A NEWPORT wedding photographer has been named as one of the best wedding photographers in the world by an international wedding collective.

Nick Murray, of Rogerstone, was delighted to become part of the Junebug Weddings collective considered to be a big deal in the wedding industry.

The America-based collective is an online list of the best photographers, planners, designers, and venues across the world.

He was shortlisted as one of the best in Wales after being personally invited by the international collective. The delighted photographer who has previously won the title of ‘Best Regional Photographer’ for the whole of Cardiff, Newport; Monmouthshire; Blaenau Gwent; Torfaen; Caerphilly and The Vale, and was judged to be one of the top five wedding photographers in the whole country; said: “It is a big deal in the wedding industry, and it is an invite-only thing.

“I was nominated by three photographers who I don’t even know and I was then contacted by Junebug on email and asked if I wanted to be part of it.”
