Vintage China At Weddings

I was working late last night setting up lots and lots of my vintage china at a wedding at Rosliston Forestry Centre. It all looked so lovely once it was set up, unfortunately we didnt get to see the full set up so we had to take photos of empty cake stands but later on today they will be filled to the brim with cakes and other goodies.

The bride and groom are having an afternoon tea for their wedding breakfast and then an evening meal later on, this is a great thing to do for your wedding as it really treats your guests and is very simple to do, especially if you get me to style your tables! :)

Vintage china hire is still going strong and is a beautiful addition to your wedding decor and general feel of the day. I personally love it!

Thanks to Vicky and Alex for hiring us for their beautiful wedding we hope you have a wonderful day!

5 Tier Wedding Cake

I delivered a huge wedding cake this Saturday and it was a lovely one!

The actual design was based on the bride's business which she runs with her brother, called Pocket Typewriter, they design adorable stationary and are a very talented duo. The cake was designed around their 'Lets Eat Cake' wedding stationary collection... beoooootiful!

The flavours were rich fruit cake on the bottom, vanilla, double chocolate, lemon drizzle and banana and walnut on top. Resulting in a very heavy cake indeed, you should have seen me driving to the venue with it... VERY slowly, people must have thought they were following an old age pensioner!

When I got to the venue I was overwhelmed at how absolutely stunning they had made it, I thought I would share some photos with you so you can see it too. The couple had paid such attention to detail in every little nook and cranny of their venue even the toilets were decorated beautifully with heart wreaths, flowers and their own personalised soaps and hand creams with severe warnings that using them might cause outbreaks of dancing, brilliant!

Lovely isn't it!

Leckie and John you are both fabulous and we wish you a very long and happy life together, you creative pair you!

Hen Party Vintage Cupcake Class


I held another lovely hen party at the weekend, well I actually run them every weekend but I don't always take photographs. I thought I would this time as everyone dressed up in their finest vintage, both the bride to be and her best friend had on their grandma's dresses from the 50s and they looked gorgeous!

They all spent the afternoon sipping champagne from vintage teacups and enjoyed a full afternoon tea whilst listening to Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra and Nina Simone amongst others! They came away with 9 beautifully decorated vanilla cupcakes which I was told went down very well during the rest of their hen weekend.

Lucy, the bride to be is hiring my vintage teapots to fill with flowers at her wedding and my teacups will be filled with old fashioned sweets, cant wait to see the photos.

We wish you a beautiful wedding day Lucy!

Vintage Wedding Table Centre Piece Ideas

Vintage teapot filled with flowers

One of my gorgeous brides shared her photographs with me from her wedding last weekend. She hired out my vintage teapots, tea plates, cake stands and cake slices. The teapots were filled with flowers and placed on top of a pile of lovely old books and the cake stands were used for Victoria sponges, chocolate cakes and cute mini cakes and treats.

The lovely bride and her bridesmaids cutting into cakes with their vintage cake slice!

The bride, Amy only managed to take a few snaps as they were too busy dancing the night away! They look fab don't they, I love it when my brides take the time to send me the pics of their day its a real treat for me to see them all set out and how the couple have used them and in this case very creatively!

A sneaky peek at some white wedding cupcakes

These little beauties were made for a consultation, their theme as you might have guessed is predominately white! They have gone for a mix of beautiful vintage cupcake designs including cameos, buttons, roses and a little hint of green in some delicate leaves. I cant wait to design these cupcakes and deliver them to the amazing Chatsworth House!
