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 – St. Margaret’s Rottingdean

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 a decent sized 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.
