It’s difficult enough planning a wedding day in just under four months, let alone if you’re spending those months travelling around the world. Laura and Chris proved it can be done with their intimate wedding in Lewes and Brighton last weekend.
Not only did they manage to secure a very pretty church, they sorted the cosy Ginger Dog in Kemptown as their reception venue and managed to get a dress custom-made. They even gathered their family and friends from wide and far, with plenty of guests over from America.
The weather had most definitely turned since the last time we met up in Brighton. We stayed over the night before, driving through the awful storm we’ve just had. Luckily, it wasn’t so bad the next day, but everyone was thankful for the open fire and the warmth of a pub once the sun went down.
To start the day, I met up with Laura and a few of her pals at The Lanes Health and Beauty as they prepared for the day with pre-wedding pedicures and manicures before they got ready at Laura’s Mum and Dad’s holiday apartment.
We were a bit of an advert for AirBnB that day. Ian and I had sorted our own digs that night (a lovely B&B room – if you need a bed to kip in near Brighton we thoroughly recommend this place). Meanwhile, the wedding party had use AirBnB to sort their own lovely places to stay.
As the days are really short at the mo it was dark and snug by the time everyone arrived at The Ginger Dog for their evening do. Here, plenty of Prosecco was consumed as well as lots of hot grub. As this was a super relaxed affair, everyone was free to seat themselves for dinner.
After all the food had been eaten everyone enjoyed private use of the pub, whether that was to rest and chat by the fire, prop up the bar or boogie upstairs.
Here are some of our favourites from Laura and Chris’ day:
