Based in Oxford, Oxfordshire and South Devon Matthew Ellacott Photography specialises in natural, authentic photography. Matt is not simply a photographer, but is a story teller dedicated to capturing the essence of your wedding day for you.

Matt thrives on capturing the joy of your celebration. His collections are focussed on the people and moments, that you will love to look back on, complemented with a few special signature portraits. Matt has a warm, relaxed approach and unobtrusive style, ensuring your moments remain authentic, and unscripted.

Excellent experience

We had a great time with Matthew as our photographer. He was very communicative, but relaxed and flexible. Excellent service with a pre-wedding shoot which helped for two people not used to being photographed feel more comfortable. Wonderful on the day, ever present but not intrusive, and had a general love for his craft.

100% recommended

Matt was really wonderful on my wedding day, I wouldn't have wanted anyone else there. When I got nerves before the service he distracted me by suggesting we do a photoshoot whilst we wait for the car. He was professional and kind - gave us just enough direction and let the day flow without halting the flow for too many photos. He also took the time to come to our wedding rehearsal to meet the priest and see where he could take pictures from - that really was above and beyond and not expected at all. He also was very good with my camera- fascinated baby cousin who was obsessed with him (photo submitted as evidence). 100% I would recommend you book Matt for your wedding - He showed me a few of the photos on his camera and they look stunning, I can't wait to see the rest!! Thank you so much Matt !!!
