Fun, Friendly, Relaxed and Trusted Ilkeston Wedding Photographer.
Award Winning Husband and Wife Wedding Photography Team.
NATURAL, CANDID & STRESS FREE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN HUCKNALL
Welcome to Martelle Photography, a trusted and recommended Ilkeston Wedding Photographer. We have been taking wedding photographs for over 10 years and are often described as much more than wedding photographers…
Martelle is Martin & Ellen, an award winning husband and wife wedding photography team. We live in Hucknall, near Nottingham and have been photographing weddings in Hucknall, Ilkeston, Nottingham, Derby and across the East Midlands and the UK for over 10 years.
Every wedding is different and for each wedding we capture images that you can treasure for years to come. We help make sure your special day runs as smoothly as possible whilst photographing your day and creating memories for you and and your family and friends to treasure.
For the majority of the day we capture unposed and candid moments of you and your families/friends but we are better known for our ‘WOW’ shots (They are called that as when we show them on the back of a camera most couples say WOW!)
As a professional wedding photographer in Ilkeston we take great pride in working hard to give you our very best photographs of your day. With over 10 years experience we have delivered photographs to a multitude of brides and grooms. Our relaxed and friendly personalities, coupled with our can do attitude, have helped many a bride and groom feel at ease and comfortable in the knowledge they are in safe hands.
We are helpful and caring people and we always offer support and help throughout your day, should you need it. As such, we have often been described as so much more than wedding photographers and we know this will be evident should you book us as your wedding photographer.
On Your Wedding Day
On your day we usually start about 2 hours before the wedding ceremony. This gives us time to get creative with the dress, shoes, flowers, jewellery and/or the cufflinks, ties, watches and shoes. It also allows us the chance to get some candid and relaxed photos during the getting ready stages.
Once we move to the ceremony we take photographs of your wedding guests arriving and relaxing before the big event. We then shoot throughout the ceremony, taking candid photos before the more usual formal group and family photos. After this we the take the happy couple somewhere quiet for a private shoot where they get to relax and be together for the first time without any guests. This allows us the opportunity to capture some truly beautiful wedding photographs and for the happy couple to relax for a short while.
As we are with you all day we also capture the speeches, the laughter and your guests having fun. We take lots of candid and informal wedding photographs before the first dance. Later on, we get creative in the evening sunset and after dark. This is when we apply our magic and capture those WOW shots.

Documentary Wedding Photographer in Ilkeston
Martelle Photography, for the last 3 years, has been named as one of the top 100 photographers in the UK. We are extremely proud of this accolade and one we hope we can maintain for many years to come. It may also come as a surprise to see that our wedding packages are affordable, competitive and cheaper than many other Ilkeston Weddding Photographers.
Martin is a member of the Guild of Photographers, an organisation held in high esteem, by many photographers. In recent years he has submitted images which have won awards for technical ability, composition and lighting. The images were wedding photographs taken at real weddings so you can be assured you will be getting excellent images from your day. Please also know that all the images on this site were taken at real weddings. All we ask is that you trust us and let us deliver the gorgeous photographs we know we can create.
We don’t like posing people, the most we do is ask couples to hold hands, look at each other, maybe have a kiss or ‘freeze’ a movement. We simply set the scene and see what happens. This was how we got the silhouette shot. For majority of the day we shoot a documentary or story telling style and these are great for those natural photographs you will see.
