Slaley Hall launches Wedding Photo Awards 2017

Slaley Hall has launched its annual search for the North East’s best wedding photos, as the QHotels Wedding Photo Awards opens for entries on Facebook and Instagram.
After receiving over 2,500 entries and votes in the first Wedding Photo Awards last year, Slaley Hall is now calling for entries to the 2017 competition, which will celebrate the memorable moments captured at weddings, from the funny to the romantic.

Anyone in the UK can submit a photo – whether an experienced photographer or a guest at a wedding – by posting it on QHotels’ Facebook or Instagram page using the hashtag #WeddingPhotoAwards, along with the name of the category they wish to enter.

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

The 2017 Wedding Photo Award categories are:

  • Best ‘first look’ photo
  • Funniest wedding photo
  • Best ‘perfect kiss’ photo
  • Best ‘first dance’ photo
  • Best ‘themed wedding’ photo

Entries will close on 3rd July when QHotels’ expert wedding panel will announce the shortlist for each category, before going to a public vote on social media to decide the winner.

Andrew Fox, General Manager at Slaley Hall, launched the awards, saying: “Last year we received some fantastic entries from the North East, from stunning classic photography to perfectly-timed comedy shots.

“We’re hoping to see even more creative entries into the 2017 awards, as brides and grooms-to-be continue to impress their guests with inspirational wedding ideas and unique photo opportunities. We can’t wait to see more wonderful shots from across the region.”
