high seas and strong winds didn’t dampen the spirits at this hove wedding

We battened down the hatches for brides preparations at Hove seafront on Saturday, having been lashed against the railings by the galeforce winds whilst making my way there. I needed excellent foresight for this wedding, because of the cold wind, but most of all I needed a brave bride and groom! Zandra, the bride, wasn’t phased by the weather and Patrick, the groom, would find his strength from his new wife’s resolve (sorry Patrick but you know how cold you were). This really was the coldest weather I have experienced at a wedding and all because of the wind chill. The trick with inclement weather is to take every opportunity and we did just that. Having started at Hove seafront, we made our way to St Margaret’s Church, Rottingdean for a lovely service by my favourite vicar, Father Martin. After the ceremony we headed off to the Hove Club for a Morrocan feast, stopping off midway at the Brighton Bandstand for a lightning quick photo session. The brief had always been ‘little intervention’ with lots of natural shots, so without further ado, here’s my take on a natural and thoroughly enjoyable windy wedding day. Congratulations Patrick and Zandra and best wishes for your wonderful future together!

I’d like to also give a quick mention to Ross Rolls Royce for the fabulous Rolls Royce 20/25 Saloon

What wonderful photos! Unfortunately I was unable to attend my cousin’s wedding but with these really well crafted photos I felt I had been there too. I felt just as emotional as if I had been right there. Congratulations to my gorgeous cousin and her groom. Love you all.

Well done Paul Fletcher Photography! Fabulous! The scenery photos were excellent and dramatic! :)

Thank you Penny, that’s a lovely accolade and I’m so pleased I managed to portray the wonderful atmosphere of the day and not just weatherwise!

Dear Paul

Wonderful photos, and such a good write-up too! Thank you so much for doing your bestest (and achieving excellent results!) in the face of adverse weather and a room so full of people that it was difficult to navigate at times… but, as usual, you did it all with a smile and panache.
Thanks for recording it all for us to enjoy for many years to come, you are a star!

Best wishes,
