I was so thrilled for my friend and featured wedding photographer Suzy Mitchell when I found out she’d won a major award in wedding photography. Suzy has featured on the English Wedding Blog many times and I’m delighted to be able to share her news with you all today.

Every year The Guild Of Photographers holds a competition for the Photographer and Image of the Year. In 2014 over 10,000 images were submitted so it’s really something for Suzy to have come away with such a great award – only two wedding images were chosen as winners, and Suzy’s was the overall winner in documentary wedding photography.

Suzy told me, “I was elated to have been chosen as Documentary Wedding Photographer of the Year and delighted to put Ilkley on the map as we have some amazing opportunities for outdoor photography including Bolton Abbey Priory where the winning photograph was taken.

Suzy’s studio nestles at the foot of Ilkley Moor from where she enjoys using the beautiful Yorkshire Dales as a backdrop for much of her photography.
