QHotels launches search for the nation’s best wedding photos

QHotels' Wedding Photo Awards

Inspired by wedding guests at its 26 hotels across the UK, QHotels has launched a search for the nation's best wedding photos in its first ever Wedding Photo Awards.

The awards - which are open to amateur photographers as well as professionals - aim to celebrate the special moments captured at weddings, whether funny, emotional, creative or romantic.

Over the next two months, the hotel group is calling for photos to be entered into the awards on QHotels' Facebook page, using the hashtag #WeddingPhotoAwards along with the name of the category they wish to enter.

Anyone in the UK can submit a photo, whether an experienced photographer or a guest at the wedding, taken on a camera or even snapped on a smart phone. 



Categories are:

•          Best wedding selfie

•          Most loved-up photo

•          Best family photo

•          Funniest wedding photo


Prizes include an overnight stay, spa day and a meal for two at one of QHotels' award-winning restaurants. One prize will be awarded to the photo entry with the most 'likes' in each category on QHotels' Facebook page.

QHotels' Director of Marketing, Claire Rowland, launched the awards, saying: "Hosting hundreds of weddings every year means we understand just how important photographs are, as a lasting memory of a couple's big day.  One great photo can capture a unique moment and bring the emotions and feelings flooding back.

"We see some beautiful professional photos, but now that wedding guests are often snapping on smart phones throughout the day, it's sometimes the most unexpected picture that tells the story of the day like no other - whether it's a selfie on the dancefloor or the congratulatory hugs for the happy couple.  

"We want to share those special moments in time and celebrate both the talented and the budding photographers at weddings. Even the funny photos, or those taken by the selfie experts, can help inspire future brides and grooms planning their wedding.

"It's really easy to enter, it's just a case of posting the photo on our Facebook wall along with the hashtag #WeddingPhotoAwards."
