We are on the Rock n Roll Bride website this month!
Click on the link above to be taken to some really lovely photos by the amazing photographer Annamarie Stepney ( www.annamariestepney.co.uk )of a unique and gorgeous vintage tea party wedding we styled with our vintage crockery and other lovely vintage accessories.We also made a scrumptious jam and vanilla buttercream sponge iced two tier wedding cake which was lavishly decorated with red roses and displayed on our antique silver tray.
Here`s the story behind the photos :
I first met the bride Marie - Claire when she came to Splendid Days HQ for a consultation with her lovely mother .We sat together to talk over Marie- Claire`s vision for her wedding day and all enjoyed cupcakes and tea served on vintage china.Apparently the tea party theme came about as Marie - Claire and her Mother love nothing more than a visit to a tearoom for tea and cakes ( I knew they had style as soon as I found that out!)
Straight away I could see that this wedding was going to be something really special and I got that buzz of excitement you get when you know that an event is going to really come together and have a unique style of it`s own .
Marie- Claire stunning red wedding dress and her mothers beautiful lace dress came from the London Store Fur Coat No Knickers .Here they take vintage dresses revamp them and tailor them to fit you perfectly .If you want a dress that is totally unique and beautiful then do go and take a look.Her photographer captured so well the vintage vibe and all the little details that had been so carefully chosen ,from the shoes to close ups of the hand embroidered table linen.
Her florists actually grew all the flowers for the wedding themselves and then arranged them with great finesse.The colours were really bold, joyous and vibrant .I would highly recommend them.Apparently you chose your flowers as they are growing in the ground or they can grow something you would especially love!
Marie -Claire`s Mum made some gorgeous chutney as wedding favours and then had bespoke labels made for the jars.It`s always lovely if the family gets involved and there are some personal touches to a wedding .
Go and take a peek a the photos and and see what you think!
