An OhSo Brighton Wedding
Given how fickle the British weather can be, we reckon Heather&Pawel were pretty thankful to have such a gorgeously sunny day for their Brighton wedding, where parasols rather than umbrellas were the order of the day. The good weather certainly rubbed off on this lovely couple, who were super excited all day long, and which made for some really fun shots when we were alone with just the two of them!
The whole wedding party had a stroll in the sun as they made their way from the ceremony at Brighton Town Hall to the beach, where they were served fish and chips in the rather quirky OhSo bar – we loved the touches of Americana in there, and it worked perfectly with Heather’s bright yellow 50s petticoat.
We often say to our couples that it can be a really nice touch if there’s a chance of one of them getting ready in their own home – there are often a lot of things we find that reflect the personalities of a couple, or a particular point in their life which they can look back on. Heather&Pawel were in the middle of renovating their home, and we really felt we were being thrown into a significant moment of change in their lives, and hopefully we managed to reflect this in their photos too!
After a fun ride on a Big Lemon bus, Heather&Pawel, along with their guests, arrived at their venue for the evening – the rather spectacular Proud Cabaret, which was an absolute joy to work in because of the incredible lighting. Although it’s one of the darker venues we’ve shot in, the light was actually really challenging and fun to work with, and we’re so thrilled with the results.
The guests were asked to draw self-portraits for Heather&Pawel’s guest book, and hang them up so everyone could see – we even used Pawel’s sister’s drawings of the couple when we designed their wedding album cover, and it looked simply amazing!
