A KILBIRNIE company is celebrating after being made finalists in two wedding awards ceremonies.

Derek Sweeney and wife Maureen own Ultimate Moments Videography and recently found out they are on the shortlist at the Scottish Wedding Awards and the National Wedding Awards in Liverpool.

The pair are delighted and honoured to be a finalist in the Outstanding Wedding Supplier of The Year category of the 2018 Scottish Wedding Awards.

Derek said: “Listening to our clients and their input, as to their wishes, is extremely important to us, as we endeavour to make sure that all individuals are more than satisfied, so that they enjoy the whole experience, from the initial phone call or email right through to the final viewing of their film.

“From large weddings to small intimate occasions, UMV specialises in capturing the atmosphere, excitement and emotion of the day. “We film in an unobtrusive and natural style, using multi cameras and two camera operators on most occasions, namely Derek and Maureen, to give that personal touch.

“Blending in to the background and capturing every moment of the wedding, we produce a unique, beautiful and authentic film for the couple to cherish forever.”

They are the only Ayrshire Company and one of only two Scottish Wedding Companies to be nominated for the National Wedding Awards Final which takes place in Liverpool on March 8.

Both Derek and Maureen will travel to Liverpool for the Gala Final and look forward to what will be a great night at the Epstein Theatre whatever the result.
