Two men who run a Midlothian photography company recently picked up an award at the Scottish Wedding Awards for their work.

Matthew Dale and Daniel Rannoch from Dalkeith run Fern Photography, which won the Best Wedding Photographer South East Region award at the event, held in Glasgow.

Daniel (38), said: “It was great to win, really good. It was decided by a public vote. It was very exciting and just great to be recognised.

“We don’t know who nominated us but the votes were from customers who use our business.

“We do all kinds of photographs but mainly wedding photography. We now get to say that we are one of the top photography businesses in Scotland and that adds confidence to the couple and shows we have great customer service as well as taking great photos.

“We have seen an increase in enquiries since we won the award.

“On the night it was great to meet lots of wedding professionals and other wedding people. It was good to put faces to names that we have seen around and make some personal connections with other businesses.”
