Our Picture of the Year 2016 competition is now closed, the votes have been counted, and the results are in… but before we reveal the winner of our Picture of the Year 2015 we’d like to give a special mention to the photographers who came second and third…
This stunning picture by Chris Chambers Photography took second place. Taken on the bridge next to the lake at Ripley Castle, North Yorkshire, at Claire and Andrew’s wedding, this picture was the result of “a grabbed moment” after Chris had looked back and saw “the colouring sky, clouds and railings creating great lines leading back to the castle”.
Third place went to KTM Photography. This gorgeous picture was taken in May 2015 at the wedding of Louisa and Neil at Burntwood Court Hotel and Spa. As the sun started to set, Katie of KTM Photography took the couple away “to capture some precious moments with just the two of them”. As Louisa and Neil turned to face each other the setting sun highlighted them from behind and Katie captured this perfectly intimate moment between the two of them.
