Brighton Gay Wedding Photography

Brighton is well regarded as the gay capital of the UK and also a creative hub for all things niche. Many gay couples travel across the country to say their vows and celebrate their marriage & civil partnership in Brighton.  So Brighton makes the ideal creative and gay destination for a wedding / civil ceremony and also an ideal place to have your photography undertaken by none other than Shotgun Weddings!

As Brightons principle gay wedding photography team, we can boast a large number of gay weddings jobs behind us and have developed a real niche within this type of photography.

The skills remain the same of course: technical nous with a camera, an eye for capturing magic and a shared vision with our customers.
