Sophisticated Wedding Party in Brighton

Sophisticated Wedding Party in Brighton


Christine and Tai actually got married in San Francisco where they live but they returned to Tai’s hometown of Brighton for a big old party to celebrate their marriage. I met them at that most iconic of Brighton hotels, The Grand before we had a couple of mini photo sessions – first on the beach and then up in Brunswick Square where Tai hung out as a kid. We joined all their guests at a local restaurant where the brilliant florist Kate Langdale had set up some gorgeous displays. Then it was time for my favourite US wedding tradition, cocktail hour and an outfit change for the bride.

Sometimes in our lives, we all have pain, we all have sorrow. But if we are wise, we know there’s ALWAYS TOMORROW…

Drinks Reception at Marylebone Town Hall

Drinks Reception at Marylebone Town Hall

Let’s face it, weddings are expensive. Every single part of them so here’s an idea that one couple used to have the best value drinks reception in all of London. Rose and Rohan are New Zealanders currently living in London and they wanted a super low key but fun wedding. They booked me for just a few hours for their wedding at Marylebone Town Hall, one super rainy October afternoon. I met them at the venue, shot the ceremony and some pictures inside and then confetti on the steps – the usual kind of thing.

They bought some bottles of champagne and disposable flutes and held their drinks reception right there, on the steps of the Registry Office. It was the cutest thing. I love working with laid back couples and this pair must be right up there with the most relaxed I’ve ever shot. I have to say, it was super fun and proves that you don’t have to have a fancy venue to have a wedding. I should point out – They did only have a handful of guests and they did head to a nice restaurant afterwards.

Funny but I always seem to wind up here with you. Nice to know somebody loves me. Funny but it seems it’s the only thing to do. Run and find the one that loves me …
