A few weeks ago I received a very prestigious invitation to attend and photograph a Royal Wedding Tea Party thrown by the very lovely Faye from The Afternoon Tea Party. I knew it would be a lavish affair, full of glamorous ladies and vintage loveliness – how could I resist?  On the morning of April 29th, I put on my best party dress, polished my camera and set off to Faye’s house…

Just check out the tea table which became more and more laden with home-baked goodies as people arrived.  Faye’s vintage crockery, pearls and cake stands looked so pretty and I just love the hand stitched heart cake covers.

Even Aidan and Alfie enjoyed the wedding and wholeheartedly agreed that all the ladies in attendance looked like princesses.  Here they are practicing their saluting in their new Royal Wedding t-shirts.
