Meet Ben & Elle (AKA Winnington + Coe)
So, this is the awkward part that everybody hates… Writing about yourself!
We are Elle and Ben. Birmingham (UK) based Photographer and Videographer, and we love a wedding.
We first got together at the age of 22 after being friends for many years. We have a gorgeous ‘larger than life’ girl called Luna, and a naughty Spaniel puppy called Archie.
Here is some useless but insightful information about us;
- Ben plays guitar for a UK punk band called ‘Max Raptor’. They aren't too bad. Check them out sometime.
- We enjoy watching Friends and Modern Family - anything that we don't have to think too hard about.
- Wine is our friend.
- Elle’s a pretty decent artist and wanted to be an illustrator at one point.
- We would like to travel with our little family and explore new places.
Having both come from creative backgrounds, and with an eye for fine detail and design; we decided to join forces and form a business in photography and moving images.
Becoming a wedding photographer and wedding videographer was never the plan; but as most creatives in the industry have found, we just fell into it; and then got the wedding bug!
Even though we are Midlands based, we travel all over the country to weddings; wherever we are needed. We’ve photographed and filmed weddings in London, Norfolk, Cotswolds, Leicester and Kent to just name a few locations. We would absolutely love to take our work abroad at some point, so if you’re planning a destination wedding, get in touch!
Being very chilled out people ourselves, we like couples who don’t take themselves to seriously, can have a good time and embrace their individuality and creative side. We so love seeing the little personal and creative touches our couples add to their wedding day!
The thing we adore about working in the wedding industry, is being constantly surrounded by people who are happy! We feel so blessed to be a part of such happy days in our couples lives, and we are hugely lucky to capture all the little moments which make up such a special day! We love to make energetic, colourful and expressive imagery to capture all those emotions and allow you to be taken back to your big day whenever you pick up your photos, or watch your video.
Archie the dog.
