For couples that have always dreamed of tying the knot with the sand between their toes, it is not necessary to go abroad for this. Beach weddings in Britain can be just as stunning as any other location, plus it saves a lot of money, hassle of flights, and means that more of the friends and family that are invited will be able to make it.
There are a large number of beautiful beaches around the UK that are perfect settings for a wedding, with the sunset, sunrise, waves or cliffs, it will certainly be picturesque. Weddings Eastbourne are very popular, with the cliffs and beach creating a beautiful postcard setting. Other locations that are admired for British beach weddings include St Brelade’s Bay in Jersey, Brighton, Falmouth in Cornwall, Braunton in Devon, Anglesey in Wales and many areas in Scotland such as Skye, Lewis and Harris, and Mallaig.
Of course, as with most outdoor weddings in the UK, the main risk of organising a beach wedding is the weather. However, the weather from May to September is usually good enough for a beach setting and should be fairly nice. The best thing to do when planning the wedding is to have a backup plan just in case the weather is not good enough. This can include a covered area on the beach, or even a venue that is overlooking or even on the beach. Many hotels and wedding venues are set on the edge of a beach and can offer indoor or covered areas with a beach view.
