Full Description
With fabulous views of Portsmouth harbour and a fantastic view of the Spinnaker tower, Arty’s at Clarence Marina is not your average wedding venue. The function room can hold an intimate wedding of up to 50 seated and 80 standing/partying. In the summer months Arty’s boasts a huge outside space with stunning views of the aircraft carriers in dock and the historic dockyard. If your wedding party exceeds those numbers there is the potential to book the whole venue where we can accommodate up to 80 seated and 150 partying. The quirky decor at Arty’s really sets us apart from the traditional venue and we pride ourselves on being fully flexible for your big day. We have a whole host of wedding decorations and can custom create your theme in house, we love a challenge! We can also help you organise the wedding favours. Our fully stocked in house bar offers a comprehensive wine list, a great cocktail list, draught lagers and ciders and if Aunty Mavis only drinks Babycham, don’t worry we will do our best to make her day! When it comes to the food side of your big day we can cater to all your needs be it, 3 course wedding breakfast, buffets, hotdogs and chips or however you want to feed your guests, we can help and guide you through. We can even provide an alternative wedding cake made of cheese and decorated to your style. We have a fabulous sound system and your DJ can just turn up and plug into our system or you can simply email us a Spotify playlist. We are an unusual venue, ideal for a laid back and modern approach to tying the knot, with a personable and friendly team of helpers to make your perfect day happen.

Being part of your big day makes my job worthwhile
Since our expansion in 2020 and opening up our beautiful function area I am absolutely loving hosting weddings. As a small independent venue, it warms my heart that our couples have all thoroughly enjoyed their special day. Being a part of it makes my job so worthwhile. I guarantee maximum effort from my whole team to provide the day of their dreams.

I couldn't have wished for a better evening...
We had our wedding party at Artys in October 2022, from our very first enquiry through to the event taking place both Julie and Amy were absolutely fantastic. They put my mind at rest that I would not need to worry about anything on the night which is exactly what I needed being as I was a nervous bride! They both listened to all of my requirements and on the night the place looked absolutely fantastic. I couldn’t have wished for a better evening and cannot thank them enough for all they did for me

Best Place to have your Wedding Reception
As soon as we had decided to get married we knew that we would want our reception at Arty’s and in fact even moved our wedding date to accommodate that. From day one Amy couldn’t have been more helpful, she really did make the process as easy as she could and was really informative and kept in touch with every step. Planning any type of wedding is stressful and with Amy and Arty’s it really did take a lot of that stress off. We also decided to let them decorate for us as well so I didn’t even have to worry about that. Also loved the fact that as we didn ‘t want a DJ that we used our own playlist from spotify and Arty’s used that so it made it very personal to us. On the day it really couldn’t have gone any better, as soon as we arrived there the venue was lovely and decorated beautifully. We had decided to do a free bar and they even put a little chalk board up of what our guest could have on the bar tab and put my fave cocktail on there as well which was a lovely touch. Amy and Julie ran the bar for us that day and they were the best and very good with all our guests, even if a few had a few too many drinks. The food is still talked about now and everyone has told me how good the food was and best of all for us it didn’t cost the earth and also Arty’s were really good at accommodating any changes we wanted to the menu and for a few guests with food allergies. Overall I can’t recommend it enough that you NEED to have your wedding here as these guys are hard working and make the day much smoother and easier for you. I was so so happy with the whole booking from start to finish and I can’t thank Arty’s enough for all they did for us.

The Perfect Venue
We were lucky enough to be guests at a recent wedding party at Arty’s in Clarence Marina, a gorgeous venue right on the waterside. The event was really well organised and nothing was too much for the very attentive staff, who all went out of their way to make us feel very welcome. The room was decorated beautifully, including an eye-catching balloon hoop created in the wedding colours by the venue owners. The food was a feast for both the eyes and the belly and there was a well-stocked bar selling at reasonable prices. All in all, very professional and impressive. We will be returning here for a meal in their restaurant in the very near future.
