A Wick jewellery designer proved she was no bridesmaid when she took home one of the top awards at the 2014 Scottish Wedding Awards.
Lynsey MacGregor of Lark and Lily Designs was named as the Wedding Accessories Supplier of the Year at the ceremony in Glasgow.
Her business specialises in creating unique hand-made jewellery and head pieces from her home in Upper Dunbar Street which she started in July 2011.
She set up a successful business without any financial assistance from banks by using her own initiative.
A graduate of Heriot Watt University with a BSc in textiles and fashion design management, she previously worked in a fashion store and a bank before deciding to set up her own business three years ago.
In 2012, she was named as the Caithness Chamber of Commerce Young Entrepreneur and her online based business has sold items to customers across the glove including Asia, Australia and North America.
