Last Wednesday evening I got word that I had won the Mrs2Be brides choice awards for wedding Videography in Ireland!
The Mrs2Be Brides’ Choice Awards were launched in 2014. The awards are the first and only Irish wedding industry awards that are based on a detailed review process involving each entrant’s previous customers. Entrants are judged on a range of criteria including professionalism and quality. Entrants are judged primarily via a review system involving previous couples who have recently used their service. These reviews are independently verified and cross-referenced to ensure credibility.
I was nominated last year and was honoured to become a finalist. This year I was nominated by a couple whose wedding I filmed early in 2015 and I progressed once again to the finals, but this time I went all the way and won! It’s a nervous wait to see how things go with the judges and of course how the couples vote. But as I always say, every wedding video I complete is a winner for me – when I get an e-mail, text, Facebook review or a phone call to say how delighted a couple are with their wedding DVD, well I just won all over again!
Wedding videography can be a strange business sometimes, no two couples have the same taste in filming or the music they pick for the final product. Over the years I have seen the way weddings are delivered – these times of course it’s DVD and also flash drives are making their way on stream. But I have always kept up-to-date with all the latest technology, including the new Sony cams, the very best in software, computers, and of course my own creative and unique way of filming weddings all wrapped into a professional, affordable and unobtrusive style. And by the looks of things it’s working both for the couple and for me, so happy days there!
It’s time to get ready for this week’s weddings – some more fantastic couples to meet, new places, new faces, and hopefully more referrals, that’s how my business works best. It also helps that my website is at the top of google for wedding video in Tipperary, along with Kilkenny and Carlow – I love SEO and how Google works behind the scenes, and by the looks of things it has paid off again! Thank you to all my 2105 couples that took the time to vote for us. ~ Joe & Breda
