Loredana and Andrew's wedding - Star of the Sea Chapel and The Baths, Brighton.

I treat every wedding as a unique event and not just another day at work with different people in the same poses. For me, weddings are about emotion and story, that's what I want to capture - as they say in the film world 'keep it real'. I listen to the couple and their ideas for the day and integrate this into my photojournalism style. When people suggest that a wedding is a contrived event I disagree, in fact once it's stage managed the life and joy gets lost - so in addition to 'keep it real' I say 'keep it flowing' and 'keep it beautiful'.

Loredana and Andrew are experienced sailors, so their wedding day was centred around the beach. The ceremony was at the Star of the Sea College chapel followed by a reception at the Brighton Baths, close by, great views, great food and staff.
