Emma Gray, based in Vicar Street, was nominated last year and Emma was thrilled to pick up the 2015 accolade, beating 11 other businesses.

Emma said: “Photography is one of the biggest categories and most difficult to get nominated in, so even to make the shortlist is incredible.

“When compere Craig Hill announced me as the winner I actually danced over to the stage.

“I think I’m still in shock, the award means a lot to me because they are decided from customer testimonials.

“I’m over the moon!”

Catwalk in Princes Street has been nominated for the VOWS five years in a row and won their category in 2012, 2014 and 2015.

Owner Pauline Spiers said the success of the business would not be possible without her incredible team of staff.

She said: “We’ve been nominated five years running, which is incredible, it proves we are consistent and committed to delivering excellent customer service with every single person that walks through our door.

“We were up against really good competition so it’s amazing to have won for the second year running.”

Pamela Jayne Bridal in Bonnybridge and Olivia Cameron Bridal in Falkirk were shortlisted in the bridal wear category but were pipped to the post by Rachel Scott Couture in Edinburgh.
