Elliot Nichol

"My goal on your wedding day is to never have the day revolving around the photography but rather the photography to revolve around your day."

I've always had a creative eye, even as a small boy, constantly painting, drawing and taking pictures. After school I went straight on to Art School and studied Graphic Design. I completed the 2 year course and then decided (much to my father’s frustration) I didn't want to pursue that particular artistic path. Instead I decided to study Photography because this subject was touched on during my design course. I enrolled on a part-time A level photography course and this is where I really fell in love with it.

After my exams I was accepted from a vast selection of candidates to study photography at Newcastle School of Art & Design where I studied full time for 2 years and finally graduated with a Higher National Diploma in Photography. It was there I received my first award from the NEPA (Northeast Press Awards) for best student photography. My photographic career continued shortly afterwards as a Trainee Press Photographer and over the years moved up to Senior Photographer within the Trinity Mirror group at the Newcastle Evening Chronicle.

A large proportion of my career has been working as a Newspaper Photojournalist for regional and national newspapers in the UK. I have gained over 20 years experience within the photographic industry and for some years now specialising as a full time Wedding Photographer. It was always going to be a natural progression for me to approach weddings creatively and in the same way as all my press experience has taught me, with storytelling.

I travel Europe photographing destination weddings whilst mixing my love of travel with my passion for wedding photography. By naturally capturing the joy, happiness, fun, humour, emotion, and detail of your day as they happen; I aim to create memories that you will cherish.

"I find my way of covering a wedding in a candid, documentary style - quietly capturing the real moments as they happen for the bride and groom, using images to tell the story of the wedding day enables me to see more of a natural, relaxed view of the relationships between family and friends, capturing all the personality of your big day."

We couldn't have been happier with our choice of photographer, you would have thought you were one of the guests the rappore you had with them was great. There are some amazing photos that capture our day so well & the slideshow definitely brought a tear to both our eyes! It takes us both back to the day. Our friends and family are really impressed with our different photos. Guests kept commenting after how great you were on the day and how amazing the photos are, the slideshow didn't just have us in tears! We thank you for your hard work in getting the memory heart to us before we left Malta, we appreciate you working on your birthday and the days after it. We hope you had a delayed celebration. We couldn't have wished for a nicer, more friendly photographer our daughter was definitely comfortable around you which helped. Anyone asking us if we know a good wedding photographer will most certainly be given your card, and directed to our Facebook page to check out your excellent work.

Thanks Elliot! I am just putting finishing touches to the album I bought to present the wonderful pictures of our special day. The more I look at them (which is still quite often!) the more in love with them I am- you captured the whole day so beautifully, thank you for your creativity, artistic eye and patience with my willing but ever so slightly uncomfortable hubby! If anyone ever asks for references on your work I will happily sing your praises!

We cannot thank you enough, your style of photography is unique and contemporary- which we love and all of our guests commented on how relaxed our special day was... that was partly down to you, you fitted in just as though you were one of our guests and captured everyone and our day absolutely perfectly without any traditional poses or forced smiles! Everyone who has seen our pictures and slideshow has been blown away by them, your talent and creativity is phenomenal as well as your ability to engage with everyone and keep them relaxed. We are so proud of our pictures and will cherish them, and the memories attached to them forever!

Elliot, what else can we say but a massive thank you. We picked you because we liked your laid back story telling approach but we never dreamt you'd be able to capture the story of our day and the people in it so brilliantly. You managed in only a few hours of knowing us to capture all the personalities of our guests perfectly as well as the joy and love that was in the air. You were so easy to chat to and we hardly noticed you snapping away all day. Everyone thought you were superb. Your photo's are not only creative but beautifully produced and were miraculously delivered to us just days after. Our wedding has been immortalised in these images and they're everything we wanted them to be and more. We're glad you were part of our special day and wish you all the best for the future - we know you'll smash it!. Superstar!!!

Elliot - real thanks for being so professional on the day and capturing the essence of our wedding. The results have been universally acclaimed. We were very keen to avoid old-fashioned static photos and you listened to our views in advance, suggested a reportage style which then matched our ideas perfectly. I can wholeheartedly recommend Elliot to any couple getting married in the UK or on the continent

We've seen the photos, absolutely delighted with them Elliot. My cousin is getting married in 2015 and will definitely recommend you. We both had a tear in our eye and a smile on our face while watching the slideshow. Thank you for capturing our special day in a special way.

Elliot what can I say except the pictures are fantastic, they have captured every emotion of the day. I love the fact that you captured the picture without them being staged and that the natural happiness of the day shone through. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs a photographer for that special occasion. Thank you again x
