Brighton Pavilion Wedding Photography
One of the nicest things about being a wedding photographer is the variety of locations I get to visit and shoot weddings at. No more being stuck at a desk in one place day in day out. What a treat! One of my absolute favourite venues in Sussex is the spectacular and iconic Royal Brighton Pavilion. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph lots of weddings there over the last few years and each time I go back, I find something new to love about the Pavilion. It’s such a unique and original building and you can visibly see the impact it has on wedding guests as they arrive. I’ve just photographed another winter wedding with a few more to follow in the weeks before Christmas so I thought I’d share some of my favourites images from both summer and winter weddings shot at the Pavilion.
Ceremonies at Brighton Pavilion
Ceremonies can be held in either the Red Drawing Room or the fabulous Music Room – I’ll be shooting another winter wedding next month in the Music Room so look out for that blog post later. I’ve also photographed wedding receptions in all of the Royal Pavilion Reception rooms – the King William IV Room, the Adelaide Room and the terraces on the first floor overlooking the gardens, which is a really fabulous location for summer weddings.
As a historic building with very specialist lighting, it can be a real challenge shooting there – it’s rooms are low lit to preserve the decorative details, works of art, furniture and tapestries so it helps that I have lots of experience of shooting there and handling the low light. My pro cameras and lenses can handle any lighting situation there, so having shot weddings there at all times throughout the year, the lighting is not a problem for me.
Brighton Pavilion wedding photography
I’ve shot quite a few weddings at the Pavilion so here are a few blog posts to some of the many weddings I’ve covered in both summer and winter: Sarah & Alex summer wedding BLOG POST, Danielle & Richard spring wedding BLOG POST, and Liz & Simon’s autumn wedding BLOG POST. I’ll be posting a few more winter weddings shortly so again, keep an eye out for those.
Brighton Pavilion is ideal for couples looking for something a bit different and who aren’t necessarily wanting to get married in church – the Regency splendour, opulence and incredible decor make it a truly fabulous and grand place to get married in and definitely provides the wow factor without costing the earth! Photographically, it’s a great match for my style of photography and offers lots of different areas to celebrate and be photographed in. If you’re planning a wedding at the Pavilion and are still looking for a photographer, please do get in touch via my contact page – I’d be delighted to hear from you. Thanks for stopping by.
