One of our favorite themed weddings was a Tea Party in the Garden. Benham Hall was turned into an angelic garden with white roses, peonies, dahlias, and sweet smelling freesia. Greenery included lush trees, eucalyptus and leather leaf.
The afternoon tea feast included a selection of posh sandwiches, delectable pastries and an abundance of sweet treats.
Savory finger sandwiches included cucumber with dill and smoked salmon finger sandwiches while the delectable pastries and sweet treats included chocolate orange and cranberry lemon mini scones, a variety of shortbreads and balsamic strawberry trifle. And of course…tea!
Guestbook included puzzle pieces where guests would write their “words of wisdom” for the first year of marriage. The reception ended with a game of “who knows who best”. Followed by a lovely send off with ribbons.
The bride and groom were absolutely stunning! The groom wore a charcoal gray suit, a polished and classic look for a garden party. The bride wore a simple but beautiful A-line dress with floral lace top and open back. The bridesmaids continued the garden party theme with blush dresses.
A tea party in the garden at Benham Hall is also a great theme for the bridal shower, bachelorette, or rehearsal luncheon!
