Fushia Pink and Tuk Tuks for Fabulously Stylish Brighton Wedding: Victoria&Tony
We were recently asked to photograph this fabulously stylish Brighton wedding, for a couple bursting with fun and style. You may recall their gorgeous engagement shoot we posted a few months back, which gave us the opportunity to get to know them before the wedding and to scout out places to take them on the day for their couple shots. Here’s a little reminder…
Our day began with a warm welcome from Vics’ lovely parents at their home where she and her bridesmaids were getting ready. I soon went in search of the dress (the reveal is so exciting)! Not only did I find the most exquisite dress (from Teokath, Wimbledon), but laying proud in the middle of the room were the ultimate wedding shoes- the Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon Hearts (as featured recently on The Knotty Bride)- swoon! Martin meanwhile, joined Tony and the boys for the ushers’ lunch in a pub not far from the church, to capture the festivities in the lead up to the ceremony, then onto the church as the guests arrive, (one of many advantages of having two photographers).
The ceremony took place at the stunning St George’s Church in Brighton, East Sussex. We just adore the bold white and blue interior and exterior of this magnificent building, and Vics’ choice of fuschia bridesmaids dresses and fabulous flowers (arranged by her family) was the perfect compliment.
Waiting to whisk the newlyweds away was a marvellous Tuk Tuk, adorned with giant silver ‘V’ and ‘T’ balloons- a wonderfully quirky touch! Brighton bandstand and beach huts were simply perfect settings for couple shots, particularly as they complemented their colour scheme so beautifully.
The reception was held in an impressive marquee in Firle Cricket Ground. It was beautifully lit with purple, orange and blue creating a truly romantic yet vibrant atmosphere. We were even treated to a delicious meal from The Secret Restaurant, which looked every bit as good as it tasted! The band, The BB Collective (friends of the bride), were fantastic, playing all the best dancing tracks that we all know and love, and nobody was shy about getting up- the dance floor was packed!
We have picked a handful of our favourite photographs from the day. We hope you agree that their personalities, unique style, and attention to detail really show through, and helped us to create a great set of photographs!
Although, there was a little distraction from the dancefloor- our photobooth! This idea proved really popular! We simply tucked our studio equipment into a corner and using the white marquee as a backdrop, took some fun (and some rather silly) shots of as many people as we could!
“Wow, what wonderful photos. We simply love them. You have both captured the feel and the vibe of the day so well – lots of laughter, love and fun. And I love the little envelope the disk came in – lovely little touches. You are both delightful to work with and as a lot of people commented on, very unobtrusive when taking photos. Your ability to roll out the “studio” was fantastic and I am amazed by how cool those photos look! Thanks again to you both.” Vics&Tony
