Save The Dates!

Here are a couple of “Save The Dates” for February. I guess they aren’t just “save the dates”, they are really “please come and join me”.

Save The Dates!First, on Friday 16th, The Hampshire Wedding Group are organising a Valentine’s Charity Dinner Dance at Ampfield Golf Club in aid of Marie Curie & The Southampton Centre for Cancer Immunology. I’m delighted, like many of the group members, to be donating my services to the evening.

Tickets are £45 per person, however I’m putting together a table of guests and would like to offer all previous and current couples and their guests a £10 contribution per ticket – so they will pay £35 per ticket, or £45 if they wish with an extra £10 going straight to the charities. If you are interested just email me or there is a contact form below.

Save The Dates!Then, on Tuesday 20th, it’s my next ‘Creating Your WOW Wedding’ evening when I run through the typical wedding day timeline to explain how to incorporate the principles in the ‘Your WOW Wedding’ booklet into your big day.

I’ll share tips on how your wedding can become a ‘WOW Wedding’, things like …
* How to set the tone for your wedding day before you even enter the ceremony
* Sharing your Love Story
* How to make sure the dance floor is packed


Tickets are FREE this time but a donation to the charities would be welcomed on the night.

So please save the dates and please come and join me.

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
