Welcoming entries from brides, grooms, wedding guests and photographers, the awards saw the final photos receive more than 1,300 votes on Facebook and Instagram.

The winners of the five categories are:

Best First Dance 

An atmospheric black and white shot submitted by Fiona and Graeme Roberts of Leeds, who are celebrating their first anniversary this month.


Best Themed Photograph

Fiona and Graeme also won this category with an image of the bridal party against the imposing backdrop of The Queens in Leeds.


Best First Look

Bride Rebecca Oxtoby, of Liverpool, submitted this emotive photograph with her grandad.


Funniest Photograph

Kirsty Rushby’s photograph of a bride clutching an umbrella and gathering up her gown to dash across a damp lawn in the rain took this title. 


Perfect Kiss

Wedding photographer, Stephen McGowan’s romantic image of newlyweds sharing a passionate kiss in a field of maize scooped this accolade. 


The winners in each category will receive a one-night QHotels break for two with dinner.

QHotels’ marketing director, Claire Rowland, said: “Following the success of last year’s competition, we were thrilled to have even more beautiful entries to choose from this year, spanning a diverse range of styles, moods and themes. Our judges had a really tough time deciding on their shortlist."

“Congratulations to our winners and many thanks to everyone who entered and voted," continued Claire. It’s safe to say the winning entries will provide a wealth of inspiration for our wedding teams and hopefully anyone planning their own special day, too.”
