Hotel launches wedding photo awards 2017

The Cheltenham Chase has launched its annual search for Gloucestershire's best wedding photos.

After receiving over 2,500 entries and votes in the first Wedding Photo Awards last year, The Chase is now calling for entries to the 2017 competition, which will celebrate the memorable moments captured at weddings, from the funny to the romantic.

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

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

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.

Entries will close on 3 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.

Dan Kelly, general manager at The Chase, launched the awards, saying: "We received some fantastic entries from the people of Gloucestershire into last year's competition, from stunning black and white photography, to comically-staged group photographs and photo-bombed selfies.

"We're expecting to see even more creative shots entered into the 2017 awards, as brides and grooms-to-be take their inspiration from social media channels, such as Instagram and Pinterest. We can't wait to see more wonderful and unique photos!"
