Eleanor Joy


Hello there, I’m Eleanor, a creative photographer, designer and lover of life. I find inspiration from the people I meet, the places I’m in and the worlds I find within books.

I haven’t always been a photographer. Once upon a time, I was a little baby: born to a vicar and a french teacher. When I became a child, I developed my love for people and an admiration for human interaction. When I became an adolescent, I was given my first camera and that is when I’d say I became a photographer.

The camera came everywhere with me: throughout Europe, Australia and Africa. It was by my side at school, sixth-form and university (BA Graphic Communication, Bath Spa). I even considered bringing it to my own wedding but I needed my hands to put a ring on my husband’s finger.

I’ve now been photographing weddings since 2013 and it’s part of who I am. It draws together all things I love in life and it thrills me to know the images I take will be passed on for generations to come.

University taught me how to use the images I take to create book covers, illustrations and publications. Now, I use that knowledge to create bespoke beautiful wedding albums.

So now you’ve heard about my journey, I can’t wait to be part of yours on your big day.

– if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask!

"We are so happy we asked Eleanor to be our wedding photographer. She was professional, thoughtful and creative from the very first meeting and has gone above and beyond for us. We love our wedding photos; they really capture the joyfulness and fun of the day, and all the special moments that we might have missed. We cannot recommend Eleanor enough! She is wonderful!"

"We absolutely love the photos and all our friends and family to whom we have shown them to have raved about them, so a massive thank you!! I really like how they are all natural shots and have caught people and the atmosphere really well. Rory and I really love our couple shots too – they are beautiful. We couldn’t be happier."

"Eleanor was the perfect photographer - most of the time we didn't even know she was there, yet she has taken absolutely beautiful pictures that really capture the moment. Her style is lovely - very natural and elegant, but casual at the same time. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat - I just need more of my friends to get married."

"Eleanor has a gift of taking candid, creative and natural shots, which we wanted and loved, so thank you Eleanor for the wonderful job. It's very easy to be around Eleanor as her presence is not imposing at all and we didn't even realise our photos were taken. We are delighted you were our photographer and I'm still looking at the photos again and again!"
