The biggest factor in my enjoyment for a wedding day is the couple. I’m very fortunate to nearly always be booked by couples who “get me” and have an instant rapport, and this is what makes the day fun and produces the best images. The second factor is the venue which is why my matara centre wedding photography is some of my favourites in the Cotswolds!

We are spoilt for choice with wedding venues in Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds. Venues to cater for all budgets and styles, but if you want something a bit quirky, personal and very unique then the Matara Centre is well worth a visit.

​I continue to have a great time with Matara. Shooting multiple weddings, winning a Best of the Best award in both 2017 and 2018, and being featured in their blog here with a great Q&A! You can also read my latest Matara Centre Wedding Photography blog here.

If you’re looking for a laid back, unobtrusive, fun guy to photograph your wedding, lee’s your man!

Lee i believe took on Tess and Jon’s wedding as a last minute save, due to their original photographer having to pull out for family commitments, but what a fabulous job he did! The pictures are truly magical! Lee obviously had little time to get to know Tess and Jon but i personally feel he managed to reflect them perfectly within the pictures. This summer solstice wedding was definitely one to remember! If you’re looking for a laid back, unobtrusive, fun guy to photograph your wedding, lee’s your man!

Matara Centre Wedding Day Video Diary

Lee is quite simply brilliant!

Lee Hawley Photography Tess John-83

Lee is quite simply brilliant! He took the most amazing collection of images throughout our wedding day: lovely natural shots of our dear friends and family (many of whom are now using his pictures for their social media profile pics as he has a great knack for capturing the best in people!!); pictures of the tiny details; pictures of the whole happy big group; and some simply stunning shots of us out at sunset that are photographically brilliant- and way beyond our wildest dreams as to what the images for the day could possibly be. We couldn’t have asked for a more magical or memorable record of the day.
Not only that- he’s an all-round lovely human, great on the preparatory communications and super professional throughout. Trust me -you really, really do want to work with him for your wedding! Very, very highly recommended by us both. Tess and John.

..captured the heart and soul


We chose Lee to take our wedding photos last weekend and we know we definitely made the right choice. Everyone really appreciated his energy and company and for us the photos genuinely captured the heart and soul of the occasion. Highly recommended.
