Kathryn and Lee’s Colourful Brighton Wedding

Hello lovely SYW readers! Today I have a fun filled Brighton wedding for you thanks to wonderful Erika at PhotoMadly.

 

You know its going to be full of vibrance when the wedding preparations start at the colourful Hotel Pelirocco. Kathryn and Lee were lucky enough to even get a few shots on the beach, which is a must if you are getting married near the sea side. Its great to see bold colours used as accents throughout the day and Im loving the red cake.

Words of wisdom for couples planning their wedding?
Plan ahead and shop around. Spend money on a good photographer and save money by making things yourself (decorations and favours)
