Hi, we are in Sydney, we are planning a beach wedding in Dec/2010. However we worried there might be too much people on beach during summer, especially when taking photos.

We currently thinking about Rotunda, at Balmoral Beach Mosman, or Narrabeen Beach, Mona Vale.

So our questions are:
1. Is beach wedding in summer a not so good idea because lots of people on beach?
2. if we go to Narrabeen beach, which is less popular, would it be better?

I got married on Freshwater beach in January - we went the day before our wedding at exactly the same time and it was empty. The day of our wedding it was jam packed. So you really can not tell what is will be like - we were also married on a tuesday.

However our Photographer managed to get some great shots that looks like it is only us on there!

IMO for a beach wedding, regardless of how many people are on the beach, 99.9% of people are respectful enough to see there is a wedding going on and keeping their distance.

It is also easy enough to get photos without anyone else it it, unless of course you want an entire beach shot with just the two of you in it... THAT might be a bit difficult!

We got married on Balmoral Beach on the island in late November. We had the wedding on a Friday afternoon at 3.30 pm - hardly a soul in sight!

I chose a Friday wedding almost entirely for that reason. It also meant it was FAR easier to pick and choose other wedding suppliers as most people want Saturday.

I also chose the island over the Rotunda as it is WAY more private, you don't get random passersby .... everyone from the road and all over the place can see you in the rotunda and will come over to have a look - I know I do that when I see a wedding there!
I didn't want that. We were tucked away in the bushes on the island (on the right half way down) . That meant we got to walk over the bridge as our 'aisle' and everyone looked out over the water instead of at cars and passersby.

We then hired a bus and took off to Atholl Hall for the reception.

It was perfect!
