I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside: Lindsey and Adam at The Grand, Eastbourne


With Lindsey hailing from Brighton and Adam coming from Bournemouth, their wedding was always destined to be within easy reach of some rickety deck chairs, excitable seagulls and an overpriced ’99’ with a flake. It was no surprise that they chose quaint Eastbourne, and the stunning surroundings of The Grand Hotel.

This was a truly beautiful day, such an elegant occasion blessed with incredible weather – the perfect setting for Lindsey and Adam to be surrounded by family and friends. There were moments of emotion, as well as loads of laughter… with Adam being the fourth runner-up in the ‘Jewish Comedian of the Year’, we would expect nothing less! Lindsey took everyone’s breath away, she looked like a real princess in her wedding dress as she walked down the aisle. Rabbi Soetendorp oversaw the wedding ceremony under the Chuppah, whilst the amazing Francesca of XS Showband delivered the Sheva Brachot with real style to a range of beautiful tunes, much to the delight of everyone in the room.

Whilst Lindsey had a relaxing morning getting ready with her gorgeous Bridesmaids Danielle and Tara in their incredible suite, Adam led his squad of men for a walk on the beach, an ice-cream, and an impromptu comedy performance on the Eastbourne Bandstand to a huge crowd of 12 people.

After a sun-kissed reception on the lawn, guests entered the ornate Ballroom and were treated to a wonderful evening, with entertainment from XS Showband, along with a couple of surprise musical performances from Lindsey and Adam’s friends. Throughout the entire wedding, including Adam’s hilarious speech, there was such a warmth in the room with everybody feeling so much love for this very amazing couple.

Mazal Tov again to Lindsey and Adam, the parents Marty and Ray, and Ruth and David, and all the families. Here are some of our favourite moments from such a special day. Always remember, ‘Never forget your swimming trunks.’
