2012 Westcountry Wedding Awards Classic Photographer Winner

I was thrilled to named the 2012 Classic Wedding Photographer of the Year at the Westcountry Wedding Awards. Below are a few of the comments from the 2012 awards from past couples...

"We were thrilled with the service received from Elizabeth Armitage. From our first meeting with her at a weeding fair she was so friendly and helpful, I had complete confidence in her from that moment. Communicating with her was easy and stress free. Her complete professionalism on the day was fantastic. Our wedding album is amazing, a great mix of portrait style and informal which really captured the joy and luahgter on the day perfectly. I cannot recommend how highly I regarded the service recieved and feel that she a truly deserving winner of this award."

"Liz was the most fantastic photographer I could have hoped for. On the day she supported me a lot, not just as our photographer, but guiding me through how a wedding opperates when I needed it (I haven't been to many weddings before) and helping me with my hair when the clips all fell out!Her presence was very reassuring! We were quite a relaxed bride and groom and her style adapted to our no-fuss aproach. The portrait shots were very well thought out, which meant no time was wasted away from our guests trying to get the right angle etc. I did not notice Liz taking photos at all during the ceremony, even though she has some great shots of it! Most importantly the photos are fantastic! They really capture the essence of the day and the individual personalities of each of our guests.perfect!"

"From the day we booked with Liz we knew we'd made the right choice.She was warm and friendly and made us feel relaxed about the big day from the start.Everyone at our wedding commented on how fabulous she was as she mingled with guests and made them feel relaxed. The album she produced was amazing, just what we wanted. We couldn't recommend her highly enough."

"We were soooo thrilled with our wedding photos from Liz, she really captured everything so naturally and very effortless. My bunch including myself are not the most photogenic but Liz made us all feel at ease and relaxed. You can tell Liz truely enjoys her position behind the camera, its not a business for her its a passion and that shines through. Thank you so very much xxx"

"Liz was an fantastic photographer. She did everything with such grace and discretion and made all the guests feel at ease. I loved having her there on the day and the photographs she produced were outstanding. The quality of the album was above and beyond what we ever expected. We'll certainly be recommending her and she thoroughly deserves this award."

2011 Westcountry Wedding Awards Classic Photographer Winner

Winning 2011 Classic Wedding Photographer at the Westcountry Wedding Awards meant so much to me. Below are a few of the comments from clients who voted for me in the 2011 awards...

"Liz was outstanding. She was lovely to deal with and made us feel very at ease. She was very professional but relaxed at the same time. The photos she did were stunning - everything we could have wished for. She listened to what we wanted and delivered this. She was dedicated on the day, photographing every detail. We couldn't recommend her highly enough."

"Excellent, friendly service from Liz, who mixed well with our guests and seemed to enjoy our wedding as much as the rest of us did! Very flexible on the day when various changes arose last minute. A lot of our guests commented on how great she was and the photos she produced were fantastic. Delivered everything in the package we chose plus a lot more! Would definitly recommend to other couples getting married."

"We met Liz at Westpoint wedding fair and immediately she stood out from the rest of the photographers... Liz couldnt do enough to help on the lead up to the wedding. On the day, Liz was amazing. She manged to capture the day wonderfully and worked so hard taking photos at every opportunity without being intrusive. We ended up with a perfect combination of formal photos and relaxed photos. After the wedding a family relative saw the photos, and having got married 2 weeks before wished she had known about Liz as she was so impressed by her photography. The album Liz did for us (inc in the cost) was outstanding and really encapsulated the day, this will now help to provide happy memories forever more."

"Elizabeth is amazing - her customer service is second to none. She came to our house several times to discuss our photographs and then our album and we have an exquisite album for a great price that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. She is great on the day, unobtrusive and fast so you can get on with your day. She carried out all our instructions perfectly and was an indispensable part of making it an easy and hugely successful day."

"Outstanding service from start to finish. Liz was so friendly yet professional, and it was an honour to have her there on our special day. The photos are amazing and our album we will treasure forever."

We are so pleased that we chose you to do our photos for us and all our guests said how lovely you were, so thank you to you too for being amazing!

We cannot thank you enough for the amazing photos you took of our wedding day. They are better than we ever expected them to be! It was such a pleasure to meet you and have you there on our special day and we are so pleased that we chose you to be our photographer. We would recommend you to everyone as we think you are just great! We cannot wait to receive our album as we know that is going to be amazing and something very special to keep to remind us of our perfect day.

Thank you so much for everything....not just the pictures but for being so great on the day. From saving my hair to just generally being lovely and totally fitting in with us, you were absolutely brilliant and totally captured the essence of what we wanted from the day.

Dear Elizabeth,

I just wanted to send the biggest thank you possible for such an incredibly amazing Hen Shoot. Even though I was devastated that my sister had a cancelled flight the night before and was unable to make it, you made the change of circumstances effortless and calmed me in a heartbeat. I was so overwhelmed walking into the pretty studio, (in case you couldn't tell from the hyperventilating!) at how you had taken my initial idea of romantic Tigerlily and made it so much more than I could have imagined. The High tea, amazing vintage props and great hair and makeup team made the day even more spectacular, and I loved my 'pulled through the most amazing hedge' hairdo and dramatic makeup. Your exceptional talent, styling and eye for detail made the day one that I will never forget and I would highly recommend you to every bride to be out there.
I just wish I could be in a crochet-feather-tipi dreamworld permanently!
So thank you from the bottom of our hearts, I'll be sure to book a maternity shoot with you in the future! :)

I can't thank you enough for your amazing talent and your support from start to finish (you did wonders with an average subject) and I hope to do another shoot sometime in the not too distant future (maybe in your studio). I am promoting you at every opportunity and my friends and family love the pics too...

Once again thank you so much you have done wonders for my confidence and I had a wonderful time.

Kind regards
