We were very lucky to have a host of the UK’s most talented and creative wedding and party stylists on board for this event. Each of their tables blew everyone away with their originality and colour. So inspiring!

 

First up, take a look at what Michelle and Vicki from Pocketful of Dreams created with their team. I was in awe of the beautiful colours and so excited to see the names on the plates (especially with my name – yay!!)

And Michelle and Vicki also created this wonderful Love sign that hung from the trees which made a great backdrop for photos with the models. Pocketful of Dreams have just launched these custom signs as a new service for weddings and other events – they would be brilliant for wedding photographs!

Before we head back inside to admire the rest of the tables, I must not miss out a mention of Fosters Catering who provided such scrummy welcome drinks of Pink Lemonade and Iced Tea with pretty striped paper straws, our cash bar and the most amazing canapes with a vintage afternoon tea twist. A real talking point!

Lindsey and Peter from Fosters Catering who kept us well watered and fed – thank you guys!

Sue from Auntie’s Vintage China had the amazing idea of creating a table inspired by Aphrodite’s Wedding Feast. Piled high with delectable treats and beautiful flowers wound around chairs and across the table, the stunning centrepiece were cakes by Chocolate Delores which created quite a stir!

The next table in the orangery was styled by Andri Benson from Always Andri and Jodie Vigour from Boutique Blooms. We loved the bright and modern colour pops, chevron patterns and yummy macarons (I even got to take some home – hurrah and nom!)!

And our final stylist was Kate from Belle & Boo, who styled the most beautiful children’s vintage teaparty with products from the Belle & Boo range and had beautiful flowers in jam jars from The Rose Shed dotted around the table with a scrumptious birthday cake dripping with icing by Eat Sleep Cake  in the centre!

Wow, so are you on sensory overload yet?!? I think I am (or is that all the coffee I’ve had since yesterday?!).

 

Before I go, a few more thank yous to be shared – obviously to the venue Goldney Hall (and Natalie in particular) who really caught the vision of this event. We are so happy to have had this venue to launch the blog – it is so beautiful and we highly recommend it for weddings or other events. They are hosting their own Vintage Wedding Fayre on Sunday September 2nd, so do pop along to that as well if you can. The link for more information is here: http://www.goldneyweddingfayre.co.uk/

 

Thanks also to our team behind the scenes live blogging, tweeting, facebooking and photographing the event – they did an amazing job in our media centre!

Phew!

 

And last but by no means least, a big thank you to my husband Lee for his support – he helped out in so many different ways – particularly in the media centre but also with lifts, drinks and general encouragement – I couldn’t have done it without him.

 

I *think* I have mentioned and credited everyone involved! If I have missed anyone do give me a shout and I shall rectify immediately!

 

Thanks to everyone for coming and making it such a success!
