Mark and I were stunned and honoured to be announced on Monday night as the 2009 winner of the Photography Category of the VOWS Awards which recognises outstanding service in the wedding industry. We would like to wholeheartedly thank our clients for voting for us and for making this happen. We are lucky to book such lovely people as customers!
Monday night’s VOWS gala dinner was a glittering affair with superb entertainment by way of the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, Singing Waiters and comedienne Craig Hill. We literally nearly fell off our chairs when our names were announced as the winners.
The VOWS Awards are independently run and are funded by sponsorship from a range of prestigious companies (www.vowsawards.co.uk). The aim of the VOWS Awards is to inform couples planning their wedding of the companies offering the best in service in the industry. One lucky couple who voted for their favourite suppliers also won a second honeymoon courtesy of Sandals. Unfortunately, it wasn’t one of our clients whose name was drawn this time.
We have been receiving lovely messages of congratulations from our clients since our win was announced. Here are but a few:
“Congratulations to you both, It really couldn’t have happened to two nicer people. It is well deserved and shows the amount of hard work and dedication to what you do is paying of in dividends. Well done and keep up the good work. Speak to you both soon.”

“That is fantastic news Donna, very well done and very well deserved. I still have people complimenting me on our wedding photos and how natural they are. Great news – I’m delighted for you both.“
