WEYMOUTH BEACH WEDDINGS

On Saturday 11th June, Fox & Star Ceremonies became the first Celebrant to officiate a wedding ceremony on Weymouth Beach.

The couple Kirstein and Matt approached us 11 months ago and asked if it was possible. We said it hadn’t ever been done before but, it wasn’t to say that it couldn’t be done.


We are so proud to have made this happen and be preferred supplier going forward.

The event was quintessential Great British seaside with a donkey accompanying the bride down the aisle followed by 99 ice-creams, rides and fish and chips overlooking the harbour.


The ceremony including a sand ritual and a handtying with the couple sharing their vows with not only their guests, but onlookers on the beach.

The wedding was as eco-friendly as possible. We used ribbon made from recycled plastics for their handtying chord and the confetti was made from dried flowers.
