Wedding Inspiration: A Delicious, Vintage Afternoon Tea Party in a Monastery!

A delicious afternoon tea party with the sweetest of detail and all held in an incredible wedding venue, a monastery!

The shoot was based on a vintage afternoon tea concept with a particular focus on the idea of a garden party. The grounds of Mirfield Monastery are breathtaking and were the perfect setting.
Lace, pastels, dreamy florals and tasty treats set against the gorgeous greenery of the monastery grounds really brought the theme to life.
The main focus of the styling was the vintage theme coupled with highlighting this hidden gem of a venue in the prettiest way possible.
The table styling of both the tea trolley and the bistro table was done to show how eclectic colours, patterns and styles can complement each other just as well as a set colour palette or design.
Stunning blooms from Flowers @ 180; including a beautiful hanging floral hoop, pretty mismatched crockery from The Vintage House That Could and the most gorgeous afternoon tea delights from White Rose Cake Design were just some of the talented suppliers who helped pull the concept together with their creations.
Loving the tea-party vibe? Check out these super sweet features!
