Announcing the Winner of the 2021 Wedding Photo of the Year
Once again, my annual wedding photo of the year contest has come to a close and once again the record number of votes cast has been smashed with no fewer than 649 votes being cast!
Due to the international nature of some of the weddings I covered in 2020 – despite COVID restrictions – a record number of international votes weree also recorded, with only 417 of the votes originating in Australia!
I run my annual photo of the year contest as a bit of a thankyou to all of the wedding couples that had chosen me as their wedding photographer in the past year, and it also allows me to learn a little bit about what my past couples see as their best photo from their wedding photography collection. their selection is always interesting to me as it may not have been my personal favourite from their wedding day – but it really isn’t my choice that matters!
Winner of the 2021 Wedding Photo of the Year
Jayne and Pete held their wedding at the wonderful Paxton Winery in Mclaren vale right at the beginning of all the COVID nonsense that has rocked the world. In fact i seem to remember that COVID restrictions in SA were put in place within days of their wedding – possibly the very next day – I’m not sure.
With a strong overseas contingent in their guest list, I had heard stories of everyone making a mad dash back home a bit sooner than expected!
Jayne and Pete were super lucky to have hosted possibly the last ‘normal’ wedding of 2020, and now they – with the help of their friends and family’s votes – have won a $500 gift voucher to spend on whatever they like in my online shop!
