The MV Henley


Your very own Fairytale Wedding onboard our beautiful Victorian vessel.

The M.V Henley has recently become a Licenced Wedding Venue to perform Weddings and Civil Partnerships on The River Thames.

We offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to tie the knot in a very unique way, right infront of your favourite River Thames Landmarks. We can even arrange for the release of a beautiful pair of love birds at the end of your Ceremony, to add to the perfection of your very special day.

Once the ceremony has taken place, take full advantage of the beautiful River Thames setting, while our very own in-house Chef Danny, takes care of your bespoke Wedding Breakfast. A fully stocked bar is also available onboard.

Chef Danny will work closely with you to create your bespoke menu once your date is confirmed. We can then pair this with a choice of wines and of course, a Champagne Toast to the happy couple.

Entertainment will be provided by our Resident DJ or Band who will play for you and your guests to dance the night away.

We understand organising your special day can be incredibly stressful, however our team at River Boat Charters can take the stress and worry away and organise everything from start to finish for you.

We can also liaise with your Registrar who we will work closely with to assist you every step of the way.

We can also help arrange suppliers to include photographer, flowers, entertainment, doves, the dressing of the vessel, overnight hotel and transportation. Literally everything from start to finish.

We have a variety of different options and packages to suit all budgets from a 2-hour cruise with Ceremony and Reception Drinks to a full days charter including Ceremony, Wedding Breakfast, Drinks, Entertainment and Evening Buffet.

The Ceremony can take place on either the front covered or the top sun deck beneath a beautiful archway of fresh flowers.

So, let our dedicated Wedding Team take the stress and worry away and help you plan your very perfect day.
