The Team

Sarah

I’m passionate about local suppliers, fantastic produce and personal service…

….And this is exactly what we plan to bring to you!

I am a natural born organiser and lover of all things ‘wedding’. After planning and organising my own wedding in July 2014 I realised how tricky it is to find smaller, local businesses supplying the wedding sector who provide fantastic service at reasonable prices. Weddings are becoming more extravagant and losing their uniqueness, becoming more of a conveyor belt in larger venues with preferred providers. There’s only limited scope to create your wedding exactly as you wish, but by using our providers and “building” your wedding yourself you can have complete control and endless options to do exactly what you want!

Having spent hours searching for suppliers within my area with whom I could meet and discuss my requirements I concluded that many couples simply do not have the time to do this, hence the creation of Southern Wedding! I intend to take the hard work out of looking for interesting, unique, local suppliers, many of whom you may miss through normal internet searches, placing the information at your fingertips, alongside a wealth of wedding inspiration and advice, so you can concentrate on creating the wedding of your dreams that is uniquely yours.

Why Southern Wedding? Well I grew up in Kent, live in Hampshire, have family in Surrey and Devon and have spent a lot of time visiting other areas of the beautiful south. It is my home and I want to celebrate, promote and support all the fabulous businesses we have in this wonderful area of the country! I am amazed by the number of suppliers out there and their talent, and think it’s about time they have a platform away from the big suppliers who dominate the wedding industry.
