Bride's veil blowing away in wind as bride and groom pose for picture - Picture by James Andrew Photography

James Andrew Photography took second place with this fab picture from Caroline and Andy’s wedding at Norton Priory in Cheshire. It wasn’t until later in the day that James even realised he’d captured this one-off moment…

“I asked the couple to stand by the ruins, but as I raised the camera to my eye a massive gust of wind blew over. I could see Caroline’s veil was starting to lift off so I just kept my finger on the shutter release and waited to see what happened… her veil took off like a kite and headed off into he distance.

Range of Emotions

“I captured this moment during the wedding of Mel and Baz on 1st September 2017, at Billesley Manor in Warwickshire. I’d noticed a couple of the bridesmaids crying during the ceremony, and the occasion seemed to have got to this lady in particular, as she couldn’t hold in the tears even after the ceremony was over. The guests were waiting around as Mel and Baz were signing the register, so I made my move over to the far side of the room to capture this shot.

“I love the range of emotions; the laughter from the other guests contrasting with the tears. Plus the light in the ceremony room at Billesley Manor was just incredible. It was a wonderful day and one of my favourite weddings of 2017.”
