“You have captured our day perfectly – looking through the photos brings all the emotions back. You’re so skilled at capturing candid moments and we’re so pleased we chose you as our photographers. We wanted our day to be relaxed and as far away from the stuffy traditional wedding as possible. We didn’t want to spend the day in stiff poses, but wanted to simply enjoy the company of our loved ones and have a wonderful day, so your reportage style really fitted with us and the theme of the day. Despite the lack of sunset the skies did not disappoint throughout the day – the moody skies were beautiful and you captured them so well. You also captured all of the little details we worked so hard to bring to life. We’ll treasure our images forever. Thank you so much – for the photos, but also for being so lovely throughout the whole experience. We couldn’t have wished for anything more.” Sarah and Aidan, married at the East Yorkshire Barns – Yorkshire.

“We saw some of M and G Photographic’s work shortly after we got engaged and fell in love with their natural documentary style. When we eventually set a date they were one of the first suppliers we booked and we were so excited when they were free on our date! Their natural style was perfect for us – no fake posing and no spending hours of our wedding in formal line ups. Honestly, we didn’t even realise they were there!!
We were absolutely thrilled with the photographs and videos of the day- it was amazing to relive it. The photographs really do capture the ‘feeling’ of our wedding. We haven’t picked which ones we want for our album yet- there are just so many excellent ones! We opted for the full day coverage with two photographers and a videographer and we are so glad we did. If your budget stretches then don’t hesitate to use it on your pictures with these guys! If you feel uncomfortable having your picture taken (we both did) then we would recommend you go for the pre wedding shoot- it helped us get an idea of what to expect on the day. That said, they were so unobtrusive on the day that I think we would have been fine without the pre wedding shoot too. There is a reason these guys win so many awards and that’s because they are awesome at what they do! We would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone” Katie and Den, married at Tyn Dwr Hall, Wales

“M and G Photographic captured our day perfectly. They subtly went about taking the brilliant pictures of us and our guests throughout the day. In many ways, one of the biggest compliments to pay them is that we didn’t realise they were there half the time! All of the guests have commented on how brilliant the pictures are. We couldn’t have asked for any more from M and G and would recommend them to anyone who wants to have beautiful memories of their biggest day. Thanks again, Josh and Rebecca.” Such a lovely review from Josh and Rebecca, married at Sandburn Hall in 2019.

“We received all the pictures and they are fantastic. Thank you so much. We love them. As do our families too!” Sarah and Joe, married at a Marquee wedding, Warwickshire

“M and G Photographic were absolutely amazing from start to finish. Their style of photography is incredible and was so relaxed. We hardly noticed they were there and they made us feel so comfortable throughout our special day. They worked tirelessly all day to get some brilliant photos of our wedding and worked even harder in getting our photos to us as soon as possible. We are so incredibly grateful we came across M and G photographic and love every single one of our wedding photos. Many people have commented on our photos, on what a unique style they shoot in, capturing every single moment. We would recommend M and G Photographic to anyone and everyone. Thank you for capturing our perfect day!” Sophie and Josh, married at the Hospitium in York, North Yorkshire

“Our main aim was to find someone who could capture moments on our wedding day that we wouldn’t see with our own eyes. Someone that would blend into the background and photograph significant details we would naturally miss whilst enjoying our day. M and G Photographic did the most amazing job at finding these moments. We absolutely love our photos and seeing those moments of laughter and emotion that we didn’t get to see with our own eyes is incredible. We asked for a later start and a later finish so we could have more of the evening reception covered and when we looked over the photos we could not help but smile and laugh. Seeing all our guests and how much they enjoyed themselves was the best feeling. Thank you so much for photographing our special day we are in awe of the images.” Jade and Tom, married at the Fleece Inn, West Yorkshire

“M and G Photographic were sensational at our wedding. We had it at Long Furlong Barn in Worthing which was a particularly picturesque venue. They were very professional on the day and blended in well with their documentary style shooting. They were very patient and accommodating to any requests we had. Best of all they were able to turn our photos around in a very quick timeframe and we’re both over the moon with what they’ve produced. Seriously good images that will be getting a run for many years to come! Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.” Matt and Ruki, married at the Long Furlong Barn, West Sussex

