I have a confession to make, folks; In all of my years growing up on the coast, I have never been a fan of “the beach”. Don’t get me wrong, I like looking at it, and perhaps even taking a stroll down it; it’s just the notion of crawling around in the sand in a two piece, covered in sticky sunscreen, that doesn’t quite, pardon the pun, float my boat.
Nautical weddings, on the other hand, are a whole different story. Since my childhood days in Tsawwassen, spent growing up practically on the water, I have had a love of weathered shingles and bleached wood, sunny yellow and navy colour schemes, and ships compass inspired brass objects.
And for brides on the coast, why not embrace the idea of a casual, clambake inspired reception, complete with corn on the cob, and fresh lemonade? Take one look at this inspiration board, and I know you will agree.
