Moodboard: we do like to be beside the seaside!


The sand between your toes, sea air catching your veil, ice cream dripping down your chin, and the best man getting buried in the sand. Sound like your ideal big day? Scotland has no shortage of fantastic seaside wedding venues, including The Waterside Hotel, Seamill Hydro, Crear and Portavadie Marina, but even if you’re getting hitched far away from the waves, a sprinkle of beachy touches sets an insouciant summer scene. No sunburn, no jellyfish – no bother!
