Testimonials

Wonderful words about our members

We love working alongside all of our HWC members, it brings us such joy to read the wonderful testimonials they receive from clients and other suppliers.

So with a warm heart, we are delighted to tell you about their brilliance and share the lovely words people say about them…

Natasha Jay Photography

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.

Freight Train Runners

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.

Beyond Vintage

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.

What makes Hampshire so 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.
