“The last time I saw Paris, her heart was warm and gay, I hear the laughter of her heart in every street cafe The last time I saw Paris, her trees were dressed for spring, and lovers walked beneath those trees and birds found songs to sing”. Oscar Hammerstein

We love our collaborative ventures with the team at Hotel Du Vin.  We work with them on carefully thought out branded editorials, that really showcase the gorgeous venue.  While the Hampshire Wedding Club has found a gorgeous place to work, hold events, rest, play, be creative, and of course, get inspired.

I absolutely loved working on a unique editorial concept with Lou from Beyond Vintage again, it had been wayyyy too long.  Converting her idea into a bridal shoot is a fulfilling and fascinating adventure.  Especially when what we created is a predicted style for 2019 across many industries, not just the wedding industry.  We wanted to find a je ne sais quoi, embracing a continental chic approach to the traditions of quintessential Paris.  What is not to love about café styling, café culture, and bags of gorgeous Coco Chanel elegance?

Café culture in France goes back centuries.  Cafes have always been a gathering place, to feast, drink wine, sip tiny coffees, debate and of course looks fabulous. What is NOT to like?  The “chic set” Café Society culture developed across the 19th century.  A group of so-called “beautiful people”, the elite, the adventurous, the outspoken and the decadent.

It is these cafes and this style we felt suited our beautiful Hampshire wedding venue with its strong links to French style and bistro life. So we made it our mission to develop the idea of “perfect Parisian charm”.  We hope you will see how the Iconic Latin Quarter meets a city chic stylish Hampshire wedding venue.

Exciting news!

We are so excited by the next stage of this journey together.  For the first time, the suppliers involved in this editorial shoot will run an open house for couples at Hotel Du Vin, Winchester. We are very excited to create a revival of this gorgeous shoot on the 10th of March, and we hope you will stop by. We will be opening the townhouse doors to showcase how perfect this dame is for your modern nuptials.  We look forward to seeing you there.

We wanted our wedding to have some element of connection to a part of our lives. We also wanted a venue which would be unusual and memorable for our guests. That’s when Boon started thinking about the possibility of having it at Winchester College, where he spent many happy years at school.
