About the Masters
Since 2016, the Masters of Wedding Photography has presented the most prestigious awards for professional wedding photographers in the UK & Ireland every quarter. This allows us to create an up-to-date and honest listing of the best contemporary wedding photography for couples.
The Masters of Wedding Photography awards offer a solution for bridal couples who are looking for high-quality photography for their wedding day. The wedding photographers who have won the most awards over a year are listed here, sorted by region.
The wedding photographers who can be found through the Masters are all passionate professionals who want to get the most out of themselves to be able to hand their bridal couples a great report time and time again.
Wedding photography is a specialty. Capturing a complete wedding day with all its special and emotional moments is also seen as the top sport within photography. Not a moment should be missed, nothing can be done again.
A wedding day is not only about the bridal couple. It is a special gathering of family and friends in which love and commitment are celebrated. Photography on a wedding day will also have to reflect that. A specialised wedding photographer can do this like no other.
Every professional wedding photographer has his own style of photography. The photographers' profile pages feature extensive portfolios, with the first photos that have won awards. Compare the photographers to choose the style that suits you best. The photographer can be contacted directly via the profile page to ask if he is still available on your wedding day.
If you're looking for a list of the best wedding photographers in the UK and Ireland, then you've come to the right place. Every quarter, thousands of photos are submitted by hundreds of professional wedding photographers to be judged by an ever-changing jury of top international photographers. This creates an overview at the end of the year of photographers who have won the most awards over a whole year. Art, creativity and quality are of course difficult to assess, but the Masters seems to have found a way to draw up a fair gauge for this.
In addition to many award-winning photographers, there are also specialised wedding photographers on our website who have no or few awards to their name and do not regularly submit their photos to win awards. Winning awards is certainly not the most important thing there is and for many photographers it is not a priority to participate. Because the Masters is more than just an awards ceremony, all wedding photographers are welcome. The masters is a community for wedding photographers in the Benelux, where they can develop and meet colleagues. Learning together, talking about the profession and the occasional drink for socialising are things that most independent photographers find very enjoyable and important about the Masters community. Together we work hard to deliver the highest possible quality to all bridal couples who find photography important at their wedding.

Why the Masters?
Masters of wedding photography is an absolute power brand in the awards scene, judged by some of the very best photographers in the industry. It’s a competition of high credibility and one I will continue entering for years to come. Awards are important to me and not just from a positive marketing point of view they push me to better myself as an artist and the feeling of achieving through accolades inspires me.
I’ve been involved in a number of photography competitions over the years both as an entrant and a judge and what I like about Masters in particular is the international element. As a judge it’s incredible to see different styles of images from around the world and as an entrant to the UK competition it’s really interesting to see which images prove to be universal in the way they connect with people in other countries and other cultures.
Entering the Masters awards motivates me to look more critically at my own work and strive to improve and create new work at every wedding. It's really helped me to stay relevant in an ever changing industry, given clients confidence in my brand and provided me with something to be proud of!
