4 new awards from the Wedding Photojournalist Association

It’s always a huge honour to receive an award, and despite picking up a fair few titles in the wedding industry, it’s a buzz that I still enjoy. Winning awards is validation that I’m on the right track, and it’s recognition for the hard work, calculated risks and ‘thinking outside of the box’ that I take at every wedding.

Despite everything I just said above, I also feel a little pull to ease off on awards from time to time. Last year I reached No.1 in the UK with the WPJA and it left me thinking; “what now!?”. So throughout 2019, I’ve entered a little less but continued to work a little harder. I’ve been more selective about the work I publish (which is probably the reason I’ve not blogged much this year) and I’ve only released images which give me that extra special zing and pop in my soul.

Just check out these 4 pictures I won in the latest round of the WPJA.

  1. The first was taken at Northbrook Park,Surrey during an outdoor Hindu/fusion wedding. Yes, that’s ducks crossing the aisle! Unscripted of course, not that I speak duck anyway.
  2. The second is from Ashridge House,Hertfordshire. This is a very special picture because of the hard work it took to achieve it. Not only is it technically tricky because of the off-camera flashes, but I’m also sat on-top of a burly wedding guest who was only too keen to help me get the perfect height for this incredible cutting the cake picture.
  3. The third is from South Farm, Royston. This epic confetti picture was taken on Georgina & Peter’s big day in one of the most gorgeous wedding location in the UK. I LOVE Peter’s expression in this picture! It’s true what they say, a picture does paint a thousand words.
  4. And last but by no means least is this incredible champagne tower pouring, taken at Chateau de Miserai, France. It was one of the highlights of my 2019 working in Normandy and I’m so blessed to receive this award. it’s a wedding I’ll remember for the rest of my life.

I’ve never won 2 Gold Medallions in the same round so this is a first for me. Combined with the 2 Blue Medallions It’s the ‘best’ round I’ve ever had in the WPJA which is incredible.

Thanks to the judges for their tireless dedication and professionalism and congratulations to the other winners in this outstanding round.
