Afternoon Tea Wedding Inspiration Fit For Kensington Gardens

English Garden Afternoon Tea Wedding Inspiration – Lorin Kelly Photography – Bowties and Bouquets – Bridal Musings 4

An English garden-inspired wedding featuring butter-yellow flowers, a sweet bridal sunhat, poofy sleeve wedding dress & a proper afternoon tea? Just our cuppa’!

While I may currently be basking in the rose gardens of Portland, our origins here at team Bridal Musings are in England. Anytime we get a little taste of proper English wedding ideas we’re so tickled! Planner & designer Bowties & Bouquets alongside photographer Lorin Kelly have transported us to an afternoon tea with Edwardian & Victorian-era details. One moment while we gather our straw sun hats & lacey gloves…

With garden party weddings on the rise, this editorial is prime for inspiration not only incorporating classic & timeless wedding details fit for Kensington Gardens but new trends that make our fashion-girl hearts sing.

One, the cottagecore bridal hat (the exact style that we featured on our favorite bridal hats list!) is perfect for an afternoon tea party wedding under the sun. Two, the stunning puff-sleeve Leanne Marshall gown that is altogether timeless, romantic, fashion-forward and dramatic in every possible way.

From Bowties & Bouquets

This Editorial was designed around enjoying a splendid afternoon tea in the garden with elegant, delectable and romantic elements.

The Edwardian Era is known for its beautiful and lavish garden parties, it is light and bright, full of love, laughter and fun. This design was inspired by whisking you away to a whimsical experience at Kensington Gardens with a nod to Victorian Vintage-inspired fashion.

It’s ethereal, vintage, fine art, full of connection and fluidity, and inspired by emotional love stories! Imagine running through the garden with your love and best friend, surrounded by luscious greenery, the feeling of their hand in yours, and ending the day enjoying a quiet moment at afternoon tea.

We love the vintage and ethereal touches like the Victorian gloves, the straw hat sewn on an antique Victorian straw maker, the off-the-shoulder gown, the intimate afternoon tea for two, the beautiful tablescape featuring antique mix & match floral china!

We hope you are inspired by this garden romance of a wedding and fall in love with everything that we love about afternoon tea and ethereal romance!
