Deirdre and Andrew’s Wedding

Deirdre and Andrew were married in May at the Cliff at Lyons (Village at Lyons ) and we were delighted to be part of their wonderful day. Our collection of vintage props were very much in keeping with the old world charm of this venue. They proved to be a real talking piece on the day.

Style Shoot At The Village At Lyons.

We were delighted to be invited by the wedding team at The Village At Lyons to help with their style shoot to launch their stunning new venue. This new venue is perfect for smaller more intimate weddings.

Downton Abbey was our inspiration for this shoot  so we  added a little old world charm with china as place setting and our exquisite selection of silver and cut glass for floral displays.

A fabulous vintage tea party reception is a great way to greet your guests on arrival at your wedding venue. Hiring the china is only the first step then you need to think about styling the table keep it simple yet eye-catching. Dress the table with lace to keep with the vintage theme. Add a little height with some candles and raising a display of some of your special pieces of china off the table.                                                                Your food can be as extravagant or a simple as you like. From dainty sandwiches, cupcakes and macaroons to naked cakes. Display these on some vintage cake stands for a truly afternoon tea experience.
