I entered this photo I took of my lovely friends Jay & Tessa into the Wedisson International Wedding Photography Awards and it won! Delighted that the judges deemed it worthy of inclusion in their 25th Collection. You can view it now on their website at

I was super excited when Jay & Tessa asked me to travel up to the north of England to capture their wedding, and my excitement only grew when I heard about all the plans they had, and all the fun little details that would make the day their own! The wedding itself was really intimate, special and emotional, and one of the photographic highlights, was the appearance of an old vintage double decker bus to transport the guests between venues. The bus was stunning, and my thoughts instantly turned to finding a nice spot for them to have a moment alone (well apart from me and my camera!), so on inspection it was obvious the top deck provided a very cool spot for them to enjoy a little quiet time. I choose to pick them a seat, and rather than pose them, I decided to then leave them to do whatever they wanted – I got a whole series of awesome moments from this setting, but this one in particular really stood out for me as it showed them both naturally enjoying the moment and taking in what they had just done. I think it’s a really romantic moment and I’m really proud of it.
