The Boat Shed – London Warehouse Vibes by the Sea

Blog posts have been boat shed-heavy lately… but that’s just because we’ve got so much great content at the moment! We were eagerly awaiting the professional edited photos from our recent Boat Shed open day and boy, Weddings by Tom, did NOT disappoint. At the open day we really wanted to showcase the space and demonstrate how it could look for an event. We set up the space for a photo shoot back in March with a kitsch, colourful theme and this time I wanted something a little different. I still wanted the relaxed/rustic look because, lets face it, it…

The Boat Shed Open Day – Thank You

Hello, hello! This is a very quick blog post as my son is waiting patiently for me to make a rocket with him (full time school from next week! Bring it on…) I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all the suppliers who came together to make Sunday’s open day at The Boat Shed such a success. My vision really did come to life in the space.

Garden of England Bridal Shoot at The Secret Garden

Today we hand over to Lily Jones Events to tell us all about the inspiration behind this beautiful, quintessentially British bridal shoot at The Secret Garden in Kent… Kent, also known as the Garden of England, is definitely one of the most beautiful counties to get married in. With its rolling hills, beautiful coastline, bountiful orchards and hop gardens, Kent was named ‘The Garden of England’ by King Henry VIII and has kept true to its name to this day with its iconic oast houses and, most famously, growing the strawberries for Wimbledon tennis tournament every year.  With its beautiful…

Dutch Masters-themed Bridal Shoot @ Fabrica, Brighton

This unique and dramatic styled shoot was curated by Alex Cvijovic from The Wonderous Wedding Fair. Her vision for the shoot was to juxtapose the vibrancy of Dutch Golden age paintings with vintage florals. The palette was a combination of rich sultry colours with pops of blue and gold. The Venue Fabrica in Brighton is a former Regency church in the heart of the city. It boasts impressive stained glass windows, high ceilings, and a traditional overhead balcony. Now a contemporary art gallery, the venue allows a number of exclusive ceremonies to be held every year. Alex was looking for…

The House of Love Illustration

Imagine how happy I was when Megan Metcalf AKA The House of Love Illustration contacted me at the beginning of the year and said she wanted to come and do some live drawings at my Boat Shed wedding fair. I love her work and was so touched she made the journey all the way from Margate. Above are drawings she did on the day featuring The Curated Kitchen‘s exhibition stand. I guess the inviting grazing table of different colours and textures was the ideal still life! The above drawings were also done on the day, featuring buoys within the alternative,…

The Boat Shed – Kitsch & Nautical Styled Shoot

Way back in March, before the world ground to a halt, I organised a styled bridal shoot at The Boat Shed. I wanted an opportunity to get some awesome photos of the venue and I knew I could count of some of my fantastic contacts to collaborate… I wanted a pro on board when it came to the ‘look’ so I asked Sally Gallis, Events by Design if she’d like to lead on the concept and styling… and boy, did she do a good job! The theme was kitsch/nautical. The idea was fun, tongue-in-cheek, saucy sailor-boy kinda vibes. As you…

Country/Frida Kahlo Inspired Bridal Shoot

We’re in love with these images submitted by Toni of Cuttlebone Photography. The flowers are such statement pieces (especially the Frida Kahlo inspired crown!) and the white boots give a cool country vibe. Over to Toni to explain a bit more about the shoot… Brandon (Flowers 4) and I had worked together a few times on shoots and have been friends for years. For this styled session we wanted to create a country, rock and roll wedding with a side of Frida. A statement headpiece rather than the dainty norm and stunning bouquets filled with beautiful scented blooms and pampas…
