The Garden Media Guild Awards 2018 at The Savoy Hotel, London

December 05, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Last week I was commissioned to photograph the Garden Media Guild (GMG)’s annual award ceremony at the Savoy Hotel on The Strand in London. This was the 5th year I've photographed this event and it was really lovely to be back to capture the event again this year and to see lots of friendly faces. The awards celebrate the talent, skill and inspiration of garden media professionals across the industry, and are open to everyone who generates or publishes garden-related material. It's a great chance for those in the industry to celebrate their achievements, catch up with old friends and network with new connections.

I was there capturing the day for those who were there and to publicise these and future awards. The Hot Club of Jupiter were back, entertaining the guests with  jazz as drinks were sipped at the reception in the River Room. Everyone then headed down to the ballroom where outgoing chairman Clare Foggett from The English Garden Magazine introduced host Sophie Raworth, who gave a wonderful speech about on her own family history of gardening and the kindness of gardeners in general. Stunning floral displays by Judith Blacklock with roses from David Austin Roses adorned the tables and a delicious 3 course meal was then enjoyed before the main even - the awards themselves. Here are a selection of photographs, but you can see the whole gallery here: https://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/gmgawards18

Celebrations were had, amazing goody bags received and festivities continued at the pub, while I got cracking on processing the photos so they could be shared as soon as possible. See the whole gallery here: https://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/gmgawards18
