of The Year 2020
Oh Wow. This was an emotional one for me! Not only to be nominated in the section for Wedding Photographer of the Year at the Creative Oceanic Wedding awards, but to go ahead and win my Regional section AND the overall award for Northern Ireland.
I am SPEECHLESS! Thank you all so much, to everyone who took the time to vote for me to get nominated, to Creative Oceanic for hosting the most amazing night and for choosing my small business as the winner. I will forever be greatful.
For the second year in a row to win any kind of an award is so special but to be named as the best photographer in Northern Ireland is a feeling that I cannot begin to describe.
I started my business as a small hobby, not the best equipment or software but just a massive passion for photos, 5 years on I am still doing what I love but thanks to everyone who has booked, supported,
shared, liked or nominated me, I get to do this on a bigger scale and become SO IN LOVE with what I do! It means the world to me that I get to spend my work day surrounded by the most amazing brides and grooms, along with their families on their happiest day! It makes me feel very priviledged and I hope it continues for many more years to come!
Big shout out to my family, my friends and my William, who support me every day, the long hours, the hard work and the time spent away from them most weeks is hard. But I love you all for understanding I am doing what I love and I am the happiest I have ever been. I love you all for that support VERY much! I couldn't do this job without you.
So I will raise a glass to another successful year in business, to all my beautiful brides and grooms and to every single person who always supports me. THANK YOU isn't even enough to say to cover how grateful I am. <3

Wow. Where can I even start??
Even to be nominated in a category in the Creative Oceanic Northern Ireland Wedding Awards is an honour. Especially with such amazing nominees! To be publicly voted to be nominated in the creative photographer of the year award was just amazing, exciting and filled me full of pride! But then to go on and win?! WOW! #speechless!
I was not prepared to give a speech, but I will say this now.
To each and every single one of my past, present and future brides and grooms! Without you none of this would be possible, for taking a chance on me to create your wedding photos, for allowing me to be creative and for letting me be my unique, weird, eccentric self on your big day! I try to push myself with each wedding I do! And I think it is working!
A special mention to my very first bride and groom Deirdre and Michael, you guys had to take a giant leap of faith on me, with no previous wedding portfolio! You were the couple who helped me start this crazy adventure and for that I am forever grateful, you have given me my lifetime career to love!
To everyone who voted for me to be nominated, THANK YOU! It’s because of you I had a chance to win!! ❤️
To my family, mum, dad, brothers, sisters and Williams family, who support me throughout everything and stand by me and help me through the toughest of times (most of which you all don’t see but they do!) THANK YOU ALL!
And to my William. You pushed me to believe in myself when I was at my most broken, you pushed me to Persue what I love, you gave me the courage to take the leap and go for my dreams and you continue to stand by my every move. I love you more than you know. ❤️
