Patrick and Hollie Mateer – award winning wedding photographers



Hi we’re Patrick and Hollie and we live in Cottingham, East Yorkshire. That’s us above on our own wedding day. We may be based in Yorkshire, however we photograph weddings from Manchester to Montenegro, from The Lake District to Loch Lomond, from Derbyshire to Devon – just to name a few locations! Patrick loves films, Indian food and playing guitar, Hollie loves flowers, crafts and everything creative. We love spending time with each other and our young family (and building monuments out of Lego!)  That’s an image us on our own wedding day above – just the happiest day of our lives! To ensure you receive the best service and best images possible, we can only photograph a maximum of 40 weddings each wedding season – we book up quickly every single year. Please do get in touch now if you’d like to see if we are free on your wedding date.

Yorkshire Wedding Photography – Award Winning Wedding Photography – covering the globe

From our Yorkshire base we cover weddings right across the UK and Europe, providing one, two or sometimes even three photographers. Every wedding is different so we are happy to provide whatever is needed. We often class ourselves as M and G Wedding Photography Yorkshire Wedding Photographer.

Don’t get posed – get married!

We all document weddings naturally, without posing. We have won many awards for our work and we all love what we do. We produce beautiful images by capturing moments authentically, without staging things or posing you. We tell all our couples: have the best day ever and forget we’re there. It really is as simple and relaxed as that! Then, when you re-live your day through our images, you’ll see your day as it really happened – you won’t see cheesy or awkward poses or staged moments.

Real moments and real memories

We love smiles and real emotions. What is key to us is that every wedding is unique and our images will reflect your day as it really happened and show your personalities as we let you be yourselves. There is no template or set pattern for our images and this is why we love our job, meeting new people and travelling to new places while all the time taking the most creative, unique and beautiful images.  It’s your day – not ours! Lastly, we are not traditional photographers – there will be no standing in a line for hours taking endless group shots  which not only uses up your time but also your guests as well. Even if you choose to have a few group photographs, these will never take over your day.

We love what we do

Most importantly, we do this job because we love wedding photography: there is no better feeling for us than being able to deliver images to our couples that capture real memories that will be treasured and loved for a lifetime.
