Reportage wedding photography has my heart. In the 10 years since English Wedding began I’ve seen thousands of weddings. They all have a story, they’re all personal and unique and beautiful. And the images which capture the spirit and story of a wedding are the images which will stand the test of time. Always.

So it’s with genuine pleasure that I’d like to introduce you to one of my favourite reportage wedding photographers in the UK. Sussex wedding photographer Martin Beddall specialises in reportage photography (otherwise known as documentary wedding photography, or wedding photojournalism) – his website is a brilliant place to go to see what reportage wedding photography is all about.

I love this wedding – it’s beautiful, relaxed and so wonderfully summery! I can’t believe it was planned in less than 6 months! Tessa is so beautiful and wears her dress with the prettiest lace jacket for the ceremony, which she takes off for the reception to show off the lovely strapless style of the gown underneath.

The styling and special touches on the day make it even more special: I love the picnic baskets for the main meal – that’s genius for a marquee or picnic / festival inspired wedding! The chalkboard lettering is wonderful, the flowers are divine – and the pot plants adding extra splashes of green are a hint of one of 2018’s foremost wedding trends!
