South West Wedding Awards 2018

I

 have never been a photographer to enter awards however last year I came to the South West wedding awards website and decided to enter. To my surprise, I got through as a finalist in the Bespoke Photography category. I was over the moon just to make it through as a finalist and with only a week left for my clients to vote I quickly sent emails to my 2016/ 2017 brides and grooms to ask for there support by voting.

On Friday 19th January Dan (my husband) and I traveled down to Plymouth to attend the awards evening. I was very much looking forward to a three-course dinner, some good music and a date night with my hubby. The competition in my category was very strong and as the awards ceremony got underway and my category was announced I sat listening contently that in this category the contest had been so close they were going to offer a Highly Commended award. Literally, when my name was announced I was shocked and as I went to collect my award I felt so proud that my clients had got behind me and voted especially given the short notice of entering, planning such amazing weddings and choosing me to photograph their day. Your continued support means so much and I am so grateful to have had such super clients, you all rock!

I have recently received the comments my clients submitted in support of Kelly Weech Photography and I was so humbled and touched by your kind words I wanted to share them with you. I truly feel like a winner in my client’s eyes.

Congratulations to all the other winners and finalists.

What my clients said about me, supplied directly to SWWA 

“We’re so so happy that we chose Kelly as our wedding photographer. She is hugely creative, unintrusive, and even helped with jobs outside of her remit on the big day. She put us at ease as soon as we met her, and we knew we were in good hands. Extremely capable and massively talented, Kelly helped make our wedding special, and we’ll be forever grateful to her. She has a fantastic eye for detail and stood out from other photographers that we’d met. Kelly is amazing, and truly deserves to receive an award!”

 

“Kelly was amazing she is so organised and personal, she made the day run smoothly and made us feel totally at ease. Some of her shots are so unusual and just perfect. Her advice before during and after the wedding was second to none. We really couldn’t have asked for more.”

 

“I searched high and low for a photographer that was going to give me a story when I looked at my photos and I can say hand on heart Kelly is by far the most talented lady I ever come across, her photos captured our day perfectly and when I look at my photos it’s like living my fairy tale all over again.I can’t thank Kelly enough not only did she capture our day she was like my wing woman, she was helping with all sorts on the day and really got involved to make it special for us.I’m not the most confident of people and find photos a bit awkward but Kelly made me feel so comfortable and I’m so grateful to her for our beautiful photos.”

 

“Kelly was absolutely fantastic, we couldn’t have asked for a more friendly, professional and approachable photographer. We had so many compliments from our guests on how wonderful Kelly and her colleague were; they captured so many beautiful candid and staged shots of our wedding, and yet never felt intrusive. The photos speak for themselves in terms of artistry, creativity and an eye for the perfect shot – they really tell the story of our day and we couldn’t be more thrilled with them. They arrived amazingly quickly after our wedding (less than three weeks) and it was and still is a joy to look at them.”

 

“Kelly was amazing! So down to earth, captured everything we wanted and really worked hard to fulfill what we wanted. People even commented that they didn’t feel the presence of a photographer as she fit in so well.”

 

“When we started planning our wedding at the start of 2016, the top of our list of priorities was our venue and photographer When I was looking on Instagram and Facebook at our venue, I came across Kelly as she had done some weddings at the venue before, I instantly loved her style of photography. I messaged Kelly and she very promptly replied and we arranged a meeting. From the moment I met Kelly we just clicked and I knew we had to book her as our photographer.I felt like I was walking around with my best friend on our wedding day as Kelly made me feel so at ease and was so friendly.A few days after our wedding we received a few sneak peeks and we were completely blown away, they made us even more excited to receive all of our photos. Three weeks after the wedding we received our wedding photos, wow is all I can say. Through pictures Kelly told the story of our day and we will treasure our photos for the rest of our lives. We highly recommend Kelly as she’s friendly, passionate, creative, great value for money and most importantly she takes the most amazing photos that tell the story of the most important day in your life. Our brief was surpassed, and we have had many comments made about how fantastic our wedding photos are. Good luck Kelly, you totally deserve this award and to be recognised for your amazing work.”

