Earlier this month I had the privilege of photographing the first ever Coventry and Warwickshire Woman Who Awards event in Coombe Abbey’s lovely marquee. I’d met most of the finalists a few weeks earlier when I took their portraits during the interview stage so it was exciting to finally find out who’d won.
Radio and TV presenter, Trish Adudu, was our entertaining host and we were treated to inspiring speeches from judges Emma Heathcote-James, founder of the Little Soap Company, and Dr Sharon Redrobe, CEO of Twycross Zoo, as well as Judy Groves, talking about the Woman of the Year Awards.
Here are some highlights, but you’ll find lots more photos from the Awards here, plus the option to buy copies for yourselves.
Congratulations to all the finalists and winners. And well done to Sandra Garlick and FH Events for putting on a very slick event. It felt like an established Awards ceremony rather than the first one. I’m looking forward to next year’s now – keep an eye on the official website for details.
And here are the official winners’ photos.
