A Simple Brighton Wedding: Holly & Patrick

Holly & Patrick were married in Brighton. They didn’t really stick to a particular theme for their wedding, they simply included things they love. They wanted to keep the day simple and stress-free, as the bride explains, “We didn’t have a theme, and we didn’t say anything had to be a certain way. My dress was handmade on me, through chatting, drawings and ideas, by my friend Aimee who trained at London College of Fashion. Patrick chose his suit because he was definite that he wanted a ‘mod’ suit. It was all done very organically, and it was perfect. Somebody suggested I wear a long sleeve, high necked dress to cover my tattoos but I declined the suggestion and went for as low a back as possible.”

“I handmade all the invitations and the place names/wedding favours. This was to cut out unnecessary costs and because I love being creative. I used Brighton beach pebbles and decorated them with 3D copper paint with guests names on. As a treat we both also had a complimentary pre-wedding pamper (facial) from Elemis in their Brighton Spa-Pod – which was a gift from our photographers Horse and Carriage Wedding Photography.”

Thank you to Holly & Patrick and their photographers  Horse and Carriage for sharing these with us today.

    Thank you for such a lovely feature of our wedding. I’d like to just point out that Patrick’s suit was from Jump the Gun, not Topman. (Shirt and tie from Topman). Thank you again 🙂

  2. I don’t usually comment, but this beautiful wedding seriously gave me the tingles. How in LOVE do this couple look? I know you’re meant to look loved up on your wedding day, you’d be screwed if not, but Holly & Patrick look seriously besotted. Gorgeous moments captured by clearly an amazing photographer!

  3. i bet they are very very happy with these photos. It really looks like it is just their special day – what a lovely setting too, i absolutely LOVE Brighton.
