I love Brighton and it was brilliant to get down the coast and meet up with Mark and Suzie for their engagement photos on the beach and iconic Brighton pier. As a photographer I love the locations on offer in Brighton, from the funky lanes of quirky, alternative shops, interesting buildings and graffiti walls, the surreal pavilion and the beach and pier with the kitsch seaside feel. Suzie and Mark are getting married at the Hotel Du Vin in Brighton, a modern boutique hotel tucked away just off the famous seafront promenade. Think they did pretty well in front of the camera, we had a fun little stroll, and hoping we can get back down to the beach for their wedding photos in October.
Natasha and Peter did things a bit differently for their wedding photos. Putting aside the tradition of the bride not seeing the groom before the wedding, we met up in the morning for their wedding portraits. As a photographer this was a bit of a treat as I rarely get to spend so much time on the bride and groom photos. It also meant we were able to hit the beach and the colourful beach huts, before they went off to get married elsewhere. We went back to Hayling Island, where we had shot some pre-wedding portraits on a reconnaissance mission a few weeks ago. The sun was out and we had bright blue skies, it was a gorgeous day on the beach. Natasha and Peter are a really fun couple and you could feel the excitement they shared for their wedding in a few hours, and hopefully that shows in these photos.
Here’s a selection from their wedding day. Natasha & Peter, I hope you had an amazing wedding celebration and many congratulations!
Natasha & Peter are getting married in a few weeks on Hayling Island. We met there today for a pre-wedding portrait session on the beach, for a bit of a trial run before the big day. The beach huts provided a colourful backdrop for some fun photos, and the love shack- what a find! We brought some props along for a bit of a beach theme, and I think these made for some quirky photos. Thanks to Natasha and Peter for being great sports and being relaxed and cheerful in front of the camera. I’m really looking forward to our next session on their wedding day where we can build on some of the things we’ve tried to today.
