Recently engaged? Always dreamed of having a seaside wedding? When it comes to locations to have a seaside wedding, Brighton is one of the first places that comes to mind for many couples looking to tie the knot. 

Brighton is not only near the sea, but it’s also home to our showroom, which opened in December 2022. We have a wide range of men’s and women’s wedding rings to choose from, so you can express your love and commitment for one another with a pair of wedding bands. 

With there being so many wedding venues in Brighton to choose from to host your dream seaside wedding, we’ve picked our favourite venues to help make that big day even more special.

The Bandstand at Brighton Beach

The Bandstand is one of the oldest bandstands that’s still standing in England. It first opened in 1884 and provides a stunning backdrop for a seaside wedding, particularly when it comes to taking wedding photographs.

Whether you have an afternoon or evening wedding, the view alone of the sea in the background is truly beautiful. When it comes to the right time to host a wedding at this venue, we recommend having your ceremony when the weather is warm and sunny, with barely a breeze outside. It’ll be a day that you’ll both remember for the rest of your lives.

Brighton Harbour Hotel

Brighton Harbour Hotel, located right between two piers and the Brighton promenade is a great venue for holding seaside weddings. 

With 79 rooms for your guests to stay in, as well as the option to have a themed wedding, you can design the theme of your wedding to suit you. Whether you want a Vegas-inspired white chapel wedding to a vintage or rock theme, you can tailor the setting to suit you, making it one wedding you’ll never forget.

Brighton Palace Pier

When you first think of Brighton, you instantly think of Brighton Palace Pier. The Pier first opened at the turn of the 20th century in 1899 and is a quirky venue for wanting an alternative touch to their wedding celebrations. After the ceremony, you can treat yourselves to a portion of fish and chips, provided you watch out for the seagulls!

Mercure Brighton Seafront Hotel

There is no shortage of venues in Brighton to hold a memorable seaside wedding and the Mercure Brighton Seafront Hotel ticks all those boxes.

This Grade II-listed Victorian hotel overlooks the Brighton seafront and promenade, providing plenty of opportunities for wedding photos. Its high-ceilinged ballroom has exquisitely designed chandeliers and is able to accommodate 180 guests for the ceremony. Within the hotel, there’s 123 bedrooms available for guests to stay in overnight.
