Wedding Photographer

Eleanor Joy

Hello there, I’m Eleanor, a creative wedding 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 wedding 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’ve now been photographing weddings since 2013 (which is when I graduated University) 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.


My love for wedding photography…

My love for wedding photography is sustained through everyone and everything that inspires me. My passion for story telling and creativity rolls into a desire to make beautiful colourful images that will last the generations.

I’d like to be remembered as someone who made the world a little bit brighter. I like bringing joy to others and on your wedding day I will help you in every possible way to achieve your perfect images.


I do have other loves in my life apart from being a wedding photographer...

I have a husband called Michael who is an absolute star. He’s helped me in a lot of ways and I hope we continue helping each other for the rest of our lives. Michael is very tall and likes to play golf, he watches a lot of football and eats a lot of pizza. 

There is also Summer, our dog. She keeps me company when I’m not at weddings and follows me everywhere. She makes me laugh on a daily basis and has a tremendous personality.

My friends and family are a massive part of me and I’m ever so grateful for all the things we do for one another. My sisters and brother have definitely had a big impact on who I am and it’s great to be surrounded by kind, inspiring people who care about others.

Other hedonistic things I like- food, alcohol, travelling, reading, exercise, music and clothes.

Some Personal Photographic Adventures...

  • Eleanor is warm, professional and a hugely talented photographer. You are in very capable hands if you choose Eleanor as your wedding photographer. So many of our guests commented on how friendly and professional Eleanor was, but also how she just 'blended' into the day, taking wonderful natural shots. Eleanor ensured all our guests featured in our photos and she was so flexible with timings for couple and group photographs. Every time we look at our wedding shots we feel as if we were back there and are just so so pleased we chose Eleanor. We highly recommend you do the same!

  • Eleanor's an absolute gem! From the very first email and meeting to the delivery of our wedding photos, she had a lovely, sunny demeanour the whole way through. Her patience and professionalism shown through during the process of corralling my rather large and boisterous family for group shots. She also seems to be everywhere to get the perfect shot, yet you never notice her presence until she's already moving on to the next. The photos she delivers clearly show her incredibly talent with the camera, and we are so thrilled with all the moments from the day that she captured so beautifully. We'll certainly return to Eleanor in the future the next time we need photos of this caliber.

  • Eleanor was so amazing as our wedding photographer, she met me at the venue before to understand where photos would be taken and the surroundings. She took the most beautiful natural shots and made everyone feel at ease. All the guests said they were amazing and commented on this too

  • Eleanor was amazing before the wedding keeping in touch and making sure she got all the info needed to make sure we got the photos we wanted. She was incredible on the day too, so professional and friendly. She blended in so well so no one felt uncomfortable having their photos taken. It was truly a pleasure having her at our wedding. Even after the wedding she was brilliant, emailing me letting me know when my photos would be ready. And my goodness, the photographs are everything and so much more than I wanted. Can't even put in to words how overjoyed we are with them. Literally cannot fault Eleanor, would 100% recommend to everyone!!!  Looking through the photos Eleanor took I relive the day all over again, she really captured the emotions. Love her and her work!!!

  • From start to finish I can’t fault Eleanor. We found her after our scheduled photographer pulled out, luckily for us! Eleanor was great at explaining what we might need for our big day and all the pre wedding communication from her was faultless. On the day itself she blended into the morning preparations and moved around the guests at the venue and during the ceremony capturing some truely gorgeous pictures. An added personal touch was a lovely Christmas card from her as well. I cannot recommend her highly enough and most importantly the photographs she took were way over my expectations, she somehow made us look like works of art!!

  • Eleanor is a photographic GENIUS. My husband and I hate being photographed, but Eleanor totally put us at ease during our engagement shoot and during the actual wedding - she took beautiful photos that we absolutely love, and she was really fun to have with us on the day! She was really calm, totally organised, and totally understood how we wanted the day to feel and look. She managed to capture so much of the day, even the bits we had no idea were happening! If you are looking for a wedding photographer, just get in touch with Eleanor, she is amazing. We will absolutely treasure these photos, so thank you SO MUCH Eleanor!!
