About Matt Pate Wedding Photography

Photographer. Chester, Cheshire


£500 - £1000

Hi, I’m Matt… 

I’m a wedding photographer based in Christleton, Chester. I cover all areas of the North West UK & beyond.

My mission is to repay my clients trust by producing images that are timeless and that evoke laughter and tears for all the right reasons, for now and for the generations to come. This comes from careful planning, proper listening and attention to detail.

Spotting and capturing those moments of pure magic! My style is very relaxed, always working with a smile.

Previous Weddings

I have been incredibly lucky to work at stunning venues all over the North West. I feel confident I can capture your day perfectly, even if the weather isn’t on our side. Its all about you as a couple and your guests

We recently shot a wedding at the beautiful Old Palace Chester. Anna & Matt were so much fun and full of life, the venue was stunning and located perfectly next to the river in the City.

I absolutely love North Wales and the surrounding coastline, so when I was asked to capture Lauren & Matt’s wedding at The Quay Hotel & Spa in Deganwy, I jumped at the opportunity!

Right on the waters edge, the Quay Hotel & Spa is a wonderful venue. Again it is all about the couple, I was very lucky to have Lauren, Matt & their guests make the day a wonderful experience for all.

Karolina & James got married in Chester city centre with a reception at The Chester Grosvenor. A fantastic city centre venue allowing couples and guests easy access to all of this historic cities landmarks.

Myself, Karolina & James had so much fun walking around the city, we all wanted more, so booked a ‘post wedding shoot’ on the hills surrounding Llangollen a few weeks after their wedding.

Matt was absolutely brilliant from the moment we met him. We had an engagement shoot with Matt and he also came to our wedding party. His relaxed and funny style makes you feel instantly calm and makes the whole process thoroughly enjoyable. At our party, Matt worked tirelessly and our guests loved him. He added a different dimension to the party and I am delighted with his work. He managed to capture real life action and fun, seamlessly, without staging anything. I would highly recommend using Matts service.

Absolutely can recommend Matt as a photographer for all special occasions. He met with us before our wedding day, which helped us to be at ease, all our pictures and sessions were fab. We even managed to do Chester clock pics at midday on a busy Saturday! Thank you so much for all your work!

Matt is an amazing photographer and easy to work with. The photos he produced are beautiful and we have had so many positive comments about them. Matt made everyone feel at ease. I would highly recommend Matt for anyone who wants the very best for their wedding.


My main catchment area is Chester, the North West and beyond.

I offer everyone who inquires with me, a zoom meeting before any deposit is taken, wedding photography is a very personal service, I believe couples should meet their photographer before booking with them.

I also offer a complimentary ‘pre wedding shoot’ to couples purchasing my full day wedding package. This helps to put people at ease about their wedding day photography, now understanding it won’t be awkward and uncomfortable, it’ll be a fun and pleasurable experience. Plus, we’ll get some nice images to begin the wedding story.

I like to take a 20% deposit upon booking to secure the date in my diary, then the final balance 30 days before the big day.
