Celebrant Ceremony on-board a Boat


A celebrant is someone who can provide a tailor-made ceremony which is personal to you without any legal obligations.


The celebrant ceremony is not legally binding, so you will still need to register your marriage at a Registry Office either before or after your Wedding Day.


Because the celebrant ceremony is not legally binding there are no restrictions. They are available for couples of any sexual preference or gender orientation. Any culture, faith or religion. Any venue or place (inside or outside) as the venue does not need to be licensed.


You can choose if you want to include readings, poems and songs (silly, serious, religious or sentimental) Choose to write your own vows, use traditional vows or have no vows at all!


Choose how long you want it to last. If you want it to be simple or elaborate… The decision is yours. Your Celebrant Ceremony will be unique, personal and tailor-made for You.

There are a number of venues along the River Thames which are licensed Wedding Venues.


Getting married at a Thames Riverside Venue, means that you will be legally married by a registrar. After the ceremony, guests usually enjoy a celebratory drink before walking down the pier and onto the boat.


A few of our favourite Riverside Venues are:

Altittude 360

London Eye

Tower of London Towers or Walkways

Dickins Inn

You may be looking for something a little more traditional for your Wedding ceremony.


A registry office wedding ceremony follows a set procedure; the registrar will begin the ceremony with a welcome and short introduction. You will then be asked to repeat your vows (these are official vows, which are a legal requirement and cannot be altered). After you have exchanged your vows both you and your witnesses will sign the register.


You can personalise your ceremony with music and readings but they must not have any religious connotations and they will need to be approved by the Registry Office.
