Earthy Outdoor Weddings at Chiddinglye

Today we hear from Becky Cook who runs The Garden Chef and Patrick’s Barn at Chiddinglye in Sussex. She tells us what they wanted to portray from this earthy natural shoot, and how special Happy Valley is if you want to make nature a big part of your day (and I for one would really love to hug one of those amazing ancient trees!) Over to Becky… We really love smaller weddings, weddings that reflect the couple and the things that are important to them. We relish helping our couples on an individual basis and building their perfect days, working…

My Trip to Wasing Park

June 24, 2021 | Berkshire Wedding, Wedding Venue

I must be doing something right because the good people of Wasing Park in Berkshire invited me to their recent press event. What with Covid shenanigans it had to be postponed but it finally happened last weekend… and what a treat it was. Wasing Park is an estate steeped in family history, that dates back to 1759. The fact you pass through grazing cattle and vast land between entering the grounds and arriving in the car park, gives you an idea of the size of the estate! On arrival we were greeted on the terrace with drinks and a light,…

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…

Pops of Pink @ The Giraffe Shed

The force that is Sally Gallis, stylist and planner of Luna & the Lane, has recently been involved with two styled shoots at The Giraffe Shed. Both had pink elements so I wanted to combine them into an inspirational post to show ideas for pink styling details. The super-fun, throw-all-the-pink-at-it, bubble gum pink shoot, complete with disco balls and power florals was named I Believe in Pink. The bold, edgy styling elements formed the subject for a photographers workshop at the venue. As much pink as you can throw a stick at. The shoot with more muted, contemporary elements was…

Q&A with Carole from Duncton Mill & The Naked Food Company

Q. As we know it’s not been a normal year. How are you coping with everything? What’s this year been like for you? A. It became apparent very early on that things were going to be incredibly different this year. I knew it was going to be a rollercoaster for me but the worst thing was that my clients were really going to suffer. I decided immediately that I would do everything I could to make postponing their dream days as quick and painless as possible. I started by rolling over all of my catering and venue bookings and deposits…

The Cherry Barn Wedding Showcase THIS SUNDAY

Back in March we announced The Cherry Barn were hosting a Wedding Showcase in April. But alas it was not meant to be! After all their hard work and planning they had to cancel because of lockdown (we have also had to cancel events so we totally understand their pain). What a different summer they must have lived through at the barn this year. Eerie silence in place of Champagne corks popping, music, laughter… We are pleased to announce they’re going ahead with their rescheduled date this Sunday (4th October) with all the necessary Covid restrictions in place; a one…

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. It looked incredible; the festoon lighting, the neon, the giant light up PARTY letters, the bar, flowers, furniture, tableware… the cake! The music. It was a total dream. I’ll be…
