Wedding Ferry

Wedding ferry services around 

Cruise calm waters with your guests on your wedding day

Arrive at your church or wedding reception in style

To start your special day Hobbs of Henley can transport you and your guests to and from accessible riverside venues of your choice on board one of our elegant boats. After the excitement of the wedding service itself, a short river trip can provide a welcome breather.

For the main bridal party, (up to 12 passengers), we can offer our umpire's launch Enchantress – specially built for the Hobbs family back in 1913 - or our covered Edwardian-style motor launch Lily-Anna. 

We can also transport your whole wedding party on one of our larger vessels such as the Waterman – please contact us for details, and see our wedding ferry pricelist.
