The 7 most important things not to forget for your perfect Central Coast beach wedding...
Time of Day - Where's the Sun?
You are outside. Sometimes it is ridiculously hot. You have to consider guest comfort, sun in the eyes, photography needs, frail and elderly concerns and hydrating your guests. You need to consider the local weather when planning any outdoor ceremony.
Have you considered the softness of the ground?
Sand, grass, rocks, mud, wet/dry all of these play a role in the safety and confidence your guests have moving around the ceremony venue. Think it through from the perspective of your guests, safety concerns and weather.
Do you have all the equipment you need?
Have you ever gone to a beautiful headland and realised there is no where to sit. You need to plan to have enough furniture and structure (e.g. Shade or Wedding Arch?)..
Access to power and lighting?
As an outdoor-ready Celebrant, I always come with my Battery-powered PA system.
Planning for emergency weather.
Always have a plan for what to do if the skies open expectantly
Finding the ceremony venue on the day.
Make sure you provide guests with a map and instructions to the ceremony location..
Outdoor weddings are by definition held in uncontrolled, often wild environments.
The most important thing you can be is flexible and resilient in the face of whatever happens. In my experience, it is the quirks that make each wedding unique and special!
