Charley and Arvin’s wedding at St Michael and All Angels, Brighton.

I was the wedding photographer for Charley and Arvin’s wedding at St Michael and All Angels Church in Brighton at the weekend. After a very wet Friday and a gloomy start to Saturday morning, things started to brighten up and, by the time Charley walked from her home to the church with her Mum, Dad and bridesmaid Emma, the sun was shining.
The church must be one of the largest in Sussex and has an interesting interior with several stained glass windows by William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. Thank you to to Father Gareth Jones, who conducted the ceremony and was very helpful with the photography, I was given permission to do anything as long as I was discreet, which I hope I was. It’s the most important part of the day for the bride and groom, so it’s nice to have some record of it.
After the ceremony we made a quick stop in Powis Gardens for some group shots, before making our way to The Hotel du Vin in a double decker bus, hired for the occasion. While the guests were having drinks in the main hotel I had an opportunity to take Charlie and Arvin down to the Brighton seafront for some shots of just the two of them. They raised a few cheers and congratulations as they walked along the front on a busy Saturday afternoon.
The wedding breakfast took place in the Pub du Vin, next door to the Hotel. The last time I visited this building was in the final days of the Sussex Arts Club, when the carpet stuck to your shoes and the ballroom windows were permanently blacked out. It’s now had a major refurbishment and looks great, particularly the ballroom where Charley and Arvin had their wedding breakfast. It looked like a good time was had by everyone.
