Melbourne Beach (Brighton)

Brighton, Melbourne

Melbourne’s coastline is world famous, and a perfect setting for a low-key, relaxed wedding. With a gorgeous place for photos, and a plethora of places to celebrate afterwards, you won’t be disappointed with this location.

Melbourne’s striking coastline is famously popular with photographers, so it is the perfect place to get married in Melbourne.  Brighton Beach offers breathtaking panoramic views of Port Phillip Bay and the Melbourne skyline in the distance. The contrast between the sandy beach, blue waters, and the cityscape creates a visually stunning setting. Start your married life together with the relaxed feeling of your feet in the sand and the sea breeze in your hair, before taking a stroll along the foreshore and celebrating at one of the restaurants or bars nearby.

Location Highlights:  Brighton Beach boasts a long stretch of golden sand that runs alongside the turquoise waters of Port Phillip Bay. The coastline here has something for everyone. One of the most iconic features of Brighton Beach is its colorful beach huts or beach boxes. These charming wooden structures line the foreshore and have become an emblem of Brighton. Each box is uniquely painted in vibrant hues, often displaying creative designs and personal touches. These beach boxes add a touch of charm and whimsy to the beachscape and serve as popular photo opportunities.

Local features: Melbourne is jam-packed with the country’s best restaurants, cafés and bars, so you certainly will be able to celebrate your wedding day however you please. The ceremony location is conveniently located for a variety of restaurants and bars, and public transport into the CBD. Whether you’re in the mood for a casual beachside snack or a fine dining experience, there are plenty of options to choose from in Brighton.

Important things to note: While there’s no guarantees with the weather, we find mornings are magical on the beach, and if you can catch the sunset the sky is pretty amazing, so consider an early morning or later afternoon appointment for your ceremony.
