Calamitea Jane’s branding shoot

Calamitea Jane’s branding shoot

Photos are so so important to any business, no matter what you offer. If you don’t have some great photos to show off what you do, then you’re going to struggle more than your competitors. And that’s where I come in! 

When Karen, who runs Calamitea Jane’s Vintage Tea Parties & Events with her mum, Christine, told me she wanted to plan a branding shoot, I was all over it. 

I’ve known Karen for a while – she runs multiple businesses and is always interested in doing things differently – just like me! For this shoot, Karen wanted to show that you can embrace the vintage charm of Calamitea Jane’s without making your entire event vintage themed.

Whenever you hire Calamitea Jane’s to cater your wedding or event, you get their incredible vintage crockery as part of the package. And this doesn’t HAVE to be surrounded by floral table cloths and pretty doilies to make a statement – you can make Cream Tea work in almost any setting. And thank god for that, because -if we’re being honest- who doesn’t want Cream Tea at every event they go to?!

Karen enlisted the help of Rock the Day Styling‘s Laura, to create this shoot, which took place in Rock the Day’s studio. Laura went for rustic wooden furniture, elegant candle sticks, lots of greenery and soft, warm lighting, to show that Vintage Tea Parties can find their place in any setting! Vintage doesn’t have to be twee!

I especially loved the vintage Babycham coupe glasses – they look perfect next to Calamitea Jane’s gold-edge tea cups – and the amazing serving cart was another favourite! And then there was the food – DELICIOUS!

A highlight of branding shoots for me is getting to know the people behind a business – what drives them, what their vision was at the beginning of their venture and what they’ve learned along the way.

So thank you, Karen, for giving me an insight in to Calamitea Jane’s.

Oh, and for the scones!

Calamitea Jane’s provide a variety of menus, which each include dainty finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream & jam and a selection of cakes and/or pastries. What I particularly like about them (aside from their gorgeous set up) is that they also provide menus catering to special dietary requirements at no extra cost. To find out more, head to their website.
