Regional Finalist at The Wedding Industry Awards


Wedding Industry Awards regional Finalist!!!

I don’t generally chase awards as I find them very subjective and sometimes even just a case of if you can badger enough people on Facebook to vote for you even if they’ve never used you as a photographer before… however The Wedding Industry Awards is a much better and fairer system as they use ratings from real wedding clients over the last year to judge you and decide if you are worthy of making the regional finals, and then if you’re lucky / an incredible photographer you win and go through to the national finals.

I am very lucky to have amazing couples who voted for me in large numbers and because of them I am delighted to say I made it to the North East and Yorkshire regional finals, I didn’t win but just to get there and my name be sat alongside some of the best in the country was a very humbling and brilliant experience.  When I say I didn’t win, well I may not have won the award but when you have all your couples voting a near 10 out of 10 for you in every aspect of your business you feel like a winner, and extremely blessed at the same time.  I wish I could post every review my couples gave me but it would take about 10 blog posts, maybe more, so instead here are the average ratings they gave me and a few snippets of what they said:


Scores are an average rating out of 10

– Quality of expertise, advice and guidance received from your photographer – 10

– Ability of your photographer to understand, interpret and realise your vision and ideas – 9.95

– Quality of customer service and communication received from your photographer – 10

– Your photographer’s personal presentation and their ability to understand and fit into your wedding – 10

– Quality of your photographer’s web presence (web site, facebook etc). – 10

– Coverage, delivery and quality of the finished photographs etc (including online and ‘real’ albums etc) – 10

– Value for money – 10


A few snippets from their feedback

“I cannot fault Andy – our wedding guests adored him, we adored him and everything was professional, but laid back. He made us so comfortable, he was more like a friend than a photographer!”

“I wish I could give Andy 11 out of 10 as he really is something special. He made everything so easy for us and always had a smile on his face. His images are amazing quality and he captures the day so perfectly bringing us lots of happy tears and a day we will never forget.


“We could not have been happier with the service he provided for us on our wedding day and the photographs he produced are amazing, capturing our day to create memories we will cherish.”


“His style matched what we were looking for and we felt comfortable throughout the day for both his unposed and posed shots. Many of my guests commented on how he worked on the day and enjoyed meeting him.


“Perfect service from start to finish – catered for out specific needs and fear of being photographed! Andy was a great addition to our wedding and captured the bay perfectly with minimal interference as we wanted!


“There are very few photographers that will stand in torrential rain and lie on the ground to get the perfect shot, luckily for us Andy did! He persevered through the great British weather for our whole day. Very professional and non intrusive”


“Andy was fantastic to work with through the whole process from start to finish. From initial consultation through to delivering of the images. He has great personality and worked brilliantly with everyone on the day.”


“His style is one of a kind and his ability to turn such simple backgrounds into stunning photos genuinely amazes me. Having photos taken was the part  I was dreading the most but Andy made me feel relaxed and it actually turned into one of my favourites parts of the day.


“Andy was great to work with. Very professional, catered for all of our requests. We would definitely recommend him to our family and friends!


“Andy is such a warm, friendly and very funny guy. We got on incredibly well and he fitted in like one of the gang. I was inundated with comments of how lovely he was on the day, and I’m now inundated with comments of how amazing the photos are.
