I didn’t blog about it at the time but having just read all the feedback that my awesome couples submitted to show their support of my entry I thought now would be a good time to shout “I AM A WEDDING INDUSTRY AWARD REGIONAL FINALIST FOR THE SECOND YEAR RUNNING!”
The Wedding Industry Awards recognise talented people throughout the industry and give them epic little trophies to take home when they do good. It’s a lovely pat on the back and one day I might win one!
Till then, it’s nice to be recognised as a finalist in a super competitive business and know that all of my couples were happy with what I dished up for their weddings.
The feedback you receive is pretty darn special but also serves as a means for improvement, except, ahem, none of my couples gave me anything to improve on so…I’ll just make myself a cuppa shall I?!
Seriously though, it’s very humbling and last year was especially tough. I have a lot I want to work on personally and I will continue to try and improve year on year, upping my game, delivering more and hopefully witnessing a shitload more smiles. This time my own. Here are a few of my favourite snippets of the lovely stuff people said…you read while I hide and be a bit shy.
“We absolutely love Lizzie’s style and creativity and she is one of the hardest working photographers I have met.’
“We were debating a videographer but couldn’t afford it with all of the other expenses of the wedding but her photos tell the story of our day completely and she captured every last little moment so she was all we needed!”
“Lizzie was an absolute dream. She was so friendly and immediately made everyone she met feel comfortable and valued.”
“We have had so many great comments regarding our photos, we had a first preview within 24 hours; what fantastic customer service.”
“10/10 for everything . Absolutely fantastic service, really professional and just a lovely lady in general ! She couldn’t do enough for us , and had great imagination when suggesting different ideas about where and how to do the photos.”
“We also loved having Lizzie there on our big day, it was awesome to have her around and she went above and beyond all day long for us. She’s worth every penny… in fact, she’s worth many many more!”
It goes on, and you can bet it made me cry. I’m so bloody lucky to be in a job I love and to work with people as ace as you. Thank you. xx
