Competition winner

In case you might be cynical, like I am, about competitions and imagine there’s no real winner this is for you!

In January, Your Surrey Wedding Magazine ran a competition I had organised.

Karen Hunter won the competition and generously wrote the following comments.

Your Surrey Wedding published this article in the current issue of the hard copy Magazine:

“I entered the competition in Your Surrey Wedding to win the pre-wedding boudoir package more on a whim than anything else. Having never been a lucky person I didn’t expect much to come of it.
Photographer Kate Lloyd put me at ease straight from the start, she was friendly and chatty and obviously very passionate about what she does. We settled down with a hot chocolate to look through some previous examples of her work. She always kept me informed of every detail and she managed to secure a room at South Lodge where I would have the pictures taken. As this was also the location of the overnight stay that I had won as part of the prize package it was great to see it beforehand. As part of the prize Georgina Roberts make-up and hair stylist was on hand to work her magic and make me look beautiful.
Throughout the morning we tried several different outfits using shirts, nightwear, basques and stockings for a slightly more risqué look. The longer I spent in front of the camera the more I found myself relaxing and enjoying it, which was largely due to Kate making me feel really special.
Kate’s enthusiasm was infectious and I was desperate to see the album following the shoot. I was blown away by how amazing it was. People may make the assumption that boudoir photos are only for those confident in themselves and their bodies. Having experienced it for myself, and not being a person who is particularly confident with their physical appearance, I can assure you that after spending time in Kate’s capable hands and with Georgie’s fabulous make-up skills, you will feel like you are a supermodel.”

Now that she is safely off on her honeymoon and there’s no need to keep it completely secret I can show you the picture she agreed could be published.
It was the front of her beautiful ice acrylic album, a gift for her husband on their wedding day.
