Brilliant Brighton Wedding Venues

As Brighton wedding photographers, we get to see a lot of different Brighton wedding Venues. Fun, unique and lively, Brighton offers a wide variety of awesome locations for weddings, civil ceremonies and engagement sessions. We’ve used our inside knowledge as Brighton wedding photographers to put together this little guide, featuring some of our favourite local spots from some of the gorgeous weddings and engagement sessions we’ve photographed over the years.

Brighton Pavilion

If you’re looking for a regal Brighton wedding venue then you really can’t get more fitting than Brighton’s very own Royal Pavilion. Depending on the size of wedding you’re planning there are a number of options for you to choose from, all steeped in Georgian history and grandeur. And for a unique backdrop to your wedding photography you can’t really beat the Pavilion’s beautiful Regency gardens.

Brighton Registry Office and the Lanes

Brighton Registry Office is a great option if you’d prefer a low-key ceremony. The registry office is housed inside Brighton Town Hall on Bartholomew Square in the heart of the City centre, just a short walk from the beach and close to plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants – and of course Brighton Pier, in case you fancy some post-wedding candy floss!

Brighton Pier and seafront

Quintessentially Brighton, the pier offers a true fun by the sea vibe for couples looking for a memorable wedding or engagement session location. The added bonus is you can treat yourselves to fish and chips after your ceremony – just watch out for the seagulls!

Pangdean Old Barn

Located on the outskirts of Brighton, Pangdean is an 18th century oak-framed Sussex Barn, complete with courtyard, flint walled garden and the breathtaking backdrop of the South Downs. The inside of the barn is simple yet charming, and comes complete with an array of fairy lights across the ceiling, which creates a beautiful soft romantic atmosphere.

Brighton College

Located in the heart of Kemptown, Brighton College is a stunning venue with plenty of characterful features. The College, an independent school by day (much like one of our other favourite venues, Hampton Court House!), Brighton College offers a number of options for weddings, including an in house team of chefs so you don’t need to worry about organising your own caterers. The beautifully kept grounds make a wonderful backdrop for wedding photos.

The Meeting House at the University of Sussex

If you’re looking for a wedding venue with a difference then the Meeting House at the University of Sussex takes some beating! The small windows in the first floor chapel are filled with coloured panes of glass and when the sun shines through them it turns the whole hall into kaleidoscope of colour. There is space at the lower part of the building for small receptions, but you always have the option to go on to another larger venue in the city after your ceremony.

Stanmer House

If you’re looking for a bit of wedding grandeur then Stanmer House will surely fit the bill. Set in the heart of Stanmer Park on the outskirts of the City, Stanmer House is a beautiful Grade 1 listed mansion with a rich history. It’s licensed for Civil Wedding ceremonies and civil partnerships.
