English Wedding Awards

English Wedding Awards,
Wedding Photographer Of The Year 2018


Not one for self promoting, but for once I just thought I’d share some news. I was entered into a national award by a past client recently. The voting stages all took place on social media where votes and reviews were gathered by the organisers on their social media channels. This all took place without my input or knowledge.

After several weeks I was then contacted to be told I had made the final rounds. This was then judged, along with a body of supporting evidence I had to supply, testimonials, charity work…portfolio etc…by a panel of peers.

On the night of Wednesday 14th November 2018 the ceremony took place in Birmingham.

I was unaware of the results until late that night, as due to personal reasons, I could not attend. So in my absence I was awarded these amazing honours.

Alongside this amazing accolade are these few awards I have entered into, to be recognised by each of these organisations is truly amazing, and I can only thank all my couples for being so willing to enjoy their day in every way, for without them, there would be nothing to show.

This incredible scene was so natural, so breathless and so amazing to see. Jane and Ben had walked up a hill ahead of me in Much Wenlock, Shropshire. The day was just perfect for them, and this beautiful scene unfolded as if to make their day end as perfectly as it had been throughout.
