Unique and so much fun!

Well where do I begin! What a whirlwind few months it’s been! From our initial enquiry in July, up until our wedding day in September, the team at The Deck 747 have been amazing. We had been so undecided about the type of wedding we wanted but when this venue came to our attention it just felt like it was meant to be. The team were not fazed by having to plan the whole day in just 9 weeks. We had so much confidence in them and they were so proactive and supportive throughout. There was genuine excitement and passion to ensure we had the best day! And we certainly did have the best day, a truly unforgettable experience for ourselves and our guests. Our guests loved the simulator and flew to many destinations around the world! The experience was so much fun and so unique…signing the marriage register in the cockpit and then photographs on the air traffic control tower! Thank you to everyone who made our day so special!
