27 Vintage Hens go M@D in Brighton

For Flick’s hen day, only vintage would do...so 27 fabulous women donned their finest retro outfits and headed for fun in the sunshine at Brighton.

The day began at Hotel Pelirocco with hair, make up and cocktails in the rock star bar...

And once our stunning ladies were glammed to the max it was time for afternoon tea and more cocktails to get the party flowing!!

Tea over, our bride to be Flick and her  vintage belles gave it their all for the camera in and around the hotel and along the seafront where we created an iconic line up of dazzling beauties in the sunshine...

What a fun and fabulous day to start Flick’s wedding celebrations!




Bad Ass Girls .... Graffiti ....Snog...Street Dancers = ROCKSTAR !!!!!

When Velvet Storm decide to take on London, boy do they do it in style!!

An urban loft, courtesy of @2ndnest, provided the base for the team to explore and create with our fabulous models on this shoot along the river Thames. We worked our way from Vauxhall to the famous Southbank skatepark discovering awesome locations all along this route to provide breathtaking backdrops for every shot. From sleek black marble walls reflecting the late evening riverside light to the hustle and bustle of the Southbank, Izzie and Jasmine owned every shot and certainly stood out from the crowd!! 

Pink certainly made the girls wink when we took over the top deck of the Snog Bus....

And when we hit the street art tunnel, our imaginations were fired up and Izzie and Jasmine went absolutely wild.....

This shoot was FAB-U-LOUS...VSP even managed to sneak a cheeky night out dancing afterwards...

Check out the images to see just how fabulous it was..though the dancing videos are strictly not for sharing!!! 


Grace & Rob - A Beautiful Wedding Day @ Gildredge Manor

Wow!  2017 was so busy for us here at Velvet Storm Photography I cant believe it’s been nearly a year since the last blog!! We’ve got a lot of catching up to do....

Rob and Grace @ Gildredge Manor Eastbourne, 6th May 2017

Well this wedding certainly had fun stamped all over it. 

Our fabulous bride and groom , Rob and Grace knew exactly how to celebrate their special day, with love, loads of laughter and even a tug of war thrown in! 

The beautiful venue allowed for lots of craziness in the grounds and even indoors we could let our imagination go wild...I even recall being ridden like a horse at one point...all in a days work at VSP!!

The colour purple was everywhere, from the groom and his crews cool ties to the bridesmaids dresses, bouquets and cake and I think you’ll agree that this vivid shade rocks as much as our bride and groom do in these images!

The party went well into the night with much dancing and merriment....

We had so much fun sharing your special day with you, we were only sad we had to leave!!

Emma and Stefan @ The Bell Ticehurst 7th April 2018

We had so much fun with Emma and Stefan whose wedding day began with a church ceremony at Buxted Church.

During the reception our funky couple were happy to head off into the local High street for some photos...we even took over The Artichoke Gallery for a while.. creating stunning images amongst the stunning art!

Emma and Stefan were happy to let us roll with the fun and when we ended up with them in the shower and the copper bath in The Bell’s Love Nest...we knew we’d struck pure gold...check them out below!!

Sheila & Keith @ South Lodge Hotel

Sheila and Keith @ South Lodge Hotel, Sussex 26th March 2018

There was not a dry eye in the house when Sheila and Keith renewed their wedding vows at South Lodge Hotel.

Sheila wore a stunning custom made dark green dress which set off her gorgeous red hair magnificently. But such finery didn’t stop her getting down with the daffodils for some amazing photos!

Keith looked very dapper in his grey suit and the depth of the love between this fabulous couple was so evident when they read those vows and in the intimate images we took of them in the grounds of South Lodge.

It was incredible for us to be able to bring the generations of this family together in the images we took..a real legacy for such amazing people.

We loved this day so much….thank you both for inviting Velvet Storm to be part of it x

Naomi & Perry @ Deans Place Hotel

Naomi and Perry @ Deans Place Hotel, Sussex - March 2018

2018 has started with a bang here at Velvet Storm and we kicked off this year with Naomi and Perry’s wedding at Deans Place Hotel.

Our bride and her maids were the epitome of elegance (even when the bride was jumping up and down on the bed!)

The groom, best man and the couple’s two cheeky chappies rocked their three-piece blue suits...Those boys certainly knew how to play up to the camera!!

The reception was full of laughter and fun..check out the images below to see just how much laughter was had..especially when the bridal crew nearly dropped the groom.... sorry about that Perry!!

Thanks guys for a fabulous start to Velvet Storms wedding season...


Harry & James - Malmaison Boutique Hotel Brighton Marina

The new Mr & Mr - Harry & James wedding @ The Malmaison Boutique Hotel was always going to be fun & different. From the gorgeous blue designer suits & diamond encrusted wedding gift skulls this wedding was a fab journey right from the beginning. With a simple and lovely ceremony conducted at the Malmaison Hotel Brighton Marina. 

The party soon began afterwards with a host of colourful & fabulous friends. We took the boys down into the Marina for some personal photographs on the jetty & around the Marina complex itself - it attracted lots of attention as people thought it was a fashion shoot and why not they looked completely stunning in their custom made designer suits.

Blue is the new Black - You guys owned it !!!!
