See our Lysses Hotel Wedding Photography Gallery
The Lysses Hotel is an intimate wedding venue in Fareham with lovely garden, patio, columned entrance and impressive staircase. Since we last shot a wedding at the Lysses, they have completely re-decorated.
The atmosphere at the Lysses is very relaxed and guests naturally spill out onto the patio and into the lounge during the course of the day.
There is a large room upstairs and downstairs and it is a matter of preference as to which is used for ceremony and/or reception.
When we have been there the staff have been friendly and helpful and accommodating and the food has been gorgeous.
Regarding wedding photography location options, the garden is great for group shots with a nicely bordered lawn and steps up to the patio. There is also a fire escape that photographers can climb to shoot down on large groups.
The garden has some nice angles for portraits too. Further wedding portrait opportunities include the columned entrance, the staircase and there are also some nice locations in the garden. A few steps away from the hotel and you are on the top of the pretty and historic end of Fareham High Street which can also make a fabulous backdrop for portraits.
The front of the hotel is striking and and be a great scene-setting backdrop for wedding portraits.
Inside there are many large windows shaping light perfectly for natural light portraiture.
The Lysses Hotel is a gorgeous and intimate wedding venue situated in a pretty part of Fareham. Great staff, great food, lovely relaxed atmosphere and some lovely locations for wedding photography both inside and out.
