See our Solent Hotel Wedding Photography Gallery
The Solent Hotel is a large five star hotel with some great interiors for photography and a choice of three different wedding suites suitable for small, medium and large weddings.
In the foyer there is a wood panelled fire place area, wood banistered staircase and chandelier. Great opportunities there for group shots as well as portraits making this a top winter wedding venue.
The entrance is a covered walk way which usually has a red carpet laid out for weddings. The red carpet goes all the way to the end over the wood beamed gable roof where the wedding cars can stop for arrivals.
The entrance is a great place for arrivals photographs with the geometry of the roof beams, low walls and red carpet. The shelter that it provides makes such photographs possible even in bad weather.
There is a pleasant and sizeable covered patio at the back of the hotel and a small garden.
The large and medium sized wedding suites also have their own bars and ante rooms where guests can mingle and relax whilst the main room is being turned round.
We have always found the staff to be resourceful and helpful and the resident DJ comes recommended.
The Solent Hotel is a large wedding venue with great interiors, easy access to the M27 junction 9 and plenty of parking. We rate The Solent Hotel as being a Top Winter Wedding Venue.
