A Short Weekend in Brighton

It’s My Life: Another Personal Story

With wedding season now quietening down I had the opportunity for a short weekend trip to Brighton last weekend. As it was a family trip, with six of us in total, I arranged a Kemp Town terraced house through AirB&B for us to stay.  I won’t say too much, but the house was cool, quirky and arty and belonged to the singer of a band who had bit of a left field hit in the 1990s.

So what does a documentary wedding photographer do when not working – I did some street and documentary photography in Brighton of course!

A Street Photography Wedding Photographer

The weather on Saturday was great, warm and sunny. So this gave me plenty of opportunity to get quite a few street photography shots all along the seafront. On Saturday evening, failing to be able to get into the restaurant we wanted to eat in we ended up have a traditional seaside feast of fish and chips at home.

Unfortunately, Sunday morning was rather wet but that didn’t stop us from having a fun time playing crazy golf. I’d love to tell you that I won – sadly I finished well down the pecking order. I could blame my club, or the conditions but a good wedding photographer never blames their lens or camera 😉

Non-Traditional Wedding Photographer Goes Sunday Non Traditional!

We finished off with a firmly non-traditional Sunday lunch of burgers and fries at the JB American Diner.  After all, being a non-traditional wedding photographer I firmly believe in breaking traditions where I can. After lunch, we all went our separate ways.

It was fun and enjoyable break after such a busy summer of wedding photography. Here are a few photos from a short weekend in Brighton.

You could read about my life away from wedding photography in my It’s My Life Series which hopefully gives you more of an insight into me the individual.
