North Notts Business Awards

Last week saw me donning my tux and black tie – I had the huge privilege of being the chosen photographer to capture the fun and excitement of the North Notts Business Awards 2012.  A prestigious black tie event held at the stunningly beautiful five star venue Hodsock Priory and organised by North Notts Business Connections.

I’d photographed weddings, parties and other events but never a corporate event in such a stunning setting.  So, it was all systems go right from the start.  I’d roped in my colleague Daniel Torridon to help out on the night as this was definitely a two man job.  The event organiser wanted a full studio style photo booth area and also wanted candids and formals of the award presentations.  George the owner of Hodsock gave us a prime spot to set up the studio and this proved to be an instant hit with all the guests having to pass by – perfect opportunity to offer them a studio portrait in all their splendour.  With a precision workflow in progress we managed to get capture to print down to less than two minutes, it was fast paced but loads of fun!

If you have never been to Hodsock it is well worth a visit when it is open to the public.  Its a beautiful family owned historic house set in 800 acres of countryside famed for its annual display of Snowdrops.  With beautiful period oak panelled rooms and large Pavilion function room it was the perfect place to hold the awards that celebrate the best of business in North Nottinghamshire.

The guests were entertained by by the highly acclaimed female violinist Alexandra Parker who some of you may recognise from last year Britain’s Got Talent and also by the magician Saul.

With many awards up for grabs by the finalists there was plenty of drama and joviality as the winners were announced and Rob Ferrol Photography would like to congratulate them all:
