If you love the water views unique to Southampton, you may wish to make your vows and promises at the Harbour Hotel or Kuti's Royal Pier. If you and your family have a passion for history, the stunning Westgate Hall or Tudor House and Gardens, positioned in the heart of Southampton's Old Town offer a beautiful, historic setting.

Why choose an approved premises in Southampton?

The freedom to personalise your ceremony is another key factor when thinking about getting married in a venue.

Working with the venue and the Registrars you have the freedom to enhance your ceremony with your chosen readings, music, and vows.

Remember that we have to ensure that some legal words are spoken during the ceremony, and we are not allowed to include anything which may be religious in nature. If you would like a specific enhancement to your ceremony, you are welcome to ask us if it can be included.
