The Journey to Brighton

Diary of a Wedding Planner


Regular followers of the blog and my Oh So Exclusive – Diary of a Wedding Planner category will know that this weekend is the Under The Vintage Veil bash in Brighton which I’ve been banging on about for the last month, as I pieced together the bits of my outfit ready for this Sunday’s party.

Well here I am, bags packed and on the train heading to Brighton!

My outfit is finally complete and ready to come out and play on Sunday. I decided to adjust my flower headband slightly after it arrived last week, and have since added some more purple flowers to match my colour shoes and some green foliage, making the overall item look more Paloma Faith than Lana Del Rey now, and even more fabulous! It’s certainly an eye-catcher of an accessory, but the dress code is ‘Bright and Bold, Glitz and Glam’ so I think it ticks all the boxes!

I can’t wait to arrive in Brighton – this iconic sea-side town is my second home. My father was born here, and growing up my most cherished memories are of summers and winters spent staying with my Grandparents in Embassy Court (true Brightonians will know all about Embassy Court!)

This weekend I will be staying with my aunt and uncle before I meet the girls on Sunday for the event, and I’m really looking forward to catching up with family in a town which never fails to make me smile.

My favourite thing about Brighton? The fact that it allows you to be anyone you want to be, without challenge or raised eyebrows. Probably a good thing considering my new piece of headwear….!

I’ve not yet had the pleasure of planning a wedding in Brighton, but I hope that one day I may do. Or, perhaps I’ll come across a couple in Wales with a personal link to my favourite city who’d like to bring Brighton into their wedding theme. Either way, I’d welcome any excuse to order a cake from Choccywoccydoodah sometime soon!!

I hope you have a fabulous weekend, I can’t wait to bring you the gossip and photos soon!

With love, Samantha x
