Will Hewer has worked in hospitality since the tender age of 15, and has always been hooked working on events. Moving into the wedding industry was, for him, always a natural progression, given that Water’s Edge is a family business, previously managed and operated by both his parents.
When asked to share his most memorable wedding, he declares, “There are too many to mention. At Water’s Edge at Ewen we provide a blank canvas for couples to create their own, unique and magical wedding.” His advice to engaged couples planning their wedding is simple. “Enjoy the process. It will be over so quickly! Also don’t be afraid to speak to venues – we have a wealth of information and wisdom – when looking at other suppliers and top tips.”
