Lilac skies, amber sunsets and sparkling waters set the scene for the most romantic of weddings at sea. Combining your wedding and honeymoon in one perfect holiday, a cruise ship wedding takes the stress out of seating plans and family feuds, placing the focus firmly on you as a couple and on making sure you have the most amazing of days.
With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, we wanted to hear from Bolsover Cruise Club members who had enjoyed their very own wedding at sea. Louise Brake, Susan Beardow and June Parramore all shared their special days on our Facebook page – don’t they all look fantastic!
‘We were married on Azura on April 4th 2012 by Captain Paul Brown. We had a wonderful day with our family and friends, and have loads of happy memories of our happy day. Our wedding at sea was booked through Bolsover Cruise Club, who made the whole process a breeze.’
‘We were by married by the lovely Captain Paul Brown on 20th December 2009 on board Oriana, and kept the wedding a secret for a full year! I rang my parents at tea time and told them the news – they were shocked to say the least but said we did the right thing. The crew made our day special, even though there were just the two of us.’
‘We renewed our marriage vows at sea aboard the Sea Princess on 3rd June 2007; our Ruby Wedding anniversary. The cruise was booked through Bolsover Cruise Club and it was a lovely experience.’
Have you considered a wedding at sea? It’s the perfect combination of wedding and honeymoon, with all the fine food, flowers, champagne and romance you’d expect ashore.
From the flowers and champagne in your cabin, to the wedding planner dedicated to making sure your day is absolutely perfect, and the ship’s Captain who conducts your private and intimate ceremony, a wedding at sea is like no other. Imagine waking up on the morning of your wedding, surrounded by stunning ocean views and having already enjoyed the first days of an incredible holiday together. Floral arrangements will be beautifully crafted by the on board florist and a photographer will capture every moment of your special day, providing you with lasting images to join the perfect memories.
A honeymoon at sea is filled with al fresco dinners beneath the stars, spectacular sunset strolls around the promenade and relaxing spa treatments for two. Combine unadulterated romance and relaxation with the adventure of activity and exploration. Wake to new scenery every morning, exploring new shores together and creating memories that will last a lifetime. Spend your days in a myriad of destinations, from sun-soaked beaches to vibrant cities and historic towns, before spending your evenings celebrating with fine dining and cocktails served in the most intimate restaurants on the ship.
Special anniversaries call for special attention. Whether you choose to escape the world and celebrate just the two of you, or bring along your closest family and friends to witness a beautiful renewal of vows, a cruise will create even more precious memories to add to those you have collected throughout the years. Renewal of vows packages are expertly tailored to you as a couple, celebrating your lasting union with an intimate ceremony conducted by the ship’s Captain. Alternatively, simply enjoy some quality time together, enjoying new experiences and old traditions combined.
