Hovertravel, the fastest way to cross the Solent, has teamed up with Priory Bay hotel on the Isle of Wight, to create a wedding package that guests will not forget.

When you book exclusive use of Priory Bay’s 60 acre estate, or get married on their private beach (part of the hotel's Boathouse on the Beach package) for your civil wedding or wedding reception, you can now also charter your very own hovercraft for you and your guests - which arrives in style, right on the beach.

The hovercraft leaves from Southsea in Portsmouth and takes just 10 minutes to cross the Solent to Priory Bay beach, seating up to 89 people.

Andrew Palmer, owner of Priory Bay said: “Whether you’re looking for an elegant country house steeped in grandeur, or a simple, yet chic, barefoot wedding on a stunning, sandy beach, Priory Bay has something for everyone looking for their fairytale wedding. Our stunning beach is the only private beach you can get married on in the UK, now we have teamed up with Hovertravel, you can land on our beach in a hovercraft, which you can’t do anywhere else in the world.”

Loretta Lale, Marketing Manager from Hovertravel said: “We enjoy being able to offer our craft for private hire, as it gives more people the chance to try out this unique and memorable experience. Priory Bay is the only hotel on the planet that offers a private hovercraft as wedding transportation.”
