If you’ve ever fancied hosting a fabulous party on a superyacht, why not turn your wedding into something all your guests will remember?
A wedding on a yacht can be a sublime way of celebrating that all-important day. The right yacht can easily accommodate luxury catering facilities, bars, dining areas and cloakrooms for up to 200 guests. Including seated dinner, different dance floors, pools and a jacuzzi.
You can exchange your vows on the sea in front of all your guests. Party while heading along the coast to a private beach of your choosing, accessible only by boat. Arrange a slide into the sea to get the guests swimming and having fun. Celebrate all night long and then visit some of the best beach bars along the coast for breakfast in the morning.
You can host the ceremony, wedding reception, dinner and party on board with five-star cuisine and tailored menus. Pick your ideal location, a pristine beach, cove or island for the ceremony and wedding photographs. Many will accommodate you and your guests on board before and after the special day, or you can pick up and drop off your friends at individual boutique hotels on the journey.
Most yacht charter companies will arrange hair, makeup, flowers, fireworks, band or DJ and decor, including post-wedding activities to keep the excitement flowing. Take a jet ski tour with your beloved the next day to bump up the romance.
Check that fuel is included and any extra costs such as port fees, taxes, and crew tips.
Prices for a yacht vary enormously, you can find boats that take 50 guests for as little as £7000 on the French Riviera, whilst others might set you back as much as £600,000 for the week.
Popular destinations include Antibes, Cannes, Cap Ferrat, Monaco, Saint Tropez, Menton, Greece and Cyprus. Further afield we would suggest St Barths, Miami, Saint Lucia, Dominican Republic, Virgin Islands or for the island paradise of your dreams, the Maldives.
Once the wedding is done and dusted, you can abandon relatives and friends on a desert island and sail off into the sunset to start your honeymoon.
Don’t forget the photographer and videographer, you will have some cracking memories to share.
