Martin Ellard Wedding Photography, based in Swansea, South Wales, specialises in capturing natural and candid moments that tell stories of your day. For those couples that don't want to be posed, or have moments staged, my documentary approach gives you authentic images that will mean so much to you for decades to come.
My approach is simple, I arrive at morning preparations when some of the most touching and unique moments can happen. I'll chat with people and try to get them to relax around me and my camera, then for the rest of the day I'm more likely to blend into the background. When you have your first dance (if you're having one) it will be the start of an amazing night, and I'll be there capturing the epic Dad dancing and you both having the best night surrounded by your family and friends.

It ended up being a destination wedding and Martin was amazing from pre wedding planning, rearranging dates due to covid, to working with our planner on the day. Nothing was too much trouble for him. If you are looking for someone who’s more than just a photographer and takes the time and shows care and friendship Martin is your man!
Due to our wedding being aboard and starting later our finish time was obviously later and Martin stuck around for most of the night, Martin would say I’m going to make a move next minute he would be back on the dance floor capturing more fantastic moments, in the end I think he knew he had to call it quits otherwise he would of been leaving at the same time as us!
One of the best things about Martin and his style is that you tend to forget that he is there and almost blends in as one of your guests and that’s shows by the number of moments captures that your not aware of but when you are aware of him he makes it very easy for you to be comfortable in front of the camera.
We spent our full day laughing and Martin captured the day perfectly for us and we can’t recommend him enough.
Martin you were incredible and the photos speak for themselves.
