Back by popular demand, Bridal Indulgence bridal boutique in Hampshire and Surrey, alongside other local wedding suppliers, teamed up with Four Seasons for the second year of Brides-to-Be for Afternoon Tea.
Brides-to-Be for Afternoon Tea
Brides gathered within the Four Seasons’ historic walled gardens to experience a luxurious wedding wonderland and find out how they could create their very own outdoor wedding.
Think flower arches from Paula Rooney, a prosecco wall (yes, you read that right) and a gin bar.
Wedding cakes that closely resembled artistic sculptures, Bubblegum Balloons, striking LED trees supplied by Twilight Trees, music by Tristan Mackay, afternoon tea courtesy of the Four Seasons Hampshire and, of course, fashion shows showcasing the hottest bridal trends from Bridal Indulgence and Tilly Mint.

Your Q&A with Bridal and Outdoor Wedding Expert
Following the fashion show and afternoon tea, the wedding experts took centre stage for a Q&A session. For those who missed the event, Bridal Indulgence owner Kerri has kindly agreed to answer some of the FAQs she received on the day.
How can brides accessorise their outdoor wedding looks?
Outdoor weddings are the perfect excuse for a flower crown, and we have the perfect range for both the relaxed and elegant bride. Sophie and Luna flower crowns add that pop of colour that looks great at outdoor weddings and are perfect for the modern, alternative bride who wants to make a statement.
Or, if you’re after something more elegant but just fitting for your outdoor wedding, try our delicate flower crowns by Miranda Templeton.
How’s best to cover up in the evening?
Savin London’s Sabella Jacket is the perfect evening cover-up during your outdoor wedding. Pair this leather and floral embroidered tulle biker jacket with a stunningly simple wedding dress like Victoria by Savin London for a day-to-night transition you’ll love.
What wedding shoes are best for an outdoor wedding?
I’d always recommend wearing block shoes or flats if you’re planning an outdoor wedding! Charlotte Mills has the most beautiful choices. Every pair of Charlotte Mills shoes are complete with a sixpence in the sole too, for extra luck while you walk down the aisle.
Lots of our brides go for block and flat shoes anyway as they won’t kill your feet and they’re perfect for when you want to dance the night away!
