Getting Married on the Isle of Wight
If you’re thinking about getting married on the Isle of Wight, then think no more, as this delightful island off the south coast of the English mainland is the perfect place to enjoy the most important day of your life. The idyllic setting of the Isle of Wight means your wedding day will be remembered forever. There are many beautiful churches dotted around the Island for the wedding ceremony, or alternatively, you may prefer the Isle of Wight Register Office in the county town of Newport if you’re looking for a more informal service.
Getting married on the Isle of Wight means there are lots of things to get sorted out before the big day arrives. If you do not live on the Island, there is the added job of booking the ferry crossing as well as the usual pre-wedding tasks such as finding a good cake supplier, hairdresser, caterer, florist, photographer etc. Many hotels or B&Bs will be able to provide discounted rates on one of the car or foot passenger ferries, and several can offer honeymoon suites which include those special touches such as a Jacuzzi bath and complimentary champagne and chocolates.
As well as offering reduced rates for the ferry crossing, many accommodation providers on the Island can provide wedding packages, whereby the whole of the hotel can be booked for the wedding party for the entire day. This means the reception and evening function can be catered for, as well as providing overnight accommodation for the wedding guests. Some are even licensed to carry out civil ceremonies. Another option is to use a wedding planner who can reduce the burden of organising and arranging everything, helping to make your ‘Wight Wedding’ a stress-free day.
