Oh I do like to be beside the sea side…oh I do like to be beside the sea. Brighton is the most magical place. It seems to be the home of the most incredible light, atmosphere and ice cream. I’m a regular visitor, whether that be for work or play and it is becoming a second home to me. It’s no secret that I love photographing Brighton weddings. I can completely understand why you have chosen Brighton for your wedding and i’d love to be a part of it. I’ve spent a lot of time strolling up and down Brighton pier, sitting on the beach listening to the waves and trying to hide my chips from very greedy seagulls. 

Whilst i’m not based in the south of the country, I will always leap at the chance to visit (mostly for the incredible food you can find there). I don’t charge extra for travel to Brighton so dont worry, there are no additional charges.

If you have chosen to get married in Brighton, then you’ll have noticed that there are a huge variety of different wedding venues to suit all tastes. I have photographed tipi weddings, weddings in boutique restaurants and sea front restaurants. I’ve worked several times at Brighton Registry Office and know all the great spots to make the most our photography opportunities.

Brighton is a really popular location for couples who want to get married near the seaside but don’t necessarily live there. if that’s you, here are some top tips on long distance wedding planning…

1. Book a few lovely long weekends together by the sea to scout out some venues, choose your suppliers and eat some ice cream. There are a ton of great places to stay, including some really quirky airbnbs close to the sea front. Parking can be a little tricky and very expensive in 

Brighton so it might be useful to consider getting the train. The train from London takes about an hour and the station is right in the centre of town with easy access to all of the fun stuff. 

2. Once you’ve found your venue, make the most of their local knowledge and ask for supplier recommendations. They will have worked with lots of great, local people and will be able to advise you on who can offer the services that you’re looking for. 

3. It can be helpful to make a little guide for your guests to help them choose accommodation and organise their travel arrangements. 

If your guests know what to expect on the day, it will prevent delays or people getting lost.

4. Work with your suppliers to create a timeline that allows you to enjoy the experience of being in Brighton. A jam packed schedule can mean that the day passes by in the blink of an eye and you wont have had any time to drink it all in. Allowing a good chunk of time for your photos is also super important because you’ll want to take advantage of the beautiful coast line and the quirky spots around time. 

5. Public transport is your friend. Everything is quite close together in Brighton but it’s more ideal for a leisurely stroll, rather than walking to and from locations on your wedding day. Brighton has a ton of Ubers available within minutes so rather than worrying about parking, using them is much more convenient.
