October 2018 I entered The Wedding Industry Awards, and November 2018 was their Awards evening in Leicster.
I made it to the top 14 Wedding Photographers out of the whole of the East Midlands, no overall win for me im afraid, but to have even got that far was an amazing achievement :)
Part of the judging process is getting your Brides and Grooms to vote for you, and only earlier this year did these comments become available to view, I was so humbled by the comments that I sat sobbing whilst reading them ! (sad I know) but it really was a memorable year in my career !
These comments below are 100% genuine, and are from couples whos Weddings I have photographed in the last 16 months.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
From the moment we decided to use Lizzie we realised her professionalism and skill level were unparalleled. We received a friendly and comprehensive
service that left us with very fond memories of our special day. Effortless and committed and we will be recommending to further potential customers.

Most of my guests commented on how amazing Elizabeth was on our wedding day, it was a very hot day but that didn’t phase her, she interacted with all

are outstanding, me and my husband couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and the photos are amazing. Would definitely recommend Elizabeth to

Lizzie was amazing before, during and after our wedding day She was very professional at all times but also made us feel comfortable around her. Lizzie
goes the extra mile in every part of her job. I felt that Lizzie was a really important part of our day and it was as if we had known her years. Our photos are
perfect and the products Lizzie offers are beautiful, at brilliant prices. Every guest at our wedding said how lovely she was and I went as far to call her my

Elizabeth was well organised through the day making sure our most important photos were capture. She came well prepared with her utility belt with
things for the children in there which worked a treat with our 1 year old that wouldn't pose for the photos. She also stayed till after her finish time to
capture photos of our evening guest which we were so happy she did as the photo booth we hired from a different supplier wasn't working. An outstanding
photograph and person. Very warm and friendly.

What can I say about this wonderful lady, Elizabeth from the first moment we met her to the end of our wedding day was just superb and I would have
absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to any of our friends or family. On the day of our wedding she was on hand to help myself, nothing was too
much trouble for her. From the meetings with ourselves she had memorised our family members names and many found this really lovely and commented
on how professional she was. An absolute angel! x

Elizabeth made our whole experience stress free and enjoyable. Right from our initial meeting and booking her through to collecting our final product,
Elizabeth was professional and kind and we could tell she loved her job. On the day Elizabeth was not only lovely to us but even our guests commented on

Elizabeth was a fantastic photographer who went above and beyond for us. She arrived early and stayed later to ensure she had all the photographs we
required. All our family and friends commented on how professional, kind and patient she was. Elizabeth calmed me down when I was stressed before I
left the house and had a bag of tricks on her like lip gloss, hair clips etc - she really thought of everything. Elizabeth captured so many wonderful memories
that we can keep forever.

Elizabeth from the first moment we met was just what we was looking for, not too serious, not pushy, listened and understood what we wanted. She
behaved like a friend at our wedding getting to know us and our family, just what we wanted! The photos were perfect captured in a style which we
wanted. We didn’t want a formal bossy photographer, we got one which we wanted, one which acted like a friend at your wedding!

Elizabeth was fantastic from the moment we engaged with her. She wanted to get as much information about the venue and our family as possible before
hand so she could really cater the event to be perfect and smooth. The way she handled herself around the family was amazing and she made everyone feel
so welcome. The quality of the photos we got, are easily more than we could have expected. I would recommend Elizabeth to anyone as she made me feel

We used Elizabeth for our wedding after a recommendation from a close friend. We found her work to be second to none and her prices very fair. We
enjoyed looking back at her work we have since had a family shoot done by her too.

Hiring Elizabeth as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our special day. Her professionalism was incredible and she
made my husband and I feel so relaxed. She understood exactly what we wanted and we really enjoyed our time with her getting shots of the two of us.
Lots of our guests commented on what a great job she did and the photos we have received from her are second to none. We can think of no one more
worthy of winning this accolade.

Elizabeth was fantastic from start to finish. She was completely organised and even helped with the bridal party getting ready. Her expertise was
phenomenal and she really put everyone at ease, the photographs taken on the day were structured in a way that everyone knew where they needed to be.
The finished product is simply sublime, every care and detail has gone into ensuring our pictures capture the essence of our beautiful day, I’m extremely
happy with everything that Elizabeth achieved :)

Lizzie is brilliant. We saw her do a friend's wedding when I was best man and she was that good that we made sure she was free before securing our date.
My wife wasn't interested in talking to anybody else. It was clear she is passionate and extremely talented and I would and have recommended her to
anyone. She made our wedding better by being there. The feedback we had from guests was 100% positive and we are delighted with the end product.

Elizabeth was such a calming influence on my wedding day. Without her, im not sure things would have gone as smoothly as they did. She blended in to
the wedding party with many guest commenting on how lovely and helpful she was, always making guests feel at ease. Our pictures were beautiful and
Lizzi couldn't do enough for us to make sure we had the best experience possible both before and after the wedding. She goes above and beyond what is
expected of a photographer. She is highly recommended.

Elizabeth orridge is a great photographer and we would definitely recommend her. The photos were brilliant and we had many comments after the
wedding from friends and family about how friendly and approachable she was. We also have a little boy and lizzi did a great job of making friends with
him and even brought some of his favourite treat (raisins) with her on the day to help the day and the photographs go smoothly. Very reasonable prices
compared to many other photographers we looked at.
