Brighton Beach pre wedding shoot with couple

BRIGHTON BEACH PRE WEDDING SHOOT - SONIA & KHYE

Sonia & Khye


“These are amazing we absolutely love them! Thank you so much we really enjoyed the shoot!”


Sonia & Khye decided to travel down for their pre wedding shoot on Brighton Beach and wanted to include a few iconic Brighton spots. I love doing pre wedding shoots in Brighton as we’re so spoilt for choice for different types of locations. We started at the famous coloured beach huts. No matter how many times I come here I always like looking for different ways to use them to make some interesting and creative portraits.

From there we made our way along the promenade to the Victorian Brighton Bandstand stopping at different spots on the beach on the way. The Bandstand is another one of my favourite spots for a Brighton pre wedding shoot, especially when the sun is setting in the distance. The colours that you get in the sky is absolutely stunning. We absolutely lucked out with the weather and it didn’t disappoint. Incredibly we had it all to ourselves too.

We had such a great time and it was a really nice way for us to be able to hang out and get to know each other and chat about their plans for their big day.

Pre wedding shoots are a really fun and a good way for you to get used to being in front of the camera which will help you to feel more relaxed on your wedding day.

LONDON WEDDING – CAVALRY & GUARDS CLUB - FENELLA & HENRY

Fenella & Henry


“Thank you SO SO much for these gorgeous photos. You captured the day so perfectly, so many big smiles and laughter.”


Fenella & Henry’s London wedding at the Cavalry & Guards Club was incredible, full of love laughter and tears (of joy).

Fenella, her closest friends and mum spent the morning getting ready in a lovely, spacious flat near Victoria. I could tell straight away that it was going to be a fun day, with the girls laughing and joking around the whole time.

Before the girls had finished getting ready I popped off to catch up with Henry & the guys who gone to a nearby pub to have a few beers and a bit of lunch before the ceremony. The mood there was much the same as with Fenella & the girls. I don’t think I saw Henry stop smiling the whole time I was there, so excited for the big day that had been a long time in the making, having met when they were teenagers at school. A beautiful and somewhat unique story these days. Though, if you saw them together it is clear to see why together so long and that they truly make the perfect couple.

Their ceremony was held at St. Columba’s Church of Scotland. Fenella comes from Scottish lineage so it felt only appropriate that they would tie the knot there.

Whilst Henry waited patiently and slightly nervously with excitement at the end of the aisle, Fenella arrived with her dad in a beautiful, classic Bentley to the sound of bagpipes playing by one of their closest friend’s. Another special touch was that a family friend who is a Vicar actually conducted the ceremony.

Following on from the ceremony we all made our way to their London wedding reception at The Cavalry & Guards Club, Mayfair. And yes there was another connection to the reception venue too, as Fenella’s dad actually served in the Cavalry and is a member of the club. All of these connections really helped make it so unique to them and such a memorable day.

Situated in central London, by Hyde Park & Green Park, The Cavalry & Guards Club really was a special place for a grand wedding reception, with a large banquet hall fit for royalty.

Having gotten to know Fenella & Henry a bit I knew that they wanted a big party and it didn’t disappoint. They both got it started with an energetic first dance, followed by a confetti cannon. The party was epic and the perfect way to end what was such an incredible day.

creative brighton pre wedding shoot

STANMER PARK, BRIGHTON PRE WEDDING SHOOT - CLAIRE & ALEX

STANMER PARK, BRIGHTON PRE WEDDING SHOOT

CLAIRE & ALEX


“Thank you again for making the whole experience simple and so comforting, looking forward to the wedding pictures now!”


Just like a lot of couples that I work with, Claire & Alex and had never had any photos taken professionally and thought that it would be a good idea to do an engagement shoot to help them feel more relaxed on the wedding day. Engagement shoots are great for this as they’re super relaxed and help to give you an idea of what to expect on the big day.

They’re based in Brighton but fancied having a more countryside feel to the pre wedding shoot so we headed over to the beautiful Stanmer Park on the outskirts of Brighton. If you haven’t been there before I highly recommend going to check it out and explore. It’s so expansive and there’s so much to see. I’ve been so many times with my wife and every time we go we still find new routes and areas. It also makes an incredible location for an engagement shoot.

The weather hadn’t been great leading up to the day of the shoot but by a stroke of luck, it was absolutely perfect on the day. The soft evening light streaming through the trees was absolutely stunning.

I had such a nice time with them both and it really is a nice way to get to know each other a bit more too before the big day. As we walked and talked Claire told me that she used to be a dancer and was still very passionate about it so I wanted to include a shot that gave a little nod to her past. In Stammer Park, there are the most incredible, giant, ancient trees that I knew we could do something cool with. Check out the last photo in this post to see what we did.
