Happily ever after! Breathtaking images showcase the best wedding photography from around the world
Stunning photographs capture intimate, dramatic and light-hearted moments at weddings around the world
Some show tiny details between a bride and her family while others make the most of beautiful settings
They are winners of the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers recent competition
From the final touches to the first dance, the most intimate moments of a wedding day are captured in these breathtaking photos. The images, taken at ceremonies around the world, celebrate the very best in wedding photography from the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers.
Some of the stunning pictures document the small details that make a wedding so special – a mother’s emotional hug; an energetic guest; or a father’s loving hand around his daughter’s waist. Others make dramatic use of stunning locations. One striking aerial portrait shows a bride floating on the crystal clear waters of Bora Bora on the day of her destination wedding. Each is a winner of the society’s Winter 2017 competition, which featured categories including ’emotional impact’, ‘humour’ and ‘getting ready’. Joe Milton, the executive director of the ISPWP, said: ‘A good wedding photograph has many of the same attributes as any good photograph – they are well exposed, well composed and good focus. ‘However an excellent wedding photograph also shows a high degree of creativity, timing, uniqueness, surprise and sometimes a little luck.’
