Choosing a starting time for your beach wedding……
Its really up to you what time of the day you want to have your beach wedding. We would recommend early in the day when the sun is not so hot or later in the afternoon when the sun is starting to go down a little. There will probably be less people on the beach at these times and it would be more comfortable if it is a hot day. Remember to take into consideration day light savings time. You will need to leave enough time for your wedding photos after your ceremony. This is something your photographer can best recomend.