“Our wedding day was something we’d planned for 2 years, but throughout those 2 years you never know what it’s all actually going to look like! But we needn’t have worried, we had the BEST day with all our family and friends and having M and G Photographic as our photographer was the icing on the cake! From our very first meeting we felt so relaxed in their company, they are very professional but also manags to put you at ease – and no questions are too silly either! :) The pre- wedding shoot is definitely a must too! M and G Photographics’ style captured our day perfectly, full of happy tears, laughter and lots of family and friends enjoying themselves. When they says ‘you won’t notice I’m there’, they really means it! they manages to be everywhere without being seen and get those special private moments as well which we really love. If you’re looking for a natural look to your photos, there’s none better! Thank you for bringing our wedding day to life, we’ll cherish these photos forever! Love from the Trumans” Ali and Jake, married at Sledmere Barn, East Yorkshire

“From first contact with M and G Photographic we knew we wanted them to capture our big day. They were warm, friendly and informative throughout and responded quickly. We have so many wonderful photos from the day, capturing natural moments that we had missed. They fitted in perfectly and were almost invisible on the day!” Sarah and Jon, married at East Riddlesden Hall in Yorkshire

“M and G Photographic – where do we even start. Every wedding you shoot, regardless of weather or location, looks beautiful and it’s all credit to your amazing talent. We are blown away by the photos we have received, each and every single one is beautiful, and our highlights reel has made everyone cry! We never felt set up or posed, you just blended into the background and captured the day as it happened. We hardly even noticed you were there at times, and we mean that in the best possible way, because it was during those times that you captured the best moments. We will treasure our photos and video forever, thank you so much.” Lewis and Laura, married at Normanby Hall, Lincolnshire

“We chose M and G Photographic because we felt they would suit our laid back style and they were completely perfect! M and G are excellent at capturing lovely candid moments and the few posed pictures we asked for turned out wonderfully. We couldn’t have been happier with how they were with us during the day and how the pictures have turned out. We couldn’t recommend them enough!” Robyn and David, married at the Tithe Barn Bolton Abbey, North Yorkshire

“The photographs are perfect, thank you so much. Having you take our photos was the best decision we could have made.” Becky and Bobbie, married at Cruck Barn in North Yorkshire

“These guys are simply the best. I have never met more talented photographers than these. They are so discreet, kind and friendly, and the results of our photos are simply insane! I’ve worked with many many photographers and wedding photographers in my line of work as a wedding florist and these are my top faves.” Zara and Alex, married in East Yorkshire

“We couldn’t be happier with the photos we have of our day. Every step of the process was awesome – M and G Photographic were a pleasure to work with in the lead up, they fit seamlessly into our day keeping everything relaxed and the photos capture the atmosphere of our day perfectly!! For me the photographer choice was one of the most important of our day, and I am so glad that we booked M and G Photographic!” Josh and Jasmin, married at a DIY wedding in Essex

“From the first time we met M and G Photographic at our pre wedding shoot we knew we made the right choice. they put us right at ease and those photos were amazing. But then there was the wedding… We hardly knew they were there but they seemed to be everywhere from the photos we have recieved. Our wedding album is full of different emotions captured which has allowed us to ‘re live our best day spent with friends and family. Me and Kerion were taken away from the hive of activity at two different points on the day. This was brilliant, not only did it allow me and Keiron to have time alone but we also have amazing photos that captured this. We can not recommend M and G Photographic enough.” Rachel and Keiron, married at Hodsock Priory, Nottinghamshire

“We cannot thank you enough. These photographs are so much more than I imagined. I spent hours looking for the right photographer and I’m so glad I found you! M and G Photographic were fantastic from inquiring about booking up until getting the final footage. We decided to go for both the photography and videography and we are so glad we did, it is like reliving the day over and over again with friends and family. On the day they were fantastic, you couldn’t tell they were there but yet they seemed to capture everything from a variety of angles! We wanted them to feel part of the party and they were lovely to talk to which was important for us to feel at ease. We knew they specialised in ‘non posed’ images but even the posed ones we requested (which was no trouble for them!) were beyond our expectations. They were willing to go into fields with cows with us so a big thumbs up there! The film and photo footage was the most important purchase of the wedding and I couldn’t be happier with the service and end result. We couldn’t recommend them more. Thank you M and G Photographic.” Sarah and Rob, married in Derbyshire

