About Matt

Matthew Ellacott - Oxford Wedding Photographer

I am originally from London and my family roots are in Devon.  I currently live in the beautiful city of Oxford.

When I am not behind a camera, I am a Lindy Hop dance addict, and adore Swing Music and old movies. I help run Oxford Lindy Hoppers and have been creating and producing dance festivals in Oxford since 2014.  I am also a trustee of the Plymouth Argyle Heritage Archive.

Travel is another huge passion of mine, and I have been fortunate enough to visit some wonderful destinations with my camera always in hand. The Art Deco splendour of New York City is my favourite destination.  I am lucky to share these passions with my beautiful wife Eleanor.  


I love everything about photography and got my first camera at 6 years old. I use my camera every day and when not photographing weddings, I also do portrait photography, vintage photoshoots, event photography, and Oxford graduation photography.  I enjoy a creative challenge and trying different projects and styles.  I have photographed many dance events and festivals in the UK and Europe.
