Celebrate your wedding with a distinctly English tradition – an Afternoon Tea reception, with beautiful vintage china, elegant cutlery, along with dainty finger sandwiches, scones served with clotted cream and jam, along with scrumptious cakes. The vintage china that I provide is the very best quality, providing a wide range of styles through a palette of colours. There are currently 167 different teacup styles available to hire (February 2023). Everything that you need for an afternoon tea wedding reception can be provided – two and three tier cake stands, glass pedestal stands, teapots, cake/sandwich plates; crystal/vintage glass clotted cream and jam dishes, cream jugs and sugar bowls.
Every bride and groom wants to have a wedding that is truly unique to their special day, vintage china is the perfect way to help make your day totally unique, elegant and memorable, whether you’re having a tea station, Champagne and canapes as an entrée prior to your reception, having a prawn cup-tail as a starter, when you hold your afternoon tea wedding reception in a marquee, a hotel, a church hall or any other venue space, vintage china really gives a very special feel; adding the finishing touch to your wedding reception.
At The Vintage Tea Service I offer a dedicated and bespoke wedding service, providing you with an initial consultation (face to face or via Zoom) and then one further meeting to finalise details, (we will though, be in regular contact via email or messaging)to discuss and share the beautiful china and accessories you will use. At the initial consultation we’ll discuss about your design ideas, colour palettes and how best to maximise the beauty of your tables.
I love being at the centre of the organising and everything is about perfection for me and I know that on your wedding day, the only thing that matters is that everything is absolutely perfect, so I pride myself on working with you to make your wedding reception an amazing and central part of your special day. Your carefully curated wedding package will add an additional layer of beauty to the celebrations, whatever your budget. From small intimate weddings to larger ones, whatever size reception you are planning, a wedding reception with vintage china is going to give your day that bespoke, beautiful and elegant feel.
In addition to the consultations I offer a delivery and collection, also a set-up service too. (If you decide to book one of the wedding packages which includes the catering, the delivery, collection and set-up is included in the overall package price per guest.)
If you hire your reception vintage china from me, you, as the bride will have complimentary china on morning of the wedding to add that special touch to the day.
The Vintage Tea Service also provides the option for you to book your catering for your wedding reception. There are four wedding menus and four options for couples to choose from: Lace, Pearl, Sapphire or Diamond
