Oh the romance of a beach wedding. The blue skies up above. The whispering palms. The waves lapping the shore. The white sand between your toes as you say 'I do'.
You don't have to worry about the weather. It's not going to rain. And you can have your wedding breakfast right there on the sand. It's as informal as you like. You can all talk and dance into the night and then watch the stars come out. Meanwhile the kids are happily playing sandcastles.
An idyllic setting
We love beach weddings - and we've made a line of destination wedding dresses with beach brides in mind. Frocks that won't crease, won't be too hot and will be a joy to travel with.
And what about your maids.? We think beach weddings equal bright colours for your girls. There's something about bright sunshine that demands something dazzling.
And your grooms can get in on the act too with aqua coloured ties, pocket handkerchiefs and waistcoats.
