Bride looking in mirror in garden - Picture by Jasmine Jade Photography

This beautiful picture by Jasmine Jade Photography received the most votes in our October Picture of the Day competition, and becomes the 10th picture to go through to our Picture of the Year vote.

We asked Jasmine to tell us a little bit about the picture.

“The photograph was taken at the fabulous wedding of Helen and Dan on the 4th October. It was taken at Gaynes Park in Essex, an absolute must see venue for any bride-to-be; it is wonderful in every way. The autumnal themed flowers and ‘surprise’ singing of  a one direction hit (a favourite of the grooms) really made this wedding.

“This image is of Helen outside the ‘apple loft’ in her beautiful Justin Alexander dress; its fishtail shape and vintage design on the back, mixed with the lovely setting, make for a stylised image for the bride and groom to treasure for ever.”

Wedding party watching bride and groom kiss - Picture by Oscar and Rose Photography

Congratulations to Oscar and Rose Photography, the winner of our September Picture of the Day vote. This fantastic picture received the most votes from our readers to become the ninth picture to go through to our Picture of the Year vote in January.

Emma from Oscar and Rose told us a little bit about the picture…

“When Abi told me she was designing and making all six of her bridesmaid’s dresses, I knew this was going to be a wedding with a difference. Each dress was totally different, and Abi looked stunning in her dress too.

“The groom, Ant, is in a band and had 2 best men, so I knew everyone was going to be really up for trying some different shots from the more traditional wedding images, and because there were six bridesmaids and 2 best men, their friends obviously mean a lot to them, so I wanted to take a shot that wasn’t just about the bride and groom.

“I’m so pleased to have had the chance to shoot Abi and Ant’s wedding, it was one of the best weddings I have been to.”

Congratulations to Little Jewel Photography, the winner of our August Picture of the Day competition. This beautiful picture received the most votes from our readers, and becomes the 8th picture to go through to our Picture of the Year vote in January.

We asked Julie of Little Jewel Photography to tell us a little bit about the picture.

“This is one of my all time favourite wedding images. It was taken of Jo and Dom who were married at Ripley Castle in Harrogate in April 2011. It was Easter weekend and one of the hottest days of the year.

“This picture was taken after the ceremony, during the time I spent just with the couple. The grounds at Ripley Castle are exquisite so we took a few glasses of Champagne and just went for a walk around the grounds, capturing a few intimate moments along the way. I try not to direct my couples too much as I find the best images are often the spontaneous ones.

“What I love about this image is its simplicity and tranquility; the bride and groom sharing a quiet moment together on their wedding day. The tenderness of the brides head resting on her husband’s shoulder; the couple looking out in the distance, picturing their future together. I like the anonymity of the shot… as though you can picture yourself being there in that moment.

“It was a fantastic day with a truly lovely couple who have just had a beautiful little baby so many congratulations to them!”

Black and white picture of bride opening curtains in front of window - Picture by Karli Harrison Photography

Congratulations to Karli Harrison Photography, the winner of our July Picture of the Day competition. This beautiful picture received the most votes in our poll, and becomes the 7th picture to go through to our Picture of the Year vote.

The picture was taken before Claire and Roger’s wedding at Northop Hall Country House Hotel in Chester, and we asked Karli to tell us a little bit about how the picture came about.

“Claire and Roger’s wedding took place on 23rd June at the picturesque Northop Hall Country House Hotel, Chester. During the bridal preparations, I noticed how lovely the window looked in the bridal suite; grand curtains with a beautiful chandelier in the foreground. As soon as I saw Claire’s dress, I knew this picture would be the shot of the day. Not only does this picture show off the stunning detail in the design of her gown, but to me, it represents some of the factors that make wedding days so very special –  a beautiful bride, the excitement, the slight trepidation of what the day will bring and the hope of a bright new future ahead for her and her husband.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to the lovely Claire for being my gorgeous model, and a huge congrats to the new Mr and Mrs Miller!”

Bride and groom kissing in a field with dark clouds overhead - Picture by Charlotte Snowden Photography

We now have half our finalists for our Picture of the Year vote, after this fantastic picture by Charlotte Snowden received the most votes in our June Picture of the Day competition, and became the 6th picture to go through to the final vote. We asked a delighted Charlotte to tell us a little bit about the picture…

“This picture comes from the wedding of Dan and Sally which took place in Oxfordshire last summer. Dan and Sally had a beautiful horse drawn carriage which took them from their church wedding ceremony to their reception. On the way to the reception venue there were lovely rolling wheat fields, so I asked Dan and Sally if they would come into the field for the shot – the result was this spectacular image with the dramatic clouds in the background.”
