Eesha and Sanj civil wedding sneak peek | Brighton wedding photographer

On Friday, which by the way was an unseasonably sunny and clear day in October, we headed back to Brighton to join Eesha and Sanj as they celebrated the civil ceremony side of their wedding celebrations.

Eesha wore a beautifully stylish Stella McCartney wedding dress, with the perfect ensemble of something old (her Grandmother’s diamond earrings), something new (stunning Alaia shoes), something borrowed (a vintage birdcage headpiece from a friend), something blue (the gemstone in a gorgeous bracelet).  Sanj was suited and booted in a very dapper looking Hugo Boss suit and joined with the rest of the groomsmen some very jazzy Happy Socks!

It was our first Brighton Town Hall wedding and wow what an impressive historic building with beautiful sweeping staircases and ornate ceiling detail, and that was just the “hallways”.  The ceremony was moving, with personalised vows, which always gets me (yes, I am that photographer that gets teary at weddings!)

Following the ceremony, the guests were treated to delicious canapes and fizz at the Brighton Music Hall whilst we snuck off to make the most of the golden light of the setting sun over Brighton Beach.  Super stylish Eesha then changed into a gorgeous sparkly number to dance the evening away, but first we captured some final portraits at the Grand Hotel and caught the final moments of the sunset, it was breath taking!

Brighton is such a special place to Eesha and Sanj in their relationship and so it was the perfect setting for their civil wedding celebrations.  We can’t wait for their Indian wedding celebrations next weekend.
