New Year, New Award Wins!

New Year, New Award Wins!


Well, there haven’t been too many weddings to shoot recently, so I have had the opportunity to enter some photographs from weddings I have already captured into some different awards. I entered Fearless for the first time ever, and given the standard of Fearless award winners, I was surprised and thrilled to pick up an award at the first attempt! If you have’t heard of Fearless Photographers, where have you been?! Lol, only joking. Fearless is an international organisation that celebrates the best wedding photography in the world. They have four rounds of awards each year with thousands of entries. In this round, there were almost 15,000 photos submitted, and only about 250 were chosen for awards, so only the top 1.7% were chosen as award winners. So you can understand my happy face 🙂

This is the photo that picked up the Fearless award. It was a funny moment from Charlie and Aimee’s wedding when one of Charlie’s nephews, who were both page boys, got overexcited and dragged his younger brother up the aisle so quickly that he couldn’t keep up and tripped up.




I also entered into the Masters of Wedding Photography awards, and in two rounds of extremely high quality, I was chuffed to emerge with four different awards.


This image was from an Indian wedding in London, and this was taking during the baraat, the groom’s entrance ceremony. The bus wasn’t part of the ceremony, it just happened to be going past and I got lucky that the colours of the Ribena ad on the bus matched up to the colours of the smoke grenades!


This image was taken at a wedding during lockdown outside a synagogue. This little girl was running around and I spotted the white man on the floor, so waited for her to look towards it and ‘snap’!


This was taken at the Andaz Hotel, by Liverpool St Station in London, at Brian and Mohan’s wedding. They are reflected in a fantastic selection of mirrors on the wall of the hotel lobby area.


This image was taken at the same Indian wedding as the bus image above. It was during the Vidai, which is when the bride and groom leave the ceremony after it finishes, and the bride says her goodbyes to her family and friends. Sometimes these are very happy moments, and other times they are emotional like this one!


And finally, I also picked up another Ninedots award for this image from Charlotte and Alistair’s wedding which we created at the end of the night in front of the grand facade of the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London.

The frontage of the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel has got to be one of the most beautiful of all in London. I love the neo-gothic architecture. Perfect for a nighttime silhouette.
