Accommodation and Parking

Above the venue they have five beautiful apartments you can rent. This is great if you have guests coming in from out of town. Brighton also has lots of hotels including the Leonardo Royal Hotel Waterfront, Hotel Du Vin, Brighton Harbour Hotel, and The Grand to name a few. There is no parking available at Patterns so you will have to get a cab, public transport or park in one of the multi storey carparks (these are very expensive).


Patterns have worked with a catering company to create different menus for your wedding day. They offer a sit down three course meal, relaxed sharing platters, BBQ options or they can also create a bespoke menu for you. However you aren't required to use their caterers, you can provide your own food if you want to. The recommended caterers are BLT Catering.

Where can we have our wedding photos taken?

As Patterns is so close to the beach it seems like the obvious choice for your couple portraits. The beach is a great option if it's not crazy busy, and it's especially lovely at sunset. Brighton pier is a cool location for photos as well as you have the carousel, the fun fair rides and the arcade. The lanes are also close by if you wanted some photos in the town, there are lots of interesting shop fronts, textures, and street art.
