Romantic Wrightsville Beach Wedding Inspiration

Our beaches are a point of pride for most North Carolinians. From the famed Outer Banks, to the pristine shores of remote nooks like Topsail and Bald Head Island, to bustling destinations like Atlantic Beach, each has its own personality and vibe. One of the most special NC beaches – popular for vacations and destination weddings alike – is Wrightsville. Neighbor to the charming town of Wilmington – the “Charleston of NC,” if you will, Wrightsville is a world of its own that faces the Atlantic on one side, and the Intercoastal Waterway on the other. Fine art NC photographer Bronwyn Duffield Photography took advantage of each of these signature features, and styled an incredibly romantic Wrightsville Beach wedding inspirational shoot. Enjoy these images, which were shot on film by Bronwyn.

The setting is the pier of The Oceanic. The vibe is soft and romantic – a full and flowing wedding dress, a handsome gray suit in subtle plaid, and a color palette of antique blush tones, creams and dusty blue in the bouquet and bridesmaid gown. Thanks to the quiet winter, the newlyweds have the sand, waves and warm sunlight all to themselves.  Wrightsville Wedding portrait by Bronwyn Duffield PhotographyWilmington NC bride with veilWilmington NC beach bride Bronwyn DuffieldFiore Fine Flowers wedding bouquetGroom in gray plaid with skinny navy tieBride and Groom on Wrightsville BeachAntique Blue bridesmaid dress on beachDiamond and Sapphire engagement ring with invitation on beachBride under Pier at Wrightsville Beach NCBridesmaid on Wrightsville NC beachInvitation Suite for Beach wedding in navyThe winter golden grasses of the intercoastal waterway add dimension to the scene.
