Hat-trick for Cuffley photography company at FSB Small Business Awards

A PHOTOGRAPHY company from Cuffley scooped a hat-trick of awards at the second annual Federation of Small Business (FSB) Hertfordshire Small Business Awards last night (Thursday).

Hannah Couzens Photography was named Overall County winner at the ceremony, walking away with �1,000 in cash and �20,000 worth of advertising.

Earlier in the evening, Hannah, 27, had been named Young Business Person of the Year, while studio manager Gemma Knichel, 24, was named Employee of the Year.

“It was completely unexpected,” said Hannah, who set up her first studio in Station Road, Cuffley, at the age of 22.

“I was amazed, and really pleased for the whole business. It reminds you why you do this – all of your hard work feels like it’s been recognised and it’s a great feeling.”
