Vintage wedding ideas

I exhibited at the vintage wedding fair on Sunday and it was amazing! I love going there, getting inspiration and seeing all the fab products, dresses and ideas for a vintage wedding. I thought I would share a few as they are just too lovely to keep to myself!

Vintage afternoon tea wedding.

Treat your guests to afternoon tea, with classic cakes and pots of steaming tea, this will certainly keep them very happy. You can have a sit down wedding afternoon tea or let guests help themselves, whatever you decide you simply must have vintage china and cakes to complete the look.

Vintage style flowers

I recommend you contact Kerry at The Blossom Tree for vintage flowers, a very beautiful and professional florist...love!

Wedding stationery.

I love Vintage Twee and Lucy Ledger Designs for creative, vintage inspired stationery for your wedding. They can create anything you like and are lovely ladies, I would highly recommend you get in touch with them immediately.

Fabulous vintage hair

Create your perfect hairstyle from any era, 1920's to 1950's, you name it Beth from The Vintage Beauty Parlour can create it for you... so fabulous. I was lucky enough to have my stall next to Beth so I certainly took the opportunity to photograph her and her beautiful ladies, styled ala 1940's. To get in touch with Beth, just call her on 07791 703 535 or email her at daviesbethany@rocketmail.com

There you go, lots of vintage ideas for you to create your perfect vintage wedding.

I will be at The Vintage Fair in London on the 14th November, serving tea and cake to the masses, so get down there, I urge you, its fab!

Wedgwood cupcakes

I designed some samples for a wedding cake consultation today. The bride booked with me, so I take it she liked them!

Watch this space for the final cake; its an amazing one, nothing I have done before and will certainly test my piping skills!

Original vintage weddings...

I have just completed another fantastic vintage wedding, the Bride and Groom were so creative and had some wonderful original ideas!

My job was to provide the afternoon tea for guests, so that I did. All guests were treated to 7 of my home made cakes; Victoria sponge, Coffee and Walnut, Lemon Drizzle and Chocolate and Cherry. The bride and groom had a Victoria sponge for their wedding cake, which I thought was fab.

My favourite part of this wedding set up was the little bride and groom area, with the cool deck chairs and vintage place settings, such a great idea, something I may well pinch if I ever get married!!

The venue was the really beautiful Beechen Hill Farm, Sue is a Twitter friend of mine so it was great to finally meet her in the flesh. They have a lovely farm and its a perfect place to get married, I would highly recommend it to anyone, as the personal service you receive is amazing.

So there you have it another vintage wedding done. I will be looking forward to meeting new brides and grooms at the vintage wedding fair this Sunday.
