The Langstone Quays, Hampshire
Langstone Hotel is a truly glorious setting overlooking Langstone Harbour. The Langstone is a waterside wedding venue in Sussex near Portsmouth in Hampshire. The hotel offers different rooms depending on the number of guests. They can include fireworks across the water and (weather permitting) a stunning sunset.

Summer Wedding by the water at the The Langstone Quays, the waterside wedding venue in Sussex
Here is a wedding from prep to first dance of a Sam and Adam in July of 2015. Sam got ready at home with lots of little flower girls and bridesmaids. Getting ready at the house, there was lots of hilarity with her mum trying on her hat and photographing everyone in their lovely cottage garden.
Bridal Prep at the Langstone Quays Hotel
The hotel offers suites and massive hotel rooms, big enough for you and your bridesmaids. Christine, the lady on the horse further down the page, used her room to get ready in. There are lots of amazing windows and views to use to photograph the details of wedding bridal prep that you would only be able to get at this waterside wedding venue in Sussex.
Group Photos at the Langstone Quays Hotel
The Langstone has lots of areas to take group shots and couple shots. Being one of the only waterside wedding venue in Sussex, The Langstone can boast that a short walk from the hotel lies not one but two bodies of water. They are beautiful and surround by trees, a bridge and a wide open view of the harbour from one side. The other side shows a lake, which can also double as a group shots area if its too windy around the front area or you need more space for larger groups. Here are a few shots of these areas.
The Wedding Breakfast at the Langstone Quays Hotel
There are two rooms available to have your wedding breakfast. One very large one downstairs which can be made smaller or larger, dependent upon how many guests. This is carpeted and without windows which is great for when the disco starts. Here are a few photos of this room.
There is a room upstairs which is circular and overlooks the water. This has a balcony which guests invariably go out onto after dinner to drink, chat or look at the view. This is a bright and airy room, however, it does not have any handicapped access. I think I prefer this room as the view is second to none on a warm evening and the access to outside is handy for fresh air. However, its light in the Summer months and the disco lights aren’t very bright. This is still my favourite out of the rooms on offer. Here it is set up for a wedding ceremony which is still one of the rare waterside wedding venue in Sussex.

After dinner, there is invariably a sunset around the water. There is either the lake, a buttercup field nearby, the bridge, the beach, the waterside, the large trees surrounding the beach or the walk up the road with the bridge in the background. As a natural wedding photographer, I am spoilt for choice really with this venue. It’s easy to find somewhere with the light behind the couple. There is also the beautiful balcony to shoot from and the guests sometimes watch the goings on from above.
Bride on a Horse at the Langstone Quays Hotel
So, how lucky was I, when Christine said she wanted a photo on her horse, I had no idea what to expect. It was enchanting and a treat for a wedding photographer. I know they say “never work with animals”, but it was a true pleasure. Christine was an expert horsewoman and the horse was not spooked at all by all the pallava going on around him. She was so majestic on the horse it was easy to find some natural shots of her on this lovely specimen. Now, if it had rained, it may have been a different matter. Thankfully sunshine all around.
