Venue Service

By Derek & Andy, on 05 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Feb 2018

We just want to express our deep thanks for everything you and your team did to make our wedding reception run so smoothly. All of our guest had a fabulous time.The venue looked amazing, we were so pleased with the table cloths, chair covers, lovely blue glasses. The food was lovely (the chocolate dessert went down particularly well) and the dance floor got a very good going over. We were also so lucky with the weather (so glad we did not choose this weekend!) it was wonderful drinking champagne in the sun. Please thank the entire team for us, everyone from the waiting staff to the bar staff were incredibly helpful and kind to our guest.

Beautiful Location!
Venue Service

By Tom & Nicki, on 02 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 23 Sep 2017

We picked the Royal Southampton Yacht Club because of its beautiful location. Being from Southampton and enjoying being by the water, it was a perfect venue for us, and as soon as we had our first meeting we knew it was the place. Becca, our wedding coordinator, was fantastic all the way through helping us plan our perfect day and she really helped us when we had difficult queries. She would go to many lengths to help our visions become a reality. During the day Becca and her team worked tirelessly to accommodate us and our guests. It really was the perfect location for the perfect day! We would highly recommend the Royal Southampton Yacht Club to other couples on the search for their dream venue.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Becca & the events team for hosting our wedding on 27th August. Beforehand, Becca was positive and helpful and on the day everything was amazing. The room looked wonderful and there was nothing that was too much to ask for. We had a wonderful day and our guests loved the venue. Thank you again!

Festival by the River!
Venue Service

By Hollie & Aaron, on 02 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Jul 2017

The day exceeded our expectations: beautiful venue, mountains of tasty food and relaxed service. Exactly what we wanted for a laid back but well organised 'festival by the river’.

"Royal Southampton Yacht Club did a fantastic job, our wedding day went perfectly. Our friends and family were really impressed too and won't stop talking about it! We had asked a lot of them, but all the staff delivered everything we asked of them, everyone was brilliant. The food was amazing some of the best food we have ever had at a wedding, luckily it was our own! We were very fortunate, that we were able to completely personalise our day, we didn't feel we were on a conveyor belt, like at some venues. Ocean Village and Gins are very special locations and we will always remember our big day on the side of the River Beaulieu - thank you Royal Southampton!"

Hi Gary, My wife Beverley and I wanted to thank you and your team for hosting our Evening Wedding Party in the RSYC Ocean Village this Summer. We just wanted to take this opportunity to say that your team are a real credit to you, they really made our day so special because it was effortless without any hitches and nothing to them was too much trouble. The creative design and planning behind the whole event by Becca was truly professional; as was managing it all so that it ran smoothly on the night, which by the way Carly does to perfection. A special thanks to them both and to Jade who gave up going out on her birthday to work that night, they were all fantastic! Now as for the food and service both Glenn and Ahmed really out did themselves and made a BBQ feel like a gourmet night out ... all our guests without exception loved it all; so thank you all for your efforts and the great service which was second to none and why the Club is such a fabulous wedding venue and all your staff are true professionals. Kind regards Richard and Beverley Symss

Wedding Review
Venue Service

By Michelle Pentland, on 14 Sep 2015

I got married at Royal Southampton Yacht Club. It is a fabulous venue. The Admiral Room where you get married was spacious and set out nicely. The tables were set out very nicely and looked so pretty. Our guests enjoyed sitting out on the Terrace and the views of the boats are amazing. The staff were very friendly and could not do enough to look after our guests and ourselves. They accommodated everything we asked for on the day. The day was organised and went smoothly. The food is presented nicely and tastes amazing. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the food. Could not fault the venue at all and would recommend it to anyone.

Venue Service

By Amy and Jake Macey, on 27 Aug 2015

Since our wedding we have had non stop comments from our guests saying that RSYC was the best wedding venue they've ever been to, the best chef, the best staff, etc...and they meant it! The venue is beautiful with ceremony room upstairs, bar integrated into the reception area (to keep guests dancing), dancefloor, balcony areas with views over the harbour, impressive front entrance which looks great in photos, clean toilets, even the chance to go down onto the pontoon for photos. The food was spectacular, the chef is a true perfectionist and tailor-made a menu especially for us. RSYC is happy to advise and suggest things but will leave as much as you want up to you (for example, we made our own decorations and stationary but the venue can do it for you). From the moment Becca took on the organisation of our wedding she was prompt, efficient and conscientious, she made us feel relaxed and that everything was under control. On the day her and the staff were friendly and professional, everything ran like clockwork. They also really looked like they enjoyed the event which makes a difference! They were really flexible and Becca did everything she could to make our lives easier. Even the next day pick-up at the venue was made really easy by the thoughtful staff at RSYC. I just can't praise or thank the venue highly enough...it was perfect!

The Club was wonderful....
Venue Service

By Will and Tracy Roper, on 30 Jul 2015

The club was wonderful, it’s so well appointed anyway that a few simple flowers and decorations made it shine effortlessly. The location is absolutely unique and stunning and the staff made the process of planning and preparing stress free and painless. The day went so smoothly and they took everything in their stride. All of our guests commented how amazing the club was.

A perfect setting
Venue Service

By Helan & Stephen Thomas, on 09 Jan 2015

Steve and I had the most amazing day at the RSYC. The staff and club went to great lengths to make sure our wedding reception was something really special. Nothing was too much trouble, the food as always excellent and the venue superb with stunning views over Ocean Village. The perfect setting for two very nautical people.
