The invites have been sent, the flowers are arranged, the tables have been set and gorgeous guests a set to arrive. With inspiration of pretty garden teas with pastel blue hues and shimmers of mirroring the incredible vendors put together something from a dream. The colour scheme set the affair in soft blues, white, mirrors, glass and silver. Guests were treated to exquisite cupcakes and a feast for the eyes with divine styling and florals.
For this divine Bridal High Tea we paired two of our most favourite pieces together! Gorgeous bride-to-be Ayla wore our signature Ballerina skirt in the softest of mints and our divine Audrey Chantilly-Style Lace Bodice in a soft ivory for a fun and oh-so-chic Bridal Shower look. With stunning Goddess worthy Hair and Makeup by Velbella.
Nina of Nina Angela Photography and Flowers not only photographed the shoot, she also styled the floral arrangements! The shoot, inspired by sparkle and glamour with florals reminiscent of garden teas evoked a palette of palette of white, soft blue, glass, silver, and mirrors. Nina used vintage silver teapots as vases, noting, “I chose the softest blue hydrangeas with white Roses and lisianthus along with delicate trails of Ivy to finish the look.”
Paired with the incredible styling of Moments In Vintage creating the perfect high tea with plenty of sparkling details fit for a beautiful bridal shower.
The guests were sent the perfect Powder Blue invitation from the ‘Edwina’ range by Invite with Style who also created the divine Menu and Placecards with calligraphy by Ally Dunlop.
Two varieties of cupcakes, firstly, white chocolate, lemon and poppy seed cupcakes were covered in white fondant and airbrushed with a white lustre dust. They were then topped with an edible crystal jewel to compliment the aptly named “Begitta” cake.
Secondly, melt-in-the-mouth rich vegan chocolate cupcakes were donned with a luscious swirl of vegan chocolate coconut ganache.
What an absolutely perfect High Tea spread, perfect for the gorgeous Bride-to-Be to entertain her beautiful friends, family and maids.

We are so excited and tres flattered to have been featured on the wonderful Polka Dot Bride once again! We absolutely love their gorgeous site full to the rim with divine wedding inspiration and are so honoured to have the opportunity to showcase this stunning shoot we got to work on with some of Brisbane's most talented vendors!
Head on over to http://www.polkadotbride.com/2013/12/peach-apricot-wedding-ideas/ to view the divine write up on Polka Dot Bride.
Our darling photographer Amy tells Ms Polka “For this shoot, we wanted to create an atmosphere where vintage meets romance. Our team used shades of apricot and peach for a soft, airy look to the décor"
We spent a little while deliberating on which gown would suit this gorgeous theme, we wanted something a little bit modern with a touch of traditional so we went with our darling "Fleur" lace top and a sumptuous full skirt of tulle. The perfect ensemble for a classic garden wedding. Lace is such a beautiful touch to any wedding as it is always timeless and forever loved by guests. We adore the Fleur bodice with its subtle hints of lace, a fashion-forward high-neck front and delicate low back its perfect amount of sheer and covered with a stunning hand beaded lace at the neck that adds a touch of depth. We wanted to add a touch of sparkle and a little more glam so we went with the divine hand-beaded "Lumière" headpiece with lace appliqué to tie in with the stunning gown. Each of these headpieces take a minimum of 10 hours to produce, hand-made and beaded right here in Brisbane, Australia with stunning pre-designed or custom-designs available. For more headpieces have a peek at our E-Boutique or email email@example.com for a custom design quote.
