Host an unforgettable wedding on board a superyacht

Host an unforgettable wedding on board a superyacht

6th February 2017
A wedding is one of the most special occasions in a person’s life and where better to hold a one-of-a-kind ceremony than on board a superyacht? Specialising in five-star service and looking after all the small details that matter the most, IYC’s charter team, yachts and their crews are ideally qualified for helping to organise a wedding or vow renewal ceremony on board the superyacht of your choice. And of course, once the ceremony is over a yacht charter is the perfect choice for a honeymoon.

Whether hosting an intimate ceremony or a larger gathering there is a yacht to suit every couple and occasion and any kind of event can be created, from a formal high-class affair to a barefoot sunset wedding. From the flowers to world-class food, décor, the service and more, every detail can be taken care of on board the yacht of your choice. Just picture your guests being welcomed with a champagne reception on the private deck of your yacht before a beautiful ceremony is performed and a five-star wedding reception hosted, all in one incomparable setting.

Main options for weddings include a charter for smaller parties, or a docked event – ideal for a wedding and/or reception with a larger guest list. For smaller groups, the yacht can cruise to the location of the couple’s choice, ensuring the perfect backdrop for a ceremony. Formalities and legalities will vary depending on the country and yacht chosen by the couple for the wedding: on some yachts the captain will be able to officiate, on others a couple may choose or need to bring a celebrant on board.

When it comes to more intimate affairs and smaller groups, without the need to host a big reception, the entire IYC charter fleet is on offer, with a range of destinations and yacht styles on offer to suit any kind of wedding. A number of yachts in the IYC are particularly well suited to a wedding ceremony and/or reception, with several able to host larger parties when static. Based in Croatia, 41m Riana, a classic-style sailing yacht, is able to host up to 60 guests when docked. She has a variety of deck options that are the perfect setting for a chic reception thanks to her romantic design that harks back to the golden era of yachting. Once the wedding day is over, Croatia offers a stunning backdrop for a honeymoon with hidden beaches, idyllic coves, romantic little coastal towns and the most beautiful sunsets.

34m Star of the Sea is also able to host up to 60 guests when docked and is a very popular yacht for hosting high-class events, with previous bookings including events around the Monaco Grand Prix, Cannes Film Festival and more. Her crew have a reputation for creating incredible events and ensuring everything runs like clockwork. With a large Master Suite and particularly spacious VIP she is well-suited for a couple looking to get ready and dress for the ceremony on board in equal comfort and style.

For a bigger reception 45m Ipanemas can host up to 100 guests when docked and is popular thanks to her extensive outdoor spaces over three decks and elegant modern interior. With a full-beam master and three VIPs, as well as two twins, she is also well suited to hosting the immediate wedding party for a honeymoon charter once the wedding is over. 45m Secret Life, a classic Feadship can welcome even bigger numbers and is able to host up to 150 guests for a static charter. With vast deck spaces she is perfect for the sun-drenched setting of the Mediterranean and provides a timeless and stylish setting for a wedding ceremony and reception.
