Afternoon Twee with Laura and Toby...

After out last real wedding blog post and request for any photographs of Vintage Twee's contribution to your events, I received a fabulous email from one of the loveliest brides of last year, Laura, who sent me some fantastic pictures of our work in action! We were so pleased to see these (especially since Laura's wedding was the epitome of Twee...lace, pearls, cake and tea parties galore!) that we just had to share them to give this year's bride to be's some real life inspiration for the big day. Thank you to Nigel Gray Photography for these beautiful images (contact details at the end of this post) and of course, Laura and Toby who were married on 15th June 2012 at Northbrook Park in Surrey.  

Laura and Toby ordered a variety of items from us which we created in their beautiful colour scheme which incorporated dusky pinks, turquoise and cream. They had touches of an Alice in Wonderland theme for their day, which meant lots of our infamous Eat Me Party Picks and Drink Me Tags - yey! We custom made these in a larger size for them to be tied around the necks of the wine bottles. We also adapted our popular Love Quote Flags to read quotes from Alice in Wonderland, and these were placed perfectly in vintage teacups provided by Teaspoon Events and stunning flower displays, created by Laura's friend Fiona Woolley.


We made some sweetie jar labels in dusky pink and ivory with a pearl heart embellishment and these featured on the jars of retro sweets on offer for the lucky guests. Our Doily Tags and cupcake sticks also decorated the delicious display of cupcakes, jammie dodgers (my all time childhood favourite!), biscuits and Victoria Sponge cakes, all made by Laura's mother in law Christine – and an amazing job she did!

Laura and Toby also had our Vintage Inspired Wedding Guestbook and Keepsake Box featuring on their guestbook table, which we customised with a special tag with their names and wedding date on there. Guests placed tags from their wish tree into the box which made a lovely keepsake for the couple and holds all their messages of love from friends and family. 

We so much enjoyed creating these items for Laura and Toby and these photographs from their wedding day illustrate perfectly how the smallest of details can add the finishing touches. We had to also show you photos of the little ones, Alfie and Charlie, who looked so cute in their Page Boy outfits with white plimsolls and socks – children at their finest :)

We loved working with Laura as she has an especially keen eye for design and details, having her own textile art business! Take a look at her website here: www.laurarosetextiles.co.uk

So a massive thank you to Laura and Toby for enabling Vintage Twee to add these special touches to your wedding day – we loved working with the colours so much it was one of those orders we were reluctant to let go of!!!! :)

Congratulations to you both on your wedding day!
