Boat Shed Bride-to-Be!

Today we hear from popular singer Miss Amy Baker as she and fiance Sam prepare to tie the knot at The Boat Shed… over to Amy: Sam surprised me with a trip to London. I had no idea where we were going but when he took a rucksack out for the day (he hates carrying anything) and then suggested a visit to a park (rather than a pub) I knew something was up! We took a leisurely walk around Regents Park and then hired a pedalo. Sam climbed onto the back of the boat and wobbled down onto one knee….

The vibrant orange and recognisable shape looks quirky and tropical against the muted shade of blue, and the flashes of purple work well. I also love the botanic print…
