Rib Wedding

Hi there all you ribbers,

A few of you may recall the other month we started a thread exploring the possibilities of organising our wedding using the rib.

This is something we are now seriously looking at doing next year (2008), but need some help in locating the right place that ticks all the boxes.

Our intention is to use the rib(s) as a wedding car to arrive to the ceremony.
The idea being that we could arrive, moor up and walk (close by) to the ceremony. This idea allows more locations with idyllic venues to be considered.

We are told that the south coast has many classy marina’s that may be suitable, but we will consider anywhere in the uk (cove, beach, bay etc), so long as it has suitable mooring to avoid beaching and carrying people, also a quality and suitable venue for the ceremony.

We have had to move away from the idea of having the ceremony within the rib due to the obvious risks from the uk weather.

Info on suitable locations would be:

• Location.
• Venue for ceremony, hotel or similar approved for ceremonies (website, pics, prices etc).
• Mooring facilities adjacent to above, permission and cost and contacts.
• Launch facilities, adjacent or close by (details, permission, and access).
• Any thing else we’ve missed.

We are also happy to consider any offers or services that may benefit promoting the forum (not to profit from) or ribbing in general. There may also be an interest from such organisations as Rib International. In which case we would be happy to merely have some decent photos.

I couldn't go without adding a picture of my seriously sexy girl.

Osbourne house would be good, wedding on the grass next to the private beach so Bride and Groom arrive in separate ribs perhaps. It can be hired as a venue, may be registered for marriages.

Slightly more wacky ideas might include geting married on Brambles bank at low water or how about one of the Solent Forts, again they can be hired out with pick ups from Gunwharf Quays.

Cheers Pete,

That does look very good.

The only issue with getting out on the beach is if the weather is rough on the day, unless it is enclosed and keeps out any swell or chop. What is it like?

Thanks

Chris B

My wife and I got married at St Mawes Castle on the Roseland Peninsula in Cornwall 3 years ago, beautiful venue with awesome views, heres a link to it

I thought there was a jetty and small boat house but could be wrong. (the great unwashed aren't allowed to close you know, bit like Port Solent really)

The beach is very sheltered. Have a look on Google Earth, couple of miles East of Cowes. There must be some great locations around the coast though, and good luck

Pete

Bosham Church and of course a marquee from me on the green right next to the quay . You would need to choose your dates for good tides . We are doing one there on 8 August this year and they are arriving and departing by RIB . So come down and have a look at what we can do!!!!

I'm not sure that's the thread you are most noted for!

Have you considered HMS Warrior?

What about a top of the range fleet of 5 scorpions taking you up the Beaulieu river at high tide to the Beaulieu Abby for that perfect wedding? And has all the facilities at the location, hotel etc

Regards
Stuart

venue for rib wedding

One possibilty would be the beautiful Portmeirion Village if you were careful and worked out the right tides for arrival.

You have been there already!
