A Deal Clincher

Sep 01, 2019

For many couples who dream of exchanging their vows at a destination away from their home city, the aspiration really is to have an experience that is memorable, not only for themselves as a couple but also for their families and friends. And for those who opt for a wedding by the sea, a panoramic view will certainly be a deal clincher when it comes to selecting the venue for their celebrations.

Whilst the norm is for the wedding ceremony to take place on the beach or on a lawn facing the sea, other options abound too when one looks hard enough. The opportunity of taking their marital vows on an outdoor terrace with an elevated view of the vast sea and beyond is certainly one unique option to consider.

Other complementary features of such a property :

  • The ceremony can be followed by an alfresco reception should the terrace be able to accommodate the size of the guest list based on a dinner seating.
  • Alternatively, head into the airconditioned comforts of a ballroom for a more formal and grand wedding banquet.
  • A location within the city centre allows the couple and their guests to easily access other sights, do some shopping and plan leisure activities as part of the wedding weekend.
