A most excited bride and a unique wedding venue

All I could hear was giggling coming from behind the door and shouts of “We’re not ready!” as I arrived. I had to wait in the kitchen where I could see the venue. Are you looking for a unique wedding venue in the South West? Latifé & Andrew chose a beautiful one of a kind wedding venue. It “floats” within walking distance of their home.

It’s traditional that the groom spends the night alone. This dates back to the days of arranged marriages when the parents didn’t want either party fleeing the wedding after clapping eyes on the other. And so it became unlucky to see your partner the night before the wedding. Of course it’s not unlucky but we all love tradition.

Once the crowds had gone Latifé could arrive. All the guests were hurried from the Weather Deck down to the Promenade Deck for the ceremony. If you are looking for a unique, characterful wedding venue then the SS Great Britain is perfect. It’s exclusive and beautiful.

In the First Class Dining Saloon Eric tried to keep it together for his best man’s speech but emotions overcame him and had to be comforted by Latifé’s hugs.

It was a glorious day, perfect weather, joy and laughter. They danced the night away as we headed home.
