What exactly is reportage wedding photography?

My friend and sponsor of the English Wedding Blog, Andrew from Lightworks Photography Cambridge, has written a lovely article all about reportage photography. He explains clearly and engagingly what you should be looking for, and the mistakes a less experienced photographer will make.
