A Titanic venue for couples’ big day

By David Young

A Titanic-themed wedding might not provide the ideal metaphor for a plain-sailing future together but that is unlikely to discourage couples reserving Northern Ireland's latest venue for their big day.

The Titanic Suite perched high in the roof of a new £100m visitor attraction in Belfast dedicated to the doomed liner has started taking bookings ahead of its opening next year.

The fifth and sixth floors of the centre replicate the opulent surrounds of the ship's first class banqueting room, complete with sweeping grand staircase.

Proclaimed as the largest function area in the region, with space for up to 1,000 guests, tourism chiefs hope the venue will host all manner of private events, including conferences and gala dinners.

The Titanic Belfast attraction, which houses the suite, is being built on the site where the ship was constructed over a century ago and overlooks Belfast Lough, where it was launched in 1911.
