I’ve won a Wedisson Award!

Wedisson International Wedding Photography Awards

I’d never entered any of my wedding photography into an awards competition before. I’m not really sure why, but I was recently encouraged to by some other photographer friends, and I’m glad they did. This morning I woke to find an email from the good people at Wedisson letting me know that my shot from Sharne & Tom’s wedding in Leicestershire last year is to be included in their 28th collection! It’s an international wedding photography competition so I’m delighted and humbled to be included amongst the winners.

This unposed moment was captured in the final stages of Sharne’s morning preparations at Stanford Hall, just as her stunning veil was fitted. The air was thick with the usual pre-wedding nerves and excitement, and I love the look between Sharne and her bridesmaid, while her sister and mother look on as her transformation into a beautiful bride is complete. I wanted to shoot against the light to pick out detail on the veil, and to compose from this wide side angle to include everyone in the image.
