I have been photographing weddings for a while now and I have visited some fantastic wedding venues, I would like to share with your my favourite wedding venues from around Hampshire and the surrounding area.
There are lots of different types of wedding venue from churches to registry offices to golf clubs to hotels. There is a wedding venue for everyone tastes and budget.
I have been lucky enough to photograph and be part of some many people’s big days.
Here are some of my favourite wedding venues.
Fairthorne is a very unique wedding venue, I was lucky enough to photograph their first ever Wedding last month.
Situated in Botley, Southampton this venue is perfect for a marquee wedding. The venue is out of the way enough that you wont have any gate crashers yet not too far away that you have to travel for miles.
Bride and Groom can stay in the very glamorous yurt, and guests can camp on-site. The YMCA group can also provide activities for children to keep them occupied through out the day.
The grounds are huge and there are lots of places to have the perfect wedding photographs taken.
The McDonald golf club and spa is a great venue if you want to one location, for your ceremony wedding breakfast and evening reception, but is also great if you choose to just have your reception.
There are two venue rooms to choose from and beautiful grounds around the golf course to have your wedding photographs taken.
The Club is also a hotel, so all your guests can stay the night.
Tudor House is a unique venue to have your wedding ceremony. Situated in the heart of Southampton its easy to get to and close to lots of hotels for your guests to stay.
Tudor house is Southampton’s most historic building and is a beautiful venue for a civil ceremony
You can chose to have just your ceremony at Tudor House as well as your wedding breakfast and evening reception.
Ceremonies are held in The Georgian room can accommodate up to 35 guests which is a perfect location for an intimate wedding.
I photographed Reg and Julia’s Wedding here earlier on this year, the venue has a lovely garden which you can use to have your wedding photographs taken, or just a small walk away are Southampton’s historic walls which also make the perfect backdrop for your beautiful Southampton Wedding Photographs.
The yacht club is a beautiful venue on the seafront in Portsmouth.
The interior is very regal and ornate. There are two different rooms that you can choose from for the ceremony, and a large function room for your evening reception.
The club doesn’t have its own grounds but right outside there is a large open ground right next to a beautiful old church. You are within walking distance of the water front which is another perfect place to have your couples photographs.
