As you arrive through the ornate wrought-iron gates, New Place Southampton in Hampshire never fails to impress. This grade I listed manor house exudes total sophistication for wedding events. A true masterpiece of brickwork, the house is a combination of Tudor and Elizabethan eccentricities and a subtle, contemporary finish. The home's history is entirely fitting with its purpose as a place for romance and love. Originally commissioned as a wedding gift, the grand estate was designed by famous British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. His efforts are nothing short of spectacular, and the beautiful Manor House remains a breathtaking focal point of beauty and historic grandeur.

Facilities and Capacity

Whether it's for your wedding reception, ceremony, or both, the team at New Place Southampton strives to ensure your big day is unique. The professional staff works tirelessly to bring your dream visions to life, giving you an event you will never forget. Licensed for civil ceremonies, the house is exclusively yours for the wedding day, with no other weddings taking place simultaneously. Several charming interior rooms are available for the special celebrations, giving you the option to choose the perfect space. The Dining Room and the Bristol room both offer a beautiful and understated backdrop to exchange vows, ideal for intimate and more lavish affairs. The Lutyens Bar is a cosy and enticing spot to host the drinks reception afterwards while you explore the grounds for your once-in-a-lifetime formal photos. Returning to the Arden Suite, a host of dining tables, chairs, and a dance floor await you for an unforgettable evening of dinner and dancing.

Services Offered

New Place offers all-inclusive wedding packages, starting with a dedicated and experienced wedding coordinator to help along the way. The function spaces permit up to 110 guests for dining and 150 evening guests, giving you plenty of scope to include those dearest to you.

After the big day, guests can enjoy a relaxing time in the leisure centre to unwind before the final departure.

Perfect from start to finish

My Husband and I can can not thank New place Hotel enough for helping us plan and run our perfect day. It was truly amazing and I just want to do it again. Our wedding planner was great with her communication, our MC was great on the day, she looked after every need all through the day and made sure we were happy every step of the way. It was a magical day in the most beautiful of surroundings. I would recommend new place again and again for anyones wedding day. Can’t wait to return in a year for our first anniversary.

A perfect day!

Honestly, we can't thank the team at New Place enough.

Planning a wedding through the pandemic wasn't easy but the team did everything they could to ensure we were able to plan a day we always dreamed of. They kept us in the loop as much as they could and were extremely accommodating when it came to changing the date of our wedding. They were amazing from the very start when we visited a wedding fayre, all the way up to the moment we said goodbye to our guests on our wedding day. Every email, phone call and venue visit came with great professionalism, kindness and consideration. We couldn't fault them.

The grounds are stunning, the rooms are lovely and the food tasted amazing. Our guests loved it and had the best day too.

We will only ever have good things to say about New Place and it will always hold a place in our hearts. We can’t wait to come back! Thank you so so much.

Beautiful Venue

We had our wedding this weekend at New Place and I could not have asked for more, it's such a beautiful venue and the staff were brilliant and so helpful! Everything went so smoothly. Kay was absolutely brilliant throughout the planning process and was amazing in making sure our day was perfect. Eleanor and Matt our masters of ceremonies made sure our day was as stress free as possible and were just so helpful and lovely. They all went above and beyond and I could not recommend New Place enough, thank you so much!

What a perfect day!

After looking at a number of venues online we went to see New Place for their wedding fair. It was the first venue we saw in person and we booked our wedding that same day! We knew it was the right venue for us immediately.
The key things that appealed to us were: we could do the whole wedding on site, the accommodation is lovely and affordable so guests could stay on site, there were lots of lovely indoor locations that we could do photos of the weather was rubbish, the grounds and hotel are both beautiful, the staff on the open day were friendly and helpful, and it was within our budget!!
From the day we booked it the staff here have been amazing. A special thanks to Jacinta, Kay, Socrates, Nicu and Liam - they looked after us so well both in advance and on the day.
The wedding day itself went off without a hitch. The staff had everything in hand, I loved the little drinks and cakes they gave us in the Getting Ready rooms, the whole place looked wonderful and everyone who attended said how seamless the day was.
Thank you New Place!!

A beautiful venue

What a beautiful venue, we could not recommend it enough, the grounds are beautifully kept, Food is delicious, the accommodation great and the staff are wonderful!

From the minute we began planning our wedding the dedication from the team was seen, from little reminders here and there to always being down the end of the phone for a panicking bride a few weeks before!

The whole process is amazing especially with meetings close to the day just to make sure everything has been done and is ready for the big day.
Thank you so much for making our wedding day so perfect! A huge thank you to Kay and Nicu, what amazing people to have as part of your team. Kay was brilliant from day one and helped everything fit together, nothing was too much to ask.
Nicu helped to make the day go smoothly and genuinely puts his heart and soul into every little detail.

Thank you again, we cant wait to visit on our first anniversary

Perfect occasion

It seems only a moment ago that Ly and I were getting ready for our big day and here we are almost a week later.

It truly was a perfect occasion for us both and our family and friends are still buzzing from it!

Kay, you and your team at New Place are Legends and you deserve every bit of praise. Nothing was too much trouble and right from the start you made us all feel welcome. Nico, Socrates, Sue and the girls on reception were so patient as we brought in new guest after new guest. The Hotel is jaw dropping and it added so much to the day. The staff were always there to help and the way they handled us during the Reception was so friendly yet professional. 5 Stars for everyone but especially you Kay.

You are an amazing group of people and we are blessed to call you friends and family. We are so proud of what we all achieved together and it will be a wonderful memory for the rest of our lives.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you……actually we will never be able to thank you enough, so why not come to Estonia and we will look after you here !

Thank you New Place Hotel

We just wanted to send an email to thank you all so much for making our wedding day so special.

Jacinta, your knowledge and expertise of how the day runs was extremely appreciated. Thank you for all your support and guidance in the lead up to our big day. Especially for answering my frantic emails and putting me at ease. You were wonderful!

Can you please also pass on our gratitude to Nicu and Liam who went over and beyond to look after us on the day. Our guests loved them! What superb representatives of the hotel they both are.

Finally, we would like to thank all of the bar staff, waiting staff and other hotel staff that work so hard to uphold such a high standard of New Place. So many people commented on how fantastic the service was.

We are so pleased we were able to get married at New Place and it’s a day we will never forget, so thank you again.

Thanks from Neil and Hazels wedding

Jacinta & Kay,

Hazel and myself would like to say a huge thank you to yourselves, Nicu and Liam for making our wedding at New Place on 30th June so special for us.

From the moment we first made an enquiry through to the day itself, your engagement with us and regular communications kept us informed and made us feel valued clients – not just a number but a couple whose wedding was important to you.

On the day Nicu and Liam continued to provide us with a great experience.

I must not forget to thank the chef(s) and other staff who served us so well on the day.

We had a memorable and special day thanks to you all at New Place.
