Wedding panties photo wins award

I really just want to share this story because of the bride's beautiful shoes.

A saucy snap of a bride with her knickers around her ankles has helped a wedding photographer scoop a prestigious award.

Michael Dearden's shot of 38-year-old Angela Lancaster landed him UK Master Photographer of the Year 2010 at this year's Master Photographer awards. Angela said: "We had an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding and wanted to show that in an off-the-wall way.

"I knew Michael's pictures could be quite risque.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, panties. Who can see panties when the bride is wearing flower-encrusted mary janes? Excuse me while my teenage heart goes pitter patter.

"My husband was shocked because the first he knew about it was when he saw the proofs of the pictures."

The black and white image was taken at Angela's wedding to Gareth Thomas, 39, in Cardiff this year. It was said by judges to "push the creative boundaries" of photography. Michael, of Caerphilly, South Wales, also won best Contemporary Wedding Photographer at the Birmingham ceremony.

That photo won the Contemporary Wedding award and UK Master Photographer of the Year.

Here's the Classical Wedding winner Mark Bryce:

This photo is really beautiful too. I absolutely love the modest tea-length gown with the full skirt and GLOVES! So traditional and beautiful.

Well, that's enough wedding porn for today. Enjoy your weekend!
