Hi and welcome to Martelle, a husband and wife professional Nottingham Wedding Photographer team based in Hucknall. We know there are lots of photographers in the Nottingham area, each offering a great service, but we feel that our creative wedding photography, coupled with our caring, fun and relaxed personalities sets us apart from the others. We are a team and yes, we are married to each other – they say you shouldn’t mix business and pleasure but to be honest it really works with us and we love working together!
We are a professional team and are fully qualified and fully insured, with a wealth of experience. By hiring a professional, you don’t have to worry about the weather. We enjoy using the weather and it brings out the creativity in us. Be it a clear blue summer sky or a rainy shower we think you'll have beautiful photos to treasure for a lifetime.
Evening dusk and low light wedding photography is a speciality, and during this days with less daylight hours and longer nights our couples can take advantage of earlier sunsets and dramatic low light portraits.
For most of your wedding day, we shoot in a documentary/reportage style where we capture natural and unposed moments as they happen. We usually start in the morning with the bride during her preparations and will mix this style of documentary coverage in with some storytelling or editorial photos of the details. For us these images are very important and they are very often overlooked by other photographers.
Throughout your wedding day, we capture moments like this during wedding speeches or guests mingling during the drinks reception. For us this timeless and documentary style coverage is perfect for telling the story of your special day.
In our experience it's the fleeting moments and the connections made between people that you’ll look back on and treasure for a lifetime.
We all know that the British Weather is unpredictable and a topic of conversation for many. No matter what anybody does they cannot control the weather - it will simply be what it will be.
Our approach, as professionals, is to expect the unexpected and be prepared. In honesty we love to get creative with cloudy and stormy skies as well as bright sunshine and in case of rain we always have several umbrellas we can use to help keep the rain off.
Our cameras are waterproof, we will dry out and the weather has never stopped us yet, nor will it. We love to get creative in the rain and we love to get some great moody skies if you'll let us.... we will keep you as dry as possible and get some great shots!
One of the things that makes us different to other photographers is our ability to work in low light situations. We love to create some dynamic images using off camera flash and sparklers (we provide the sparklers.) It does have to be dark for this so this types of shots are ideal not suited to summer weddings.
We ask our couples if they want some photos of sparklers and/or the brolly shot. If you say yes - we will get it. We get very creative with sparklers and they look stunning. This image is our most requested shot! It looks stunning on canvas - you should see it!
We usually cover the whole of your day, from preparations in the morning to the speeches after the wedding breakfast and on until the first dance and the party. If you don't want a full day package though we do offer a part day package as well.
We have a selection of full day collections including a USB only package or an album package. These are our Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond and Deluxe Collections. Our USBs are bespoke and a diamente heart shape and they come its very own specially designed box. For our albums we only use the finest album makers and these are built around your choice of images. We really do recommend that you see our albums as we have a variety to choose from.
All your photos are available to view online in a gallery and they are password protected.
We often hear back from our couples after they have received their images, slideshow and album. From the moment we meet, and become your photographers, we welcome you into the Martelle Family. We develop a friendship that lasts. We are much more than photographers and have been described as such by many a bride.
We love to hear nice things and we thrive on them. To see what some of our couples have said head over to our Kind Words page.
