Vintage Country Afternoon Tea Wedding in a Village Hall Setting in Devon

I have always believed that if it rains on your wedding day it’s good luck! On Friday 1st of august it rained, actually North Devon REALLY rained, but this didn’t affect Hannah and Sam’s wedding plans. They were married in a lovely church in Bideford and held their reception at Weare Giffard village hall. They chose blues as their colour theme and hired our vintage china and blue and cream tablecloths. Hannah used simple jam jars with Hydrangeas and Gypsophila to create a country theme.

We supplied our Afternoon Tea with additional canapes. Hannah chose to have a cake table so that her guests could come and go for cakes as they pleased over the afternoon and evening. We brought along our traditional cakes, strawberries in bowls and macrons, and her mum made her wedding cake, the two top layers were biscuit cake and the bottom a lovely rich fruit cake as you can see from the photos it was really lovely and everyone enjoyed a slice.

Below are the photos we took of the hall and tables. Lydia (my assistant) and I had a lovely afternoon looking after all their guests and were really pleased to have been part of their special day.

Country Wedding at Millbrook Estate

If you are looking for a country wedding package then we can create one for you. The photos below are taken from a fabulous day we had at Millbrook Estate for the wedding of Linda the wedding co-ordinator that many of you who read this blog will know very well. Linda came to us last year and asked for a country style in the Retreat so this is what we created for her with lots of help from Lisa at Millbrook who kindly lent us some of her own personal items. Linda was banned from seeing it, (despite her making attempts in the evening to take as sneaky peak) until she arrived in the UTV (which had been decorated with Flowers) with Bob, Kate and ring bearer Iszy. The sun shone, Dave cooked us a fabulous BBQ and we had a really lovely day, even my daughter was there to enjoy the fun with Lisa’s children and Iszy.

For those of you who are getting married either at Millbrook or looking for a country wedding package in North Devon contact us for prices as we can do all the hard work for you, all you need to do is arrive and say “I do.”
