A couple of awards.


Nice to wake up this morning and while preparing my camera equipment for today’s wedding, get an email from the  ISPWP*  ( The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers ) and find I got two award placings in the latest quarterly contest – a worldwide competition.

Even better that it was for two of my favourite wedding images from this year.

First off, a 2nd place for this image in the ‘Ceremony’ category..award-winning reportage wedding photography by Martin Beddall in international competition

The other image gained an 8th place position in the ‘Kids will be Kids’ category

reportage wedding photography award

Check out the contest winning images here – be inspired for your own wedding! 🙂

There is no need to do the ‘ABC ‘  that vicars/registrars, etc impose upon UK weddings!

* The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) is a rarity among wedding photography organizations. Photographers cannot simply buy an ISPWP membership, they have to earn it.

Our requirements are experience, talent, and professionalism. To be accepted, a photographer must have shot at least 50 weddings, submit their portfolio for review, agree to operate under the ISPWP Code of Conduct, and have an ISPWP Sponsor or four references. And THEN they have to be voted in by current members.

 In short, when you hire an ISPWP Photographer, you are hiring a talented veteran with a track record, peer recognition, and a passion for creating heirloom images of your wedding.



Both those images are absolute crackers. Well deserved recognition. Congrats Martin

Totally agree. That St. Paul’s shot is outstanding. Well done!

Very well deserved, Martin. Two of my favourite images of the year.
