Here is a lovely design created for a black and white wedding on the beach.
I have two weddings this year with this colour scheme,
one at Tikitano Beach Club and one at Puente Romano in Marbella.
Both weddings want a Black and White theme, one with silver and zebra prints
and the other with golds.
To keep away from a Christmassy look I have suggested the golds and silver be kept to a minimum with perhaps gold or silver shells as a feature,
using them to fill vases and decorate napkins.
Orchids always work well with these schemes but are expensive here in Spain therefore unless budgets allow it is a luxury but used sparingly and to maximum effect can create dramatic displays.

Black and white on the beach is so striking and not often the first color combo brides think of when planning a seaside wedding.
Thanks for featuring it. It looks beautiful!

It is such a striking combination anywhere but works well with the beach twigs and orchids
