Full Description
Think of me as your extra guest. With a documentary style and a love for natural light, my approach is to be unobtrusive and photograph your day as it unfolds. Capturing your personalities exactly as they are and the things you love. I am so passionate about photographing the beautiful and precious memories that can often be missed. But the ones you can look back on and say “look at the amazing time we had!” From happy tears at the ceremony, the group photos of all your loved ones together with genuine smiles, laughter during speeches to everyone busting their moves on the dancefloor at the reception! I always tell my couples that my job as your photographer is to capture all the things that are important to YOU. And I truly believe that. Your day goes by so quickly, that wedding photography is about telling your love story. Seeing what your wedding is all about and capturing the chemistry and love you share. I think it’s important for you to be able to sneak off for time alone together for some private shots. And to actually take a moment to let it sink in that you just got married! I also never like to restrict the amount of photos you get. As a photographer, I (obviously) love photos and would hate to not get all of them. So, whatever I use or keep is what you will receive.

Absolutely fantastic
Ellen met with us several times before our big day to discuss our requirements and to make the arrangements. On the day, Ellen was discreet, professional and always right where we needed her! Nothing was too much trouble and she took some really nice, natural pictures which was exactly what we wanted. The quality of our album is great and we totally happy with the service we received. We highly recommend Ellen!

We love every single picture captured!
We are so happy we chose you to capture our special wedding day, great service from start to finish. Any photo ideas we had were met perfectly and nothing was too much effort. You went above and beyond to capture everything on our special day and we love every single picture captured. Especially adding our dog Clio who passed away to one of our photos. That extra special touch was lovely and means a great deal to us. Great advice given on creating the best pictures and always contactable. Would highly recommend Ellen Forster Photography to anyone wanting to capture special moments in their lives. We can't thank you enough!

Ellen managed to achieve this effortlessly
Ellen took photos at our wedding in 2015, she was amazing. She made everyone feel at ease. We wanted just natural shots and a few group photos. Ellen managed to achieve this effortlessly, we got some truly beautiful and natural shots. I would highly recommend Ellen to anybody.

"Blink and you miss it" moments
As someone who really doesn't like having my photo taken, I have to praise Ellen for making me feel so comfortable. I asked Ellen to photography my wedding last March and I could not be happier with not only the finished photo's, but the service I received throughout. Nothing was too big of an ask for her, and she was always happy to answer any questions I had. Ellen is a very talented photographer who was able to capture some lovely "blink and you miss it" moments from my wedding day. Once again, thank you for your hard work.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Light, natural, relaxed, candid, and passionate about capturing you and your relationship exactly as it is.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Your day goes by so quickly, that your dream wedding should be whatever you want it to be! Not what everybody else wants, so have fun planning it!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Personalised photo cufflinks and bouquet charms, of loved ones that sadly could not be there on the day. It was such a beautiful personal touch and I'm sure quite comforting having them there on the day in some way.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

There's so many to choose from! I think confetti shots are always brilliant to capture, seeing such happiness and fun from the couple as well as family and friends throwing confetti. And who doesn't love the first kiss shot?

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Keep smiling, it's more opportunities for different photos!
