The Boat Shed


I’m working with the owners of Wicor Marine Yacht Haven in Portchester (near Fareham), Hampshire to open a brand new wedding venue!

As well as the boat yard, they run the popular Salt Cafe, lifestyle shop, Airbnb accommodation and paddle club.

We’re busy preparing to open the large, rustic and versatile boat shed for relaxed weddings.

The boat shed offers a large, industrial-style blank canvas space. We’ll be keeping some of the nautical touches – think buoys and oars, and we can even push a boat in if the space is a little too big for your numbers (decorate it with fairy lights and flowers for a stunning prop). We think trestle tables, wild-look flowers and strings of festoon lighting is the ideal vibe for the space and location, but the décor really is down to your imagination. It’s a DIY venue but I’m on hand with my black book of contacts to offer full or partial planning, or even just on the day management. We’ll be running the bar in-house and I’m working on a preferred supplier list for caterers and other suppliers.

We’re launching on Sunday 8th March with a fantastic wedding fair/open day. Potential couples will be able to look around the boat shed, surrounding land and onsite accommodation. I’m on hand to talk through availability and ideas. We’ll be joined by local suppliers who we think work with the ethos of the venue and Margot’s Wedding.

Why don’t we meet at Salt café to discuss dates and ideas?! Contact me to book a viewing.
