesitate to use him again”

 

Matt Strathern, Managing Director, Northcore Global

 

 

I launched my Empower Yoga business last summer and asked Matt if he could take a set of photos that I could use to help promote myself. I explained to Matt the effect I was looking for and we had a fun afternoon while he took the shots.  Matt was completely professional from initial contact right through to providing a fabulous range of final photos that have had a massive impact wherever I have used them; several have been picked up for press articles and they have been invaluable on my social media feeds, blog posts and other promotional avenues.  They have made exactly the impact I hoped for and I wouldn't hesitate to use Matt again for future shoots. Highly recommended.'

 

Dr Tracy Johnson

 

 

“Matt at Creating Diamonds is a complete professional. I have worked with him on multiple Fitness photo-shoots for Apex Fitness Systems and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

 

From the initial planning process to the photo shoot, to the final images Matt offered incredible knowledge and skill. He was in contact every step of the way, helping plan the style and design of the shoot, as well as deliver some incredible images. He made every single person (some of whom were quite nervous) feel comfortable and happy throughout the whole process. The shoots themselves have been great fun thanks to Matt’s attitude and delivery, which has resulted in getting the best images possible from clients and myself.

 

He works tirelessly to deliver a service above and beyond expectations, no photo, pose or idea was too much effort, he accommodated absolutely everything I needed and that is why I will continue to use Creating Diamonds for all of my photographic work. Unbelievable service.”
