Now, for those finishing touches...

Cake, flowers, photography, a special gift for the special couple... we can work with you to make those finishing touches a part of your treasured memories.

Cakes

One of the most symbolic moments of your day is when you cut the cake. Our skilled pastry chef can create your perfect cake, whether it’s an elegantly simple one-tier cake, or a more elaborate three-tier wedding cake in vanilla sponge, chocolate sponge, or traditional fruit. It will be delicately and beautifully decorated with traditional white icing and topped with sugar flowers. Cake boxes are also available* if you're saving the top tier for a second celebration when you return home (or if you just want to enjoy more later!)

Flowers

Do you see yourself with a pretty posy or exotic buttonhole? Our on-board florists can provide options for you to pick from*. Romantic roses, elegant lilies or colourful gerberas, hand-tied or teardrop bouquets, your flowers will be beautiful quality blooms. As well as your bouquet, our florists can create coordinating bridesmaids’ flowers, as well as buttonholes, corsages, pedestal, table and aisle arrangements. Available in a range of colours and styles, our blooms will add loveliness and fragrance to the happiness and laughter of your day.

Ceremony specifics

Got a favourite song which holds a special meaning for you? You are welcome to bring your own music† or we can provide a traditional selection for you. Or, perhaps you’d like a member of your party to read a piece of poetry or prose during your ceremony? Just let us know. Finally, if you’d like to have commemorative items engraved, we advise doing it when you get back, as itinerary changes are possible.

Champagne breakfast in bed

It’s the morning after the day before! What more perfect way to celebrate than with a Champagne breakfast in bed? To choose this added extra simply tell us your preferred time (not too early, we’d say) and your cabin steward will deliver it to your door. Your Champagne breakfast in bed may be pre-booked and pre-paid too within four months of your cruise departure date, so you can plan ahead, have it as a surprise to your partner or request it as a delightful gift from your nearest and dearest.

Photography and videography services

Remembering and reliving your amazing day through your wedding photographs or film is all part of the wedding magic. That’s why it’s so important to have an experienced and talented photographer to capture those memories for you.

Cue our photography team!

As our professionals work on board, they have all the insider knowledge of the most stunning, unique backdrops to your pictures.

First, they’ll take time to find out exactly how you dream your photographs or film will look. Do you want to capture the anticipation of your wedding party getting ready? Or are you simply seeking something a little more traditional, like formal shots of the ceremony and reception? Or a mixture of both? Photographs or video** or both? Our photographers will create the bespoke wedding album and DVD package that you plan together, to share with friends and family.

Photography package prices start from £300 with the option to pay a photography deposit at the time of booking; perfect for planning ahead. Once on board, simply settle the difference via your on-board account.

Gifts for special people

Want to say thanks to some special people on the day? We can take care of that too, with a range of gifts for the whole ceremony party, including yourself!

You can opt for traditional Champagne, chocolates or flowers, of course. Or you could choose one of our exclusive celebration packages to make the day even more special. Whichever gift you choose, it will be presented with your personal message, and delivered to the cabin on the day of your choice. 

If some of your friends and family can’t join you, but would like to give you a wedding gift, then they can order items from our Gift Collection before you sail. We will then deliver their gift to your cabin. Or, they can give you Gift Credit certificates, in any value from £5, so you can choose to enjoy your choice of ‘this is the life’ moments on board. Gift Credit is applied to your account before you embark, for you to splash out how you like on board - in the shops, spa, bars, Select Dining restaurants, art and photo gallery and on shore excursions. 

To order, friends and relatives can call 0344 3388 595 quoting your booking reference, cruise number and cabin number. Calls cost 5p per minute plus your telephone company’s network access charge.
