This year I put myself forward for The North of England Wedding Awards.
'The North of England wedding Awards in association with The Wedding Guide UK are Yorkshire and North East England’s most prestigious awards for client service excellence. The Awards recognise those businesses which go the extra mile for their customers, providing outstanding service and inspiring their customers to want to actively and positively promote them.'

I honestly didn't think I'd get very far but thought it would be a good way to get feedback and see how my business is progressing.
I was amazed when I found out that I'd been shortlisted and was invited to their awards ceremony at York Racecourse. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend and also didn't win an award but I have been absolutely blown away by the feedback my lovely wedding couples left for me.
Here is a selection of their comments...
"Unbelievable day with a friendly photographer who put everyone at ease, listened to what we wanted and delivered. Everything we asked for, we got and had a laugh along the way. Great guy."
"We believe scott should win this award because he truly really listened to what we were looking for. He reflected the day atmosphere and emotions perfectly. Nothing was too much trouble. Even though he travelled a long way to be with us nothing was too much trouble. We walked to several locations for photos all turning out to be beautiful. Everyone commented on what a great bloke he was. We honestly believe he made our day better. We couldn't of asked for anything else. "
"Pictures were amazing very friendly he went above and beyond reasonable rates perfect."
"Professional good customer service..
Lovely guy to work with for all your wedding pictures. A credit to Scott.
It snowed the morning we got married, everything came to a standstill, even some of the roads were closed and airports.
Scott was there well before us and even transported all his equipment on the bus.. "
Thank you so so much, I hope I'm going in the right direction and growing as a photographer and you never know maybe next year I'll be a winner haha.
