Real Weddings / Beach

A beach wedding can be as relaxed, or as formal as you would like. It could be a simple gathering of your family and friends, with no shoes and the sand between your toes. Or you can create a formal setting with marquee, seating and all the lavish decorations.

When planning your beach wedding you will have a unique set of requirements to consider: a wet-weather plan, parasols to protect from the sun, easy access for elderly or disabled guests, someone to watch the little ones, and planning for a particularly wild and windy day. But after all that, a beach wedding can be one of the most visually stunning events, celebrating the natural beauty of sun, sand and sea.
