If you’re looking for ways to put your own stamp on your big day, check out Wedding in a Teacup. Hester, a former fashion buyer, sources and designs items that will appeal to brides who want something less mass-produced and instead more personal.

I love styling and shooting for Wedding in a Teacup. I surround myself with pretty props and desirable items – plus, the props I select are often edible, so I make my way through a fair amount of macaroons, cupcakes and bon bons during a shoot!

Hester’s philosophy is that your thoughtfully selected decorations should carry on the memory of the wedding instead of being binned after the celebrations.
These antique-finish mini glass vases are a perfect example, and they’re my favourite new item on the site. You can picture them scattered around the tables for the wedding breakfast, and then being a stylish reminder of your day on a fireplace or bedside table. LOVE them.

These french soaps just look so … delectable. They’re just one of the many favour ideas from the site …

Traditional lovers’ knots make an unusual favour, and will get your guests entwined in conversation. There’s more than one theory about what ‘tying the knot’ means; I like the idea that it originated from tying lots of string knots to literally support the new marital mattress, before metal strung bed frames existed!

If you fancy these, keep an eye on the website – they’ll be available in the next few weeks.

Another string to Hester’s bow, is the bespoke wedding invites and rsvp cards. Here’s one of her new designs, aimed at music lovers. All can be fully personalised, and there’s a range designs to reflect your style or personality.

It was so hard to select which photos to include as there’s just so much lovely stuff to choose from. Go and have a look! www.weddinginateacup.co.uk
