Sun, sand and weddings are a match made in heaven – who doesn’t get into party mood at the seaside? So whether it’s the turquoise waters of the Aegean, the cool glamour of Oz or the breezy and beautiful British shore, our Absolutely Weddings Beach Style wedding album is pure ozone magic


Words by Libby Norman

Beach style weddings are deservedly popular – we all love a trip to the seaside and a wedding on the shore puts everybody into holiday mood. Whether your taste is a tropical or sun-baked paradise, or you prefer a spot of wild nature or kiss me quick on the British shore, there’s no shortage of destinations where you can create a unique and magical celebration.
