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….

Supplier Spotlight – Patrick’s Barn

Patrick’s Barn is in Chiddinglye, West Hoathly, West Sussex. It’s a rustic and quirky wedding venue set in 360 acres of farm, parkland, formal gardens and woodland. They have the space to accommodate most wedding day craziness – for example glamping, fairground rides, treasure hunts, bouncy castles, bucking broncos and welly wanging… they even have a Druid wedding booked for next year! The ‘Byre’ behind the barn is a huge covered area previously used to house the cows in winter (and still has the sheep in for lambing). It’s a versatile space seating 120 or a space for games, hay…

Styled Shoot – The Boat Shed @ Salt

If you haven’t heard about my new venue project you must have been living under a rock for the last couple of weeks… but in case you haven’t, here’s the news. I’m working with the owners of Wicor Marine in Portchester, Hampshire to open their boat shed for weddings. I’ve been shouting about The Boat Shed project from the rooftops on Facebook and Instagram and have announced we’re launching with a wedding fair on 8th March 2020. And holy moly has there been a lot of interest in the fair! A week after announcing the date we’re two thirds full….

The Boat Shed @ Salt – Featured Venue

Have you ever been to Salt Café in Portchester, Hampshire? It’s a destination café, the kind of place you hear about on the grapevine, pay them a visit, become a regular, tell your friends, and so it goes on. It’s not somewhere you pass by, it’s down a remote lane… in the yacht haven of a boat yard. So, what’s so special about it? You can sit out on the jetty watching the marine life, enjoying delicious coffee with your breakfast/brunch/lunch. It’s the little touches that make it so special – the basket of hot water bottles if the day…

Our Outdoor Wedding Fair & Live Styled Shoot

Hola! Our outdoor wedding fair with Kissing Gate Events is done and dusted… and it didn’t rain, hurrah! I’ve spent the last two days in paddling pools with my son trying not to melt. He’s gone back to nursery today so I can finally catch up with myself and conduct a full event de-brief. The fair (Margot’s Outdoor Extravaganza) was a collaborative project between Margot’s Wedding and Kissing Gate Events. An opportunity to showcase everything Kissing Gate has to offer; beautiful land venues, traditional pole marquee, bell tents, delicious food, horse box bar and horse box toilets. My job was…

COMPETITION – WIN Free Entry to Margot’s Outdoor Extravaganza!!

Hey hey hey! It’s flippin’ July already! Which means Margot’s Outdoor Extravaganza is happening in less than three weeks (gulp)… The event is being held on Sunday 21st July at Thornton Woods in Titchfield, Hampshire – a very special secluded spot that’s available to hire for weddings via Kissing Gate Events. I was there on Saturday to help out at a wedding (which will soon feature on the blog). I’d been to the site a couple of times but it made all the difference seeing it in all its glory. The tables were set, the bar was open, the Pimms…

The Worthing Dome Wedding Open Day 

This is a tricky one… my friends at The Worthing Dome are hosting an open day on the same day as my Outdoor Extravaganza in Hampshire. Why not mark it out in your diary as one big wedding weekender and go to both events? Hell, you could even go dress shopping on the Saturday and binge-watch wedding movies on the Saturday night? While my fair in Hampshire is a festival-style extravaganza with lots of suppliers exhibiting, The Worthing Dome are simply setting up their beautiful rooms, for a ceremony and reception, and their events team will be on hand to…
