Alice in Wonderland

In November I told followers of a venture that my daughter in law, Lynsey (not to be confused with daughter Lynsey), had undertaken called The Whistling Bunting Travelling Tea Party. The plan was to offer for rent the beautiful vintage crockery that she and my son had collected for use at their own wedding. Well since then she has continued collecting vintage paraphernalia, exhibited at her first wedding fayre in Durham Castle and set up a gorgeous website to promote this venture. She has also recently taken part in a photo shoot with two very special people, Katy Howieson and Sally Thurrell-Hynes, themed along the lines of Alice in Wonderland.
Cakes by Daisy Cupcakes and iced biscuits by Lynsey
Katy is a talented designer (and fellow graduate from CCAD) who actually made the wedding hairpieces for Lynsey and her sister Carrie and Sally is the amazing photographer that helped make their special day even more special by taking some fabulous photographs.

Two of Katy's fascinators used in the shoot
Check out Katy's website What Katy Did Next and Sally's Sally T's Photography to see more of their creative genius.

These are just a selection of photos from the shoot which has been featured on today's Brides Up North wedding blog
