There have been several arguments over who has the right to the sands for many decades. But the bottom line is basically all ocean beaches in Australia are open to the public. That said, if you’re planning on having a smaller beach wedding with about fifty or fewer guests, you may be able to find yourself a nice little private property on a secluded beach with owners who are comfortable in hosting events in their private space. But we warn you beforehand: if the setup mentioned is what you’re after, you will need to start your search early. Even the most lenient hosts are often wary of events, so it can be sometimes really difficult in finding someone who both; a secluded beach at their disposal and won’t be minding you for letting you use their property as a home base. That doesn’t mean it can’t be done, though. You need to just give yourself lots of time to make that happen and also prepare yourself for lots of rejections.

Accessibility for Your Beach Wedding
Sure, it might sound lovely to get married with your toes dipped in the sand. But can your old Grandma and other elderly in your family, who uses a wheelchair or a crutch, make it to the ceremony to see you put said toes in the sand? Will all your guests be standing? Or are there options for those who will need to sit? Like all other outdoor ceremony space, the beach will add a layer of difficulty when it comes to accessibility. So consider your guest list and figure out if any additional accommodations will need to be made so that no one misses out.

Waves are loud, you know that right? And beaches don’t generally come standard equipped with power outlets. So will your guests be able to hear you or do you need some volume? Is your wedding party small enough that you won’t need any amplification? Or are you going to have to figure a portable power situation? You will need to figure all these things out in advance, or you may end up having to shout to be heard in the (proverbial) rafters.
