Now, the first question we always get asked by couples looking into having a beach wedding with us is… ‘But what about the weather? Won’t the day be ruined if it rains?’ Your day will absolutely not be ruined in any way, shape or form! Last summer one couple who got married with us, it rained all day. However, this is what they said about their special day – “It was absolutely amazing from start to finish and the best day – despite the weather we had some beautiful pictures and the girls were all amazing. It just goes to show a bit of wind and rain can’t spoil a Beach Weddings Bournemouth day!”

But if you are still worried, then maybe invest in some wedding umbrellas as a back up. There are some beautiful options available and we think they create some really great photo opportunities, whether its to provide cover from the rain or provide shade from the sun. Umbrellas can be fantastic for parasols too. We do have a few of our own that we keep on the wedding hut but if you would like to buy your own or would like some to match your styling then there are some ideas from you below.
This beautiful shot is one of our couples who had a wonderfully sunny day so used a lace parasol- I think you’ll agree that the addition of the umbrella really makes the photo.

Lace parasol- fabulous for a vintage theme but would suit any theme. Lace parasols are very romantic and look wonderful in photos. You might be busy worrying about the rain but don’t forget the sun does come out during the summer! You might need a parasol to keep the sun off of you if it is sunny as otherwise you may get quite hot in your wedding dress.

When Nadia and Saabe married with us they were expecting a rainy day so brought this lovely umbrella with them – then the sun shone down on them for their gorgeous beach ceremony!

Here are some of our favourites : –
Pretty white with ruffles- we have some very similar to this. White always looks very beautiful and romantic.
Very stylish and vintage with stripes and spots
A beautiful pagoda umbrella which comes in lots of different colours so you’ll be sure to find one that matches your theme! Umbrellas or parasols and be great for a splash of colour in your photos too.
Love this- very romantic but subtle with the heart shaped petals sprinkled across the umbrella
We also have a couple of these umbrellas at Beach Weddings Bournemouth- they really are very beautiful and will suit any style wedding
Beautiful paper parasol with Chinese style detailing- this is a beautiful romantic addition to a wedding
A little bit of fun – One of our brides with her bridesmaids with their heart shaped umbrellas- these come in lots of colours- a red or pink one would look really fun!
