Unusual & Unique Wedding Venue

It’s probably the biggest day of your life, so you want to really push the boat out. And where could be more AmaZing, romantic and unusual for your ceremony and celebrations than Britain’s very first luxury island?

You and your party can assemble in the Departure Lounge then we’ll ferry everyone out in our flotilla of boats.

Three rooms in the Fort are licenced for civil weddings – you can say “I do” in the Officers Mess, the Victory Bar or the Crow’s Nest.  As far as the celebrations go you are spoilt for choice with three bars and three dining rooms exclusively for you and your party, as well as sun decks, hot tub, sauna, fire pit and games room. You’ll have you own chef to provide food and drink fit for an admiral of the fleet, supported by a full crew to offer superb personal service.

Once you finally run out of steam and need to turn in for the night there are nine wonderful bedroom suites in which to moor up for the night.

  • 8 luxurious bedroom suites (9 including the Crow's Nest)
