David and Rachael’s Proud Cabaret wedding took place on one of those autumnal days in October when the sky turns a brilliant blue and the light really is golden. Being with them for only a few short hours I was determined to capture as much of the day as I possibly could in the time available, but the whole afternoon was such a pleasure to photograph that I am quite sure I was still snapping away long after I should have been on my way home!
I met Rachael at the house for some getting ready photos and having heard that her Mum had handmade ALL of the dresses I was really looking forward to seeing what Rachael was going to wear. And boy oh boy did this gown have the wow factor! Short, with real fifties style flair and plenty of ruffled under-skirting, this was perhaps one of my all time favourites. The teal coloured bridesmaids outfits and daughter Flo’s sweet little flower girl’s dress with matching ribbon finished off a great look 🙂
All dressed up and ready to go we headed into Brighton for the ceremony at the Brighton Town Hall and then hopped on to a vintage Southdown bus for a ride along the front to Proud Cabaret. Seriously, this venue is – in the words of my daughter – totally awesome! Quirky boudoir a go-go and so right for David and Rachael’s wedding. As Rachael quite rightly pointed out there was very little detail-wise that she needed to add to make this venue any better apart from the handmade gingerbread biscuit place settings, lovingly cooked up and iced the night before by her bridesmaid!
Leaving them to enjoy the rest of their evening I headed home in that beautiful golden light thrilled to have been part of something a little bit different and wishing this lovely family all the very best for a long and fifties, fabulous married life together 🙂
