I don’t know where to start – Ruth and Chris’s day was awesome! I started at their apartment, where Ruth was getting ready with her family and I was made to feel right at home.
After getting into her beautiful Dreamers & Lovers dress, we loaded into the coolest turquoise blue VW Camper Van and headed to Brighton Pavilion. The ceremony was held in the Red Drawing Room and besides initially not being able to get Chris’s ring on, it went very smoothly!
As the weather wasn’t the greatest, we were permitted to use the grand Music Room for post ceremony mingles as well as portraits. Well worth a visit if you find yourself being a tourist in Brighton.
Soon afterwards Chris, Ruth and myself jumped into the VW Camper Van whilst the rest of their guests boarded a red double decker bus. The reception was held at Perch on Lancing Beach (although we stopped at Brighton Bandstand for a few snaps on the way) which was the perfect setting for their celebration.
Ruth and Chris had so many lovely little touches that brought their day together. The table lists were painted by Ruth’s sister, the wooden blocks in which the cake and centrepieces sat were handmade by Ruth’s dad, the sand at the bottom of the candle jars were from Ruth’s favourite childhood beach and her engagement ring was from Chris’s great grandmother.
The rest of the night is history… check out the images below for a bigger picture of the day…
