Weddings at the Mary Rose – Blog Post

We know that the Mary Rose Museum might not immediately spring to mind as a wedding venue. However, the museum’s beautiful events spaces really do create a magical location in which to celebrate your special day.


Enter the enthralling world of King Henry VIII’s pride and joy: the Mary Rose. The museum is truly steeped in the romance of the past. The Mary Rose museum is located at the heart of Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard, overlooking the stunning HMS Victory.


Our wedding venue hire includes exclusive use of all three floors of the museum so that your guests are provided with a tailored personal experience. Our knowledgeable museum staff will be on hand at all times to answer any questions that your guests may have. You can even choose to have our artefact handling tables and authentically costumed staff present should this fit your wedding theme.


Why not provide your guests with live entertainment as they explore the objects on display? From authentic Tudor music to relaxing jazz, or thoroughly modern dance music, the choice is entirely yours. You can even install a dance floor in a gallery. The possibilities are endless.


All venue hire includes exclusive use of our bridge balcony, which affords stunning views of the Dockyard and HMS Victory. It makes for the perfect location to sip a glass of champagne and enjoy a canapé whilst soaking up the unforgettable atmosphere.

In 2014 we also hope to be able to offer ceremonies at the museum, so you can tie the knot in a range of exciting venues. From an intimate ceremony in our beautiful Wardroom to a grand event in our stunning Admiral’s Gallery we will have a space and an option for everyone’s needs.


To find out more please contact us at events@maryrose.org or call (023) 9281 2931 2315. We would be delighted to show you around our events spaces and to discuss how we can tailor the venue to your needs.
