About the Event

The awards ceremony and workshop will take place in The Black Box venue in Belfast, 20th November 2018. This will be the first independent Irish wedding photography awards. It will be an event run for wedding photographers, by wedding photographers. It will take place alongside a full day wedding photography workshop, and is open to anyone who wishes to come.  Entries for the 'Irish Wedding Photographer of the Year awards' will be accepted via the website   as of September. 

Our aim is to celebrate the great and the good within our wee industry here in Ireland, to award fine, artistic and creative work, to seek creative genius and originality, to bring to the limelight some of the up and coming photographers, to gather together a tribe of like-souled photographers and immerse ourselves in the positivity and potential.

2018 will be the beginning of a great journey. The dream is to make this awards ceremony into the social and creative highlight of the Irish photography calendar. Learning to Fly aims to educate and communicate the good news to creatives and dreamers around the land. We endeavour to help and heal, to undo some of the pain that life may have inflicted, to squeeze the potential out of anyone that volunteers themselves to the cause and to aid self-development. The awards project hopes to play a massive part of this in 2018.

This day event will also consist of 6 inspirational talks from some of the lands finest wedding photographers - on-stage, bearing their lives and their souls, willing to A your Qs, and to point you in the direction you seek. A massive portfolio of printed images will be displayed on the walls within the venue to stir the creative fuel within. There will be fine art albums to view and smell, leather covers and paper types to induce a pleasure-filled trance like state (!)
