An intimate ceremony, wild flowers, glorious sunshine, a stroll along the sea front, bright coloured lanterns and a Beatles tribute band to finish the day…. Brighton at its best!
Eleanor and Martin are one of those truly happy couples, so full of life and energy, who’s laughter and smiles are infectious!
The couple said ‘I do’ in an intimate ceremony followed by photos in a beautiful public garden and then on to the pebbled beach with Brighton’s iconic pier in the background. The main reception was held at The Old Market which is a theatre and live show venue, very apt for Eleanor & Martin’s creative personalities, so the space was quite dark with an industrial looking ceiling full of light rigging and metal work; the bride wanted to inject bright colour in a fun and quirky style to lighten the room and detract from the ceiling.
With no particular colour scheme the couple simply requested to recreate the combinations of coloured lanterns seen on our “Mad Hatters” lantern inspiration page on our website. Our wedding advisor, Natalie, put together a selection of bold and vibrant colours to suit, in a mixture of sizes from 12” up to 18” all in the even ribbed round lantern style. For a textured effect we recommend combining at least 4 sizes to create enough contrast for a ‘busy’ vibe. A total of 50 lanterns were used in this 16m x 11m space.
“The lanterns were brilliant, a really great mix of colours and exactly what I wanted. They really worked with the venue and just added some fun to the room. Thank you so much for all of your help!”
