TWIA 2023 – Wedding Photographer of the Year Regional Finalist – Top 5 South Photographers

We were thrilled to have been nominated for The Wedding Industry Awards 2023 for the work we produced and the couples we supported in 2022. It was an unusual year with double the number of weddings due to Covid. Many couples had to rearrange their weddings multiple times, and it was heartwarming to finally see them married after years of knowing them from booking to their actual day.

One of our lockdown couples, limited to only 12 guests at their wedding, nominated us first, which brought this special accolade to our attention. It was a delightful surprise for us.

We sent a link to all our 2022 couples and those who had received their albums by the end of 2021, and eagerly waited for their response. Our clients are truly the best, as everyone completed the nomination. While we received confirmation that nominations had been cast, we were left in suspense about what had been said.

Finding out we were Wedding Photographer of the Year Regional Finalist in September 2022

We were thrilled to have found out that we were in the top 5 photographers that had got through to that final round. The links came out on email and I clicked on the link, went to photographers and put my phone on record. Steve was on a shoot and wasn’t going to be back for a few hours so wanted to make a video to show him my authentic reaction! I hid part of the screen with my hand and slowly scrolled through the names. Nope, nope, nope, not us, ah well, OH MY GOD!!!!! We were listed at the end of the finalist winners and couldn’t have been more happy. I was bouncing off the walls for hours and just couldn’t wait for the next steps.

Awards night in November 2022

Awards night was at Old Thorns Hotel in Liphook and had a blast with fellow suppliers. It was such a lovely evening to meet and celebrate with the businesses that we do life with most weekends! The atmosphere was electric and we took our seats. Sadly we weren’t crowned winners, but we are ok with that. To be nominated as top 5 photographers in the South central region is good enough for us, especially as to how many photographers there are!  Our Wedding Photographer of the Year Regional Finalist certificate is hanging proudly in the office for all our visitors to see!
