LOVE LETTERS FROM REAL WEDDINGS IN ST. ANDREWS BY-THE-SEA AND THE CHARLOTTE COASTAL REGION.

Shawna and Zach

I was fortunate to have grown up in beautiful St. Andrews by the sea, NB. I never doubted where I would someday get married. The scenery, the charm, and people of St. Andrews make it a truly special place. Just taking a stroll through the town makes for breathtaking backgrounds for pictures.  All the wedding services available in the town make it so easy to plan and host a wedding. there are venues, musicians, salons, wedding planners, photographers, a celebrant, churches,  many places for guest to have accommodations, just to name a few. In our experience we had a wonderful day, I would change nothing. For brides and grooms considering my town for your wedding destination, I say DO IT!!! You will have no regrets,  the experience St. Andrews will deliver is sure to impress you and your guests.

St. Andrews has always been a special place in our relationship since our first dinner at the wonderful Rossmount Inn. With families in New Brunswick and Ontario, we had lots of options about where to host our wedding. St. Andrews, we decided, was the best location since it would be memorable destination for both our families. We went on a whale tour and got married in an apple orchard in the beautiful Kingsbrae Gardens. We loved our wedding and the many fantastic people from St. Andrews who helped make it special.

There’s a good reason why everyone from royalty and nobility to family vacationers have been flocking to St Andrews for generations: the town is like a fairy tale come true.

We couldn’t have chosen a more magical spot for our wedding. I was also pleasantly surprised by the quality of the resources available in St Andrews to pull off the wedding of our dreams. There wasn’t anything that we wanted that couldn’t be sourced locally. And my wedding planner made everything so easy!

Our family and friends were simply blown away by the town. Not only does it ooze charm, history and grace but there such a variety of ways to spend your days and nights. In fact some of our guests extended their stay because they just didn’t want to leave. Can’t say I blame them!
