About us


Martin & Ellen
A Husband & Wife Team

Nottingham Wedding Photographers – Martelle – Martin & Ellen

We are Martin & Ellen, a husband and wife wedding photography team from Nottingham.  We live a few miles outside of Nottingham and have been photographing weddings for over 10 years.    We are fun loving, down to earth, relaxed and caring.

We love to  travel.  More specifically we love cruising and we have been fortunate to visit many different countries and have been lucky to find out more about many of the different cultures, cuisines and ways of life. We love concerts and theatre but equally love the peace and quiet at home with our feet up, a movie on and a nice coffee

Becoming a Wedding photography was never planned.  In the year we got married we attended 4 other weddings as guests and heard many nice comments about the photos we had taken. We were also told by 2 couples that our photos were better than the professional they had hired!! It was these kind words that made us think and after a lot of discussion and thought we created Martelle Photography.  Since that date we continue to push and improve our skills.  The rest, as they say, is history.

Both of us feel very privileged to have been asked to photographed 100+ weddings over the last few years.  We have met many amazing couples and have been fortunate to witness so many happy days.

Each wedding is different and amazing in itself.   One of the best bits for us is hearing the fun and laughter at each one and the friendships we develop with people.

We are often described as so much more than photographers.  We really help you through your day with many things such as the etiquette, fixing button holes and cufflinks, helping with speeches and we are always on hand to help with the dress/suits. Oh, and we also capture amazing images!

Fun & Relaxed Nottingham Wedding Photographer

There is nothing worse than a wedding photographer who you don’t get on with.  You will be itching to get away from him/her.  We are fun, approachable and down to earth.  Our personalities are what makes us different.  We have a ‘can do’ attitude and work hard with each couple to give them the very best day possible.  Martin is a calming influence for many and mixes well with guests – getting photos you won’t even know are being taken!  Ellen has a way of getting the camera shy people to have relax and is brilliant with little ones!

Together Martin & Ellen make a great wedding photography team and go that extra yard to to make for natural and stress free wedding day photographs.
