Imagine walking up the gangway of a 1938 vintage motor yacht, decorated in beautiful, fresh flowers and being greeted with a glass of chilled Champagne.
Dorset Queen is the ideal setting for post-nuptial afternoon cruises, allowing your wedding party of up to 95 guests see the beauty of Poole Harbour.
Or, maybe you’re getting married on Brownsea Island or Shell Bay Restaurant and want to arrive in style.
We are also available as an evening reception venue with onboard entertainment and catering.
Or for the most boutique option; under English law you cannot get married on a moving structure, but we have hosted numerous faux ceremonies on board, anchored in Studland Bay, prior to the Bride & Groom signing the official paperwork in the registry office back on dry land, after the cruise.
Poole Harbour has an interior coastline of 103 miles and many amazing photo oportunities, including Brownsea Castle, five islands and Millionaires Row at Sandbanks.
On a fine day we can also cruise out to the World Heritage Site – Jurassic Coast & Old Harrys Rock.
