Katherine and Mark's wedding - St Peter's church, Brighton and The Baths, Brighton.

If you look at bridal magazines or get caught up in the insanity of wedding expos you will notice that wedding photography has a look, you could call it the 'bridal look'. It's kind of soft and nice, and kind of weird and manufactured at the same time - having mentioned the wedding industry I just have to add, what is the 'trash the dress' thing all about! Who really is going to trash their Vera Wang? Come on! Anyway, where was I, oh yeah the bridal look, well I try to avoid this look and therefore don't read wedding magazines, preferring to find inspiration in editorial work - magazines like Country Style, Gourmet Traveller, Vogue or even National Geographic. I want to tell a story when I photograph a wedding, show the event, the details, the guests and the bride and groom. It's about the day not simply the couple.

So Katherine and Mark where married in a small church in Brighton, the reception followed at the close by Brighton Baths, a great place with excellent service, food and views.
