Why get married at sea?

The complete package – Pack your passports and get ready to say “I do” whilst sailing around a variety of stunning destinations. Not only are cruises a unique wedding venue, but they allow couples to transform their big day into a mini-holiday or honeymoon for all their guests. Cruises are well equipped to entertainment, with swimming pools, sports activities, restaurants, bars and extensive entertainment facilities onboard. P & O Cruises have a large fleet of ships which can accommodate weddings of all sizes.

The sea view – Not many couples are lucky enough to exchange their vows with a sea view. Gazing out over the limitless ocean is the perfect romantic backdrop for that important “I do” moment. Some cruise ships allow you to get married on the outside deck, which can be decorated with flowers and confetti for a picture perfect setting.

Nautical theme – There is no better place for a nautical wedding theme than on the sea itself. From the invitations and favours to the flowers and wedding cake – a simple white and blue theme will create a simple, classy and stunning wedding theme.
