"I spent weeks searching for a photographer for our wedding... I wanted a 'fly-on-the-wall' style of photographer, who could capture the essence of the day with zero cringe and unnecessary posing shots. Turns out, it's hard to find a good one. Then one day, I stumbled upon Ella's page. I was immediately drawn to her style of photography, so I dropped her an email. That email was the best decision of the whole wedding process. The sweetest lady replied and from our first meeting I knew we were booking her. The day arrived and it feels like we barely saw Ella, yet we have 600+ photos of the day! We gave her a list of the group shots we wanted and they were all done quickly and efficiently. For the rest of the day she just seemed to blend in with the guests (our guests have referred to her as the 'ninja photographer'!) and as a result the pictures are amazing. The slideshow to the music of the day that she made us reduced me to a blubbering mess. She has captured everything. Every look, every expression, every funny moment. We have photos that we will treasure forever and we can't ever thank Ella enough. So.... basically, what I'm saying is.... if you're getting married, or know someone who is, you can stop searching. Email Ella and it'll be the best decision of your whole wedding."

Not only did Ella blow us away with our wedding photographs but she did it all over again with our daughters new born shoot.
She and Donna welcomed us into her home studio where they made us feel so welcome and at ease. Ella was so good with Skyla, so gentle and calm it was just lovely. She even calmed her back to sleep when Mummy & Daddy couldn’t settle her. We were very much still trying to get into the swing of things at 2 weeks but they were so understanding and we weren’t rushed in the slightest.
We couldn’t be happier with the finished pictures of our little lady, we are over the moon 13with them and will certainly treasure them forever ♡
I also want to thank Ella for helping my Husband put together a wedding album as a surprise for my 30th birthday. It is so perfect and I really appreciate the time she put in helping him put it all together - it meant the world when he presented me with it and it couldn’t of been more perfect ♡
We will always go back to Ella to capture our memories. She is so talented and one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet! Thanks again Ella & Donna! Love Sarah, Matt & Baby Skyla xxx
"Ella and Donna were the best wedding photographers we could have asked for.
Our photos at our home, tortworth church and Drakestone House were just incredible. Such lovely people, calming and were just comfortably in the background throughout our perfect day.
They really are story tellers in their photos and we have been so excited to show our family and friends the photos.
They really are perfect and we couldn’t of asked for anything better.
Ella was easy to book and always available to ask questions and I loved our pre wedding meetings with her.
They stayed longer than what we had booked, to capture our band and were just 110% amazing!!
I would highly recommend Ella and Donna as your photographers. They really did such an amazing job and I can’t wait to continue sharing them. Thank you so much!"

"Ella Parkinson and her gorgeous mummy, Donna, photographed our wedding in December, and my husband and I were so so happy that they played the part they did in our special day!
Our wedding photography was so important to us and so it is was imperative we chose a photographer whose style we loved!!! Ella was recommended to us by a friend of ours, who had the pleasure of her photographing her wedding and once we saw her website, we knew she was the photographer for us!
From our first contact with Ella, right through to our Wedding Day, we were blown away by her excellent professionalism, communication and attention to detail in all aspects of the preparation.
On the day, Ella and Donna were so lovely to have around and so easy to be with. There was no pressure from either photographer at any time and despite this, she still managed to take the most perfect pictures of our magical day!
We cannot thank Ella and Donna enough for the amazing work they did for us and the fact that we can now relive our magical day over and over again in the most beautiful way possible! Simply wonderful!"

Ella photographed our wedding on 16/3/19 at Lemore Manor and I can honestly say we were absolutely overwhelmed when we saw the photos a few weeks later. Her and her mum captured the spirit of the day so beautifully and we have gorgeous photos to treasure forever. Would highly recommend Ella if you want someone to blend into your wedding party and get the balance just right in terms of natural and planned photographs. Thank you so much Ella xxx
Ella is an incredible photographer. She photographed our beautiful wedding where she and her mum, Donna, made every single guest feel at ease in front of the camera and captured moments that really told the story of our special day. A short 9 months later our little girl arrived and Ella took the most stunning photos of our precious newborn. She was patient with us, as first time parents we were anxious about wasting her time as our daughter didn't always cooperate, but she put us at ease and made us feel so comfortable in her presence. Thank you for the most incredible professional photos, we will treasure every single one forever!!
