Our Wedding Celebration

24th August 2019


To our guests!

We are getting married in a small family ceremony, and as we can’t have many of you there, we’ve opted not to have a traditional reception and instead have a big party for everybody the following day - Saturday 24th August, 2019.

We've booked out Portchester Community Centre and we'd love you to join us there from 4pm until late for our summer festival themed wedding celebration.

Whilst we are grateful for your kind thoughts, gifts are not necessary.
[UPDATE: A few of you are very sweet (and persistant) on this matter... and though we are adamant that we are happy just to see everybody, we would of course be grateful for either a small donation towards our honeymoon or a charitable donation - there will be collection buckets on the day]

Dress code: Party! No need for a suit and tie. Think 'loud' and think summer!

Portchester Community Centre,
Westlands Grove,
PO16 9AD

Bar: Open bar of beers, wines, and some spirits - but when it's gone, it's gone! You are also free to bring your own drinks (or there is a Co-op 5 mins walk away)

Food & Drink

There will be an ‘open bar’ of beers, wines, and soft drinks, however you are also free to bring along anything you wish to drink.

We are catering the event ourselves, and there will be a variety of different cuisines appearing at the buffet throughout the afternoon and evening.

If you have any food allergies, please let us know – you are also very welcome to bring along your own food.


Please RSVP — rsvp@willandphil.com.


There will be a DJ, a live band, and karaoke throughout the evening. If you are interested in taking part in the musical arrangements, please do let us know.

Children are very welcome - there is a small enclosed garden where we will be setting up games (weather permitting).
