    IT'S THE MIDDLE OF FRENZIED WEDDING SEASON...

    SO MY FRIEND (OLI KELLETT) AND I SHOT A PICTURE SERIES.

    IT AIMS TO HIGHLIGHT THE SEXISM OF THE TRADITIONAL WEDDING. 

    BRILLIANTLY LOADS OF COUPLES ARE MAKING THE CEREMONY THEIR OWN AND CHANGING THESE THINGS.

    BUT IT'S STILL FASCINATING JUST HOW SEXIST THE FOUNDATIONS TO TODAYS CEREMONIES ARE.

    WOMEN OFTEN DO MOST OF THE PLANNING AND ORGANISING LEADING UP TO THE BIG DAY.

    ASKING THE FATHERS PERMISSION, IT'S BASICALLY TWO MEN DECIDING ON A WOMANS FATE.

    IF THE BRIDES PARENTS PAY IT'S THE MODERN EQUIVALENT OF A DOWRY.

    THE FATHER GIVES THE BRIDE AWAY, ONE MAN HANDING OWNERSHIP TO ANOTHER.

    ONLY THE FATHERS NAME AND TRADE IS LISTED ON THE MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE. SERIOUSLY!

    TRADITIONALLY THE WOMEN DON'T DO SPEECHES - JUST THE MEN. 

    AND OF COURSE, THE BRIDE WEARS WHITE TO SYMBOLISE HER UNTOUCHED VIRGINITY.