“Thank you, thank you, thank you! The pictures are more than what we hoped for and captured the day perfectly. You made us feel at ease and half the time we didnt even realise you were there snapping away, allowing for the gorgeous natural pictures we wanted.” Louise and James, married at the Manor Rooms in East Yorkshire

“The pictures M and G Photographic took from our wedding day were truly stunning. Choosing a wedding photographer was really difficult because whilst the day is amazing it is the photos that help support your lasting memory of something that so much time and effort goes into planning. The quality of the photos we received after our wedding felt like they matched that same effort we had put into making the day special and made us feel beautiful the more we looked at the photos. The quality and finish of the editing and shots has been superb and being someone who is highly self critical, especially in photos, I was beaming, fighting back tears and glowing with confidence as I looked through my wedding photos. They are certainly worth keeping forever. M and G Photographic managed to capture a range of special people and some really artistic shots of parts of the day that I didn’t ask for but mean so much now in helping the memory of not only that day but that time of my life and the people within it. Their photos were enjoyed by not only us but all the guests who I am sure loved to see themselves photographed by M and G Photographic who clearly have an amazing talent. I am sure the photos will only become more precious over time.” Mary and James, married at Windy Harbour in the Peak District

“We just wanted to say thank you so much for our fantastic wedding photos. We are really pleased that you have managed to get them out to us earlier than planned it has saved us extra headache after people were asking! Everyone that has seen them so far has had nothing to say other than “fantastic”. For those that have seen them, they are having a difficult decision choosing! Everyone after the wedding also commented on how you were on the day – so relaxed which made people feel at ease and half the time they didn’t even know you were there. That was a massive plus for me & Chris as well, as were not one for posing for the camera but you certainly made us feel at ease and captured some sneaky moments (Chris in tears) that we can look back on. People have asked me for your info & have readily passed it on so you may be receiving emails about bookings / availability in the future. We absolutely cannot thank you both enough for photographing our day” Emma and Chris, married at the Inn On The Lake in the Lake District

“I always had a really clear idea of how I wanted my wedding photographs to look, but when I looked at photographers work none of them seemed quite right. A bit too posed or a bit too formal. And then I saw M and G’s work I knew these were the guys I wanted to photograph our wedding day! Their style was absolutely perfect. Informal photographs, capturing amazing, beautiful and most importantly REAL moments from our day. Looking through our photos, it’s really is like re living it all over. We’ve had so many comments on how wonderful the photos are, I may be biased but I think there the best wedding photos I ever seen!” Melissa and Nathan, married in Nottinghamshire

“The best thing about our wedding is how amazingly well you guys captured it, your pictures and videography tell our story from start to finish. You were always in the background taking the most incredible, in the moment pictures which is more than we could have wished for! You are a friendly, talented bunch who know exactly how to capture the sheer emotions and brilliance of the day. When we first saw video and photographs of the day we cried. To have the best day of your lives captured in the way you guys did is priceless.” Victoria and Luke married at a marquee wedding in North Yorkshire

“M and G Photographic made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day. We both were extremely nervous of being photographed and body confidence is something as a bride, I was really Struggling with. They made me feel so at ease and relaxed I actually forgot I was getting my pictures taken. Nothing was too much trouble and even got the chance to go on location for a private and country style photo shoot at sunset. What could be more romantic. Perfect company. Perfect people. Perfect photography. Thank you from Mr and Mrs Bolton!” Maddy and Luke, married in East Yorkshire

“We were recommended M and G photographic by a family member and we were definitely not disappointed from the very first contact! They has always been very approachable, professional and we enjoyed our pre-wedding shoot where we were able to get to know their style and ask as many questions as we needed to. They was always friendly and made us feel comfortable. Our wedding day was captured perfectly, They picked up on the small details of the day and we have some amazing natural photos to treasure forever. Although the day was extremely windy you would never be able to tell from the photos, M and G Photographic made sure we were never kept from the party for too long. they wre very discreet, offered a helping hand when needed and was a great addition to the day. We were able to request any photos we wanted on the day which was great. We also got our photos back very quickly! Thank you so much!!” Ellis and Joe married at Houchins in Essex

