A scorcher of a day on the South Coast made for a great atmosphere in the recently renovated Brighton Bandstand. It’s an iconic spot to tie the knot, overlooking Brighton beach and the famous old West Pier.
Kellie got ready in the Granville Hotel, based right on the seafront, and from the balcony of the room you could see the Bandstand being prepared for the wedding ceremony in the morning.
Nicola & James married at the well known and picturesque St. Margaret’s Church Rottingdean, on the South coast a few miles East of Brighton. Through his work as a conductor, James was able to call in a few favours which resulted in an orchestra providing live music from the gallery in St. Margarets! They practiced in the morning and drew quite a crowd as the locals drifted by to listen. During the ceremony, the music and the church acoustics combined to provide a stunning soundtrack to a lovely wedding.
Lucy & Sam had a traditional ceremony in the picturesque Buildwas Church which they decorated themselves with homemade hearts made from ivy and coat hangers.
Lucy & Sam’s dog Bella was present throughout the day and it was important to the couple that she featured in the photographs.
The wedding breakfast and reception were held in the Park House Hotel where the dancing went long into the night.
