Same Sex Wedding Inspiration on Brighton Seafront

Brighton Harbour Hotel Wedding 

Very recently the Brighton Harbour Hotel emerged, taking over the Umi hotel they have refurbished and made a fabulous high end boutique hotel. Together with a team of amazing Sussex suppliers I took part in a photoshoot to show off the newly opened hotel and to showcase its wedding facilities. Harbour hotel is a great location for a wedding, right on the seafront it is perfect for an amazing view and also to get some fun wedding shots done on beach!

The photoshoot celebrates Brighton and its diversity, with a same sex couple both dressed in gorgeous gowns from Mode Bridal in Hove and both holding romantic cascading bridal bouquets by me. We wanted this shoot to be show a fun relaxed wedding but still with touches of glamour and luxury – not all low key weddings have to be in a barn or a tipi!

The Harbour Hotel also has an AMAZING luxury spa and is the perfect way to start your honeymoon.

This was an early Autumn shoot and the bouquets had loads of seasonal goodies in, Autumn is a great time for a wedding as there are loads of fabulous rich colours and textures to be had. The bouquets are made up of, spray roses, lisianthus, amaranthus, alstroemeria, seeded eucalyptus, astrantia, sweet avalanche roses, alliums, crocosmia seed heads, cymbidium orchids and asparagus fern – what a treat to work with!

Blush was one if the favourite wedding colours last season and it seems to still be a popular one, teaming pale blush tones with stronger maroons, plums and burgundy colours is a beautiful way to keep with the current trends but also works really well to celebrate Autumn.

The wedding room has the most gorgeous stained glass window which really adds to the light and bright feel to the room. Sorrel and Steve set up a beautiful display of vintage bottles and candlesticks which worked really nicely placed along the window sill.

Thanks to every one who was involved!
