Ellie & Iain’s Vintage Tea Party Wedding

Ellie & Iain first came to see me in August 2013 and booked their wedding for 26 July 2014. Almost a year in which to plan, design and make their perfect wedding. The only thing out of their control was the weather and even this turned out to be perfect!

Ellie had spent months making pom-poms to decorate the marquee and her efforts were well worth-while. The marquee and grounds looked lovely decorated in pastel orange and greens. Every detail had been carefully planned and all went to plan (thankfully).

A hot sunny day and guests were glad to have Pimms on the lawn and a cooling ice cream from the ice cream trike.

Then into the marquee for full afternoon tea complete with vintage china; sandwiches, savoury pastries, home-made cakes. Speeches followed with the bride’s father’s the best I have ever heard – made everyone laugh and then in tears!

Following the afternoon tea, everyone headed back outside with sweet handwritten notes for the bride and groom. They were given balloons to tie them to, and released them all together into the summer sky. Such a lovely sight!

The party started with live music from “The Shenanigans” who had everyone on the floor dancing until midnight. An evening hog roast with full buffet salads was followed by scrumptious wedding cake made by Sue, Ellie’s Mum.

A great day – thank you Ellie & Iain for letting us share your special day!
