Cara & Derek | The Coach House

02nd March 2015


Words really can't do this one justice!

On an absolutely gorgeous day in October, beautiful Cara got ready for her wedding with her sister, daughter and mum at One Broad Street, a lovely B&B in central Brighton, where I was totally spoilt with a room full of light and stunning faces to photograph. Everyone was excited and there were a few tears here and there, but the atmosphere was relaxed and I loved having a chat with the girls, whilst clicking away as the preparations unfolded.

After a short taxi ride where I managed to get into a debate about The Green Party (only in Brighton!) I went on to meet Derek and some of his friends, who were having a great time at the Pub du Vin. As a Scotsman, Derek and many of his family were wearing kilts (love it) and as we made the short walk through the sunny streets to Brighton Town Hall, I couldn't quite believe my luck at how the day was panning out so far - not only were the Bride & Groom totally gorgeous, their friends and family were unbelievably friendly and welcoming.

The ceremony was intimate, so romantic and full of emotion. I really had to hold myself together (even more than usual!) but as the rings went on and the register was signed, the laughter flowed and the gloriously happy new couple stepped outside with huge smiles as the confetti was thrown.

We did the group shots outside the Town Hall and then got a taxi ride to the iconic bandstand on the seafront for a few more couple portraits, before heading to The Coach House for their fantastic wedding breakfast and evening reception.

Totally stylish, yet intimate and so full of love - I loved this wedding so much. Thank you both for making me feel so welcome and I wish you every happiness in your future together x
