Heiress Tea Party Styled Shoot

Relax like royalty before your wedding.

With the birth of the new princess in England, we’ve got royalty on the brain. So when we saw the elegance and sophistication in this styled shoot at Malmaison by Jayne Heir Weddings—from the rich jewel-toned hues of the ruby garden roses and amethyst calla lilies to the gold-painted teapot cake—we knew we had to share it.

Jayne Heir Weddings owner Jamésa Adams says, “The Heiress Tea Party is simply the whimsical fairy tale moment that you have with your bridesmaids before you take that final step in marrying your Prince Charming.” Here’s a bit of inspiration for how you and your bridesmaids can enjoy the royal treatment before you head down the aisle.
