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…

Styled Bridal Shoot at The Winding House, Kent

Kent-based wedding planner Natasha Spencer curated this simple, elegant bridal shoot at The Winding House. Over to Natasha to explain her inspiration behind the cool collaboration… “I’ve spent a lot of time swooning over beautiful, minimal wedding styling lately and wanted to create my own shoot.” “The minimal, industrial-style colours I took inspiration from are natural, crisp, clean and simple.” “I softened the minimal colours using neutral tones and copper.” “I wanted to keep everything paired back whilst exuding luxury, warmth and style.” Planning and Styling – www.natasha-spencer.co.uk Photography – samieleephotography.com Venue – www.thewindinghouseweddings.com Dresses – www.harpersmithbridal.co.uk Hair and Make Up…

Wedding Industry Personal Branding Event

Back in February (when I still had a brain), I hosted a personal branding networking event with my good friends at Wagner Hall in Brighton. My favourite small businesses are the ones where the owner’s personality shines through and I’m always interested to get to know the person behind the brand… which is why I do ‘supplier spotlight’ and Q&As with wedding suppliers on the blog. I want to know who they are, how they live, what inspires them. I want to know about their background, how they got started, what future plans they’ve got. Am I just plain nosey?…

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…

Top 5 Wedding Venues in Hampshire

We hand over to Hampshire-based photographer Jason Williams for today’s guest post!.. Let’s be honest, there are quite literally hundreds of wedding venues in Hampshire. Personally, I think Hampshire is one of the best places in the UK for weddings. We’re blessed with beaches, forests, urban venues, and everything in between. It can be a little bewildering when trying to find the “perfect” venue when what defines perfect for one would be an idea of hell for someone else. Therefore, to come up with a definitive list of “the best” is impossible. What I’ve tried to do here is to…

Glam Rock Shoot at Southend Barns

Today we hand over to stylists To Have & To Hire and venue, Southend Barns, to tell us all about this bold, edgy styled shoot… What else is one to do when wanting to add a little sparkle and spice to their wedding? Why Glam Rock, of course. Glam Rock is a style of rock music that started in the United Kingdom in the early 70s. Glam Rock musicians often adorned – what was classified then as ‘outrageous’ outfits, hairstyles, and makeup. Some remnants that may pop to mind are platform shoes and glitter.
