Weddings, Ceremonies & Civil Partnerships

Avoid the trouble of finding additional venues and moving your guests from location to location. Chichester Yacht Club is licensed for Ceremonies so why not host your entire day with us. Performed in our Upper Deck room, for up to 100 guests, with floor to ceiling windows looking out on stunning views of Chichester Harbour and the South Downs National Park, Chichester Yacht Club offers a unique venue for your Ceremony or Civil Partnership.

You will have exclusive use of the Upper Deck with a private bar, dance floor and Balcony. Wedding breakfasts can be tailored for up to 120 guests with our own in-house catering, dining combinations.  Invite 140 guests for an evening of dancing, topped off with a choice of delicious buffets. 


Harbour Views for your Wedding Reception Photographs


An idyllic spot for photographs with further seascape views from the Canal at Saltern’s Lock, or our pontoons, will enhance your memorable day. Some couples have even arranged to arrive by boat with their guests lining the Balcony or foreshore, for that really special picture.


Dedicated Wedding Reception Planner


Your wedding planner will be with you all the way from first meeting to your special day, ensuring individual pricing, affordability and flexibility to fashion the celebration of your dreams. Likewise the Head Chef will be on hand to advise on your wedding breakfast choice and planning.

We perfectly understand that families might wish to add their own personal touch.  Generally the Upper Deck and Balcony will be made available from up to two days before the reception to create your own individual experience. But equally important you can just leave everything to the team should you wish.

We can recommend local accommodation, so why not make your event really special by making a short break of it.

Chichester Yacht Club is a great venue for a stylish day: experience the difference!
