Picture the scene…I’d had the worst night sleep due to a 4 year old that has decided he only needs four hours of napping a night and I had run out of milk and needed my Frosties & coffee. I wasn’t the happiest of bunnies however, I got me an email didn’t I. The subject read “Congratulations on winning the 16th Wedisson Award” and I knew straight away, I had won the 16th Wedisson Award 🙂
My frown was turned upside down and to top it all off, there was milk in the door of the fridge (always forget to look there).
Wedisson Awards are an International award and less than 5% of images submitted win. The standard is very high and some of the winners are truly creative and inspiring. That makes it even more special that this is now my second. That pretty much makes me a multi-award winning Midlands Wedding Photographer. Actually, scrap that, it makes me a multi-International award winning wedding Photographer. Obviously I’ve asked everyone to address me as such, but only my mum seems willing 🙂
So now for my acceptance speech: I would like to thank my Mum, Dad, Wife, Children …..(three hours later)….my dog, the cast of Game of Thrones, the Pet Shop Boys and finally Dave. In all seriousness, I was honoured to win and the biggest thank you goes to Charlie & Alex for letting me drag them out in the rain and take an epic picture for them.
Here’s the winning image…
