alice in wonderland
Follow us down the rabbit hole for a whacky woodland wedding at the stunning Longton Wood! This Alice In Wonderland themed wedding is a sneak peek into the weird and wonderful mind of Lily Jones Events and her dream team of alternative wedding suppliers. Check it out for flamingo croquet, a tea party fit for the queen, and the ‘something blue’ dress of dreams.
More, more, more!
The nature of Alice in Wonderland means that you can be as wacky as you want to be and no one would bat an eyelid. If you want more, go for it.
Bright, deep colours
Bring the theme to life with rich tones. If you go too dark or too pastel, it can lose it’s ‘pazazz’.
The Perfect Venue
A beautiful venue does half of the work for you. Venues like Longton Wood are very affordable and add the ‘wow’ factor to your day.
First things first, let’s talk about this alternative wedding wear!
Amie looked incredible in this Millia London blue wedding dress, a bespoke headpiece by Miss Ava’s Millinery featuring floating playing cards and a teacup. The look is topped off with stunning hand-painted shoes by Miss Mollys.
Kaii is also killing it in this baby blue suit, with a burnt orange shirt, floral tie and white tophat. What a look!
The hair and makeup, created by Charlotte Jefferson, were incredibly fitting with the editorial style of this shoot. She brought out the blue of the wedding wear perfectly in the striking eye makeup!

The tea party table, created by Pretty Little Tea Co with styling elements by Lily Jones Events, was a spread fit for a Queen (of hearts)! The vintage teacups, plates, cake stands and teapots matched perfectly with the theme and the stunning mini cakes, scones and cupcakes they made as well. The handmade ‘drink me’ favours sat beautifully alongside the hand-calligraphed place names and other items by Whilst Jude Sleeps.
The flowers by Eliza Rose Artisan Florist were full of rich jewel tones – reds, pinks, blues and purples – and most were grown by Jo herself at her flower farm. Jo created a stunning hand-tied bouquet reminiscent of the ‘wild’ style of the venue and the shoot as a whole. She also created some beautiful bud vase arrangements for the tea party table.

Lily Jones Events created an organic balloon garland to adorn the sailcloth marquee by Penny Events Co, which fitted perfectly in among the trees of Longton Wood. The balloon arch captured the colours of the shoot and featured lots of hanging wisteria and giant playing cards. Penny Events Co also set up their beautiful bell tent honeymoon suite which takes glamping to a whole new level of comfort!
