And the winner is… Katherine Ashdown Photography!

We now have half of our finalists for our 2016 Picture of the Year competition, after this stunning picture by Katherine Ashdown Photography was voted The Wedding Community’s June 2016 Picture of the Month. Taken at Lucy and Steve’s wedding in Devon earlier this year, the couple were only too happy to climb the rocks by their beachfront venue so Katherine could get this shot…

The Perfect Moment

“I am thrilled to have won Picture of the Month with this shot. This was taken at Steve and Lucy’s wedding at the incredible Tunnels Beaches in Devon. I am from Norfolk so had travelled down especially for their day in May this year.

“They had the most incredible weather and the venue is surrounded by angular cliffs and a private beach. Lucy is also a wedding photographer so the pressure was on, but that also meant they were up for anything I suggested, including climbing up these rocks for this shot.

“All day I had seen seagulls flying around and thought it would be lovely to capture them in a shot, but these two appeared at the perfect moment for this image.

“It was the most wonderful, fun, relaxed wedding and I felt very lucky to be able to capture it for them. This shot to me especially summarised their love of Devon and of this incredible venue so I am over the moon it won!”
