Jack & Dario’s wedding plans were scuppered by Covid but luckily they only had to postpone their reception for a month. They tell us all about their relaxed, fun day… Q. What was the theme/style for your big day? A. We wanted something that looked rustic yet polished.

March 11, 2022 | Hampshire Wedding, Wedding cake

Last winter Becky from Hartt Cakes had no bookings due to Covid and had to shield, so she turned her attention to her client’s journey. Over to Becky to talk us through the process… I looked at the journey from enquiry to delivery of the cake.

I found an automated CRM software I now swear by called ‘Dubsado’. It took me over 20 hours to learn the…

The clashes seemed fearless and Vicki wanted to see how combinations from these eras could work in the wedding industry. It was an experiment to move away from typical wedding colours. These colour combos provide inspiration to couples who want…

How Covid helped this Hampshire caterer bloom…

Martha Hollis was created in 2018 when chef Rachel Sheppard bought a vintage caravan named Martha.
