Board one of our vintage barges at Maldon Quay for a really memorable reception.  Enjoy a “Two Island”, two hour river cruise on the tide to show your guests our beautiful Saltmarsh Coast, heading past the National Trust Northey Island to Osea, a beautiful privately owned island on a bend in the River Blackwater.  Welcome drinks are served in the cockpit on deck, where guests will also enjoy the sights during the sail.  Your wedding breakfast is served in the large saloon, and you can invite further guests for an evening party on the Quay.

All your food is provided by our in-house catering company, using locally sourced ingredients and prepared freshly on board by our friendly team.
