Sunset Engagement Shoot in Brighton

Sunset Engagement Shoot in Brighton

There are so many incredible places to do a sunset engagement shoot around Brighton. Of course the beach is the obvious place but I like to take my couples to the spots that are not so well known. These cliffs are a great example and, and they can look incredible if we get a pretty sunset. TCan you believe that they are actually right next to a busy main road? However, if you are careful with framing you can eliminate the cars, and just get a beautiful view of the beach and the cliffs.

This shoot was a collaboration with the wonderful Alexandra at The Bijou Studio. I’m a huge fan of her style, it’s relaxed but sharp, her eye for detail is incredible and working with her is super inspiring. I want her to come and style my entire life. Alas she is too busy with her successful wedding planning business, dang!

Thanks to Poppy Tallulah for doing a sterling job on both hair and makeup and to our couple, Duncan and Rachel.

If you are thinking about where to have your Brighton Engagement Shoot, hit me up, I love doing these. If you are currently searching for a venue for your Brighton wedding or elopement, I have a list packed full of great venues, some of which might not be so obvious without some insider knowledge.

How To Have a Luxe London Elopement

How To Have a Luxe London Elopement


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 …
