Brighton Fabrica Wedding // April + Jamie

Mar 9, 2019 | Weddings

I walked into the boys’ hotel room in the morning of April and Jamie’s wedding, and was greeted with a gang of topless, trouser-less men, one mini fan, one bottle of vodka and a steaming iron left on. Welcome to a Brighton wedding in the summer!

Moving on to the girls’ hotel, Artist’s Residence, the atmosphere was total calm and serenity – the opposite to the boys!

April and Jamie got married in Brighton at Duke of Yorks, where they first met working on a film together. “We met on a job, Jamie was directing me in a film. Jamie proposed at Brighton Station which is where we first ever clapped eyes on each other! It was so romantic, he had arranged a fake busker to sing our song as we got off the train. Of course I was totally surprised and it was magic!”

Their party was at Fabrica, an art space that used to be a Regency church. April and Jamie’s first dance was from Grease, and they totally nailed it. Check out that lift… These guys are awesome!

Here’s the deal - your wedding should be fun, it should be you, and it should be all, “this is the best day ever” rather than all, “let’s get through this as fast as possible.” And sometimes, the same old wedding traditions just aren’t going to cut it - you need a...
