I’m excited to show you some images from this Minimony wedding in Brighton. What’s a Minimony? It’s a small wedding ceremony that you have before your big wedding celebration for various different reasons. This pair had the big wedding planned for New Year’s Eve with a Drag Queen as the celebrant so they still needed to do the ‘legal bit’. They decided to make it a small but special celebration and after their ceremony in the Registry Office at Brighton Town Hall with just very close family.
We took a little stroll around Brighton for their portrait session, finding interesting backgrounds that complimented their attire. Seriously though, we need to talk about how amazing their outfits were for this part of their wedding. They are both huge fans of Drag and the bride’s dress featured the legendary Divine. Oh my!
Thinking of having your own Minimony or Micro wedding in Brighton? I have a super useful list of possible venues over on this page that might be worth considering.
For their small, micro wedding in Brighton, Amanda and Humberto chose to meet at the Town Hall and walk into their ceremony together. With just very close family and friends attending, it was a perfectly intimate and joyful wedding day. After confetti and a few group photos outside the registry office, we took a taxi to some locations for a photoshoot. It was super fun and when we were done, we joined their guests at The Salt Room for champagne and cake. Then as they served dinner, my short coverage was finished.
I love you Sunday sun, the week’s not yet begun and everything is quiet and it’s always YOU AND ME always and forever …
This glamorous couple had a luxe, laid back elopement in London. They simply married at their nearest town hall with just the two of them and two witnesses. Then I met up with them for a two hour photo shoot. We drove around town in a chauffeur driven white Roll Royce, stopping to shoot at some iconic London landmarks. Then we headed back to the luxury of their incredible suite at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. They were the first to stay in it after it had been redecorated so everything was brand new. It is such a sophisticated and elegant space with gorgeous light. We drank champagne and then shot around the hotel before they went off to meet their friends for dinner.
They kept all the planning low key but ramped up the glamour and spent their day together, laughing and kissing and making the most of their time together. They didn’t have to please anyone else or rush about. It was very fun and very chic.
And so it is, just like you said it would be. Life goes easy on me, most of the time. And so it is, the SHORTER STORY, no love, no glory, no hero in her sky …
