Worth £3000

It’s time for me to do it again and give something back! I’m offering one lucky couple the chance to Win Your Wedding Photography with me worth £3000. The competition is open to everyone whenever or wherever you’re planning your big day.


I'll be there for the whole day making sure to capture all the best moments from across a day that will be one of the best days ever!


I can only be in one place at a time. Having a second photographer there on the day means I can be in two places at once! Unbroken coverage in the morning, more angles and candid moments through the day.


Get to know me, get comfortable in front of the camera, have fun and get some incredible images of the two of you before the celebrations even start!


This year I'm also including a £200 credit towards getting an album printed with me. Storybooks start at just £275 so it's a great deal, but you can also use the credit against the fancy-schmancy fine art books too!


Your edited hi-res images will be available to download from a beautiful online gallery and comes with rights to share and print for personal use. Buy prints and share images with friends and family right from inside the private gallery.


Travel to anywhere mainland UK will be covered. Those getting married abroad can still enter but you will need to cover my travel. You will need to cover my travel for the pre-shoot too unless you can make it to the Manchester area for that.

The Giveaway

Rachel & Huw (above) were the lucky winners of my Win Your Wedding Photography givaway last year and because it felt so good shooting their wedding for free, I’ve decided to do it again this year! I’m so grateful to all the couples who trust me to capture their big day for them and being able to give something back is important to me. It helps me address the balance of give and take in my life!

For a second year running I’m giving away a full days coverage of wedding photography to one lucky couple, including;

  • Coverage from getting ready to the first dance
  • Informal consultation
  • Full resolution edited photos
  • Online gallery

If you’re not yet familiar with my photography style then a good place to start is my best of 2017 to get a feel for what I do.

How to enter

  1. Like my Facebook page, like and comment on one of the competition images (sharing isn’t required but helps me get the minimum number of entries, so in turn helps you!)

Closing date for entries is 12th March but the right to extend this is reserved if the minimum number of entries isn’t met. Only one entry per wedding will be considered. You must have a confirmed date and venue at the time of entering. Your wedding can be anywhere in the world but weddings outside of the North West UK will be subject to travel and accommodation fees (if needed). Winners will be selected by me and notified by email. The winners agree to have their wedding images featured. Only entries with wedding dates I currently have available are eligible. If I am already booked on your date you will be informed by email which will include exclusive offers from specially selected photographers. By entering you agree to have your details shared for this purpose. This competition is not open to couples who have already booked their wedding photography with me.


Use the form below to enter, once you click ‘submit’ you’ll be taken to a page to confirm your entry and give you some tips to increase your chances of winning!



Terms, conditions and extra info,

Yadda yadda, blah de blah,
But seriously…

Your wedding date and venue/location must be confirmed or in the process of becoming confirmed.

Entries will only be accepted by the couple getting married and only one entry form will be accepted per wedding. You can both help however increase your chances will extra public sharing. Once you submit your entry you’ll be redirected to a page with more info on that.

The engagement shoot can be adapted to include your family, children or pets. If you’re not able to get to the Manchester area on a mutually agreed date then my travel costs will need to be covered to your chosen location.

A minimum number of entries are required for a winner to be announced so please share PUBLICLY on social media.

The winning couple/wedding will be chosen at random once the min number of entries has been achieved.

If I’m not available for your wedding date I aim to notify you before the competition closes but can’t guarantee this due to a potential high number of entries.

You agree to be contacted by email, text message of phone call with regards to this competition.

All travel expenses to mainland UK will be covered. Weddings abroad will incur travel fees. It may not be possible to provide a second photographer for destination weddings.

The competition is open to couples who have already booked with me but should you win your booking fee is still non-refundable.

If I’m not available for your wedding date then you agree to have your details shared with a select few quality wedding photographers who may be able to help with your wedding and make you an offer. These will be photographers I personally recommend and your details will not be shared for any other purpose. See my privacy policy for details on how your data is used and stored.

Unlimited coverage means a mutually agreed time to cover morning preparations and until a mutually agreed time in the evening, so that all major events of the wedding are covered, for example, prep until the first dance or the first set of your wedding band. It’s typically up to 12 hours and depends on your wedding but Mike Plunkett Photography reserves the right to have final say on number of hours worked and breaks taken during the day. I’m only human!

The winners agree to have their images used for marketing purposes, online and in print.

I’ll look forward to receiving your entry. Good Luck!!
