About Us


Sand and Seagulls was formed in July 2013 by Zoe and Ash Payne. We have lived by the seaside all our lives and so have a real love of the beach. So much so, in August 2010 when we got married we had a seaside themed wedding with all things beachy from a VW camper to a fish & chips evening buffet!

When Rudy, our eldest son, came along in December 2012 this gave Zoe the opportunity and idea (in-between naps and nappy changes!) to get creative again. In the evenings after work Ash learnt how to make a website, so we put our new found skills together and created Sand and Seagulls.Why Sand and Seagulls? – Because quite simply they’re the things we love about the seaside, and it sounds quite good too!

Zoe left her job in Financial Services Marketing in 2016 to concentrate on being a Mum and Sand and Seagulls. So now with three boys and Dolly the Pug to look after Zoe spends as much time as she can in her office/studio following her passion.

We are always thinking of new ideas and products so keep checking back in with us, and we’re also on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter please help us spread the Sand and Seagulls word!
