Black Rock beach weddings are becoming more and more popular due to the private location and close proximity to Melbourne.
Black Rock is located only 18 kilometres south east of Melbourne, along Port Phillip Bay. Lying between Sandringham and Beaumaris, Black Rock is only a very small suburb and can be easily missed. Black Rock beach is in Half Moon Bay which is home to the Black Rock Yacht Club. Its a relatively private beach as it is hidden by cliffs from the road and many visitors would not know it existed. There is a large ramp from the car park which leads straight on to the beach.
Although it can get quite windy, we had a relatively calm day and provided a bamboo wedding canopy and a few chairs for our small beach wedding, with our couple being from overseas. We also provided an area for guests to take their shoes off and leave in a basket prior to walking on the sand.
The only negative aspect is the large amount of algae on the beach, which we managed to remove from the ceremony area, but there are ample photo opportunities at Black Rock beach and in the surrounding suburbs.
In order to have your wedding at Black Rock beach, you must obtain a permit from the Bayside City Council. The cost of the permit is between $450 and $500 and is for a 2 hour time period. There is ample parking for your guests as the beach is located right near the Black Rock Yacht Club and long pier.
