Boasting beautifully quaint harbour views, The Commodore’s House has a rich and fascinating history. Having stood proudly over the water of Cowes since the 19thcentury, it is one of the most memorable and unique wedding venues that the Isle of Wight has to offer.

When booking with Commodore’s House, you will have exclusive use of their beautifully rustic ground floor Boathouse. With the ability to host up to 100 guests seated, you can celebrate saying ‘I do’ to the person you love while you watch the hustle and bustle of Cowes Harbour bob along. The room itself is a nautical vision with exposed, original brickwork, large windows looking over the water, and a private Quay where you can even erect a marquee. Perfect for a grand affair, the team at The Commodore’s House can recommend you one of the finest caterers that the Isle of Wight can offer, meaning that you and your guests can celebrate the beginning of your next chapter with a sumptuous menu of food and drink.

For more intimate, summer affairs, you could hire the Lookout. With breath-taking views out to sea, and with the ability to host only 60 guests, it would make for the perfect location for your smaller celebration.

My beautiful wedding

I celebrated my wedding with a reception at commodore house- it was a perfect unique venue and i had so many compliments on how i managed to find such a wonderful venue! I had the ability to make the wedding exactly how i wanted it, every decoration- the food, the DJ and the drinks. Placed in the heart of cowes with its own harbour- made for stunning wedding pictures and a really romantic setting.
