At the start of the year I made some resolutions, one being that if I was honoured to receive any awards from my 4 favourite bodies I would publish them here on my blog. In previous years I didn’t do a great job of showing off my achievements, it’s easy to get caught up in shooting/editing that by the time I remembered it felt like too much time had past and there was always a mountain of other more important things I could and should be doing instead.

I know how this is starting to look – and I have to say, I’m a little embarrassed by it. I’ve done extremely well with the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) this year. At the time of putting this article together (and during 2018 alone) I’ve been blessed to receive 8 Wedding awards and 3 Diamond awards (for pre-wedding engagement photos).

The thing that I find most staggering is that I’ve now won 4 Gold Medallion’s (photos selected by all four judges in the contest). It’s a huge achievement to get 1, but 4!!!

Check out my other wedding awards here:

  • V3, 2018 (1 Gold Medallion)
  • V5, 2018 (1 Gold & 1 Purple Medallion)
  • V6, 2018 (1 Blue Medallion)
  • V7, 2018 (1 Gold & 1 Purple Medallion)
  • And of course these 2 images making up V9, 2018

The first picture was taken from Xiao & Kaiyan’s wedding at the stunning Eastnor Castle in the Cotswolds, and the second from Jade & Chris big day at Dodford Manor in Northamptonshire. Both incredible weddings and both a pleasure and joy to be a part of.
