Coastal wedding venues are some of the most beautiful, picturesque locations available for your big day, with sweeping vistas of blue ocean and foaming waves and miles upon miles of UK coastline. Weddings by the sea offer stunning backdrops with sunrises or sunsets over the water, secret caves and coves, and gorgeous beaches full of soft sand or pebble shores. Coastal wedding venues are magnificent in the warm summer months, but they’re just as beautiful under a moody winter sky. Consider a nautical themed wedding full of pretty seashells, maps, compasses, and nautical stars.
Coastal wedding venues include grand cliff top castles by the sea or intimate beach houses, luxurious suites and penthouses, harbour hotels or breezy bay piers, or even something more unusual such as a fort or moored boat just off-shore. Seaside wedding venues are versatile coastal wedding venues that offer formal indoor weddings with panoramic views over the sea and sit-down dining, or a more relaxed, beachfront experience complete with evening bonfires.
Locations of protected natural beauty in the UK are perfect settings for a wedding by the sea, including the craggy coastlines of Cornwall, the iconic White Cliffs of Dover, the open, west-facing seascape and sandy beaches of Wales, and the rugged Scottish coast where, if you’re lucky, you may get the chance to see the Northern Lights. These are fantastic opportunities to capture some of the most jaw-dropping photos for your wedding photo album, and you might even want to consider a fairground location or a historic dockyard for a fun after-wedding photo shoot.
Coastal weddings are the answer you are looking for whether you are after a secluded beach on a sheltered corner of a National Park, like the breathtaking Pembrokeshire Coast National Park full of amazing wildlife and coastal trails, or a beloved national landmark like Land’s End in Cornwall.
