Spring into the sunnier seasons with this shoot, which showcases super-pretty vintage tea party styling for your wedding day.
Make the most of flea markets, charity shops and car boot sales to source your own eclectic mix of crockery. Not only will these elegant pieces make your place settings look great, their second-hand nature makes them easy on your budget, too!
With more and more children involved in weddings, be sure to think of them too when planning your details. These canvas tote bags fit the theme beautifully and are sure to make your young attendants feel special.
Bunting, paper pom-poms and an up-cycled ladder offer whimsical, vintage tea party style.
Whether you choose a naked or iced cake, natural floral and fruit details are the perfect finishing touches for a tea party theme.
Choose flowers in vibrant colours, like fuchsia pink, to add a bright splash of colour that will pop against a pastel colour scheme.
Bespoke wooden signs with calligraphy-style phrases will personalise your wedding and look ultra pretty.
Using props can help calm nerves during your couple’s portraits by giving you something to do. Co-ordinate your props with your wider wedding theme for even better results.