“Simply amazing photographs. A perfect memory of your special day. From booking to the actual day, everything was easy and relaxed. Anyone looking for natural wedding photographs need look no further. Five star!” Rebecca and Joe married at the Crab and Lobster in North Yorkshire

“From the moment we got engaged we knew that the photos would be key to the memories we would be creating on the biggest day of our lives. Having looked at other photographer’s online M and G really stood out, the images were so natural and everything about their style appealed. Meeting M and G Photographic we knew we wanted them to photograph our big day and from that moment the stress was gone and we could look forward to the day. The pre-wedding photo shoot was fab, my husband not so keen, left with a big grin and we loved the way we relaxed in front of the camera which meant we could be ourselves on the big day. The photos of the big day are above and beyond what we could have hoped. M and G Photographic seemlessly blended into the day and the moments they caught are priceless and for us we were/have been able to relive the day, including moments we hadn’t ourselves experienced. The final cherry on the cake has been the album which will hold pride of place in our home. Thank you Patrick and team The new Mr and Mrs Adamson.” Claire and Cai married at Sandburn Hall near York in North Yorkshire

“We were so glad we found M and G Photographic it was 100% the best decision we made. We was so worried about finding the right photographer to capture our special day. We were both unsure as we aren’t ‘posey photograph’ people, however M and G Photographics’ relaxed style made us feel at ease straight away. We had numerous emails back and forth and never felt as though we were being a pain. They were so informative and gave us tips and advice for on our wedding day. We found this so useful as neither of us really knew what we were doing. To our relief they could even tell us what to expect on our wedding day down to the finer details. The attention to detail from M and G photographic was absolutely fantastic. From the first enquiry to the moment we hugged and said goodbye to them after our amazing day. The emails were always full of information and very professional. We went to our pre wedding photo shoot at Yorkshire Sculpture park where we spent some time getting to know M and G Photographic. They were so polite and relaxed which made us feel great straight away. They were very thoughtful and considerate as Sophie had recently sustained a knee injury, and they adapted where we would have our photographs to ensure she didn’t have to limp too much on the day! Our big day arrived and the photography was not a worry at all throughout the day. We had the two photographer package and they were both amazing! Friendly and relaxed they were just both a part of our day. People commented on how lovely they both were and enjoyed getting to know them! We received our photos very quickly and absolutely loved reliving the moments they both captured. Some beautiful moments all captured for us to treasure forever. The photographs are stunning and could not be happier! We can not recommend enough. Thank you both so much. Mrs and Mrs Ayres” Sarah and Sophie, married in East Yorkshire

“We are so pleased we picked M and G to capture our big day. From meeting at our pre wedding photo shoot we knew we’d made the right choice. We loved the laid back/natural style of the photos. That being said, I don’t think we quite expected our wedding photos to be quite so beautiful. M and G Photographic were fantastic on the day. They captured all the right moments without being intrusive and felt more like friends/guests. They worked really well with our other suppliers and our guests commented on how relaxed they made everyone feel. Our photos were sent to us much quicker than we expected and there isn’t a single photo we don’t love. What an absolutely incredible job the team did! Thank you M and G for capturing the most beautiful and precious pictures of our big day! We’ll cherish them forever.” Sarah and Alastair married at Howsham Hall near York in North Yorkshire

“Our wedding was 5 years in the planning but from day one we both knew we wanted to find the perfect photographer. We searched the internet and wedding fayres high and low and eventually found the photographer we had been looking for through Facebook. From day one M and G have been so accommodating from the emails to the pre wedding shoot, to the final wedding day. We wanted a photographer who we didn’t know was there, taking relaxed and non posey pictures but at same time photographe that were our memories forever. M and G Photographic have blown us away with the images and we will be forever grateful to them. Not only have you created memories for ourselves but memories for our future children to look back on and treasure forever!” Ellie and Joe married at Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds, West Yorkshire

