Congratulations to Hannah & Ollie on their first wedding anniversary! We absolutely loved working on their Alice in Wonderland styled, Mad Hatter’s tea party wedding at Oddfellows wedding venue in Chester. They had a great team of wedding suppliers involved including the lovely Teresa C Photography, and fabulous cake designer Jane Reilly of Confetti & Crumbs.
Hannah & Ollie wanted to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere for their wedding day, filled with bright colours and beautiful summer flowers to reflect the season. And what better way is there to arrive at your wedding ceremony than travelling in a fabulous horse & carriage!
Our beautiful bride looked stunning in her elegant lace wedding dress and we designed a natural, hand tied bouquet for Hannah to hold. This bright, summer bouquet was filled with a vibrant mix of flowers including dahlias, delphinium, orchids, gerbera and roses.
For Ollie’s buttonhole we designed a cluster of deep pink orchids and blue delphinium with a vintage gold key to reflect the Alice in Wonderland wedding theme.
Oddfellows in Chester was the perfect wedding venue for their Mad Hatter’s tea party reception, the venue already features lots of quirky details and has a relaxed, informal atmosphere. We decorated each guest table with a selection of decorative china cups, tea pots, vintage style clocks, pocket watches and giant tea cups. The tea party props were decorated with natural moss and clusters of bright summer flowers.
To suit the Alice in Wonderland wedding theme and co-ordinate with the tea party table decorations we also designed moss table numbers and decorated each chair back with a hanging vintage key. It’s always nice to incorporate extra details, and to create custom pieces to match the table decor. If you are looking for ways to add extra special touches to your venue styling you may want to consider place settings, chair backs, style of place cards and table numbers.
