Sarah & Tom’s Relaxed Waterside Wedding in Itchenor, West Sussex

Sarah & Tom’s wedding plans were scuppered by Covid so by the time they had their reception it was all about friends and family gathering, and the P.A.R.T.Y. Jason Williams has captured the love and laughter perfectly in his signature photography style. Q. What was the theme/style for your big day? A. We knew we wanted a venue that was by the sea/water, as we both love spending our spare time at the beach or in the sea. We also wanted a fairly laid-back wedding, and really wanted a party to celebrate with our friends and family. There wasn’t a…

Hen/Stag Yachting Package from Raggy&Boo

How does a weekend aboard a yacht sailing around the Solent sound to you? Pretty Kardashian-esque if you ask me (I’ve watch A LOT of Below Deck). You and six others will be treated to fizz and goodies on arrival while you settle into your new (nautical) digs in Lymington. Your first night will be in the harbour so you can enjoy the pubs, bars and restaurants in the buzzing Georgian town. Just make sure you make it back to the boat before it sets sail the following day! The next morning you’ll be off on your adventure in the…

Q&A With Becky from Waves Weddings & Events

August 27, 2021 | Coastal Wedding, Kent Wedding

Q. Hi Becky! We understand you specialise in wedding planning from Margate, Kent to Mobay, Jamaica… that’s quite a combo. Can you tell us a bit about your background and how Waves came about please? A. Yes, it is quite a combo indeed and people often wonder how it all came about, to be honest I have worked in events for years so it’s always been a passion of mine. In 2017 I went travelling and spent some time living and working at an amazing retreat in Jamaica and I literally just fell in love with it there. I noticed…

Dream Wedding Venue – The Boat Shed

Sometimes I think The Boat Shed project was all a dream. Did I dream about a unique waterside space filled with trestle tables, festoon lighting and flowers? It seemed so real; the taste of cold fizz, the servings of street food, the sound of the band rehearsing… Was my whole career a figment of my imagination? I think I might be going slightly mad. Is anyone else going slightly mad?   As it stands our first wedding is the end of June next year. It seems soooo long away but BRING IT ON. I’ve had my hair cut now, and…

Hampshire Wedding Venue – The Boat Shed

Ok so we’re nearly into June and this summer is looking VERY different to the summer I imagined. I think it goes without saying that everyone’s summer/year is looking very different to the one they imagined. My heart goes out to everyone who has had to postpone/cancel their wedding. The thing about the Covid-19 outbreak is how everyone’s been affected in their own way and I just hope those planning 2020 weddings have managed to put a suitable plan in place. We don’t know yet how it’s all going to affect the wedding industry in the long term but it’s…

(Also, Bride Lucy works for the NHS so lets clap extra loudly for her tonight) Q. What was the theme/style for your big day? A. 1920s/Art Deco/vintage. As the venue has beautiful Art Deco-style windows and it was 2020 it was an easy…

The Boat Shed @ Salt – 8 Ideas to Inspire

Margot’s Wedding are managing weddings at brand new Hampshire wedding venue, The Boat Shed @ Salt. Our exciting launch wedding fair is taking place on 8th March where they’ll be plenty of unique inspiration from talented local suppliers. In the meantime here are some ideas we love… Pie & Mash A couple who recently viewed for an October wedding wanted pie and mash from local independent record store/pie restaurant Pie & Vinyl. We thought that was an ace idea for cosy autumn vibes. They even do cana-pies (see what they did there?) as mini morsels to accompany reception drinks. We…

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…
