Hi, I’m Tasha. I am an eternal optimist. A gin drinker, the host of the Cafe Sessions, the Founder of the Hampshire Wedding Club. I am a kind-hearted wedding industry fangirl. A foodie. An editorial shoot lover.
I am the creator of something new revolutionary for the wedding industry, and a huge believer in community over competition. I firmly believe passion and business combine.
I don’t like chair sashes, love brazen creativity, and adore collaborative opportunities. I believe cliques and bad-mouthing in the wedding industry should be publically frowned upon and I love a challenge. Welcome to the Hampshire Wedding Club, where passion meets professionalism and the opportunities are endless.
Because weddings are more than just a pretty dress, great flowers, a first dance and list of jobs.
By creating this unique space it is our aim to provide a more compassionate wedding industry through supplier leadership, creativity and heartfelt contributions.
Because finding intuitive, driven suppliers delivers such precious results to your wedding day. You should not overlook the challenge and benefit of finding them.
Our couples and brides are brilliant, excited about marriage and infinitely kind-hearted. They are the kind of people who want to see and understand why a positive authentic change in the wedding industry is so important. Change to benefit both suppliers and couples equally.
We are proud to have created an interactive, inspiring and beautiful online portfolio for brides and grooms showcasing all the fabulous wedding industry talent we have in Hampshire. Welcome to “The List” by the Hampshire Wedding Club. We are delighted to introduce the most outstanding Hampshire wedding suppliers. Many of these suppliers, specialists and creatives we know personally. Many we have had the privilege of working with. These splendid suppliers are fully committed to their craft, service and customers. They are worthy of the referral we provide here.
Inspired by Rising Tide’s ‘20 on the rise’, The Hampshire Wedding Club is celebrating the individuals who are, in the words of RT… “making waves and raising the tide, rocking their respective industries through hard work, determination and creativity.”
The HWC loves to shout about all that is great about the Hampshire wedding industry, so what better way to do this than by selecting 5 PEOPLE/ORGANISATION for 5 CATEGORIES = 25 WAVEMAKERS…
The requirement is that the individual or business needs to be located in Hampshire or have significantly supported the Hampshire Wedding Industry.
So, without further ado, we are delighted to introduce you to our Quarter 3 2018 #Quintessentiallyemerging suppliers

I really don’t think I could write a review good enough to express how great Tash is. From start to finish she was absolutely amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. She constantly went out of her way to make the engagement shoot and wedding day perfect. On the wedding day her and her husband Will were just great. We didn’t feel like we were being photographed, we felt like they were our friends taking photos of us, which made us so much more relaxed. The photographs were fantastic, they were so beautiful and also we couldn’t believe the feel of the day was also captured so well. We will be using Tash for many many years to come for our family photographs and life events to be captured. Find out more here.

Prior to the big day Connie was so organised in finalising our details and kept in touch with the venue and was so flexible with her availability and set arrangements so there was very little we needed to worry about and get involved in. She had chosen the perfect songs that could be enjoyed by everyone there. In the evening, everything was set up inside and the tempo picked up getting everyone in the mood to dance the night away. So many of our guests commented on how wonderful Connie was on the day and how relaxed the whole day was. I honestly think Connie played such a big part in making our day perfect. I would highly recommend her for any event or celebration. Such a beautiful voice, so musically talented that she was able to tell what worked for the guests, and such a lovely bubbly person to have there on the day. Just fantastic! Find out more here.
Lou of Beyond Vintage has been just amazing. My wedding could not happen without her! She has helped me with every aspect not only the styling. Any ‘problems’ I thought I ha, she has been able to resolve very quickly with simple solutions. Every time I speak to her about the wedding she has more and more great ideas. Furthermore, Lou has put me in touch with other specialists such as a florist and wedding coordinator who are very reasonable in price and have delivered everything we want so far. It is obvious that Lou loves and cares so much about what she does. I feel very confident that she is in control and has every aspect covered before and on the day. I cannot recommend Beyond Vintage enough. Lou is a true professional and will make any event a success. Find out more here.
