Welcome to

Girl in a jacket

We are open for bookings on weekdays and weekends. We offer a friendly and caring service for all religions and also for guests who prefer not to have a religious ceremony.

For your ceremony or memory cruise we take you out on the beautiful River Avon on our heated boat, The Rita Ellen.

The River Avon rises near Rugby, flows past Coventry, Leamington Spa & Warwick and then into Stratford upon Avon. The Avon joins the River Severn at Tewkesbury and then flows into the sea. Your ceremony will be at a pretty spot some distance away from the busy Stratford upon Avon town centre. You may hold your ceremony with or without a priest, minister or celebrant. We respect your choice.

Currently the maximum number of guests is 20 (twenty).  This may increase if restrictions are eased or decrease if new restrictions come into place. We keep a close eye on current guidelines and can discuss the number of guests when you make contact.

Here are a selection of things that we offer...
