About Tasha

Meet Tasha

If I was to share a few simple truths with you, they’d be that I think everything happens for a reason, cake can be eaten at any time of the day and I’ve always dreamed of living by the sea but seagulls get on my nerves.  However, I also believe that in life, you should always be courageous.  That’s why I started The Hampshire Wedding Club.  I’ve been a wedding photographer for years and I adore how passionate my industry is and how inspiring the creative people around me are. Before I started my own photography company Ikonworks, I worked for international brands such as Verizon, Porsche, Game and Morgan Stanley for 16 years as an executive assistant.  The perfect grounding for starting up and running my own show – multitasking, organising and attention to detail are in my DNA.

But here’s the thing, above all I subscribe to the mantra that doing what you love makes you happy.  So seeing a gap in the wedding industry, I thought it was high time I started pulling together the fantastic creatives and professionals I’ve worked with.  I wanted to create an interactive, inspiring and beautiful online portfolio for brides and grooms that not only showcases all the fabulous wedding industry talent we have in Hampshire, but also acts as a revolutionary social space and digital lookbook for wedding creatives.  That’s how The Hampshire Wedding Club was born.

 When I am not shooting weddings, hosting events or running The Hampshire Wedding Club, I’m Tasha who is married to Martin and mum to Sam and Abby – our two lovely, funny, feisty kids.  Most days you’ll find me surgically attached to my desk or curating love stories through a lens but I can often be found on the side of a rugby pitch or grabbing a quick coffee before going on a webinar.  I can’t survive without coffee.
