What makes Hampshire so very special for couples?
Perhaps it is the rural patchwork of farms and fields, seen for miles as you drive around our gorgeous county. Perhaps it is the traditional charms of chocolate-box cottages in the New Forest, Houghton Lodge in Stockbridge for a wander in the glorious gardens, or the promise of a simply sensational by the fire pub lunch that makes Hampshire so alluring and deeply satisfying.
Perhaps it is at stay at the extraordinarily unique and bijou Hannah’s B&B in Winchester or the hearty and inviting Greyhound on the Test in Stockbridge in the Test Valley that makes life feel sooo good.
“Having won Michelin Pub of the Year 2014, the Greyhound has added three very well-appointed bedrooms to the operation, bringing the total to 10. It is furnished with impeccably good taste. My room is cool and cloistered with a low window that looks out on to the high street. The gun-metal grey walls make a virtue of the low ceiling. There’s a luxurious, well-made sturdiness to everything: the cut-stone basin, the thick white towels, the needle-point scatter cushions on the bed. The marbled and tiled bathroom is almost as large as the bedroom, and is decked out with a stand-alone roll-top bath and a walk-in shower’. Oscar Quine, The Independent
The extraordinary Greyhound will be hosting our couples and suppliers breakfast from January onwards, please keep an eye out for further information on our social media. Tickets will be available via our Eventbrite page.
If not, maybe its a romantic stay in the ever so lovely Georgian Hotel Du Vin Winchester after you have cuddled with your love on the three seater at Everyman cinema and said cheers with a perfect G&T in the ridiculously stylish Green Man Winchester.
Perhaps it is the tantalising Aviator by Tag in Farnborough for those with their heads in the clouds, with its sky bar and picture perfect staircase.
This is a land of country drives in leafy lanes, picnic lunches on grassy hilltops and rooting around antique fairs for vintage finds. Maybe your a coastal idyllic lover and have found it at Tournerbury and you are looking forward to your wedding being accompanied by outstanding harbour views across the South Downs.
As a bride and groom, what does the story of your wedding look like? What brings you to the moment of eye shutting, shoulder lifting, happy, smiling bliss? When you sit around the table with your besties celebrating your 20 year wedding anniversary, what will you remember? What will still make you chuckle with happiness as you reminisce, nostalgic in your memories, or what make you laugh out loud?
Hampshire has it all, it is the perfect blend. Relaxing, invigorating, coastally beautiful, rurally breathtaking, historically captivating. We can do riverside boho, city chic, and traditionally elegant.
Welcome to the Hampshire Wedding Club, I can’t wait to inspire you with more unique country love stories.
