P&O Cruises Weddings

The P&O Cruises Weddings at Sea package means a heavenly day of love and laughter for you. You probably have a picture in your head of how you’d like your wedding day to be, and P&O strives to help ensure the dream in your head comes true. It can all feel a bit daunting to arrange too, but you can rely on P&O’s knowledge and attention to detail to make it all as stress-free as possible.

Choose your perfect venue

Weddings at Sea are available on many of the ships in P&O’s fleet. Whether you’re seeking a sense of tradition or the contemporary, a family-friendly atmosphere or a ship that’s exclusively for adults, P&O can help.

Ceremony Venues

Ventura – The Ivory Suite is a purpose built function room with seating for up to 40 guests. Situated on the Sun Deck, it is a modern and contemporary venue with an abundance of natural light and a cool neutral color scheme – ideal for a sophisticated wedding.
 
Arcadia – The Viceroy Room is a restful, contemporary space with a timeless feel. Seating up to 25 guests comfortably, it is ideal for an intimate ceremony.
 
Oceana – The Card Room is Oceana’s private function room. Guests can enjoy a ceremony conducted by the ship’s Captain away from the hustle and bustle of public areas, with windows looking out to sea. This venue holds up to 30 guests.
 
Azura – Situated on the Aqua Deck and nestled adjacent to the serenity of Oasis spa, The Ivory Suite is a modern and contemporary venue with an abundance of natural light – ideal for an elegant ceremony. This room holds up to 40 guests.

Your own personal onboard wedding coordinator

The moment you step on board, P&O’s professional Wedding Coordinator will help you organize all the details that’ll make your day really special and memorable.

The days before

You want to feel special during every day of your wedding cruise, not just on the day itself. So, a bottle of Champagne and flowers will be waiting in your cabin to celebrate the start of your special cruise. You can treat yourself to all sorts of indulgences on board in the days leading up to your wedding, too. Then, when it arrives, P&O’s staff will take care of all the little details. As everything you could possibly want or need is a short stroll from your cabin, you can enjoy your day without any of the usual worries about getting from the ceremony to the reception either. Even better, your honeymoon can begin from the moment you say ‘I do’.

The main event

Your wedding ceremony should be everything you wish for, so P&O provides the heart of this within the package and lets you add the extras that make the day truly yours; from bouquets to buttonholes and cakes to photography. Held in a private venue, with the scent of fresh flowers and soft music drifting through the air, your Captain will conduct your ceremony. When you sign the register, there’ll be a Champagne toast (the first of many, no doubt). Your witnesses can be your choice of any two adults aged 18 and over. However, if your wedding is to be more intimate, with just the two of you, two of the ship’s company will be honored to act as your witnesses.

Invitations and thank you notes

Before you set sail, P&O can send you wedding invitations so you can send personal invitations to join your celebration. Your Wedding Coordinator can also arrange for Thank You notes to be delivered to your cabin once you’re on board.

Pressing services

If your bridal outfits need pressing before your wedding, as bride and groom, you enjoy this service free of charge. Please ask your on board Wedding Coordinator to arrange this service for you. (Just do be aware, P&O may not be able to offer the pressing service on garments of a particularly delicate and/or intricate nature.)

The finer details

Discuss your planned wedding party size and venue seating with your travel counselor when you book. Then, it’s all in the details on the day. So talk through every tiny aspect with your Wedding Coordinator once you’re on board. Got a favorite song that holds a special meaning for you? You are welcome to bring your own wedding music or P&O can provide a traditional selection for you. Or, perhaps you’d like a member of your wedding party to read a piece of poetry or prose during your ceremony? Just let your coordinator know. Finally, if you’d like to have commemorative items engraved, P&O advises doing it when you get back, as itinerary changes are possible.

Celebrations and Receptions

The food on your wedding day should be something you savor as much as the day itself. The pride and passion of P&O’s chefs is clear to see (and taste) on each and every plate. The dedicated and experienced team – from the inspiring Executive Chefs (all ordained into the prestigious Chaîne des Rôtisseurs gastronomic society), through the highly skilled galley team of chefs, bakers and pâtissiers, to the knowledgeable and attentive waiters – is simply the very best in the business. And wine experts have selected and paired some of the world’s best wines with your dining choices. But the cherry on the cake is the team of Food Heroes. These leading lights of the contemporary British food scene have lavished their culinary magic on P&O’s menus. And Marco Pierre White, the Godfather of modern cuisine, has designed the superb Gala Dinner menu.
 
Your wedding day is (naturally) all about you and you can choose a morning or afternoon ceremony, at 11:00 am, 2:00 pm or 3:30 pm. (However, if your wedding party will have more than 20 guests, you should reserve the 11.00am wedding, as this gives you much more choice of where to hold your reception afterwards, especially if you would prefer a more private celebration.)

Traditional Wedding Luncheon or Private Wedding Luncheon (Adonia, Aradia, Azura, Oriana, Ventura)
 
After your morning wedding ceremony, you can choose to have a traditional wedding luncheon in which a separate area can be laid out for you in one of our main restaurants, where you will be served with the set wedding menu. (The venue will be shared with other passengers.) Or, if your party is 20 or more, on selected ships, you can opt for a more private reception by reserving one of the Select Dining venues (cover charges apply).

Wedding Dinner
 
For an evening dinner reception, P&O’s Select Dining venues offer signature restaurants – intimate settings for a seated meal for smaller wedding parties – in which to relish gourmet indulgence, with a bespoke level of service to match. Standard cover charges apply. Select Dining venues are subject to party size.
 
Wedding Buffet and Canapes
 
If you’d prefer a more informal reception, choose from one of the sumptuous buffet menus, which is served in one of the function rooms. Or for something lighter, you can select from a range of delicious canapés that can be served in the privacy of your cabin or function room. Where possible, P&O will offer exclusive use of the function room. Buffets are only available for 11:00 am and 2:00 pm weddings.

Wedding Cakes

One of the most symbolic moments – and major photo opportunities - of your wedding day is when you cut the cake. The 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 or traditional fruit. (Alternatively, if you’re a bit of a chocoholic, opt for our wickedly divine chocolate sponge.) It will be delicately and beautifully decorated with traditional white icing, topped with sugar flowers, giving it a contemporary and elegant look. Cake boxes are also available, if you are saving the top tier for a second celebration when you return home (or if you just want to enjoy more later!)

Wedding Flowers

Do you see yourself with a pretty traditional posy, a modern exotic bouquet or a dramatic buttonhole? P&O’s on board florists can provide options for you to pick from. From romantic roses, elegant lilies or colorful gerberas, to hand-tied or teardrop bouquets, your flowers will be beautiful quality blooms. In addition, the florists can create beautiful coordinating bridesmaids’ flowers, as well as corsages, pedestal, table and aisle arrangements. Available in a range of colors and styles, the blooms will add loveliness and fragrance to the happiness and laughter of your day. Please note that Adonia’s flowers are silk.

Photography and Videography Services (Videography not available on board Adonia or Oriana)

Wistfully 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. As P&O’s 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? A mixture of both? Photographs, videos or both? The photographers will create the bespoke wedding album and DVD package that you plan together, to share with friends and family.
