I beamed when I first looked at these pictures - this wedding is right up my street, and thanks to Jo Photo I get to share these with all of you.
Elizabeth and Jess were married in the Spring at Maryville, Tennessee.
Elizabeth and her mother, Leslie, planned a small intimate 2 o’clock afternoon wedding with English adornments to include personalized doilies under each plate with each guest’s name on them, lumps of sugar and vintage decorative tea bags.
The bride’s veil was hand made by the groom’s mother, and there were antique hankerchiefs for ‘happy tears’ during the wedding ceremony.
The guest seating cards were hand made on vintage paper and hung on twine across antique wooden screen doors.
The reception catering included scones, marmalades, delectable tea sandwiches, and hot tea provided in vintage tea pots. The bride and groom’s teapot was hand painted by the bride’s grandmother.
An assortment of blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry jams were favors for the guests - the berries were hand picked by the bride’s mother and father months before the wedding, canned in their home, and personalized for Elizabeth’s wedding day!
I love that this wedding includes a photobooth…
This is a bride after my own heart…tea, mix match and a photobooth. Genius!
Vintage tea cups, finger sandwiches, jam scones and of course Champagne make the perfect Afternoon Tea.
You can adapt this theme by using teapots and tea cups as vases, add a final course of coffee or tea with a scone or my absolute favourite idea is to serve your champagne out of vintage teapots into your guest’s very own vintage tea cups (credit for this idea has to go to my future mother-in-law)
So very British and so very scrummy.
