A talented flutist from Cambuslang famous after her alliance won a prestigious award.
Siobhan Rodger’s band Amarone won the award for Best Ceremonial Entertainment at the Confetti Wedding Awards for the second year in a row.
Last year’s victory was the first time Siobhan and his girlfriend Emma McDowell have won the award after several years of near misses.
And the flautist was delighted to receive this honor.
She told The Reformer: “We are absolutely delighted to win again.
“There was a little feeling that because we won it last year, it might go to someone else this year, so we were really happy to be wrong about that.
“Judges’ comments take a look at every aspect of what you do, which gives you a little extra sparkle when you hear you’ve won it. “
To win the award, Siobhan and Emma had to complete a detailed questionnaire about their work, as well as submit several videos of their performances at weddings.
They had been nominated for the award by previous clients who were satisfied with their work.
Siobhan believes the price can help them boost their future bookings.
She said: “They help build awareness and I think they help your business because it gives people extra security – when they see you’ve won an award and you’ve been nominated by people, they know you have to be good at what you do.
The awards were presented at a gala ceremony at the Crowne Plaze Hotel in Glasgow earlier this month.
Siobhan started the wedding duo with Emma six years ago, and finds that they are helped by being able to play with other great musicians at wedding shows.
And she loves being able to help a happy couple on their big day.
She added: “I still absolutely love him.
“I have had a few consultations recently and talking to brides recently about their day and what we can do to help them is always exciting for me.”
