Dreaming of a Cunard Wedding

Posted on Monday, March 12, 2012 |
Cunard is all about luxury, glamour and nostalgia for the days of the great ocean liners unhurriedly crossing oceans and getting passengers to their destinations in stately style. Service is first-class, food is impeccable and style abounds- the perfect atmosphere not only for a holiday, but for the wedding of your dreams. Cunard is now, after 171 years of plying the seas, offering passengers the chance to exchange vows and celebrate in style onboard.

Starting this year, wedding packages will be available which include a ceremony performed by the captain, flowers and cake, traditional music, a bottle of Veuve Cliquot, the services of a wedding co-coordinator, and numerous other details right down to the invitations and thank you cards. Couples will have a wedding that is easy and stress-free with most things organised for them, and capture the romance of a traditional sea voyage- imagine Rose and Jack on the Titanic, without the tragic ending.

The wedding initiative has been made possible by a re-flagging of the fleet- they are now registered in Hamilton,  Bermuda rather than Southampton. Ships flagged under the U.K are not allowed to offer wedding except in port, but this move means that Cunard is free to do so- but can still fly the red ensign as Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory.
