Roxy Hayde, a humanist wedding celebrant extraordinaire based in Brighton offers unique ceremonies that reflect the two of you as a couple and she gives us her top picks for Brighton wedding venues.


"Famed for its quirkiness and off-the-beaten-track options, there are so many great places to choose from. As a Brighton Humanist wedding celebrant (who has experienced a lot of weddings in the city!) I have put together a list of the best wedding venues in Brighton for you to consider.

From quirky Brighton wedding venues to intimate and outdoors, if you are wondering where to get married in Brighton, have a look at these stunning locations below."

The Spire

"The Spire is a popular wedding venue in Brighton. Known as the city’s most atmospheric venue, this previous church first built in 1849 has been given an almighty facelift and is now one of the city’s newest creative spaces as well as hosting fabulous weddings. If you want gothic-inspired drama, huge stain glass windows and impossibly high vaulted ceilings, then look no further."

Fabrica is a fantastic deconsecrated church, right in the heart of Brighton. Originally built in 1817, with its original stain glass the venue is stunning in and of itself, yet provides a gorgeous backdrop to add your own original style touches too for couples who want to make a statement. Known as Brighton’s centre for contemporary art, this venue is a real show-stopper.

The Royal Pavillion

"Can you think of anything more quintessentially Brighton that getting married at the Pavillion?! Me neither! The former royal palace, built in the romantic era of the Regency period, is easily one of the most unique buildings in the whole of the UK. What’s more, depending on what you fancy there are several staterooms to choose from, all with totally unique ornate styles and colours. This venue is sure to make your photos POP!"

The Best Brighton Wedding Venues - Brighton Pavilion

Capacity: Up to 90 seated.

What couples will love: Not only will the interior of this impressive palace make for the most unique wedding photos; you have the run of the grounds and immaculate gardens too.

Available: All year-round.

Wedding License: Yes, or you can personalise your day more with a celebrant-led ceremony.

The Band Stand

"The Band Stand on the seafront is one of the most iconic Brighton ceremony spots. The beautiful tiled floor and ornate Victorian detail make it pop against the backdrop of the sea and – if you’re lucky – blue skies. If you have dreams of a Brighton beach wedding in the open air, this could be an ideal solution for you. Even if it rains, it’s covered (albeit with open sides) but nothing some pretty umbrellas can’t withstand."

The Best Brighton Wedding Venues

Capacity: 50 seated and 30 standing.

Available: Between April – September, Wednesday – Saturday.

Cost: Starting at £680 for ceremony hire.

Wedding Licence: Yes.

"It’s no wonder a city famed for its quirkiness and originality is full of one-of-a-kind spots to get married. With so many unique and beautiful wedding venues in Brighton, it’s arguably one of the best places to get married in the UK!"


"As a celebrant, I love working couples to create deeply personal original ceremonies that perfectly compliment them and reflect the people they are, while drawing in the wonderful features of the location too."
