I was delighted to actually win at Ireland’s first ever online wedding awards last year. I was voted ‘Wedding Videographer of the Year’. If you’d like to show your support for me, or to vote for any of your favorite Irish wedding suppliers, now is your chance. Voting is now open to the public – whether we filmed your wedding or not. All we need is a second of your time, and two clicks of your index finger. Click on this link:
You can also send a quick one-line e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, saying that you’d like to vote for Bride & Groom Films for ‘Wedding Videographer of the Year’.
The Real Weddings.ie awards is a meaningful award for a wedding supplier because in order to be nominated you first have to be voted for by the public (clients, generally) in order to even make it to the “shortlist”.
Thanks to everyone who has voted so far to give me the nomination. Let’s kick 2011 off to a great start and get this one in the bag.

I’m delighted to report that I recently won Wedding Videographer of the Year 2009, voted for by the brides and grooms of Ireland, in Ireland’s very first online wedding awards. It was held by Real Weddings.ie
Some statistics on the awards, according to Real Weddings:
It was Ireland’s very first online wedding awards.
There were over 800 postal entries.
There were over 950 email entries.
There were 10,688 votes counted online.
I am also delighted to announce that I am one of the final six nominees for Wedding Videographer of the Year 2009 at the upcoming first annual Weddings Online Awards (also voted for by the brides and grooms of Ireland).
It was only last year that I was “ranked among the best videographers in the world” by the DV Awards, in the categories of ‘Outstanding Wedding Videography’ and ‘Best Demo Reel’. To read the Press Release click here. According to Martin Rhodes of the DV Awards (based in America), I was the first Irish winner in the wedding category. I had previously won a DV Award in 2004 for a short film screenplay that I wrote.
I see an award as merely a pat on the back, whether received by my peers or by clients who are happy with my services. Nonetheless, being nominated or winning is very encouraging to work harder and to push yourself further. I would like to thank those of you, sincerely, for supporting me in the online wedding awards polls and for the taking the time to send in your written entires. I am very grateful to you.Tags: 2009, award, awards, best, dublin, DV, dvd, finlay, ireland, irish, leading, nominated, online, real, richard, video, videographer, videography, vote, wedding, weddings, winner, year
