For any bride to be, finding a special wedding reception venue must be top of the list. It’s finding a place that will mean everything to you as a couple – and be memorable for your friends and family.

When looking for wedding venues in SW London or Surrey, the romance of the river Thames makes for a stunning choice.

And for a touch of the unusual or different, you could hire a wedding boat.
Pretty, quintessential and stylish, Turk’s wedding boats cruise along one of the most picturesque stretches of river between Richmond, Kingston and Hampton Court Palace.

The historic and scenic setting provides a spectacular backdrop for photos. For all age groups from toddlers to teenagers to the retired, it’s a fun and relaxed way to celebrate.

“All of our guests have mentioned the boat trip and how much they enjoyed it. Thank you once again for making our wedding day so special” Adrian and Cathy
