Beach-side restaurant turning wedding venue

Stunning views of the ocean and a catering menu to impress all guests made this couple's wedding perfect. Couple: Ashley & Jacob Location: Seacliff Restaurant, Wollongong In 2007, Ashley was training for the Endurance Surf Life Saving event and was swimming regularly. Meetings at the pool led to coffees between university classes and the rest is history. Jacob proposed in Port Macquarie at the Cassegrain Winery, the day after they had both completed the Ironman Australia Triathlon. “One day it seemed like the wedding was months away and the next day it was here,” says Ashley. And for this excited bride, an unexpected hurdle arose at the last minute. “The wedding day started off a bit differently as I had woken up with a stomach bug and was finding it difficult to move, let alone get into my wedding dress! However, a panicked trip to the medical centre and some medication and observation got me back to normal functioning. Add hair and makeup and I was feeling like a bride.” Dressed in a Mori Lee strapless ball gown wedding dress with Swarovski crystal embellishments, from Sposabella Bridal Fairy Meadow, Ashley walked down the aisle of the St Francis Xavier Cathedral, Wollongong, to “Canon in D Major” by Pachelbel. The happy couple’s 140 guests then moved to the Seacliff Restaurant, Wollongong, where they feasted on canapés of barramundi and oysters followed by Cajun spiced salmon filet with Cajun spices and brandy butter served with fennel and potato galette or roasted herb-crusted veal cutlet served with a mushroom cream sauce at the reception. Bride's Advice: “Plan and prepare early so that you can relax and enjoy the day. Trust your suppliers and reception venue and try not to overthink the preparation too much as it is very easy to get caught up and stressed over minor details. When the day arrives, let go of the preparation and organisation and enjoy it no matter what happens.”

Thinking of having an awesome beach wedding?  Wanting to tie the knot whilst gazing out over the deep blue ocean?  Nothing radiates romance and charm quite like a beach wedding and to make it all the more seaside decadent, let's take a sneak peek at what you'll need to make those tropical dream nuptials complete!

The Beach Wedding Invites

From sky blue invites right down to sandy seahorse shaped ones, your invites need to ooze your theme of that one and only, beach wedding perfection!

The Beach Wedding Dress

When you looking for that perfect beach wedding dress for your awesome beach wedding, make sure that you buy something that is befitting to its surroundings!  Sheath wedding dresses made of chiffon, for example, are magical for a beach wedding.  They shimmer and flow in the breeze and they are also lightweight and portable for travel.  Hoops and petticoats don't pack down into suitcases so easily!

Guys, this is the moment that you get to wear the lightweight linen suit that you know looks so good - it's the dream wear for that beachside wedding!

Time Your Beach Wedding Right

If you're beachside and it's full summer, remember that the afternoon may leave you and your guests swooning with heat exhaustion!  Beach weddings are glorious, yet beach weddings can also be punishing if it's in the full heat of the day!

Have chilled water available for your guests along with maybe some hand held fans and sunscreen wipes!  You don't want your beach wedding to be filled with memories of people suffering!

Beach Wedding Flower Power

Make sure that you consult with your beach wedding florist for the very best of blooms that will withstand the heat!  Think about orchids, hydrangeas or dahlias!  They are the perfect beach weather floral choice, yet be sure to have some water spray handy just in case! 

You'll also need to pay care and attention to your beach wedding bridesmaids bouquets too - don't forget the members of your beach wedding entourage!

Beach Wedding Photography

Precisely how much fun can you have with this one!  Create some great and fun beach wedding photographs with the world being your oyster and the ocean being at your feet!  However, pay heed when choosing a beach wedding photographer.  You will need to interview and investigate and choose one that's used to beach wedding photography.  There are issues with differences in lightings and environments when it comes to beach weddings and you can't afford to get it wrong!

The Beach Wedding Note...

Mother nature and beach weddings don't always work hand in hand!  Have a plan B... you never know, your beach wedding may need one!
