Sea Breeze - Marquee by the Sea

Your dream wedding could be by the ocean’s edge. Embracing the love of the ocean, the sea breeze and waves rolling in from the Atlantic, this stunning setting is always a crowd pleaser. Set on the North Devon coast, Down End is a majestic spot overlooking Croyde Bay, with the glittering ocean reaching far into the distance.

A scheme of natural greens complement this dramatic view with a few pops of colour from some hand-made additions. A ceremony area can be flanked with the silvery – green foliage of evergreen Olive trees and upright Birch trees. The pale silver stemmed delicate Birch trees work well with the leaves of the Olive tree and raw umber colour of the marquee.

Olive and Birch Trees

This Sea Breeze themed wedding in Devon embodies a simple and elegant scheme that can complement a stunning venue and not compete with it, and will soften the edges of a marquee and add symmetry and structure. Pots can be wrapped in hessian and under-planting can be altered to follow a colour theme. Trailing Ivy adds an elegant touch to under–planting and scented plants including lavender can add an extra dimension to a planting scheme, producing a gorgeous summery aroma.
