Looking for a unique wedding venue? The new and impressive Sunborn London is a luxury yacht, permanently moored on the Thames in Royal Victoria Docks. Situated in a stunning location, the yacht overlooks Canary Wharf, the O2 Arena and Emirates Cable Cars. Licensed for legal wedding ceremonies, Sunborn London was purpose built as a floating hotel – providing all you could want for a unique wedding venue.
Several of the rooms are licensed for wedding ceremonies, including the ships wheelhouse. There is an excellent restaurant for a grand wedding breakfast (up to 120 guests) and a wide choice of luxurious rooms and suites for guests to stay overnight.
There is a choice of room grades, starting at £160 for a dock view, with a small supplement for executive rooms providing balconies overlooking the river. All the rooms feature a Lavazza Coffee machine and Sony tablet! If you really want to push the boat out, then there are two suites at the bow of the yacht, complete with a separate sitting room, huge private deck, double bedroom and an impressive bathroom with a corner jacuzzi and a private sauna with windows looking out over the Thames. And forget double bathroom wash basins; in the Sunborn’s suites they have double showers! Prices range up to £760 for a suite. If you need further pampering, the boat also boasts an Elemis Spa.
In addition to weddings, the yacht is proving very popular for proposals and romantic breaks, with Friday and Saturday nights particularly popular, so book well in advance. The restaurant offers a varied menu, but if you arrive after it closes, we were particularly impressed with the room service. Although the menu was limited, our pizza was prepared and baked to order using fresh ingredients, and utterly delicious.
