All Of The Most Inspired Wedding Photos Of 2019 That Might Help Inspire Your Quarantine Wedding
Updated by editor May 21, 2020.
Every two months the Fearless Awards recognize the best wedding photos in the world. The winning images are selected by a panel of expert curators from Fearless Photographers, a digital platform that connects couples with wedding photographers.
Last year we looked forward to the weddings that took place from the month of July to December and were carefully selected for the awards. Sadly, this year we’re certain the wedding photos will be quite a bit different. As the current coronavirus pandemic forces wedding cancellations couples and weddings vendors stand to lose quite a bit. The pandemic hit at the worst time for many: wedding season leaving brides and grooms scrambling to make new arrangements and ways to mark their big day.
If you’ve decided to not let the pandemic rain on your parade and instead, go forward with a wedding like many have opted to do. Take a look at these wedding photos from 2019 that topped the Fearless Awards.
Lucha Libre Style
Nothing like including the things you love on such a special day. This groom made sure that his love of Lucha Libre was known, and gave all of the members of his entourage, their own Luchador mask. Gotta love the originality.
A Mariachi Wedding
Here’s a clear example of how a traditional wedding does not have to be conventional. This couple stuck to their roots and decided to give the event a very Mexican dress code with these Mariachi outfits —brb, just gonna look for a groom real quick so I can dress him up as a charro.
An emotional moment
There can’t be a wedding without tears —of joy that is. This photo is so heartwarming it has tears welling up in my eyes.
Making the most of a destination wedding
I mean, if you have a place like Santorini as the backdrop for your wedding, no picture can really be a bad one. But tAlex Beckett, the photographer of this gem, used a beautiful play of light and shadow to create the magnified-effect of the married couple against a classic Greek house; dreamy.
Another epic destination wedding shot
Ana Maria Dumbrava
Again, if the wedding is being held at an amazing geographical location, the pictures are just going to be pure gold. This one here, with the happy couple, playfully sliding down the dunes is absolute goals —but also, there’s got to be a lot of sand in those clothes.
Everything about this photo gives us chills. The energy, the colors, the vibrancy; it’s like we can feel the love through our screen. Can you?
An unconventional couple
Some people have dessert tables at their weddings, others have board games, some offer boat rides or wild cocktails. Not this couple, they had a whole fair ride at their wedding. And the shot of them both riding at full speed is really a beauty.
A chill wedding by the lake
Juan Carballo Castro
More often than not, brides have the fame of being crazy, controlling, perfectionist maniacs. Not this one. Her entourage had already removed their gowns and jumped into the lake. We can only suspect that she’s about to do the same —and the mood of peace and fun that this photo is transmitting, really is making us question our fictitious wedding plans.
Ok so I’m crying now. Have you ever seen a photo that captures the essence of female love, companionship, empowerment and sorority more beautifully than this one by Jake Hannah? Okay, maybe you have, but this one is truly moving.
Otherworldly wedding vibes
This photo was actually taken in Brazil, but because of the visual effect, you could swear it was somewhere icy like Iceland or Canada. The couple seem to be walking on water, bathed in sunlight, and if that’t not an ideal metaphor for a happy marriage, then we don’t know what is.
Crying again. Few things beat a deep father-daughter moment. Crazy to think that this man was about to give this woman, who once was his very own little girl, away. I’m weeping.
Another laid back couple. Look at all that joy. A beautiful sunset, a happy moment, all smiles and warmth —we can almost feel the tropical weather just looking at it.
A mother’s love
This is the visual definition of ‘tears of joy’. This abuelita holds on to her little girl; happily squeezing her, excited because finally, on this nieta’s case, she’ll never have to ask “¿Y el novio?” again.
Celebrate your culture
We loved to see other cultures represented in the list of top wedding photos of the year. Not all brides wear white, some wear every color in the rainbow and this bright photo is really lighting up our day.
The couple’s best friend
Doggo parents will understand. One cannot simply get married and leave their best friend behind —and this good boy is clearly not ready to let go.
