Real weddings Beach

Do you love the idea of having a beach wedding? Have you always dreamed of having a beach wedding in the tropics? Just you and your husband with close family and friends on a hot sandy beach.. This section is all about beach real weddings in the UK and abroad. There are some beautiful beach real weddings to be inspired by in this section, including Brenda and Chris’s stunning beach wedding in Ibiza. Do you remember the film The Blue Lagoon? Well, that is what Egle and Mindaugas’s wedding in Fiji reminds me of, it is just too beautiful for words. If you prefer a beach wedding closer to home, take a look at Lucy and Rupert’s beach wedding in the South of France. They had a small celebration in Chelsea, London, before having their main wedding on the beach in the South of France; it is just too chic for words.
If you are planning on having your own beach wedding, I am sure these real weddings will provide you with plenty of ideas for your own big day. It is important to remember if you are planning a beach wedding in a tropical destination to opt for a lightweight wedding dress rather than one is too heavy and too difficult to transport in your luggage. Your groom should equally not opt for a heavy suit, as the last thing you will want him to do is faint whilst saying his vows. When it comes to wedding shoes for beach weddings, you can of course wear traditional wedding shoes, but are they really practical if you are getting married on the beach? It might be an idea to wear flip flops when you say your vows, then change into more formal heels when it is time for your reception.