“We’ve just received our photos, ‘blown away’ is an understatement. M and G Photographic covered our wedding day and have managed to photograph the day perfectly. The sun was shining, the beer was flowing, the food was amazing and we wanted everyone to have fun. The photos taken captured every moment of the wedding from start to finish. They have been a pleasure to deal with, from the time we placed our enquiry, to our pre-wedding shoot, right through to the big day itself. An amazing job and what talent you all have. Thank you so much” Kelly and Adam married in East Yorkshire

“Thank you so so much M and G Photographic for capturing our special day! Thank you for making it so easy for us on the day. It was an absolute pleasure and James and I hope you enjoyed it too! Looking through all the photos again really brings back such wonderful and happy memories of our special day. you both captured such wonderful natural moments during the day, and I do believe you have caught every one of our guests on camera! Thank you both again!” Charlie and James, married at their DIY wedding in Derbyshire

“After selecting our wedding date and securing the church, we booked our first supplier. This was M and G Photographic. Having met them already at two of my friends weddings and seeing the beautiful wedding pictures from their special days, it was really easy for us to decide who we wanted to capture our wedding. The pre-wedding photo shoot, that was also included in our package, reaffirmed what we already knew and wanted from our wedding photographers. Capturing a substantial number of excellent photos without inhibiting proceedings and authentically capturing our special day. Preserving memories of such a big day is no small responsibility. Both my husband and I wholeheartedly recommend M and G photographic to anyone who is unsure as to who to trust with such a responsibility. We’re very happy that we did.” Fiona and George married at their DIY wedding in Lincolnshire

“M and G Photographic recently photographed our big day, we were overjoyed with the photos they managed to capture. They surpassed our expectations. Also they were super friendly and totally made us feel comfortable with the whole experience which is exactly what we wanted. We would definitely recommend!” Lucy and Amy, married in Hull, East Yorkshire

“The photos you captured are nothing short of stunning! You made us feel so comfortable in front of the lens and managed to capture so many moments we had forgotten and missed – how did you manage to be everywhere?! I will continue to shout your praises to anyone who listens. Choosing a photographer for me was one of the biggest decisions and something I spent a long time researching, but I knew as soon as I saw M and G Photographic I wanted you to capture our day and I know I made the right choice! Thank you so much, your professionalism yet relaxed approach was exactly what we wanted. We love our photos, thank you, thank you, thank you!” Nathan and Laura, married in Suffolk

“You were the best; you are so easy to get on with, you join in but also disappear, you got some of the best shots that we didn’t know about or expect at all. You work with such intuition and ease that you knew what to get without us having to ask for anything and are two of the nicest and most genuine people we’ve met.” Alison and Matt, married in the Peak District

“M and G Photographic were amazing! We honestly could not have asked for better. We hate having our photo taken but they made us feel so relaxed and we forgot they were there most of the time. Everything was so effortless and informal, just how we wanted it. The only thing we requested on the day was to use smoke bombs, we didn’t know how or in what way but they photographed our guests running around us and got some amazing shots! They didnt miss a single thing and are award winners for a reason! They even managed to get our wedding featured in whimsical wonderland wedding blog. They made us feel so special and by some miracle. They both worked so hard and we loved everything! Hire them! You wont be disappointed” Heidi and James, married at the Pumping House in Nottinghamshire

“When planning our wedding we knew 2 things for certain: 1) that photography would be a priority spend for us and 2) that we wanted a videographer as well. We spent months searching for the perfect combination of wow-factor photos and a show-stopping video. As soon as I came across M and G Photographic we knew we had found the perfect company. The dramatic documentary style they specialise in really brings to life the atmosphere of the weddings they shoot, and the natural, un-posed shots catch guests and couples at their best. The pictures we received were incredible and very true to the style we had fallen in love with. We have some amazing photos of our friends and family looking relaxed and having the time of their lives! They were great at putting us at ease and blending in with our day which meant they could capture some truly excellent shots. We had such a laugh together, and they were so good at accommodating all our whims (including when I asked to stop off in a field and grab a picture with a cow!) Thank you so much for doing such a perfect job! We keep watching the video over and over, it’s so wonderful to have footage of the day so we can properly soak it up. And the pictures are simply gorgeous, we will treasure them always! Thank you for capturing the joy everyone felt. Absolutely stunning.” Susie and Sean married at Lavant Memorial Hall, West Sussex

