Hooray! Butler and Taylor got a wee mention in the Autumn issue of The Best Scottish Weddings magazine!

Read all about Lindsay and Steven's real-life wedding in the current issue. We had a rare old time seeing our vintage teapots being used as vases at the Finnie's wedding in April, Betsy the VW Campervan was also used on the day and we were spinning 78's on the gramophone during the drinks reception!

See below for a sneaky peak!

See below our vintage cake stands full to the brim with cupcakes!

The lovely photographs were taken by Christopher Currie, check out their website to see more snaps! Hopefully we will blog in more detail about Lindsay and Steven Finnie's wedding but in the mean time enjoy reading all about the day if you buy the magazine!

Wedding Fayre Fun!

Had a very busy day last Sunday at The Glasgow Girls Wedding Fayre at Partick Burgh Halls in Glasgow. Helping set out the china was Lindsey Finnie who hired our china for her own vintage-inspired wedding, earlier this year, so she was able to give a first-hand account to customers, as well as show them images of her wedding on her ipad. See below a romantic pic of Mr and Mrs Finnie with the Butler and Taylor VW Campervan! Photograph taken by Christopher Currie. We hope to blog about this wonderful wedding soon!

Lisa from The Little Cupcake Parlour supplied the beautiful cakes which we had to sample, of course -  ending up with edible glitter all over our faces!

See above and below pictures of our set up and Lisa's Cupcakes -

I managed to sneak off to visit the other exhibitors, seeing some familiar faces and making some new friends.
Tried this loveheart tablet (see below) from the Sixpenny Blue Studio. As well as making favours they also make some lovely handmade stationery.

Nearby our stand was the LookLook Digital Photobooth - lots of fun and lots of props to play with. Guests at your wedding would love this!

Also present, one of my favourite businesses - E.Y.ILOVE  This lovely couple make the most coolest wedding invites around. Claire and I have mentioned them before and it's worth revisiting their website and blog again - they are always adding new designs.

Many thanks to all of you who stopped to say hello and big thanks to the organisers of The Glasgow Girls Wedding Fayre - a great success once again!

We have a new website!

Goodness me, Butler and Taylor have been busy! As you probably all know, we have finally launched our new website! Yeeha! Claire and I are very proud of our site (designed by Sinewave Design) and we hope that everyone finds it inspiring and exciting. Here is a snap shot -

Last weekend we had a fun day at an intimate wedding fayre at the Ghillie Dhu in Edinburgh, hosting a stall displaying our own vintage wares for hire as well as our friend Julie's delightful cupcakes.

Claire behind our stall!

Julie's cakes in the box ready to be put on our cake stands! If you want Julie to bake you some cakes just email her at - julie.lockhart@hotmail.co.uk

Our vintage china teacups and saucers were also used for teas and coffees at the bar. See below photographs of the charming barmen with our china and all the lovely people drinking tea from our cups. Sorry for the flash photography - the Ghillie Dhu is a wonderful venue but the subdued lighting did not help my photography!

Claire's gramophone DJing during the bridal fashion show was also well received.

We met lots of other interesting business's on the day and particularly loved the Miss Dixiebelle bunch, they have a Vintage boutique in Edinburgh which you must visit and at the Ghillie Dhu last Sunday they were demonstrating retro hair styles and make up, they also had vintage style wedding dresses on show on the catwalk!

It doesn't stop there - this weekend Butler and Taylor will be at The Glasgow Girls Wedding Fayre in Partick Burgh Halls, Glasgow. See you there on Sunday the 4th of September, 12 noon.
