Wed­ding photo awards

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS -

A HO­TEL has launched a com­pe­ti­tion to find the the best wed­ding photos around.

Mot­tram Hall Ho­tel has opened its an­nual search for the best wed­ding photos in Mac­cles­field and across the county, with the QHo­tels Wed­ding Photo Awards opens for en­tries on Face­book and In­sta­gram.

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

Any­one 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.

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

The 2017 Wed­ding Photo Award cat­e­gories are best ‘first look’ photo fun­ni­est wed­ding photo, best ‘per­fect kiss’ photo, best ‘first dance’ photo and best ‘themed wed­ding’ photo.

En­tries will close on July 3 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.

Deirdre Billing, gen­eral man­ager at Mot­tram Hall, who launched the awards, said: “We re­ceived some fan­tas­tic en­tries from the peo­ple of Mac­cles­field 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.”

The ho­tel has just picked up an award for the events and con­fer­ences it hosts.

It re­ceived the VenueVer­dict Gold Stan­dard Ac­cred­i­ta­tion from BDRC Con­ti­nen­tal, the UK’s largest in­de­pen­dent re­search agency, based on feed­back and how likely or­gan­i­sa­tions are to rec­om­mend the venue for a con­fer­ence or event.

The lat­est re­sults mean Mot­tram Hall has held the award for over a year as it was awarded through­out 2016.
