Following are just a few of the lovely testimonials we have received from clients over the last few years.

Ali helped us to create a vintage afternoon tea for our wedding in West Sussex and she was so brilliant. We were pretty demanding, in that we needed China for 120 in only blue and pink pastel shades and Ali even sourced more China so that we could make this possible. The tables looked stunning and so many people commented on them. Ali was so thoughtful and communicative from when we first met to the day of the wedding and even helped our caterers with re-packing of the China afterwards. I would thoroughly recommend Ali and hope to be able to use her services again in the future!

Ali has the most gorgeous china! I think my particular favourite sets were the mint green one, and the teacup that was so intricately shaped, it reminded me of a large daisy, or lotus flower outline! Ali is also lovely, and so helpful, I’d highly recommend her.

We have had two Ali’s vintage tea parties – they are amazing! Ali thinks of everything; service is brilliant, food is just scrumptious, more than we could eat in one go, can’t wait to think of a reason for the next one!

Thanks again for doing such a wonderful job at my leaving party two weekends ago. The food was delicious and the tea party theme inspired – such amazing attention to detail, it all looked beautiful. I still have the lovely cake toppers and look at them every day!

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for providing Vintage Tea for my mum’s surprise 60th birthday, you did such a great job and we have had so many comments about how lovely it was. Your cakes were amazing and the set up and decor were just perfect.We couldn’t have asked for more. (Surprise 60th Birthday)

I had a wedding enquiry for 60 people and was looking to hire vintage china to serve the afternoon tea on. Ali was a delight to work with and supplied gorgeous three-tier stands in a variety of elegant patterns. My clients were thrilled and so was I.  I now use her services on a regular basis and would recommend her to anyone. She also has a great selection of other vintage items and a styling service that I’m eagerly anticipating using at my own wedding next year.


I recently worked with Ali on a shoot – she has such a wonderful array of supplies and made everything look beautiful – nothing was too much to ask, pleasure to work with such a lovely lady!
