TIME magazine has recently reported on a new wedding magazine, Catalyst, that aims to challenge traditional assumptions about how a wedding should be planned, as well as offering guidance for those preparing for their special day.
The new publication is the brainchild of wedding planner Liz Susong and photographer Carly Romeo, which they say celebrates love and marriage whilst at the same time casting a critical eye over the process.
The pair say they felt there was something missing from conventional wedding magazines and believed there to be a market for alternative views discussing such topics as dieting and the very nature of monogamy. They are also aiming to offer readers some helpful DIY advice that will be particularly beneficial for future brides and grooms.
After holding what they have termed an ‘un}convention’, the pair raised thousands of dollars through Kickstarter to help fund the printing of the new magazine.
Two print issues are funded so far, but the publication is also available online. Its creators believe it could have a long shelf life, with Romeo telling TIME magazine:
“We don’t have a shortage of content at all. The demand and interest has been so encouraging. It is going to keep growing.”
A top wedding photographer from North West England knows better than most that weddings can come in all shapes and sizes, and it can only be a good thing for the industry to have wide array of voices catering for all potential brides and grooms.
