With summer just around the corner, we’re busy dreaming about faraway sun-drenched destinations! With that mind, today we’re talking all about beach weddings with a difference. From chandelier-adorned marquees to clifftop ceremonies with unrivalled sea views, get your dose of luxury beach wedding inspiration...
Whether you’re tying the knot in Bali, the Maldives or another far-flung location, a destination wedding has so many gorgeous options for your ceremony. A floral archway isn’t just for a garden wedding, in fact, quite the opposite! Statement floral installations can instantly add a touch of extravagance to a destination wedding, especially against the contrast of the sand, sea and sunshine. Go all out with your floral archway by opting for tropical colour-popping blooms that are guaranteed to stand out. You can then use the archway for a photography backdrop after your ceremony too. We recommend using the same style of flowers throughout the rest of your beach wedding to give your day a coordinated feel. Speaking of photo backdrops, a beach wedding will seriously spoil you so ask your photographer to make the most of them!

Add elegance to your beach wedding with a white marquee on miles of white sand. Not only does it offer you tonnes of space for swoon-worthy styling and décor, it’s always good to have a plan B in case. Just because it’s the beach, it doesn’t mean your wedding will be weather-proof. If you want a destination celebration that screams luxury, we suggest handing multiple chandeliers from the ceiling of the marquee, or drape flowing organza around the marquee entrance.
Spoil your guests with luxurious relaxation and chill out areas. White beds adorned with colourful scatter cushions promise your loved ones the perfect spot to relax and unwind with a cocktail or two, while soaking up the atmosphere of your beach soirée.
What could be more incredible than wining and dining with your guests on the beach itself? Celebrate and feast on fabulous seafood, dance the night away under the stars and create an epic experience for your guests.

If you want a blissful beach wedding that is nothing short of spectacular, don’t compete the peacefulness of your surroundings. Instead, opt for elements that complement your setting. While you may find yourself getting swept up in a frenzy of tropical hues, don’t be afraid to stick to a neutral coastal colour palette – both can be luxurious.
Sunshine-filled skies, sand between your toes and a honeymoon on your doorstep, we can certainly see why you might fancy the thought of a destination wedding…
