Weddings on The Lightship

The Lightship at Haslar Marina is a hidden gem when it comes to wedding venues. Create an occasion that’s one-of-a-kind in a location that’s truly unique. 

Set on the waters of the Solent, The Lightship is a venue like no other. Distinctive, impressive, and atmospheric, it’s the ideal backdrop to a day you’ll remember forever.

A unique location

Located on the Western side of Portsmouth Harbour, The Lightship is easily accessible by both land and water via Haslar Marina. 

This iconic floating venue is set against the backdrop of Old Portsmouth and Gunwharf Quays' Spinnaker Tower. It's the perfect place for an incredible day and some truly beautiful photo opportunities. 

Tailored to you

Set across two decks, The Lightship offers a versatile space that can be styled to your needs. Whether you prefer the indoors or open air, you'll find a range of ceremony spaces to choose from. 

With a capacity of up to 80 (which can be increased for your reception), hire the mid-deck inside and out, or add the top deck to reserve the entire ship exclusively for your use.

Incredible food & drink

Locally sourced produce prepared with care is at the heart of what we do here at The Lightship. 

Whether you want a formal seated dinner, or a menu designed for relaxed mingling our team will work to your tastes and budget, curating a menu that feels just right. 

All the extras

We love a good party, and we know what works well in our impressive surroundings. We'll help you plan every detail of your special day, ensuring a seamless and stress-free experience. 

From vendor recommendations, advice on flowers and linens, or organising an arrival by boat, we'll be there to ensure your day is as special as it gets. 

Great for guests
