Top 5 Wedding Venues in Hampshire

We hand over to Hampshire-based photographer Jason Williams for today’s guest post!.. Let’s be honest, there are quite literally hundreds of wedding venues in Hampshire. Personally, I think Hampshire is one of the best places in the UK for weddings. We’re blessed with beaches, forests, urban venues, and everything in between. It can be a little bewildering when trying to find the “perfect” venue when what defines perfect for one would be an idea of hell for someone else. Therefore, to come up with a definitive list of “the best” is impossible. What I’ve tried to do here is to…

The Notebook Styled Shoot @ Gins Barn

At the moment, with everything I’m doing with The Boat Shed, I’m drawn to anything coastal and nautical… so when Tasha Mae contacted me with this styled shoot I jumped at the chance to feature it. I just love the arty, elegant interior of Gins Barn. It’s so inviting with its high beamed ceilings, muted colour palate and faded grandeur. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the amazing flowers with the oars (I think we’ll be borrowing that idea for The Boat Shed!) and can we take a minute to appreciate the chickens who put in an appearance please? It’s always really…
