Civil Ceremonies in Southampton

These days, there are plenty of people who choose to have a civil ceremony instead of a marriage. As a legal alternative to marriage, it offers people the opportunity to celebrate their love and recognise their partnership in law without the religious and traditional elements associated with marriage.

For those looking to find the best civil wedding venues in Southampton, you’ll be happy to hear that Holiday Inn Southampton is legally licensed as a venue. Just like our weddings, civil partnerships are an important part of what we do – and we’re just as dedicated to making them memorable and successful.


Civil weddings in Southampton

A civil partnership is an alternative to marriage that allows same-sex couples the same rights as married couples and has been available in the UK since 2004. Despite full marriage equality being bestowed to all couples regardless of gender in 2013 – many same-sex couples still decide to hold a civil ceremony instead of the more religious, traditional marriage.

Opposite-sex couples can’t currently have civil partnerships. We can however host non-religious wedding ceremonies here at the Holiday Inn as part of our wedding packages.

But whether you’re looking for a wedding or a civil ceremony, Southampton is a fantastic place to celebrate your partnership. As a picturesque port town on the South coast of England, it’s a gorgeous backdrop against which to commemorate your special day. And just moments away from the station, sitting right on the banks of the River Test, Holiday Inn Southampton is the best choice for civil wedding venues in Southampton.


Our civil ceremony packages

With ceremony room hire available for fantastic prices from just £295.00, we’ve certainly got everything you need to start off your partnership right. We have three suites available, all of which are specially tailored to civil ceremonies: the Avon Suite, Hamble Suite and the Hampshire Suite.

Each of our suites has enough space for 60, 70 or 150 guests respectively, so you’ll be able to invite friends, relatives and loved ones from far and wide to help celebrate this special day.

Just as in our wedding packages, the happy couple will be treated to a red-carpet arrival, a cake stand and full ceremonial treatment, discounted accommodation rates for all your guests, and plenty more as part of the service.


Make an evening of it

One of the best things about our weddings and civil ceremonies is that the happy couple will be treated to a night in of our rooms and suites after the reception as part of the package. That means you’ll have access to our restaurant, all-day dining as well as an award-winning breakfast the next day. Why not enjoy a spell in the Spirit Health Club and get your partnership off to a relaxing start?
