Vintage Afternoon Tea Weddings are perfect if you want to stick with tradition but with a difference. That's where the twist comes in!  Afternoon Tea is & always will be a British tradition & combining  it with your wedding gives it a subtletwist but still keeping it beautiful with your individual touches.The tradition of the afternoon tea dates back to the 18th Century when one of Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting, Anna Stanhope (the Duchess of Bedford) complained of a little 'sinking feeling' at about four o'clock in the afternoon. To revive herself, the Duchess had her servants bring her a pot of tea & a few breadstuffs and then soon began inviting her friends to join her for her additional meal in her room at Belvior Castle.  The traditional afternoon tea was born - and has become a  British institution.

Whilst we can't promise liveried footmen we can offer a little luxury & indulgence which will help to make your special day a very memorable one for you and your guests.
