Member Showcase: Cherry Topped

Today we continue our series of Showcase Weddings from our Members with the wedding of Clare & Adrian which was managed by Stacey-Marie of Cherry Topped Bespoke Weddings. We hand over to Stacey-Marie to explain more about this wedding.

Clare and Adrian wanted a subtle, magical and fun Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland theme, that would have accents of country vintage and a touch of tartan to honour Adrian’s heritage in amongst the design.


Some key elements that brought out their design were:

 Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

  • Homemade invitations, orders of service and table names using the character names and original Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland images
  • Vintage teapots filled with flowers as table centres to give a hint from the Mad Hatter’s tea party
  • Little notes on the teacups saying “Hide Me, Find Me” and “Eat Me”
  • Little notes on the bottles of wine saying “Drink Me”
  • Confetti in organza bags for guests with little notes saying “Throw Me”
  • Homemade cupcakes in boxes for each guest “Everybody has won and all must have prizes”
  • “Through the Looking Glass” style guest book, with a gilt frame, oversized White Rabbit and Mad Hatter hats and a Love Me Not teapot for guests to use as props



Country Vintage

  • Vintage rose “Belle rose” was used throughout, a rose that shares the nickname given to Clare by her sister
  • Flowers tied with ribbons hanging from the chandeliers
  • Birdcages filled with flowers accompanied by baroque painted birds
  • Vintage teacups filled with mini eggs to honour the Easter weekend
  • Ornate silver table name holders with vintage Alice in Wonderland images printed on aged cream table name card
  • Place names pegged to glasses with floral covered hearts, tulips and daisies
  • Shabby Chic wire hearts to hold the table plan cards, hung with ribbon
  • Rustic hog roast for dinner
