Southampton Wedding

Southampton is a large city and port on the south coast of England. It manages to combine the vibrancy of a lively city centre with beautiful countryside and seascapes. For example, nearby are the Isle of Wight and the New Forest. It is sometimes best known overseas as the departure point for the doomed voyage of the Titanic, and it is still home to many cruise ships. Its strategic importance meant that it was badly bombed during the war, so little of the original city centre remains. This has not put off the many students who come to Southampton for the nightlife and, of course, the quality of the education. Many stay and get married in the city, which has no shortage of good venues surrounding it.