 

“Kelly is fantastic. Having her at our wedding was lovely, it was like having a good friend there who happened to be taking our pictures! As for the photos themselves, they were stunning and I can’t fault anything! My husband is one harsh critic and he’s only said good things – which is a massive statement of what a great job Kelly did.”

 

“Kelly, and the second photographer were both amazing, very professional, but felt like they were both good friends as part of our wedding party.The photos were very innovative, quirky, romantic, and captured all the bits of our special day that we didn’t get to see.I would highly recommend Kelly, she really is a deserved winner, fingers crossed for you Kelly.”

 

“Kelly was amazing, a lot of my friends commented on how brilliant she was at directing people for photos but at the same time blending in with guests so you didn’t know she was there taking all the natural photos. Kelly’s professionalism and personality make her the perfect wedding photographer.”

 

“Kelly’s confidence and energy was so uplifting as part of a wonderful, overwhelming day. Her manner was relaxed and friendly and I felt immediately at ease with her and assured that she had done her research and knew exactly what she was doing. She was excited to try new ideas as well as incorporate more traditional shots and had really paid attention to us and what we had asked for. We have had excellent feedback from family and bridesmaids who spent time with her and I think this is all reflected in the photographs, which are simply stunning.”

 

“Kelly was absolutely amazing from start to finished. I had always looked at her work and wished for her to be our photographer so when the time came for us to organise our wedding she was the first person I contacted. No other photographer compared, her light and natural photos are simply stunning. Kelly even managed to get my partner (a very nervous and camera shy person) to pose for the camera and catch him when he didn’t even know she was there to get the best photos. We couldn’t be happier!”

 

“Kelly was wonderful from start to finish. She made what was quite an overwhelming decision really easy by putting our minds at ease. I couldn’t have asked for a better addition to our morning when we were getting ready, she wasn’t intrusive and just went about her job capturing the most perfect little details. I’m so grateful for the memories she has given us of our perfect day, she really is the best!”

 

“Kelly was absolutely fantastic throughout the whole day and made us feel relaxed cannot recommend her enough.”

 

“Kelly is lovely and a fabulous photographer. The day was captured amazingly from start to finish and would be happy to recommend to anyone.”

 

“As we were two brides, we both wanted a photographer with us getting ready in the morning. Both Lindsay and Kelly were absolutely fabulous. They were both very professional and knew just what pictures we wanted taking as we discussed this prior to the big day. And in the end, amazing pictures or a wonderful day. Cannot have wished for a better photographer!!”

 

“Fantastic!!!!”

 

“Our wedding day was traditional for the ceremony and but then very relaxed for the reception, I feel Kelly really caught that through her photos. We had some beautiful family and bride and groom shots, the bride & groom shots were exactly what I was after, no awkward posing and a stunning location that she really captured. The grooms photos were perfect, he’s never one for photos at all but we really love photos he had with his friends. The reception photos showed lots of fun, closeness and laughter and Kelly did all of this without us even really realising, so happy with how it all came together.”

 

“We would love to vote for Kelly to win this award! Kelly was amazing on our wedding day, the run up to the day and after!! I would recommend Kelly to anyone.Good luck Kel.”

 

“It was an absolute privilege to have Kelly be apart of our wedding day. From the first time we met her she made us both feel so relaxed and was so helpful on advising about shots we would like on the day.  We recommend Kelly to everyone and only wish we could get married again to capture evening more amazing photos by her! The album she designed was so perfect we didn’t change a thing! Couldn’t recommend her enough!”

Beautiful treasured moments of our children and us in our special day were perfect.”

 

“Couldn’t of asked for a better lady to photograph our special day. She captured every moment perfectly and was professional yet friendly to all of our guests. She made everyone feel comfortable while having photos done but was extremely efficient to ensure she captured every photo we had put on our list .The end result was better than we could have ever imagined and we will treasure the photos forever. Defiantly a worthy winner.”
