Paul’s image was chosen out of the 26 entrants by over 1000 members of the public in two voting forums; the Winter Bridal Ideas Fair, where the entrants’ images were printed on a 20x24inch paper and visitors to the fair were asked to pick their favorite, and on-line at our voting website.
Paul won with 18% of the total vote, but was not the most popular at the Bridal Fair. Kerin Burford was second, and most popular at the Bridal Fair and B Captured by Ky Luu third. Voting was very close and all entrants received similar votes, mirroring our opinion of the high standard of this years’ entrants.
A stunning change to the prize offering for this year, Brides of Adelaide are offering a double page spread as an alternative prize to the $1000 cash!

Why choose a professional wedding photographer?
One of the sad stories we often see, is the wedding photographed by an amateur photographer. Our production staff spend many hours a week trying to make the best out of a sad mess of precious photos. Think about it, your wedding is one of the most important events of your life, and not long afterwards if becomes a fading memory, perhaps you will remember the highlights of the day, but for how long? Memory is a funny thing, quite often all the details are locked up in your head and it seems all you need to free it up is a sound, or a smell, or a picture… There is nothing like a photograph to open the flood gates of distant memories, and cause it all to flow back. Now imagine if you asked Uncle Harry to “take a few snaps” at the church, and the snaps, whilst not a disaster, are very ordinary.
How do you think Uncle Harry felt on the day with the pressure to record such an event for you? How do you think looking at those pictures will make you feel? What memories will they invoke? A professional photographer on your wedding day will give you those memories and that piece of mind. Fill your future life with a beautiful record of that day, you and your family will always be thankful.
