5 Reasons to Have a Beachside Wedding

So you’ve decided to take the leap of faith and get married. Congratulations! Your next few challenges will no doubt include zeroing in on a guest list, figuring out a theme, and most importantly, scouting the perfect location.

Since we love the East Coast shore so much, here are 5 of the many reasons we think your dream wedding should come true on the golden beaches of Mamallapuram!


Your wedding photographer will be thrilled to bits at the prospect of shooting in natural light. With the skies splashing a dramatic array of hues onto the glistening sea, and the ocean wind in your hair, your wedding album is bound to leave your mates feeling a tinge of jealousy!


A beachside wedding means you can go all out with your themes. Go bohemian, pick wild flowers, release balloons, build sand castles, go barefoot. The beach is literally, your oyster for creativity!


No wedding is complete without customary dancing. From toddlers to the sweet old grandparents, everybody shakes a leg. So whether your wedding hosts the Punjabi bhangra, the Spanish tango or a happy concoction of Macarena and nameless moves, there’s nothing better than dancing merry under the twinkling stars.


Every wedding has people meeting each other for the first time. There’s something about being outdoors by the beach though; it makes people happy and want to socialise! Set up outdoor activities, photo booths, or mix-your-own-drink stands, so your guests get to mingle and enjoy each other’s company. Who knows, your wedding just might end up being where two other people meet and fall in love!


Your wedding is your one shot at making big romantic gestures, or simply cherishing a sacred memory that will stay with you for the rest of your life. The pristine sand, the soothing waves, the ancient temple in the background, the salty wind in your hair – tough to beat the romance here! Plus, every time you go to a beach anywhere in the world, you will be reminded of your beautiful wedding.

At the Radisson Blu Resort Temple Bay Mamallapuram, we live to create your dream wedding. Choose from a range of venues, mix it up with indoor and outdoor activities, serve a menu your guests will dream of years later, and let us be a part of your planning process.
