Colourful, Relaxed Brighton Seaside Wedding

Emma and Josh met at college when they were 16, fell in love, and just 18 years later, decided to marry! They wanted a super chilled, relaxed wedding, full of bright colours, without any fuss. With a chippie lunch and ice cream dessert, they had a fun, laid back seaside wedding in Brighton.

Emma told us, “It was a running joke that we would never get married, then when Josh finally proposed I got straight onto the planning and booked March 2020, but then Covid happened… So our invites, as well as my jacket said, ‘At Last’, and we continued the theme through to the processional music, Etta James At Last, which raised a chuckle! The whole ceremony was light-hearted and full of laughter.”

Super Cute Clifftop Engagement Shoot in Brighton

Ahead of their big wedding day in China featuring a traditional tea ceremony, Anna and Alex decided to have some engagement pictures taken in Brighton with Manon Pauffin. The suuuuuuper cute results are below!

“In China, it is popular to do a pre-wedding shoot to show your photos at the wedding because on the big day it’s often too busy to have photos of just the two of us,” Anna explains. “For us, this shoot was like a wedding present to ourselves to capture the sweet moment of our love story forever, and it gave us a chance to enjoy some time together and just be who we are.”

Intimate 1950s Inspired Brighton Wedding With Only 10 Guests

Gemma and Tom’s gorgeous Brighton wedding proves that sometimes size isn’t everything. They celebrated with only ten members of their immediate family and had the intimate wedding of their dreams, with a small dinner following their ceremony. They had a loose theme of 1950s burlesque, romance and Hollywood glam.

“We knew Brighton was the perfect backdrop for some stunning photos we would treasure forever,” Gemma explains. “We got ready at The Artists’ Residence and then our ceremony was held in the Regency Room in Brighton Town Hall. My Grandad walked me down the aisle to Heroes by David Bowie – and bless him, he stood on my dress as I was walking into the room! Everyone gasped as they thought I was about to stack it but luckily I managed to get through it with my dignity and dress intact. My favourite part of the wedding was seeing everyone’s faces as I walked/tripped into the room!”

Laidback Vegan Wedding in Brighton

Violet and Jacob didn’t choose the plant life, the plant life chose them. And that’s why their super chilled Brighton wedding day was a totally vegan affair with tons of gorgeous donuts, pizzas and other goodies. They married in a low key, intimate ceremony with just 35 guests at Brighton Town Hall, with part one of their reception following in the coffee shop where they first met. By approaching their styling in a laidback way and their family and friends all pulling together to provide various services, they managed to create this gorgeous day for under £5,000.

Violet said, “Our aim for the wedding was to have a really nice day and throw a big (ish) party in celebration of our love, surrounded by our favourite people and eating great food. To us it didn’t make sense to eat food we’d never eaten before, or throw a party somewhere we weren’t familiar with, so we chose to give our guests food we knew we loved and took them to places that meant something to us. Part of our reception was held at Bond St. Coffee, where we met, which is owned by a friend of ours. We’ve met so many wonderful people here, some of whom were at the wedding. Most of our suppliers were friends of ours and people we know, so I guess friendship and community was a big part of it. We also didn’t have any bridesmaids or groomsmen in the traditional way, and there was no seating arrangement, so it was all very relaxed.”

Disco Love Kid’s Party Wedding in Brighton

Michaela and Dave both love going out and dancing and so wanted their wedding to have that same feel. Their theme was ‘ A Disco Love Kid’s Party’ full of entertaining things to bring people together. They had face painting, a photo booth, colouring in and pick and mix! Ultimately, they wanted the wedding to feel like the most fun night out you can imagine and all in honour of their love. 

They decided to only keep traditions that suited them. They had no sit down meal, the only speech was made by themselves, Michaela’s mum and dad walked her down the aisle and they both took each other’s names.

“I was so nervous before the ceremony that I couldn’t remember my age to tell the officiant,” Michaela laughed. “In our vows we included everything we felt was important for our lives together. We also added the last sentence which is what Leslie Knope and Ben Wyatt say to each other on Parks and Recreation as they are our couple goals… ‘I love you and I like you’. I walked into the Scala choir version of Teenage Dirtbag which means a lot to me since we were both misfit teenagers who feel lucky to have met each other and fallen in love (and mutual respect).”

Colourful & Fun Brighton Wedding with a Christian Ceremony

Colourful & Fun Brighton Wedding with a Christian Ceremony (19)

The most important part of the wedding day for Katherine and Andrew was the ceremony. Both Christians, this is where they put most of their energy and the bit they enjoyed the most. For their reception they wanted something colourful, fun and inspired by the beach.

Colourful & Fun Brighton Wedding with a Christian Ceremony (16)

“The inspiration for the wedding was just us!” said the bride. “We wanted something colourful, fun and family-focused by the seaside. Anything we loved, we included. We had random Disney references and a Pixar short movie playing while we signed the register, we picked colours we loved and had a Lindy Hop first dance. There were board games and face mat coasters, balloons, fake tattoos for people to put on at the reception, succulents in teacups (I grow my own at home and we are both avid tea-drinkers!) The watercolour stationery nodded to our artistic sides, and we had some references to Brighton – the city I’ve lived in all my adult life that we both love. The table names were the countries we are travelling to on our 8-month sort-of honeymoon.”
