Inspired by Raphael
Taking inspiration from the lavish wedding banquets depicted by Renaissance Master, Raphael, Blue Strawberry’s vision was brought to life with a unique wedding breakfast experience, set beneath a dreamy floral canopy.

“The Timeless Romantics event was just stunning, from start to finish. It was wonderful to see The V&A dressed for a wedding ceremony, complimented by the most beautiful banquet, creatively and stylishly presented as a station – perfect for standing guests to mingle. The food itself really was delicious and utterly spectacular.”
