    The perfect wedding location!

    WOW! Where do I even begin to describe how amazing our experience of getting married at Southampton Harbour was!

    Georgina was incredibly understanding to our situation as we wanted to get married quickly due to a personal family matter. From the start of the 6 week planning process Georgina made everything so much easier! Her quick detailed responses made the process feel so smooth! Nothing ever felt too much trouble and I could tell that she really cared about creating the best day for my husband and I as well as our family & friends.

    The Wedding day itself exceeded all expectations. Throughout the day there were so many small details that I hadn't expected that enhanced our day! The value for money was amazing! I honestly would do our special day here over and over again! :)

    Thank you Southampton Habour Hotel Team! You are the best!

    Amazing wedding at the Southampton Harbour Hotel

    Big thank you to the Southampton Harbour Hotel, who hosted our wonderful wedding in January 2022. We were delighted that the hotel could cater for the intimate wedding we wanted (25 guests), and thanks to Georgina's help we were easily able to tailor the event exactly how we wanted it. Georgina was incredibly helpful, communicative and understood that we wanted our special day to be relaxed, informal and intimate. Georgina, Cristophe and the team ensured everything went smoothly on the day, the room looked amazing and even on a rainy winter day the views from the hotel are spectacular! We were able to select meal choices from a list of many delicious options, and all of our guests were very complimentary about the quality of food, and we were also easily able to tailor for some vegan / vegetarian guests. The majority of our guests stayed at the hotel for the weekend, and had a lovely stay - particular compliments from our friends and family on the gin and sherry in the rooms! We also made good use of the spa, with the most amazing massage the evening before our wedding from Sophie. All of this was organised in just over a month - we honestly couldn't have wished for a more perfect day!

    Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa's reply:

    Hi Alex,
    I cannot thank you enough for such a lovely review and I am delighted to hear how much you enjoyed the day and your stay overall! Every wedding is so unique to the couple and it was wonderful to be a part of your more intimate day. Thank you for allowing me to help with your plans.
    We would love to welcome you back in the near future so do get back in touch!
    Best wishes for all the happiness in the future,
    Georgina

    An amazing wedding!

    We cannot thank Georgina, and the entire operational team enough for our fantastic day! Ever since Georgina joined the team this summer, our wedding planning has been as smooth as possible during a pandemic. The day itself went without any problems, and the staff were great in assisting with specific preferences and fixing any small issues that arose throughout the day. The food was exceptional, and even the menu tasting was a lovely night for my husband and I. Would completely recommend this venue, especially with Georgina’s expert help!

    Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to share your testimony and for your kind words, Emma. We are delighted to hear how the planning and your big day itself was so successful. It was such a pleasure to be a part of your wedding day and your personal touches in the centrepieces really showcased you both as a couple (and the car was fantastic!) We wish you every happiness for the future and hope to see you back at the hotel soon!

    Wedding party

    The venue is absolutely lovely. We wanted it as soon as we saw it for our wedding ceremony and after-party. The planning with the host was made easy - thanks to the great venue team. We will definitely want to come back.

    Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa's reply:

    Hi Lucy, thank you so much for your testimony. We are delighted that you chose Southampton Harbour Hotel as your wedding venue. It was lovely to be a part of both days - you deserved to where your dress twice and have the double celebrations after this year! We cannot wait to welcome you back to the hotel soon! We wish you all the best for now.

    Perfect wedding

    Having our wedding at the harbour hotel was the best experience. Georgina and her team were delightful and nothing was too much trouble. Everyone was so kind, approachable and seemed to genuinely care about our day and making it special for us. Georgina especially went above and beyond for us and we are very grateful to her. We would not hesitate to recommend Georgina and her team, and that people consider getting married at the harbour hotel. It’s a stunning setting and one that my guests can’t stop talking about. The food was delicious , atmosphere electric and the whole feel of the place was just amazing. Thank you!

    Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa's reply:

    Hello lovely Hester! Thank you so much for your wonderful and kind words, and for sharing these with us - we have loved looking through your photographs of the day too! We are over the moon that you had such a wonderful wedding day and wish you all the very best for the future. We hope you will visit us again soon!
    Thank you for allowing me to share in your special day.
    Best Wishes,
    Georgina

    Harbour Hotel - Southampton

    Georgina Place took our initial enquiry and was professional throughout. Although ours was a fairly uncomplicated Wedding, she pulled everything together exactly as per our requests. Our Suite was lovely and the food throughout the weekend was gorgeous. I would highly recommend this venue with no complaints at all.

    Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa's reply:

    Simon, it was honestly my pleasure to help plan your special day and thank you so much for your kind words. However grand or intimate, each wedding is as special and unique to each couple as the next and I am just thrilled that you had such a wonderful weekend. We would be delighted to welcome you back!

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help and prep leading up to and on the day of the wedding  Dealing with yourself has been a huge pleasure and I couldn’t fault a single thing, you were super responsive, helpful and accommodating to all of our needs and quirks! All done with a smile even with the tight deadline we had.
