We were back at Millbrook estate celebrating an intimate wedding of 20 for David and Karen last week. They held their reception at the Retreat which is our most favourite places to dress as it’s a hidden gem near two lakes surrounded by trees and only round the corner from us. It’s a blank canvas with so many options. Our couple chose to have a barn dance on the grass for their guests and booked a local band and caller to ensure their feet weren’t all entangled.
Photos below are how we dressed the Retreat with ribbons, roses, netting and ivy. David and Karen also chose to have our vintage ladder and crates with our display items, and the Retreat was internally dressed with bunting, hearts and our jugs full of flowers. We added small jars with battery operated tealights and large hurricane lamps with candles for the evening.

We have just recently catered for a lovely afternoon tea wedding in North Devon. The sun was shining, the birds singing, lovely music playing and everything was perfect. Even the dogs enjoyed themselves and I believe the odd sandwich too! Here are a handful of photos of the day’s festivities:
Not only do we love weddings, but love it when the couple we have looked after come back to us the following year to celebrate their anniversary with an Afternoon Tea
The girls chose to have one of our luscious carrot cakes with cream cheese filling and topping to add to their scones and tea sandwiches.
We would like to wish Nikki and Kelly a happy anniversary and hope they enjoy their stay in North Devon this week.
In July we catered for a lovely couple, Nikki & Kelly’s for their Civil Ceremony in North Devon. The day was lovely and warm, the sun shone and their guests spent the afternoon chilling on the grass.
The Retreat & BBQ Hut
Our scones and clotted cream went down very well with their guests and we also provided a simple BBQ of burgers and sausages.

We recently became one of Millbrook Cottages‘ preferred suppliers and have already had the opportunity to cater for our first couple on their wedding day. We locally source everything where possible, and hand-bake on the day of each wedding.
Mr & Mrs Thurston asked for an Afternoon Tea with Devon Cream Tea in the Summer House at Millbrook just after their wedding ceremony. Mr Thurston loves vinyl records so his wife-to-be secretly hired our 1930s fully working gramophone and shellac records for them to have playing in the background.
Below is a lovely note she sent to us:
“We cannot recommend the vintage party company highly enough! Our wedding afternoon tea was simply fabulous!
From the delicious sandwiches, through to the divine scones, the food was scrumptious! The attention to detail by Carolyn was superb, and I definitely recommend the gramophone and records, it was a perfect finishing touch!
Thank you Carolyn for making our special day even more special!”
