Anyone for Tea?


vintage flair 1 001

As the trend for vintage weddings is set to continue why not add a little twist to the style by going for an Afternoon Tea theme.

At Gorgeous we are often asked how to put additional quirks and with the ever hopeful bride expecting beautiful weather the pretty touch of vintage crockery and cake stands can really add that special touch.

The theme can work equally well for large weddings in grand country houses as well as a more intimate … Continue reading >>

Kayley and John at Prested Hall 20th September 2014

This weekend saw the end to a relationship that started 18 months ago when I met Kayley at a wedding fair at Hall Place and she booked us immediately to secure her date in 2014.

Kayley had a very strong design in mind which featured silver birch vases.  This was our starter for ten!  After foraging in woods for bark, talking to local tradesmen and our wholesaler we eventually found some … Continue reading >>
