I was asked to come and take a look at Kuti’s Royal Thai Pier by a wedding planner that I’m working with. The pier is going to be one of Hampshire’s newest wedding venues and I got to take a good look around this historic waterfront property to familiarise myself with it, and whilst I was there took the opportunity to take some photographs.
The venue is right on the water, next to the cruise terminal and just across the road from the Titanic museum, close to the historic walls of Southampton and some lovely period architecture.
The pier has an amazing domed second story room which has been licenced for ceremonies and features a distinctive contemporary chandelier and a small area of glass floor. The venue is of course a restaurant as well and can seat a large number of people for both Western and Asian food.
Family photographs could be taken in the enclosed lower patio area or on the open terrace which looks out to the water – also fantastic for a drinks reception on a balmy summers day. Alternatively you could head out onto the large public area, and time relaxed portraits of the bride and groom would work around the property as well as heading over the road to some of the historic features.
Here are some of the images I took on the day. Click on one to view.
