Perfect day

The staff were brilliant before, during and after the wedding. They were very helpful and accommodating when we had to postpone last year- they provide so much that they are great value for money. The day was perfect and just what we wanted!

Events Team - Laura

We were very much struck with the professionalism of the Events team, in particular Laura who managed the day for us. She was extremely responsive, helpful, supportive and ensured that we had the most wonderful wedding day, including ensuring the Captain’s Cabin was warm enough for us. She struck the right balance of support on the day to reassure us our day would run smoothly. A perfect wedding day for us.
