Reasons to have a seafront wedding

With summer days rolling in quickly there’s nothing more romantic than a wedding by the sea

Here at Wedding Journal Online we have a special soft spot for seafront wedding days; from the glorious beach photo-shoots to the relaxed holiday vibe, there really must be something in that sea air…

Perfect photography opportunities

Wedding photographers adore seafront wedding venues for their close proximity to the beach, providing the perfect backdrop for dreamy snaps that will last a lifetime. Glistening shores, rugged scenery and quirky beach huts is the only decor you’ll ever need.

Nestled in Galway Bay, Salthill Hotel is renowned for being one of Ireland’s most sought after seafront hotels. At this opulent seaside venue, couple’s are spoiled for choice with a plethora of stunning locations in which to take their wedding photographs; from a walk along the pebbled beach to the striking promenade. Post ceremony, when adrenaline is running high, steal a few moments away from the crowd on the hotel’s rooftop sky suite with its breath-taking views over the ocean.

Tasty treats

There’s something just that little bit more fun about a wedding beside the sea. Personalise your big day with a quirky menu to wow your guests, something that the dedicated team at Salthill Hotel are delighted to help you put together. One sniff of the salty sea breeze and you’ll be longing for a plate of crispy, hot fish and chips or a mouth-watering barbeque.

Sweet treats are always a popular way to win over your guests and accommodating venues like the Salthill Hotel will welcome the addition of quirky touches to your big day. Hire an ice-cream bicycle to enjoy a cone or two while sipping on champagne on the hotel’s beautiful outdoor terrace, or substitute a traditional candy cart to include seaside favourites; rock, honeycomb and giant dummy lollies.

Wedding Extras

Having undergone a recent renovation, complete with statement mirrors and brand new plush furnishings, the elegant art-deco inspired Salthill Hotel requires little decoration for those dreaming of a sophisticated, hassle free day.

However, if you wish to continue the seaside theme Salthill’s motto is “Tell us about your dream day, and let us make those dreams come true”. Personalise the space with bold, brightly coloured flowers, DIY centrepieces made with shells, sand and pebbles from romantic walks along the beach and message in a bottle favours. At the Salthill Hotel it really is your day, your way.
