We love a beach wedding. Stunning views, a gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony, fresh sea air and the holiday vibe that comes with being by the beach! There are lots of reasons to choose a beachside location for your wedding. Here we share the top 7 reasons our brides at Newport Sands chose a beach location for their wedding.

Casual or Formal
A wedding on the beach can be so flexible depending on your vision for your perfect day. Whether it’s barefoot canapés on the sand, a formal, elegant coastal affair or something in between, it will work perfectly alongside a beach front location.

A Gorgeous Theme
A beach theme presents so many options for table decor, flower choices, colour scheme, wedding stationery and more. From table centres made from driftwood and seashells, pre-dinner cocktails (we’re thinking tequila sunrise, sunset beach or even pina colada), the inclusion of coastal wildflowers in your bouquet, fish & chips in newspaper for your evening guests or a beautiful colour palette using beach inspired colours from bright pinks and electric aquas, to sunny yellows and oranges or summery pastels, let your creative side shine through.

Stunning Photography
Surely one of the biggest pluses that comes hand-in-hand with a beachside wedding are the endless, beautiful photo opportunities. From an intimate moment to yourselves in the sand dunes to fun and frolics on the sand with your wedding party, you won’t be disappointed when you sit down to enjoy your wedding album for years to come.

Enjoy the View
Of course, ever bride wants their guests to have a memorable day and what could be more perfect than a stunning view of golden sand and azure water to enjoy during the day? Whether as a stunning backdrop for the ceremony, whilst enjoying drinks and canapés, when the wedding breakfast is being served or after-dinner drinks

Make a Weekend of it
The right venue can double up as a fantastic holiday destination. You and your guests can make a weekend or even a week of it and enjoy a relaxing holiday as well as a wedding. Or you can start your honeymoon every by taking the opportunity to relax and enjoy your first few days as husband and wife.

Stand Out from the Crowd
There are countless village halls, stately homes and hotels in every county. But very few places boast breathtakingly beautiful sea-side locations perfectly suited to a wedding. Be unique

A Romantic Affair
Every wedding should be filled with love and romance, and a beach side location has an undeniably romantic feel. From shimmering water, strolls across the sand or the sound of ocean and the gentle sea breeze, it’s a beautiful place to start your life together.
