High Tea Par-Tea!

The sorts of ladies drawn to High Tea parties have a ridiculous love for pretty desserts, gorgeous vintage settings, tasty treats, fabulous outfits and a swishy decor. Mary has hosted an abundance of High Tea parties - be they in the form of bridal showers, baby showers, birthday parties or just 'we love cake parties'. The great thing about High Tea parties at Mary's is that she allows you to bring your personal flair to the fete. We've had brides bring personalised balloon installations, baby showers bring towers of nappy cakes, birthday parties bring unique favours for guests and more. Your imagination is the limit as to what you can create in the space.

Recently a crew from OIP (Oh It's Perfect) came into the tea house and lavishly decorated the space to create an exclusive High Tea soiree. We bribed them with cake for the photos so you can drool over them below.

Romance is not dead photoshoot

Mary and her friends wanted to sprinkle French romance in their recent photoshoot. It celebrated the joys of early romance: romantic getaways with your loved one, gifts of roses, breakfast in bed and delicious food experiences (that is where Mary comes in).

Here are some of the beautiful images.

We partnered with the following wonderful humans and businesses: 
Concept & Photography: @sephoryphotography
Hair & Make Up: @suzyselamakeup
Invitations: @giantinvitations and @adorninvitations
Flowers: @chloelashay_florist and @hayleybuttons
Dresses: @raffaeleciucabridal and @berta
Cakes / High Tea: @maryeatscake
Jewellery: @loveonjewellery
Model: @oliviaa.williams and @giant_mgmt
Venue: @montdusoleil

And as with any photoshoot, the real work happens behind the scenes.

So a quick shout out to the women and men that woke up at the very 'non romantic' 4am mark to make this happen, held the photography umbrella for hours, ruffled the bed perfectly for the 'messy not messy' look, touched up the model 1039329 times and sprinkled icing sugar on the cake.

Here's some behind the scenes captured in between copious coffee runs and macaron munching.
