Its now just a week before the very first of many Altar-ed Events to hit London and we’re super excited! Brought to you by myself and luxury wedding planner Mary Lee Herrington of Forever and Ever Events, this Vintage Bridal Tea Party is going to knock your socks off! Bringing together what I can only describe as the wedding industry dream team, brides and their maids, mums and friends are invited to get dolled up, learn makeup and hair tricks & tips, and partake in an evening of girly lavishness. Guests are encouraged to arrive dressed in their vintage finest. So what should you expect?
Celebrity makeup artist Claire Hanson and her team (whose clientele include Kate Winslet, Jon Bon Jovi and Nicole Richie) will demonstrate how to achieve vintage looks in hair and makeup from specific vintage eras and provide hands-on tutorials to guests. Milliner Edwina Ibbotson, whose work appears regularly in Vogue and Brides magazine, will demonstrate how to finish a vintage look with pieces from her bespoke millinery collection. In addition, music agency, Sternberg Clarke, will provide live music to add to the ambience of a vintage themed event, while The Vintage Table, Restoration Cake and Hello!Lucky Stationery will provide their finely decorated products to showcase the décor of a vintage themed event. Shell de Mar Photography, with their relaxed reportage photography and whimsical edge, will photograph the tea party and provide a Photo Booth with vintage props for guests to have fun and take photos after their makeovers. I Do Films Videography will shoot on vintage Super 8 film to document the evening and luxury florist Wild About Flowers will provide additional decorations. Finally, for the curious seekers or those of you in the market for diamonds can have a consultation with luxury jeweller Jon Keith Diamonds, whose pieces are all made bespoke to order.
Tea sandwiches, cakes and wines will be served, courtesy of Leith’s at Dartmouth House and Restoration Cake. You’ll leave with a free make-up, hair and styling consultation and quirky goodie bag and loads of ideas for your big day.
