The dull grey skies did nothing to dampen the joy on the faces of this stylish couple for their Brighton beach engagement shoot!
It’s fair to say that they were initially quite nervous about the shoot, which a lot of people are (unless you’re one of those lucky model confident types!). We hadn’t seen each other for over a year after all, since our first meeting when they booked me. And this is one of the main reasons I offer all of my couples a complimentary pre-wedding shoot, as within a short time they visibly relaxed as we chatted and joked together, and they saw that my relaxed style is nothing to fear!!
Although they now live in London, when they first met Kerry lived in Brighton. They spent many a happy weekend together in the city during the early days of their relationship. So it understandably holds a place in their heart, which makes it the perfect location choice for their wedding day (not that I’m biased living here myself!).
We met at the Angel of Peace statue, which is directly opposite their venue, and strolled along the seafront stopping at the West Pier behind a lovely empty beach (one of the biggest benefits to a dull grey day- those who have visited Brighton beach on a sunny day will know it can be shoulder to shoulder on here!). We also headed to the Fisherman’s Quarter, where they sell lovely fresh mackerel sandwiches which they smoke themselves on site, and they have a tiny history museum. I love the old red brick archways, and the ‘real’ Brighton, in stark contrast to the modern and tacky side to the city.
They are such an effortlessly stylish couple, and I can’t wait for their wedding day in a couple of weeks time, at the elegant Angel House on Hove seafront.
