Beautiful wedding ceremony with a lovely sea breeze
Becky, Zoe and the whole team at the Royal Southern Yacht Club were amazing at organising and holding our wedding ceremony just as the lock down rules were lifted on weddings. The team streamed the wedding to our loved ones in Sweden and Spain which was so important to us. The upper deck is gorgeous for a ceremony with an amazing view of the river Hamble, the Solent and the sail boats. After the ceremony we had bubbles on the balcony and enjoyed being together with our guests. No one wanted to leave when we headed off. It felt very open, airy and friendly and the light from the sea makes for lovely pictures. (Pictures by Matt Parry Photography)Sent on 12/08/2020

A delight to be with
My sons wedding to our now daughter in law, Oliver and Samantha, was an exceptional event due to the work by your staff and self on Friday,Saturday and Sunday morning. The room was a delight when guests walked in, and during the setting up on Friday nothing was too much effort. Your management team were a delight to be with, helpful in every way.Sent on 17/09/2019
The catering on Saturday was of a very high standard, and the comments from many many guests was of delight at such fine food from a private members establishment not a commercial restaurant. The competitors in your local have a great deal of work to do to catch up!
May I also ask that you pass on my thanks to the upstairs staff who put in such sterling work to get rooms ready before the allotted time which allowed guests to get ready for what was a most wonderful day.
I will most certainly recommend your venue to our friends as the place to stay when in the Southampton area
Any wedding booked between Monday - Thursday in 2021 will be able to benefit from a lower price per person.
