A Special Celebrant Wedding Celebration on the Thames
It was a magical moment when my husband and I exchanged our personal wedding vows, on a beautiful boat, surrounded by our family and friends with the stunning scenery of the Thames passing by.
A celebrant wedding ceremony on a boat has a relaxed exclusivity you can’t find elsewhere.
It was private, it was intimate, it was romantic – and it was more fun than we could have ever imagined.
We wanted to share our story as we feel we uncovered a unique and special gem that other couples planning their wedding celebration would love to hear about.

If you are taking part in – or cheering friends on at – the Lidl Kingston Breakfast Run on Sunday 26 March, you may want to add a boat trip as part of your day.

Boat trips from Kingston to Hampton Court start at 10.30am. Boats from Hampton Court to Kingston start at 11.15am. Cheer your friends and family on from the river.
If you are taking part in the race – maybe a relaxing boat trip is just what you need after if you need to get back to Hampton Court or Richmond – bar on board each boat!
