Centrepiece ideas for a beach wedding

Beautiful and exotic, Gibraltar provides an ideal opportunity to get married and have a honeymoon in one stunning location. Camp Bay, Little Beach Bay, and Catalan Bay all offer enviable coastal views of glittering waters and startling sunsets, while Eastern Beach offers the most impressive view of the Rock of Gibraltar.

While beach weddings are not permitted in Gibraltar, you can still get married in sight of the enchanting coastline and include a beach theme for your big day. In this blog, we’ll offer brides and grooms tying the knot in the British Overseas territory some inspiration for centrepieces for a wedding with a beach motif.

Go floral

For those favouring tradition with a floral arrangement, one flower shines above the rest. Gibraltar’s pretty but hardy Candytuft is well known for growing in coastal locations. Its ability to spring up even in the craggiest parts of the headland has made it a favourite for those with rockeries. Craft a centrepiece from natural rocks and dress them in the lilac-bloomed beauty of the Gibraltar Candytuft.

Sea treasures

If you are aiming for a wedding that is eco-friendly and effortlessly elegant, you’ll find the beaches of Gibraltar can provide ideal ingredients for centrepieces. On the shoreline, you’ll find shards of driftwood in subtle shades and a wide array of seashells of all shapes and sizes. Combine the gifts from the sea that you have reclaimed to make table centrepieces like no other.

Light your centrepieces

Illuminate your beach-themed centrepiece with battery-powered LED fairy lights to keep them twinkly. Wrap them around your displays or fill antique sea lanterns to add a nautical feel.

Advice on wedding centrepieces

Always consider the design and structure of your wedding venue when selecting the size of your arrangements to ensure they remain a feature yet never feel overstated.
