Poole wedding cruises

Imagine walking up the gangway of a 1938 vintage motor yacht decorated in beautiful flowers, whilst you are greeted with a glass of chilled Champagne.

Dorset Queen provides the perfect setting for your big day, whether it’s as transport to and from your wedding venue, as the host of your evening reception or even as the site of your ceremony.

Our spacious vessel can accommodate up to 80 guests comfortably, allowing your wedding party to witness the beauty of Poole Harbour in all its glory.

Wedding boat transport

Perhaps you’re getting married on Brownsea Island or at Shell Bay Restaurant and want to arrive in style. If it’s in the Poole area and accessible by sea, Dorset Cruises can get you and your guests where you need to go.

We can provide transport to and from the following wedding venues:

  • Brownsea Island, Poole Harbour
  • The Priory, Wareham

  • Hotel du Vin, Poole
  • Royal Motor Yacht Club, Sandbanks

Wedding boat ceremonies

Under English law, you cannot get married on a moving structure. However, we have hosted numerous faux wedding ceremonies on board whilst anchored in stunning locations such as Studland Bay, prior to the bride and groom signing the official paperwork in the registry office back on land.

Wedding boat cruises & receptions

To create a truly unique experience for your wedding entourage, why not take your guests on a post-nuptial afternoon cruise around Poole’s breathtaking coastline?

Poole Harbour has an interior coastline of 103 miles that is just brimming with amazing photo opportunities, including Brownsea Castle, five islands and Millionaires’ Row at Sandbanks. On a fine day, we can also cruise out to local World Heritage Site, the Jurassic Coast, and Old Harry Rocks.

We also host evening receptions and have excellent amenities on board to ensure you have everything you need to make the end of your big day the very best it can be.
