Your Wedding Reception
Every bride and groom wants to have a wedding that is truly unique to their special day, vintage china is the perfect way to help make your day both unique and memorable, whether you're holding your afternoon tea wedding reception in a marquee, a hotel or any other venue space, vintage china really gives a very special feel.
At The Vintage Tea Service I offer a dedicated and bespoke wedding service, providing you with an initial consultation (face to face or via Zoom) and then one further meeting to finalise details, (we will though, be in regular contact via email or messaging) and the beautiful china and accessories you will use. At the initial consultation I will discuss with you about your design ideas, colours and how best to maximise the beauty of your tables.
In addition to the consultations I offer a delivery and collection, also a set-up service too. And if you hire your vintage china from me, the bride can have complimentary china on morning of the wedding to add that special touch to the day.
For weddings in the spring/summer 2022/23, I can cater up to 100 guests (with cutlery), up to 130 guests (if knives aren't required).
Every guest will have a place setting that includes:
* a trio (cup, saucer and tea plate
* a silver plated knife, cake fork and teaspoon
Round 6ft tables will have in addition to the place settings:
3 x 3 tier cake stands
3 tea pots
5 sandwich/cake plates
3 x cream jug and sugar bowl
3 x clotted cream bowl
3 x jam bowl
If you are planning on having a long table for all your guests, we will discuss the number of china items you require each guest/group of guests.
In addition to the above, you can also have optional extras: napkins and 8" plates are available.
If you want to come up with your own configuration for the tables, just let me know.

Table Name Place Labels
New to The Vintage Tea Service are name place labels, perfect to direct your guests to their seat at your wedding reception and a beautiful memento of your wedding day and they finish off the design of your tables. The name place labels come in a range of styles, colours, both in terms of card and ink; along with a choice of ribbons too.
Girl Time - The Morning of Your Wedding
Those final hours with the girls are probably the most memorable moments of your day; the laughter, the smiles, the 'knowing' and the sisterhood.
Did you know I offer complimentary vintage china in the hours up to your wedding ceremony; it's a chance for you, your bridesmaids and your girlfriends to enjoy those infamous girly moments over tea, cake, giggles and chat.
Thank you very much. The tables looked beautiful and everyone commented on how stunning the china was.
It was everything we wanted.

Create a Tea Station for Your Wedding
Why not create a tea station (with/without cake) to provide refreshment for your wedding guests to tide them over until your main reception. It's a lovely way to build individuality into your wedding. Each guest will receive a teacup, saucer (and teaspoon) and if cake is being served, a tea plate and a cake fork (if required). Use 2 and 3 cake stands to present gorgeous cakes and pastries and gorgeous glass pedestal stands to showcase larger cakes.
