If you are in the process of planning a wedding you are in luck. You have just stumbled across a specialist group known as Hampshire Wedding Experts.
Currently we have a small, yet exceptional group of very talented people offering the very best to potential couples planning their wedding.
It all started back in July 2013 when I received a telephone call from award winning and highly regarded Hampshire photographer, Simon John FBIPP FSWPP. He felt with so many rogue traders popping up everywhere, it was time to bring quality back to the Hampshire wedding scene. With over 30 years experience photographing weddings, Simon brought together some of the best suppliers he had worked with and so Hampshire Wedding Experts was born. The photographer sees every aspect of the wedding day, so who better to form the group!
We now meet regularly at the gorgeous Old House Hotel in Wickham. The hotel is part of our group; a perfect setting for an intimate wedding with fabulous food (believe me I have eaten it), an extensive wine list and beautiful rooms.
Simon John FBIPP FMP, photographer and founder of Hampshire Wedding Experts, has been a professional all his working life with over thirty years experience. He has handled somewhere in the region of 1500 weddings to date. However he still strives for that perfect image every time he picks up the camera. He has won UK wedding photographer of the year, and holds the UK’s highest Accolade of Fellowship. He teaches other professionals and is an author on the subject of wedding photography
Nicki Hill bespoke wedding dresses are in my opinion second to none. Her dresses flow, beautifully balanced with her natural feel of elegance. Timeless, but very “now” at the same time. Nicky can also supply other leading designers and a fabulous range for Mother of the bride.
Jeannette Rawson, This Designer Florist has amassed the highest awards for artistic floristry in the UK and USA. She is a warm approachable lady with great taste. Jeannette is simply passionate about what she can create for her wedding clients, a rare talent indeed.
Elizabeth Dayment has worked at London Fashion week and for an impressive list of celebrities. Liz brings out the natural beauty in everyone she works with. Having a great make up artist is so important to a photographer as this helps controlling the skin softness when lighting for beauty.. Liz achieves this with relaxed ease.
Charlotte Cornelius is just one of the most original jewelers I have ever seen. With a background in art and design she brings to the group originality. When the perfect engagement ring or wedding band is what you are looking for make sure to look at Charlotte’s impressive and original ideas.
Lily Anna Rose wedding stationary is that touch of style every couple so desperately look for to set their day off on the right track. Claire’s enthusiasm is contagious and whether you are looking for vintage, romantic or a modern feel for your day, make sure you speak to this talented lady first.
Thomas Cook A name synonymous with the amazing honeymoon locations available today. Let Mary at Thomas Cook in Fareham tailor the perfect romantic hideaway. A sun drenched terrace, beautiful white sandy beaches, or romantic candlelit dinners are all waiting for you.
Diamond Films By Roger Lowe are visually exciting and beautiful at the same time. Roger is a multi award winning cameraman with an eye for detail.
Simon James Menswear Simon has won many regional and National awards for best Groomswear retailer. Come on chaps its not just about the girls, you deserve to look your best too. Hiring Simon’s wealth of knowledge can really make you look good in a suit!
Funkybuddha Ultimate party band… Absolutely !! Simon our photographer says that every wedding he has been to where these guys play, the dance floor is packed immediately.. Make sure your guests are entertained and no better way than a Funkybuddha night out!
Hampshire executive travel Last but by no means least this is the chauffeur service that looks the part. How many times do we see badly dressed taxi drivers in tatty cars? Not with this firm. Arrive in style and choose from their selection of Vintage, classic and modern cars.
