A Brighton Bandstand Wedding
Let's meet our couple – Katie, a software project manager, and Oliver, a civil engineer. They were married on 21 July 2018 inside a ceremony at then drinks nearby – all just steps from the beach, as well as an evening reception, followed.
"I was raised near Brighton and saw the bandstand being restored. As a couple, we’ve spent considerable time in Brighton together and loved the thought of getting married inside such a beautiful setting, right around the seafront, that people can revisit a city that holds many great memories for all of us. We chose Brighton College once we wanted outside space along with a venue we're able to make our very own but still be inside the city."
The bridesmaid dresses wore mint green dresses with glittery embroidery from their very own shoes and accessories, and flowers within their hair thanks to the florist.
"We desired to incorporate a Scottish & Irish wild coastal feel towards the flowers to represent different sides in our families and our recent proceed to Edinburgh."
I love Katie's selection of gowns, which she ordered online, with alterations taken proper care of at Brighton. The combination from the 1960s inspired a floral lace bodice using the long, flowing pleated crepe skirt.
"I loved the design and style, the high neck, heavy lace detail, and pleated skirt using the slit. I tried on other more expensive options but it was the dress that felt probably something I would wear and never too bridal!"
Katie and Oliver first met in a gig in London before becoming engaged on a holiday with friends to Iceland in March 2017 – they were married 17 months later.
Whilst exchanging their vows searching over the beach, the pair also gave each other rings, that they had engineered and produced by an Edinburgh-based jeweler.
We possess the highly valued and extremely talented to thank for these creative and contemporary images. I particularly love the framing of plenty of these shots, especially around the bandstand in most of its highly decorated Victorian neo-gothic glory, and exactly how Matt makes the most from the sublime coastal light.
"Matt made everyone feel relaxed throughout the day coupled with an eye for that shots/photographs that perfectly captured your day and framed the locations beautifully. We loved Matt’s relaxed approach, he was great at getting all of the important shots and moments without intruding on any of them or which makes them feel staged."
After the ceremony it had been over towards the cheery beachfront cafe, the Meeting Place for ice-cold fizz in the summertime sunshine before the double-decker bus whisked them over the city to Brighton College to carry on the celebrations, starting with lawn games within the college's courtyard.
As the balmy summer day came to some close, guests relaxed outside in deck chairs, and a fun Boomerang photo booth was set up, too.
"It would be a great addition to some normal photo booth and was great getting out of bed to see people's creativity on Instagram the following day!"
Words of Wedded Wisdom
"It was important that our guests were built with a great time on our day and that we wanted the marriage to seem like ours. Think about what you look for to do and never worry an excessive amount about what people expect."
