Brighton beach engagement shoot

BEST BRIGHTON ENGAGEMENT SHOOT LOCATIONS

Best Brighton Engagement Shoot Locations

Brighton is an awesome city and a great place to have an engagement shoot. There are so many amazing locations to explore. From the iconic to the hidden gems that you may only know about if you’re a local. There really is something for everyone.

In this blog post, I’m going to share with you some of my favourite spots for a Brighton engagement shoot.

North Laines

The first place I’d like to mention is one of my favourite parts of Brighton and that is the North Laines. Full of life, here you really get a taste of Brighton’s quirkier side. With so many different streets and something different on each one, you’re spoilt for choice for places to explore. It really is a fun and interesting location to have your engagement photos.

Brighton Bandstand

 The Brighton Bandstand first opened in 1884 and in 2009 it was renovated and restored to its original glory. Located on the seafront in Brighton it is a great spot to go to as the sun goes down in the distance behind.

Stanmer Park

 The extensive park and woodland around Stanmer House are absolutely stunning. It’s one of my favourite spots to go walking with my wife on the weekend and a great location for a countryside engagement shoot. No matter how many times you go you’ll always find more to explore.

Hove Seafront

 With its long promenade and colourful beach huts, it’s a great place to come for an engagement shoot. We can walk the promenade together stopping along the way to make some creative and interesting portraits of you and your partner.

The West Pier

When we’re talking about Brighton we can’t neglect to mention it’s iconic West Pier. Built in 1866 to attract tourist to Brighton is it worked as a functioning pier right up until 1975 when it was closed. Though it has become more dilapidated since its closure, with two fires almost completely destroying what was left of it, it has never lost its charm. I love incorporating this into my Brighton engagement shoots and I’m always looking for new and interesting ways to do this.

The Rock Gardens

This beautiful and unique park was originally constructed in the mid 1930’s. With the incredible range of beautiful non-native trees and shrubs you almost feel as though you’ve been transported to another country and not on the outskirts of Brighton. I never get bored of visiting here, there’s so much to see and explore. It really is a hidden gem of Brighton. You can see more from Manny & Will’s shoot here.

Brighton Palace Pier

Still as popular as ever and is another classic Brighton attraction. There are some great areas underneath the pier and on the surrounding beaches. I love exploring this area with my couples. If you’re looking for something very ‘Brighton’ then this is another awesome spot.

TOTTINGTON MANOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER


“We absolutely love them!!”


TOTTINGTON MANOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – ALLIE & HENRY

The morning prep started at Allie’s parent’s house in Brighton. I think the award for the best reaction from a bride’s dad after seeing his daughter in her dress for the first time definitely goes to Allie’s dad. It was brilliant!

From Brighton, I set off to catch up with Henry at the beautiful St Andrews church in Edburton. A quaint little church tucked away at the bottom of the South Downs, it really was a lovely place for an intimate ceremony with their nearest and dearest.

Henry had mentioned to me before the ceremony that he was worried about being able to hold it together when he saw Allie walk down the aisle and his emotions did get the better of him briefly. It was such a beautiful moment though and I felt very lucky to be there to witness it.

After the ceremony, we made our way to their Tottington Manor wedding reception, a short drive from the church. It really is a lovely venue and the location and panoramic views from there are absolutely stunning.

As the wedding breakfast and speeches came to an end the sun was starting to go down and the light was incredible. Wanting to make the most of it, we jumped in the car and went to a beautiful cornfield at the bottom of the South Downs to grab some golden hour portraits. I love when we’re able to get away for a short time on the wedding day and make the most of the light but have you back before your guests even know you’re gone.

As the DJ, Brett of Hotsteppaz got the tunes going the party really got started and the dance floor was packed, it was awesome, so much fun and a really great way to end a special day.
