Brighton Town Hall Wedding
I’ve shot quite a few Brighton Town Hall Weddings and they’re always different and unique. This one was in November, on a rather chilly day, but with some clear weather and nice crisp light for the morning. We started at the family home in suburban Brighton for some bridal prep photos. There were fairy lights decorated all around the ceiling which made a great effect when blurred in the bokeh of the lens for the make up shots.
A civil ceremony at the Brighton Town Hall
Before heading to the Brighton Town Hall, I stopped off with Bishwas for a couple of shots of the groomsmen getting ready at a nearby hotel.
The civil ceremony was held in the Regency Room at Brighton Town Hall. We shot a few group photographs in the town hall foyer afterwards, using a bit of off camera flash, and then we headed out into the Brighton Lanes for some wedding photography under the Christmas lights.
Some off camera flash and a wide open aperture helped to capture the illumination in the Brighton Lanes. I also used a bit of the ambient light for a couple of shots too.
Wedding Photography in Brighton Lanes
Beth & Bishwas wanted to get some photographs in front of, or around the Royal Pavilion. They have an ice rink on the front lawns at this time of year, so we went down a small side street to capture a few photos of the facade of the building without being disturbed. We also captured a quick shot in front of the ice rink on our way past back to the wedding car to go to the Brighton Beach Club.
Brighton Beach Club Wedding
After throwing some confetti, a few dinner party games and tearful/hilarious speeches, we headed back out in some rather chilly temperatures to capture some shots on the bandstand just next to Brighton Beach Club. It had rained a few days before and had left a rather large puddle that I used to create some cool reflections along the seafront. The use of flash makes the reflection really stand out.
Beth & Bishwas are both dancers, so I asked them to have a practice of their first dance on the Brighton Bandstand. Using three flashguns to illuminate the structure and couple, we got some dramatic but natural, candid photographs. View the full wedding here.
