You can literally get married anywhere these days and with more and more couples taking full control of their big days and planning a celebration that reflects their unique personalities and style, this is a trend very much set to continue! If you are thinking about getting wed down here on the Sussex south coast then here are my 5 great reasons to get married in Brighton 🙂
At just under an hour from London, Brighton is the go to resort for an urban beach wedding. With its relaxed, bohemian vibe and city by the sea status, Brighton has much to offer just about any couple. If a seaside wedding isn’t your thing then just ten minutes away are the beautiful South Downs and acres of woodland and lush countryside.
Talk about being spoilt for choice! From the opulent Royal Pavilion to the cool beachside bars, quirky hotels and Brighton Bandstand, every venue you could possibly consider is literally within walking distance of the seafront. Check out this post on alternative beach wedding venues in Brighton for my favourites! For couples wanting to head out of the city, Stanmer House, Pangdean Barn or Court Gardens Farm are just a short drive away.
Brighton has long had a reputation for its ‘anything goes attitude’ and ‘ saucy weekend destination’ which in my eyes makes it the perfect location for a fun elopement without the expense of a thirteen hour flight to Vegas! There are so many romantic things to do in the city for newlyweds including a ride on the i360, private helicopter flights out over the sea or a wedding breakfast with a difference at Choccywoccydoodah’s Bar du Chocolat. If you love amazing food, Brighton is home to the award winning 64 degrees, a cosy and intimate restaurant tucked away in Brighton’s Lanes, and the most beautiful boutique hotels. Oh, and we have a casino too 😉
4) Bursting With Creatives
Brighton is literally bursting at the seams with creatives and has the highest proportion of small businesses in the creative industries operating within the sector. In layman’s terms this mean that you will have absolutely no trouble whatsoever finding the most brilliant of suppliers to help make your Brighton wedding a day to remember. Look no further for your photographer 😉
5) Mini Breaks
If you are making a few days of it you really can’t go wrong here (and your guests of all ages will thank you if they are also making a break of it!) Funnily enough, Brighton is very well known as a hen & stag party destination! Check out this great list of of alternative hen party ideas. A trip to Brighton also wouldn’t be complete without a stroll down the Pier, a ride on the seafront carousel or a meander through the famous North Laines.
