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 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

We were recently asked to cater for another Mad Hatters Tea party. This time for a wedding and the couple chose to have a buffet style so they could all take advantage of the fabulous weather and sit outside. We dressed the Retreat at Millbrook Estate with our bunting and the couple hired our wishing tree for their guests to leave messages on luggage labels. They purchased old books and brought along lots of lovely items to dress the table with and everyone sat around outside and enjoyed the sun. In the evening they had a BBQ.
The following photos were taken just before the wedding party arrived:
