Wedding Venues - Brighton/Sussex
- Amex Community Stadium - The home ground to Premiership football team Brighton Albion. Built in 2011 in the town of Falmer it is a modern eye-catching design. The stadium features conference and event facilities and I have taken part in several Wedding Fairs in one of the large halls. Located on the A27 , with a large car park and with local bus and train connections, travel is easy With a spectacular backdrop to your special day. State-of-the-art facilities and stunning views of the countryside.
- Brighton Town Hall & Registry Office - A grade l listed building right in the centre of Brighton. A choice of three beautiful ceremony rooms. This historic building has a special feel and features some excellent staircases for photographs. Near to hotels, a few minutes from the seafront and an amazing choice of restaurants, makes this a very popular choice for couples that opt for a Registry Office wedding and all that this vibrant city has to offer.
- Brighton Band Stand - One of Brighton's key landmarks, wedding ceremonies can be held on it. But not everyone realises that there is a room beneath where ceremonies can take place. So if the weather is not great this is ideal. Exit right on the seafront , have photos on this ornate architecture. Offering the perfect choice for couples wanting an elegant beachside ceremony.
- British Airways i360 - Another major Brighton landmark. Imagine getting married 450ft above Brighton & Hove beach! A futuristic glass 360 degree viewing pod makes a spectacular setting. Exit the pod into a very large hall-sized room for your reception and party. Wow-factor venue.
