Upon receiving the award, Dermot said ‘To be nominated for this award is fantastic, but I have not the words to express my happiness and gratitude at winning again. I would like to congratulate the other nominees on their success, and thank the IPPA, my family and all those who have contributed to my success along the way. I would especially like to pay tribute to my clients for allowing me to record the most special day of their lives. When a couple books me to document their wedding, they are entrusting me with the responsibility of capturing their most special moments forever. To receive such an award is a great endorsement that my efforts are appreciated.
