A comical shot of a newlywed couple pulling faces as they attempt to cut a wedding cake aflame with cake fountains has won the Champagne Taittinger ‘Wedding Food Photographer’ category of Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year.

“Normally weddings run to plan, but it’s really fun to capture the moments where things go a little off script,” says John Armstrong-Millar, an Irish photographer who has lived near Bordeaux for over 15 years.
