To bring a touch of English refinery to your wedding, think all things Alice in Wonderland, with a touch of George Elliot period glamour. Pretty porcelain tea pots, tea cups and saucers decorated with dainty floral designs will make the perfect tableware and you can use vintage silver trays as the basis for your centre pieces. For a touch of eccentric tea party glamour, use pearl beads as decorations for the chairs or tables.
When it comes to the floral arrangements, keep it simple with one floral arrangement per table, displayed in a glass jar with ribbons, and a handmade bouquet for bride. Obviously, the wedding breakfast should be a delicious Afternoon Tea spread, with finger sandwiches, scrumptious cakes, scones and of course champagne. For a fitting musical accompaniment- a jazz band will really set the tone.
Nicola’s Top Tip: A large golden mirror frame will really spruce up your table plan, and an old suitcase makes the perfect container for gifts and cards.
