Brighton has long been one of my favourite places to visit. From my first ever mini break away at the age of 18 (we signed our names as Mr and Mrs Smith in the guest book!) through to making a habit of visiting at least once a year these days, there is something about the atmosphere, amazing shops and friendly people that I just LOVE!
So, in search of some bohemian wedding inspiration, Team Budget Bride Company made their way down to the South Coast for a few days of beach side fun!
What trip to Brighton wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Choccywoccydoodah?! This chocolate wonderland hosts some of the most incredible cake designs we have ever seen… Whilst some of the designs come in a lot pricier (what I wouldn’t give for the Las Vegas wedding cake!), you can have a Choccywoccydoodah designer wedding cake – such as this stunning orchid creation to feed 40 guests for £199. Hurrah!
And here’s a couple of the creations we saw on our visit to the shop…
We loved wandering through The Lanes , spending our afternoons gazing at the beautiful unique engagement rings in the antique jewellery shop windows. There are more wonderful designs than you can shake a stick at - my favourites are definitely the ones including a sapphire!
And look at these beautiful white roses that got caught in an afternoon downpour!
We fell in love with the cakes at Cloud 9 – they have some great designs from £150, and the staff are so friendly!
We had a fantastic visit to Snoopers Paradise – perfect for retro styled weddings, with plenty of vintage crockery, jewellery and even copies of Vogue from back in the early 90’s for some classic fashion inspiration. The place is enormous and you can easily spend a couple of hours snooping through the treasures!
We had a great day on The Pier on New Years Day. With a clear blue sky and warm sun, it was easy to see why it might be an idea to say ‘I Do’ there! This would make an incredibly fun and different wedding venue – just think of the photo opportunities!
Brighton is such a fantastic place; whether you are using wedding suppliers from here, holding your wedding here, or both - you will truly be spoiled for choice. Brighton – we love you!
