When it comes to weddings, there’s nothing quite as romantic as getting married on the water. With a flawless backdrop of uninterrupted horizon on one side and the coastline on the other, you get to curate your wedding day scenery. A yacht charter is the perfect way to add a touch of elegance, luxury and style to your nautical nuptials, whisking you and your wedding party out into the open ocean to celebrate saying ‘I do’.
To help you plan the most memorable experience possible, Ahoy Club’s team have curated some of our finest vessels made for magical weddings on the water. Whether you’re looking for something small and intimate for your nearest and dearest or you want to delight in all the luxuries, here are five yachts to get started with.
Can I Get Married on a Yacht?
The first step to tying the knot on a charter yacht is knowing what you want from the day. The size and style of the yacht will largely depend on how many guests you intend on inviting. The wedding theme and time at sea will also help you choose an appropriate yacht.
- Will you marry on board, or will the ceremony be held on land?
- Is the charter for the ceremony and reception?
- Are you looking for a yacht charter to host the reception only?
- What time of year are you planning your yacht wedding?
- How many guests do you expect to join you?
- What happens if a guest needs to leave early?
- Will you have a sit-down wedding meal?
Knowing the answer to these questions will help our team curate the perfect yacht, location and schedule for your wedding day to ensure you soak up every moment of the important day.
