With its central location in the heart of the city and its unique character, Brighton Town Hall is one of the best places to have a registry wedding ceremony in Brighton. It’s just a short walk from the beach and close to loads of cool restaurants and pubs which are perfect for a post ceremony celebration with friends and family. I’ve shared some of my favourites below.
The Town Hall is a Grade 1 listed building with giant ionic columns and three different ceremony rooms that can accommodate weddings of different sizes (details below). All rooms are gorgeous with original features such as carved chairs and leather inlaid desks. As a Brighton wedding photographer I’ve been lucky enough to capture many ceremonies here with different couples, always enjoying the diversity of each wedding and the proximity to cool graffiti streets and the beach.