“Wow! We’ve been lost for words/in tears with the photos and video from M and G Photographic. From being incredibly accommodating and helpful from the first enquiry, to making us very comfortable getting photographed, and then such beautiful editing – you lot are amazing at what you do – I feel like I can’t even find the words right now! You’ve done such an amazing job at capturing endless lovely moments. Your style of photography really does tell a story and we got to relive our day through a whole new lens because of you. We can’t thank M and G Photographic enough, you’ve given us the best possible way to relive such wonderful memories.” Maha and Majid married in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire (we photographed their Nikah and Mehndi

“M and G Photographic were brilliant. They made us feel at ease from the moment they arrived. We didn’t want any posed photos, just natural shots of everybody having fun. When we got our pictures back we were overwhelmed. The guys captured the essence of the day beautifully. No forced smiles or awkward poses, just gorgeous pictures of everyone smiling and having fun. I would recommend M and G photography 100% to everybody. Warm and welcoming and above all amazing photographers.” Charlie and Gregg married at Burntwood Hall, Yorkshire

“We are so happy that we chose M and G Photographic to capture our perfect day. From initial contact, right through to receiving our photographs, M and G have been so friendly and helpful, making the photography side of wedding planning very easy and stress free. We enjoyed meeting M and G Photographic for the first time for our pre-wedding shoot for them to give us a feel for their photographic style first hand and talking us through how everything would work on the day. On the day they were amazing, both extremely polite and very professional. They allowed us to enjoy our day without us even knowing they were there most of the time and capturing all the beautiful moments in between. M and G Photographic made sure we spent most of our day with our guests by only taking us away for photographs for a short period of time, we did however enjoy this, as it was one of the only times we got to be alone together. The photographs were natural and unstaged and we felt very comfortable. We enjoyed having a look at the preview photos we were sent the next day, they were beautiful and gave us a glimpse of what was to come. We received our wedding photos 3 weeks later which was a lot quicker than we expected. The photos are stunning. We are so happy with how they have turned out and can’t stop looking at them. We feel they have captured our wedding perfectly and we now have a fantastic set of photos to look back on in years to come. We would highly recommend M and G Photographic’s work to anybody who is looking for natural, unstaged wedding photos.” Martha and Joe married at Aston Hall, South Yorkshire

“I always knew I wanted a natural photographer to photograph our wedding and after searching and searching, I came across M and G Photographic. I loved how all of their images were so light and not too heavy on contrast, like a lot of wedding photographers I came across and wanted to avoid. Even with Rich on crutches, they still managed to take beautiful images on our pre-wedding shoot! Choosing to have a second photographer was definitely worthwhile, we ended up with just under 1000 pictures of our big day. They both did an excellent job of photographing our beautiful February wedding, the sun was shining and they managed to capture this perfectly. We were so glad to have picked two professional and down to earth people to photograph our wedding and are in love with the final images! Thank you so much again!” Rachel and Richard married in West Yorkshire

“Booking M and G to photograph our day was one of the best decisions we ever made. Choosing the right photographer were extremely important to us, they went above and beyond our expectations. From the moment we booked M and G Photographic they were fantastic – so helpful, friendly and really took the time to get to know us as a couple – we felt they were more like a friend on the day! When we received our preview photographs, we were so overwhelmed by how beautiful they were and couldn’t wait to see them all – M and G did not disappoint! All of our photographs are stunning and we cannot thank you enough” Rhiannon and Ryan married in Lancashire

“Where to begin? M and G Photographic was fantastic from the moment we first got in touch to the pre-wedding shoot through to the day itself. Professional yet friendly, clearly very well experienced and we can’t thank the team enough. A great day which we will be able to remember forever with outstanding photos. Strongly recommend.” Rebecca and Lewis married at Whitley Hall, South Yorkshire

“M and G Photographic captured our lovely day in the Welsh Countryside, with ease and friendly attitude. Our guests all said how lovely you were, and you captured loads of moments that we missed on the day. So glad we had M and G Photographic there to capture our day!” Christina and Michael, married in Wales at Nanteos Mansion, Wales
