Information For Mercure Southampton Centre Dolphin Hotel

The Mercure Southampton Dolphin Hotel is in the city centre of Southampton’s old town where it has stood for over 600 years.

This hotel was first established in 1550 and has a fascinating history. Shakespeare and company performed plays in the inn yard, Thomas Hardy refers to it in Trumpet Major and Jane Austen danced here at Assembly Balls at two stages in her life (arranged by Florence Nightingale’s mother). The hotel was rebuilt in 1775 to accommodate spa visitors and it supposedly has the biggest bay windows in England; Thackeray sat in one of them to write Pendennis.

The Mercure Southampton Centre Dolphin Hotel can host wedding ceremonies and wedding breakfasts for up to 100 guests, or 120 for an evening reception, and can tailor a wedding ceremony and reception to your individual requirements. Use of a red carpet on arrival; hire of a cake stand and cake knife; your table plan, place cards and menus; overnight accommodation for the bride and groom and special accommodation rates for your guests.

Top Wedding Tips

If you are struggling with who to place on the top table, then why not consider a sweetheart table? This is where the happy couple sit alone on a table just for themselves.

Make your centre pieces multipurpose! As you won’t need them until the wedding breakfast, why not use them as décor for ceremony first and as a way to line the isle.

When your guests RSVP to your invites, ask them to let you know their favourite song. Compile a list from the replies and pass along to the DJ for them to play during the evening reception.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for being so amazing on Saturday. We couldn't have asked for any more and the day was faultless, everything was how I imagined it and more and I couldn't get over how beautiful the rooms was. I have had so many people praise you all and the waiters too. Nothing was too much trouble. I'd like to also say thank you to Dan as he was brilliant.
