Cottesloe Beach and the Arch Monument
Cottesloe Beach is a popular photography stop for many weddings held in the Fremantle and nearby coastal area. Particularly for couples using Cottesloe Civic Centre for their ceremony or Indiana Tea House, the Cottesloe Surf Club or the Seaview Golf Club for their reception venue.
Cottesloe Beach is often a little more sheltered from the Fremantle doctor than other nearby beaches and the Indiana Tea House building and arches provide a variety of backgrounds for photographers.
Weddings at Cottesloe Beach
Wedding ceremonies are not permitted on the lawns or beach near the Indiana Tea House building. A popular sea view ceremony location in Cottesloe is the Arch Monument which overlooks the Cottesloe Groyne.
Brides using the Arch Monument for their wedding ceremony usually drop-off at the car park directly behind the monument, however some brides prefer to drop-off nearer the Cottesloe Surf Club and walk over the headland to make their entrance to the ceremony.
Limousine access to Cottesloe Beach and the Arch Monument
Access along the beachfront for dropping off and collecting wedding groups is fine for any wedding cars, Chrysler limousines or Hummer limos.
The critical concern along Cottesloe Beach is parking. If you are planning to use the Cottesloe Arch Monument for your wedding ceremony it is advisable to have a friend or guest who is preparing the venue for you to reserve a parking bay(s) near the arch for your wedding cars. Larger stretch limousines may not be able to park at the location on busy days so the chauffeur will need to park further along the beach or on a street away from the beachfront on very busy days. Your driver will give someone in the wedding party a contact number so you can call a few minutes before you are ready to be collected again.
Cottesloe has some of the most vigilant parking inspectors in Perth. It is wise to inform your guests to park legally and pay and parking fees. We frequently hear that guests complaining about $150 plus parking fines have dominated the wedding reception conversations following wedding ceremonies at the various venues in Cottesloe.
