As the saying goes, life’s a beach, so who wouldn’t want to enjoy their wedding day on one?
Beaches are a fun alternative to the traditional church or hotel weddings and are the perfect choice for some couples, particularly those who dream of endless summers and love nothing more than walking along the sand and gazing at the ocean.
If you’re tying the knot in the UK, don’t let the prospect of wind and rain put you off. While you can’t guarantee good weather like you can in more tropical destinations, beach weddings in this country can still be gorgeous.
Read on for some of our top reasons as to why you should have a beach wedding in the UK.
Your photographs will be amazing
Bored of seeing the same stiff wedding photographs of people crowded in church courtyards or hotel receptions? Yep, us too. Beach weddings are great because there is so much open space and surrounding scenery, meaning that you are sure to get some stunning snaps that will rival those of any of your friends who just recently tied the knot.
You could even encourage guests to take their shoes off for a laid-back feel that will mirror the vibe of the day perfectly.
The ambience is second to none
You can deck out a reception room with flowers and candles, but nothing can truly rival the natural beauty of a beach. The crashing waves, glistening sands and surrounding greenery means that all of your decorating has been done for you by nature, so less effort on your part too. Your guests are also sure to love the relaxed mood that the location offers. We all have fond memories of beaches so you can expect all of your guests to be smiling and enjoying themselves.
There are ways to escape the bad weather
The UK is renowned for being a rainy country, so naturally many couples are put off the idea of a beach wedding due to fears that the weather won’t hold up. Sure, there is always a risk of this, but if you choose a month like July or August, you are much more likely to see sun as opposed to rain on your big day.
Our wedding barn also means that you can enjoy all the natural beauty of a beach wedding and still have somewhere to retreat to if the weather takes a turn for the worst.
The Barn on The Bay is a Beachside Farm Wedding Venue on the Northumberland Coast. We have a rustic farm barn and our own stretch of beach as well as accommodation in our lovely bunkbarn, beachside campsite, pop up glamping and beautiful cottage with hot tub.
