Capturing natural romantic shots has won wedding photographer Alaina Thornton a top award.

She’s been named Most Romantic Wedding Photographer (South West England) in the 2022 Global Wedding Awards.

The Blandford-based owner of AJ Photographic received the award for the way in which she, and her team, engage with each wedding couple.

The judges highlighted how natural romantic shots were encouraged, providing “stunning imagery which really reflects the beauty of the day.

“By adding the personal touch, they have the ability to capture memories which last a lifetime,” the citation added.

The LUXlife 2022 Global Wedding Awards were initially launched in 2016 to bring together the finest businesses within the wedding industry.

The awards work on the basis of merit and quality.

There must be evidence of extensive expertise and skills, dedication to customer service and client satisfaction with an ongoing commitment to excellence and innovation.

She said: “I am thrilled to achieve the award for ‘Most Romantic Wedding Photographer’ .

“I always add so much passion into my work with each individual couple to personalise their day and really capture the romantic moments.

“From the staged official photographs, to the natural moments behind the scenes we always endeavour to capture the beauty of the day.”

With the global wedding industry expecting the biggest surge in demand for more than 40 years, this summer is expected to be booming with brides and grooms tying the knot.
