The Concorde Club in Eastleigh near Southampton has three different wedding room options for different wedding requirements. Extra to that they have a wonderful marquee in their tranquil garden. We have only have experience of the marquee wedding option, so that’s the only one we’ll be reviewing here.
It is a lovely marquee set in a large tree-lined grass garden with outside chairs and tables. Access to the marquee is over the grass so it might not be ideal if there had be enough rain recently to make the grass muddy but for most of the Summer months it shouldn’t be a problem.
Once inside the marquee it is spacious and beautifully decorated with ceiling and side wall drapes. The whole of one side of the marquee is “windowed” out onto the garden and makes for a very open light and airy feel.
At one end of the marquee is where the caterers serve from and at the other end is the dance floor for the evening and round tables for the guests in between. There is plenty of room inside the marquee for a DJ, and a band, and a photo booth, and a chocolate fountain, and a sweetie table...whatever you can think of.
The staff are lovely and very accommodating. We’ve been at a wedding there where the staff have been happy for the wedding cars to come onto the grass for photographs and later in the evening they’ve been happy for a fire-breathing act to do their thing on the grass in front of the guests.
The ambience of the venue is very relaxed an absolutely perfect choice for a Summer wedding if you are interested in a marquee. If not, then perhaps drop them a line and get details of their three “inside the venue” options.
The Concorde Club has very easy access to the M27 and plenty of parking.
