We had our wedding onboard HMS Gannet and our reception at the Commissioners House! Was a fantastic day, all the staff were so nice and very helpful. All our guests has an amazing time and we would definitely recommend for a venue. We also spent our 5th wedding anniversary there and was a lovely day out - the improvements since we got married there are amazing!
Our experience of booking our wedding reception at the Dockyard was positive and straightforward from start to finish. The information pack was full of relevant information, and during a planning meeting every detail was covered. During the build up to the wedding it was so nice to be in safe and experienced hands. On the day we couldn’t have asked for a better level of support, just the right balance of being there for us but not intrusive. All of our guests had a great time, and having the garden so close to the marquee gave children a safe place to play. Being able to use Commissioners House and other areas of the Dockyard for photographs allowed some wonderful photos.
