As Featured In
The Dougarie Boathouse
Your venue to use as you wish
We pride ourselves on giving you the flexibility and freedom to host your wedding day exactly the way you want it. So, if you choose to book the venue-only option, we can recommend some truly innovative, fantastic local suppliers, from food to flowers and of course, that all-important music. You can of course choose to source your own.
You are free to choose and design the layout of the seating, and the table settings and decorate the Boathouse in any way you wish.
If you select one of our complete packages, we have our own trusted team who we’ve been working with at the Dougarie Estate for many years.
The only supplier we do require that you use from our list is The Boathouse Bar Company. They are able to provide a pay bar (if you’d like one) and/or for serving your own drinks, for safety, legal, and licensing reasons.
“We were able to put our own stamp on it, use our own suppliers,
The support and help we received were second to none, nothing was too much trouble, from Joel the Barman and his staff to our Celebrant Sarah !! We loved the fact we had exclusive use of The Boathouse, we were able to put our own stamp on it, use our own suppliers, and decorate to our taste, not that the venue needed anything less is more in this case”

“The venue itself was just as stunning as when we first fell in love with it back in September 2021. The Boathouse Beauty & charm speaks for itself as does the scenery!
We can’t deny the weather makes all the difference with endless photograph possibilities outside and if you are lucky the odd seal will make an appearance..”
