When I think of Brighton, I think of the pier and the gorgeous painted beach huts. Mel and Dave had a pretty handmade wedding, with Mel’s mum making the dress and doing the flowers (amongst other things!). They embraced their colourful surroundings and had beautifully bright blooms, watercolour stationery and bright blue shoes!

Dave’s suit was from Ted Baker.

The ceremony, we loved looking out and seeing all our friends and family.

They each picked their own.

Emma May Wedding Photography – Emma was amazing, she didn’t miss a detail and was really friendly and helpful through out the wedding planning process. I would highly recommend her.

A family friend made the cake. Carrot cake x2, lemon sponge and victoria sponge

http://www.djbrighton.com/ Brett was a fantastic DJ, every song choice was flawless and he was able to really enhance the mood of the wedding. I would highly recommend him, there wasn’t one person who didn’t get up to dance.

The clichés are true, it will be one of the most special days of your life and you’ll be totally loved up during and after your wedding – it does feel different. We organised everything ourselves but if other brides were to do the same I would recommend putting someone in charge on the day to ensure the running order goes to plan. Everyone will want a piece of you so if someone else can take control of where people need to go, when things needs to happen and what you want to happen, it will make it easier for you to be stress-free and let enjoy your day a lot more.
