Hey there, beautiful! May I interrupt your Tuesday with something all kinds of brilliant which could quite easily save you a bundle of time and energy planning your best day ever? If you’re in Hampshire (or Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Surrey or Sussex) you will ESPECIALLY love this. The Hampshire Wedding Club is a place you can go, online and in person, to find all your wedding suppliers and get everything you need to plan your big day. It’s new, it’s hugely exciting for the wedding industry and I’m excited to see more from these lovely people! I’m even more thrilled to announce that The Hampshire Wedding Club is joining English Wedding as our newest sponsor – so we’ll be sharing much more from them in the coming months! I’ll let lovely Tasha, who is the founder of the Hampshire Wedding Club, tell you all about it.
“At the Hampshire Wedding Club we apply 10 years of industry experience to a new, exciting concept. We are very proud to support unique, extraordinary wedding specialists across our county.
Our mission is to help couples plan their perfect wedding. Their perfect day, right here, in our glorious county of Hampshire. Using only the very best local suppliers. Opting to take a bold, progressive approach supporting only Hampshire suppliers, is a new “thing” in the wedding industry. It is the perfect way to invest in a local creative wedding industry. An industry deserving of a way to promote itself in a cohesive, and exciting way, ensuring it retains its integrity, individuality and balance.
This approach ensures our advice and referrals lead to you being supported by;
- Suppliers with personal, valuable and local knowledge and commitment
- Suppliers and artisan creatives who already have a wonderful regional network around them. Ensuring their services flow seamlessly and professionally on your special day.
- Suppliers with an invaluable understanding of their local wedding industry landscape
- Suppliers who when they work together are able to relax, and instinctively utilise each other’s strengths. This allows them to do their very best work and enjoy your day alongside you
Couples choose Hampshire for their weddings because of the endless choice of backdrops, from picturesque market towns like Stockbridge to the breathtaking countryside of the New Forest and the opulent historic houses reminiscent of an entirely different era.
When you are planning your wedding, we know finding unique, reliable, local and talented suppliers is key, and sometimes a challenge.
So, whether you are creating a lavish country estate occasion or you dream of an intimate chic urban celebration or picture a devastatingly elegant barefoot bohemian beach ceremony, our online community offers inspiration on every page.
We hope your Pinterest boards are ready, and if they aren’t we can help with that too!
