Weddings - What if I want to change venue or day?

Considerations for a ceremony on the beach:

We have to arrange for beach permits for some beach ceremonies. This is generally included in the price of the service as, in most cases, we organise and have to pay for these in advance. This means that we need to specify the location of ceremony on the beach, the date of the ceremony, size of area to be used and the length of time we will spend on the beach from setting up to removal of equipment. It may be difficult to get arrangements changed at a venue once booked and paid for in advance. To organise a new booking or change from the pre-arranged date, time, venue could also be difficult at short notice and, there would also be a further cost incurred. However the circumstances may require some necessary changes to be made.

The summer months are less windy but it can be very hot and humid, occasionally there may be some rain. However, when rain is forecast, there may be heavy rain on some parts of the island and not others. Some larger ceremonies will have guests who arrive and depart the island at different times, so inclement weather may mean the ceremony will still go ahead, but with some changes needing to be made at short notice. Unfortunately, we can't say what the alternatives are due to the situation on those occasions being unknown.

Inclement weather affecting Simplicity Weddings may mean we need to consider other arrangements, but only if there is some flexibility! However those who were offering additional services for the day of the ceremony would need to be contacted to see if their arrangements can be changed too.

Our ceremonies are held during daylight hours. We do not hold ceremonies on the beach at night nor in isolated areas. Not having nearby access to refreshment and bathroom facilities can cause some distress, if someone is dehydrated or not well, so we usually have facilities available within walking distance of the ceremony service. Please note, this is not just for the wedding couple or their guests, but for members of our team, who may not be permitted to access facilities in your hotel. At least shelter from inclement can be provided where ceremonies are held near or at venues.

If you require a different photographer, please ask for a quote.

There are other factors that we have taken into consideration that are not listed here, that will be referred to on this website and within Weddings-FAQ:
