Hi! I’m Matthew Laraway, the guy behind multimedia company, Laramedia, based in Preston, Lancashire. Over the last decade, I have produced exciting visual content for dozens of small businesses around the UK, and in recent years I have been honing my wedding video and photography skills, which brings us down the aisle to Matthew Laraway Weddings.
Unlike Laramedia, MLW is dedicated to the art of wedding video and photography ONLY. From cinematic engagement shoots to romantic ceremony coverage, Matthew Laraway Weddings offers something for all of you lovebirds out there. My focus is on capturing the magic and romance of your big day so that you can relive every special moment again and again. And I will achieve this without disrupting a single vow or dancing guest!
I love my job. I get to be a part of couple’s most special and happiest days – how can I not be happy with going to work! I take great pride in every film & photos I create; making sure each one is tailored to every couple and different from the next. I really do want to make these films special to you. That’s why I offer engagement video & photoshoot; as I take the time to get to know you both, about your relationship and I’ve come to know so many of my couples so well. So it really is a personal business to me.
Your wedding lasts a day. MLW visuals are forever.
I booked Matthew 18 months before our wedding after he filmed a charity event close to my heart! I met him a few days before our wedding And had every faith that he was going to make our video perfect! He told me exactly what he could do and would do, he assured my he would be early to suss out the venue to get the best shots! The final result - overwhelming, everything We wanted and more, it brought back so many memories capturing peoples faces and the emotions on the day. Thank you Matt for blending in you could easily of been one of my guests, you kept me mellow ... ish when I was starting to stress haha! Everyone felt at ease too! You worked around with the photographer which I know isn’t easy if you don’t know each other! True professional from beginning when emailing and telling explaining the options till arranging coming for tea with me and jay to watch our movie with champagne! We love our gift box and our favourite photo that he also captures with his Russian vintage lens! We have become great friends, No 1 wedding videographer for sure!Allana & Jamie
I would highly recommend MLW! It was truly a blessing and stress-free to have them as our photographer and videographer for our special day. He was super professional and had great equipment on the day, including a drone, which made it a fun shoot. We had so many quality photos and multiple films as a product of our wedding day. My husband and I are truly grateful for their service.Ann & Dennis
Myself and Martin couldn't thank Matthew and his team more for their professionalism, fantastic efforts and attention to detail! Our engagement shoot/video and wedding video are absolutely amazing! You wouldn't even have noticed Matt and his team were there on the day. Thank you so so much for capturing our special day, our video has shown us both bits from the morning we spent apart, captured bits that we missed or went unnoticed! A fantastic memory that we can now watch over and over again!Hayley & Martin
