Riverside wedding venues along the Thames are immensely popular. But when you are looking for something different as well as being near water, a stylish and novel way to celebrate your marriage is to hire a wedding boat.

It’s elegant, romantic, fun and will suit all age groups of guests. The beautiful backdrop of the river will be captured on camera, and on yours and your guests minds for years to come.

There are two ways in which you can hire a wedding boat along the River Thames with Turk Launches:

“Just to say a huge thanks for all your assistance on our wedding day. You were absolutely outstanding and we were delighted with your service on the day and positive we could not have made a better choice. All of our guests commented on how fantastic your staff and the venue were and we are thrilled about that and in complete agreement. We hold many special memories of our day and you are a huge part of that.
