My favourite wedding venues in Southampton
If you are looking to tie the knot, Southampton has some of the best and most picturesque wedding venues. Looking at the venues I photographed we will explore a list of five of my favourite wedding venues in Southampton. While these venues have their unique strengths, there is no arguing that each of the venues below is charming and spectacular in their own right.
New Place Hotel
Couples looking for a knightly wedding will be happy to set their eye on the ever-stunning New Place Hotel. With a grand entrance entailing a wrought- iron gate at the front of the compound and leading into a stately manor, you and your guest will not lack stunning spots to stage your wedding photos. The expansive venue has plenty of space to goof around after the wedding to heart’s content as you will have the venue to yourself the whole day. The chef and the staff are renowned for their exceptional services and attention to detail. For couples looking for memorable wedding photos, I would sugest a late evening photoshoot outside the main entrance.
