Earlier this month, we visited The Four Seasons Hampshire Wedding Showcase with a Planned for Perfection Bride & Groom to discuss plans for their Summer wedding. The event was organised by Emma Westacott, the Wedding and Event Manager at the hotel, a luxury manor house located in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, just an hour from central London.
The long drive to the venue winds through the gardens in the Hampshire countryside, giving you a fabulous view of this elegant house in all its grandeur. I was met initially by a rather charming doorman, who parked my car and from that very first impression, the hospitality and attention to detail was second to none.
My clients and I met in the library for a planning meeting, before following the candle lit glass walkway, which links the main house to the function rooms, to the showcase. We were greeted by a team of friendly and professional staff serving Champagne and delicious canapés and musician Jake Chantler, who was playing his guitar.
The floral displays thoughout the hotel were incredible – Zita Elze, who was introduced to us by our friend Fiona Perry Floral, had helped to decorate the area, which looked stunning. Paula Rooney had decorated the main hallway beautifully, which smelt as good as it looked! Blomster Designs created a really vibrant and stunning floral display and Wildabout Flowers dressed some of the tables in the ballroom – four amazingly talented florists who would be a perfect choice for any bride.
The showcase was a great opportunity to meet the wedding suppliers recommended by The Four Seasons, as well as being able to see the rooms dressed to impress by the team. It was great to catch up with Elizabeth Solaru from Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium, Elizabeth made a wedding cake for a wedding that we planned at The Savoy in London and her cakes never cease to amaze me – she’s one talented lady and her cakes are to die for!
Cake maker extraordinaire, Peggy Porshen was also exhibiting and her cakes were incredible too – she is shortlisted for another P4P wedding later this year and I very much look forward to receiving plans for the proposed cake that she may be making for them..
Also exhibiting were Bubblegum Balloons, Design in Scent, Suzie Turner from Bespoke Wedding Gown, Prive by Gina Conway, Cutture bespoke event stationery, Maggie Hunt, Eight Ray Music, Greg Fitzgerald at 3 Point Lighting, Kate Nielen Photography, Velvet Living, Jak Farley, Drinks Fusion and Luxury Wedding Planner Bruce Russell, who was offering a fabulous competition to win a planning meeting with him, open to all couples who attended the event.
The showcase was the perfect occasion to discuss details for my clients August wedding
Thank you to Carey Sheffield who I met at the wedding showcase, for allowing me to use photographs that she took at the event.
