We are really looking forward to catering for all the weddings already booked for 2o14 and our new venture, which we shall make more public in due course.

Happy Christmas and New Year to everyone from us all at

Christmas Wedding at Millbrook Estate

If there is one thing that we love about this time of the year it’s being asked to cater for a christmas/winter wedding.  Hot handmade sausage rolls,  quiche, and warmed mince pies with clotted cream, the fire blazing away and lots of festive decorations, balloons and crackers.  It really was a lovely later afternoon wedding as the sun had set and the christmas lights were twinkling in the dark.

If you are thinking of a Christmas Wedding in Devon, we can certainly recommend Millbrook Estate and of course we would be happy to organise a completely bespoke festive feast for you made by hand from Devon produce.

Here are some photos from today:

Afternoon Tea in the Secret Garden

In August we were privileged to cater for an intimate wedding for two, this time in the Secret Garden for a ‘runaway bride wedding’, which is a wonderful and personal day designed just for the couple to get married on their own.  Hidden behind a wall is a small patio area, pond and  conservatory with lovely views of the lake with the willow tree swooping down to touch the water.  Here are a handful of photos.

Free Vintage China Hire in Devon

Would you believe it possible to actually get your vintage china free of charge?

Of course, why pay!

We hire out our vintage china, teapots, plates, etc.  free of charge with any of our catering packages.  So if you choose one of our Afternoon Teas and would like all the vintage trimmings our china will be on the tables.

There are also no hidden costs either.  When you hire china from an independent company you may have to pay additional costs of delivery, collection and wash-up.  Not with us, it’s all part of the service.  We will even set it all up for you on the day when we arrive with you food.

How simple is that?

See our menus page above for ideas on what food you and your guests could be eating on your special day.  However, it’s not all about Afternoon Tea we can also provide a varied menu and take inspiration from you.

Or visit our website The Vintage Party Co.
