Here are a few tips for your beach, subtropical garden cove or dramatic coastline wedding.
Select that perfect dress but make sure it’s one you can run around on a beach or near a cliff in, you want light airy fabrics and your bridal boutique will be able to help advise you on the perfect dress. Ditch those high heels (well maybe after the ceremony) you are going to want to run in bare feet and to sink your toes into the golden sand…
Have fun with your wedding photographs.
The many talented photographers from across Cornwall and Devon love coastal and beach weddings, the outdoors the elements the beautiful natural light.
Perfect blue skies are wonderful but often changeable weather is actually better. Your photographer will take advantage of the dramatic skies, the beautiful light and the sunset to capture the most amazing wedding images. If you are close to the sea be prepared to get your feet wet!
A beach wedding does not have to be a summer wedding.
Think lanterns, candles and romance. A beach winter wedding can be wonderful too, dramatic skies, crashing waves, twinkling fairy lights and roaring log burners. Especially crafted winter cocktails and hearty cuisine. You will be able to create an atmospheric winter beach wedding celebration you’ll never forget
