How Weddings Work!
Weddings On board
Once guests are all onboard we head out to the middle of the passage, turn the motors off and float gently while the ceremony is conducted and the signing of the Registry. We then head back to shore to drop the celebrant off and then head up the Passage for the celebrations. Food is served during the cruise and bar is open throughout once we head off. Cake, if supplied, is brought out for cutting and speeches at a pre-arranged time however this is flexible depending on how the cruise is running.
Wedding on Sandbanks
These need to be timed to suit the tide on the day so require flexibility on the part of the bride and groom with a 4 hour booking being the recommended time required. Once all are on board we head up the passage to a pre-arranged sandbank. All disembark onto this sandbank where we put our small wedding table and chairs out. Ceremony and signing is conducted with guests around the wedding party during this time. Photos can be taken here also however we do need to factor in getting the celebrant back to shore and then once all guests are back on board we head back up the Passage to continue the celebrations and the cruise runs as per the above ceremony on board.
Contact us with some ideas such as the length of cruise, type of catering, number of passengers and some proposed dates – we would love to put something together for you for your special day.
