Kat & Billy: A beautiful wedding by the sea: Croyde, Devon

We were delighted that Kat & Billy chose our traditional canvas pole tent for their wedding day, and what a better location than nestled in the Devonshire countryside, overlooking  beautiful sandy beach and spectacular coastal scenery of Croyde Bay – a truly magical spot!

THE VISION | Beachy and rustic with lots of laughter, music and dancing.

Billy and I knew we wanted to be married in our favourite place; so that pinned our search down to Croyde. We had been to St. George’s Church, Georgeham (the next village along) a number of times over the years, on our many surfing weekends, and we knew that was the church where we wanted to be married.

We were able to give Kat & Billy a helping hand throughout their wedding planning experience, with partial planning and recommendations for suppliers through our fabulous contacts…. helping to make every element of their big day just how they envisioned.

“Tracy at Blue Fizz events recommended some amazing companies, which made the planning some 4 hours away (on the north side of Oxford) relatively easy!”

If you would like a helping hand within the planning, styling or co-ordaintion of your big day, we can offer a bespoke, personable and creative service within our full or partial wedding planning service. 

Kat & Billy’s big day started with morning preparations at the Red Lion Hotel, within the lovely, quaint village of Clovelly ‘where where the steep, cobbled street tumbles down past gleaming white cottages to the tiny, deep-blue harbour’

The beautiful yet relaxed ceremony was held at St. Georges Church in Georgham – of course there was an abundance of confetti & smiles from ear to ear as the happy couple left the church hand-in-hand, as Mr & Mrs Harris!

After tying the knot this gorgeous couple were then en route to their magical coastal location… but not before making a quick stop at Putsborough beach for a few breathtaking pictures…




It was then off to join their family and friends for an amazing evening of feasting & partying ahead, underneath their beautiful traditional canvas pole tent marquee which over-looks the beautiful coastline of Croyde.



Canvas marquees are quintessentially English, and are perfect for weddings by the sea, made from natural cream, waxed canvas with feature wooden poles and hemp guy ropes, they’re stylish inside and out and suited to any weather.

Hilarious and heart-warming speeches were then followed by some truly fantastic limbo dancing – the photographers said they “absolutely loved capturing this element… it was so much fun!”


Make TIME. The day literally whizzes past and pretty much runs away from you. But try to make time for the things that are important to you. Think about what it is that you don’t ever want to wish you had made time for. I wish I had spoken to more people while they were sitting down for our meal. I wish I had pictures in the morning with my brother and my mum. And I wish Billy and I had spent longer at Puttsborough. I wish I had sat down and had a TIME OUT with him.
