Weekender Gallery

20's, 50's & 60's

In October 2018, the highly anticipated return of the 'Dawn's Vintage Weekender' at its new home on Hayling Island, Hampshire, it was the perfectly bonkers weekend away and dubbed a 'retreat for the soul'. A vintage escape from everyday modern life where guests could immerse themselves in my imagination.
