We had a lovely afternoon at Exeter Castle recently for a vintage wedding. The bride chose our Afternoon Tea to co-ordinate with her theme of Agatha Christie, each table was named after a novel. Here are some photos of the day.

We were really pleased to be part of Susan and Andrew’s wedding in the Summer. Susan spent about 12 months creating some lovely items for her day. From hand-making all the pom poms and tieing up the netting backdrop to making the bunting and decorating jam jars, she even had time to create a photo wall. She hired our vintage ladders, voiles, crates and buckets to create some fabulous displays, which you can see in the photos. We supplied our afternoon tea as a buffet followed by a BBQ in the evening. Pretty tea-lights were lit at about 5pm with various colours of glass giving a lovely warm glow.
Below are photos of the day, please contact us if you would like to hire any of the following or ask us to style your wedding for you
Planks of wood
Decorated Jam Jars
and lots more shabby chic and vintage items

Sarah wanted an afternoon tea, but decided that the children should have a sweety and cookie table. We love making cookies so made sure the children had plenty to eat.
The grown-ups were having our usual afternoon tea and Sarah supplied us with all the trimmings to make Pimms.
It was a truly lovely day for them both and all their guests.
When Emma came to us and asked for Afternoon Tea, would you be surprised that we said “ooh yes please, we would love to help you?” of course you wouldn’t, but that’s not because this is our job, it’s because we love vintage and afternoon teas.
