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.

Gatsby Glam – 1920s Bridal Shoot at Hayne House

As a professional makeup artist, I have long been fascinated with the roaring 20s era for fashion, glamour and sophistication. I was eager to incorporate the perfect 1920s bridal look into my portfolio for brides dreaming of a great Gatsby-style wedding… Hayne House in Kent was my natural choice for such a shoot. The ‘Former Hunting Lodge’ at Hayne House was once home to Edward Simpson and his wife. In the 1920s they would often travel to their other house at Port Lympne where they were entertained by Charlie Chaplin. I picked the luxurious colour palette of emerald green, gold,…

Back in March we announced The Cherry Barn were hosting a Wedding Showcase in April. But alas it was not meant to be!

Bell Tent Hire – Victoria Lily Events

Glamping companies have had a very different summer to the one they imagined this year! They thought they’d be pitching up at festivals, and having teams of staff working together to erect pop-up bell tent villages for weddings… Instead they’ve been popping up, a tent at a time, in peoples gardens, for lockdown social-distancing fun. It’s proved to be popular for alternative birthdays, anniversaries etc. Small businesses have had to diversify and Sussex-based Victoria Lily Events have made the most of a tricky situation. The luxury boho glamping company covers Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Essex, London and France. Bell Tents Their…

A Relaxed Shimmery Kent Wedding

Lavinia and Chris’s Kent wedding was a relaxed celebration with plenty of good food and music. The Night Yard offered the perfect blank canvas venue and Lavinia’s amazing dress dictated the loose ‘gold’ theme. Over to bride Lavinia to tell us more… Q. What was the theme/style for your big day?
