Jennifer and Dave’s Vintage Wedding

Here at Vintage China Hire we cater for all types of weddings. Jennifer approached us looking to add a few vintage touches to her wedding at the lovely Tankerstown House. They were happy to do the styling themselves and we were happy as always to supply the props.8110c65b-7dd6-421d-8e36-f41a68efe48e

Having choosing the perfect venue Jennifer wanted to complement it with the right  styling. The china on the table looked amazing along with some vintage framed table numbers.

Colour trends for 2017  Lavender or lilac are very gentle and cool colours for a summer wedding. By adding little hints of purple it will work equally well for a winter wedding. Dress your bridesmaid’s in these lovely shades and if you want some  lavender touches for your groom give him a lavender boutonniere with a cool silk tie. Following through the same theme with your  flowers, cake and who doesn’t love these little cupcakes and macaroons. Love the soft romantic look of this collection enjoy.

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.
