Hi lovely blog readers! In my daily duties as a wedding coordinator I see so many fabulous collections of vintage china which brides and grooms and their families have spent months delving through antique shops to discover. It is one of my favourite looks and with the vintage wedding trend still going strong, I have no doubt that vintage china will be a must-have item for many of you getting married in 2015 and 2015.

I remember a year or so ago on the blog one of the brides whose vintage wedding featured on the blog told me about a cupboard under the stairs which was full to bursting with a secret stash of cups and saucers she’d been collecting. Today’s blog post has as many ideas for a relaxed rustic wedding as that bride had teacups in her cupboard. Fact.
