Isle of Wight Wedding VenueThe most romantic venue for a Wedding Reception on the Isle of Wight

The Princess Caroline has got to be one of the most romantic venues on the Isle of Wight for a wedding reception. It’s totally unique and will make your special day truly memorable, for both you and your wedding guests.

Hosting your wedding reception on the Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight in Hampshire is a beautiful island just off the coast of Southern England. For a such a small place, it ‘s famous for a very wide variety of things, including the beautiful landscape, its sandy beaches and coastline.

The island’s been a hugely popular holiday resort since Victorian times, when it was well favoured by Queen Victoria, who built and lived in Osborne House, which is located in East Cowes.

There’s something romantic about the Isle of Wight’s warm climate and beautiful scenery that make it perfect for intimate alfresco dining or a romantic wedding. The Princess Caroline can cruise around the island taking in its dramatic coastline whilst you and your guests dine and dance the night away.

The Isle of Wight is very accessible by passenger ferry or fast catamarans from Southamton, Portsmouth, or Lymington.

From small intimate ceremonies to larger and grander celebrations, the Princess Caroline has something to suit everybody, and all budgets, so book your wedding reception with us, and sail happily into the sunset and married life.

Just imagine..
