When I was asked to supply vintage china and accessories  for a very special afternoon tea to celebrate the Royal Wedding at the beautiful Galgorm Resort & Spa I was delighted as I love all things Royal! I was a huge Diana fan back in the day and wrote to her on a number of occasions and was always very excited to receive a reply back from Kensington palace!

I also sent cards & letters to William & Harry when they lost their mother as I was so heartbroken at what had happened and received a lovely thank you letter from St James’s Palace.

C40804C6-3E08-45B5-858F-D5DABBD34558I have a lovely collection of old vintage tins and memorabilia  featuring the Queen so decided to set up a display of these in the foyer where the guests arrived for their afternoon tea. I also had bought a tin of the special edition Royal Wedding tea which  Fortnum & Mason released specially to celebrate Harry & Meghan’s wedding so I included  it in the display as well.

Guests were greeted on arrival with a glass of prosecco and I displayed my daughter’s beautiful Manolo Blahnik wedding shoes here in a glass dome which proved to be a great talking point! Although I did get a text from my daughter asking was that her precious wedding shoes she’d just seen on my instastories and did I have a security guard next to them! 😂😅

There were large screens set up at each end of the room so that guests were able to watch the wedding from start to finish.

Gemmas Cakes had made the most stunning tiered wedding cake decorated with fresh flowers and every guest was given a beautiful little box with a piece of wedding cake as they left which was a really lovely touch!

It really was the most magical day in every way and so wonderful to see Harry & Meghan’s evident joy and happiness as a married couple. And how very proud would Diana have been to see her two lovely sons together on such a wonderful occasion 💙💙

    1. Thanks Aly! Always feel so sad that she didn’t get to see her boys grow up. She’d be so proud of them and her beautiful grandchildren 💖👑

  1. You’re really cute! What magnificent presentation! What can I said? All around the world people celebrate this romantic wedding….include here, in Argentina, my country…God bless this couple and congratulations to you!

  2. What a precious event and as always with very good taste!
      It fascinates me to see things of yours and I say oh! I have an equal and you always inspire me, I love to follow you but sometimes it is not so easy to express my emotions in English.
    I am glad that this event has arisen for you, after the departure of your dear mother, I think that this has been good for you to regain strength.
    A big hug XX

      Mª José
