On Wednesday I had so much fun.  I drove up to Lancashire to meet Mark Tattersall, we had lunch and caught up, then we set up a mini photoshoot.  Mark took the pictures and I brought along a boot full of ‘bits and pieces’ from my home, some beautiful English sweetpeas and delicious cupcakes.

I suppose in the world of weddings you would say I ‘styled’ the shoot, but it feels rather odd, as it was more just a collection of pretty things made to look nice.  With this gorgeous (and sometimes stifling) hot weather we’ve had, I wanted to create a small lazy summer picnic.

I’m so excited to share these beautiful, elegant and understated vintage pieces from Pretty Vintage.  As well as a gorgeous selection of earlier vintage crockery (think 1900’s – 1940’s) Lucy also hires out picnic blankets, deck chairs, lawn games and tin baths.  I’m in heaven!

Dainty teacups and saucers.

Tin baths and glass vases.

Vintage croquet set.

Earthenware pots and vases.

Deck chairs, bunting and picnic blankets.

I can’t believe that my hen party was nearly two weeks ago now – where does the time go!  It was organised by two friends of mine, with a lovely lunch and afternoon tea, but the main part was a gorgeous woodland walk before having hot chocolate with marshmallows in a bell tent deep in the wood.  It was perfect.

A big thank you to May and Jane for organising it, and to my friends Maria, Sophia, Kate and my mom and sister Izzy for coming to share the afternoon with me.  It was lovely knowing nothing about what was planned, and a really special way to celebrate getting married.
