Many brides we see dream of incorporating the ocean into their big day, and with the Atlantic Ocean outside every window of the hotel, we’ve found five subtle ways to help you incorporate your love of the Cornish beaches into your big day.
There’s certain poetry to a bride wearing pearls during a coastal ceremony, it’s a subtle nod to the magic of mermaids and the beauty and serenity of the sea.
A dash of coral on a wedding day just gives a hint of summer shindigs by the seaside and is a theme that can be delicately carried throughout both bridal party and groomsmen.
Just spot the colourful pocket square of the Best Man at the bar as he prepares for his speech.
A product of the sea is always a fine sight at The Atlantic Hotel, and a table centrepiece in our Grand Ballroom showcasing driftwood in a new, glamorous light looks superb for vows by the waterside.
A cork-stoppered memory:
Let your guests take a little piece of heaven home with them.
Miniature cork-stoppered jars of sand are a delightful way to bring a seaside theme to a wedding day, especially as it’s as if the moment you say ‘I do’ next to Fistral Beach has been captured for everyone to hold close to their hearts forever. Why not send message-in-a-bottle type invitations as a continuation of the theme?
Pebble place cards:
These aren’t just pretty; they’re practical, too! Doubling up as favours, writing guests’ names on pebbles or shells instead of place cards gives a taste of the beach without going overboard.
These are just a few suggestions. From tables named after beaches you’ve had picnics on to hues of blues for your bridesmaids or a fish and chip supper followed by Cornish ice cream, there are no limits to a stylish beach-themed wedding and with views of the stunning sea from every room at the Atlantic, you couldn’t hold it in a better location.
