Wedding Fair Weekend In Hampshire!

I think this weekend is Wedding Fair Weekend! As I’ve already posted we are planning to be at two events on Sunday and now there’s a third one we would have loved to attend.

For Wedding Fair Weekend Ce, my wonderful wife, will be at Ampfield Golf Club while I’ll be at Rhinefield House and now we find out that The Port House at Port Solent is also holding a showcase and we were invited to attend that one too as a recommend supplier. Oh, to be in three places at once!

These three very different venues all offer unique options when it comes to weddings and I’d recommend them all.

The Port House can cater for up to 300 people - this was their Christmas Party marquee last year

The Port House
The Port House is a modern cafe, bar and restaurant located at the water’s edge with views over the marina. It’s part of Vanilla Catering and the food is amazing! With its beautifully refurbished interior, bright modern bar, and extensive outside patio, it provides a flexible wedding venue whatever the season or weather. They are licensed to hold cicil ceremonies and can accommodate guest numbers up to 160 for formal dining and with the addition of a marquee attached to the building up to 300 people!

Once again this year I’m booked to provide the entertainment at The Port House Christmas Party nights, so if you haven’t got your celebration booked yet they are well worth a look – as I say, they can cater for up to 300 people and there are also “mixed night” spaces still available if you just want to book for a small group (CLICK HERE). Enquiries should be addressed to sally@vanillacatering.co.uk or phone 01489 589 275 – tell her I sent you.

The Port House wedding showcase on Sunday is between 11am and 3pm the address is The Port House, Marina Keep, Portsmouth PO6 4TH

Cago Cottage

Cago 1

A few months ago I had the pleasure of meeting Sam from Cago Cottage in Sway, Marie from Isabella Weddings introduced us at the Finest Marquee Hire open day. Since then I’ve visited the Cottage a few times and it really is a lovely place ~ and it’s available for wedding bookings with a really unique twist.

Cago Cottage is a beautiful 300 year old thatched cottage near Sway in the heart of the New Forest with 4 double bedrooms and is set in 2 acres of land. Basically this can become a blank canvas for you to create a truly unique, bespoke wedding day. Here’s the entry for Cago on the Hitched wedding site

A 300 year old cob wall thatched cottage with light oak exposed beams everywhere. Situated right next to the New forest, a beautiful old place (with full mod cons) which provides so much peace but at the same time offers so much fun for all to have – with the many sporting facilities in the vast grounds. Have the wedding day you truly wish for in a unique venue that is all yours, not just for the day but for the whole week of your wedding.

The cottage is without close neighbours so evening party music is not a problem. There is ample space for large marquees with up to 150 guests for a sit down meal, with lots of other facilities to have fun including boule / floodlit tennis / 5-a-side football pitch / snooker room and a massive tree house for kids to explore…! The cottage has 4 double bedrooms with 3 bathrooms, a large kitchen with a huge pine table that can sit 10/12 people. One bedroom and large family bathroom is downstairs (useful for an elderly couple…). Large BBQ outside with a huge outdoor dining table so you can enjoy the outdoor life as well. Plenty of parking for all cars in the adjoining field.
