Blog / Project photo shoot with Tillies Teas, Haverhill, Suffolk

A while ago, I stumbled across a new company who are local to me in Haverhill, Suffolk.  Tillies Teas is a family run business supplying traditional, delicious afternoon teas for any occasion.  They create gorgeous cakes and sweet treats, and delicate finger sandwiches all presented on beautiful vintage china and cake stands.  What a treat for a special birthday or even a hen do!  I contacted Angela and Nicola, and asked if i could come along and take some photos.  Very kindly, they said yes!

I am, slowly but surely, doing a project of interesting suppliers to the wedding industry.  It’s not strictly all wedding folk, Tillie’s Teas aren’t wedding suppliers as such, but they could be for sure!  I wanted to get in touch with people doing interesting things that are relative to me and my work, and I wanted to do some portraits of them.  For my other life over at I always need new images, and shooting portraits of any kind like this really helps to keep my creative juices flowing.  Plus I get to meet new local business people who I can recommend onto any wedding clients that ask for help.  Bonus all round!  I’m hoping to do a few more soon so perhaps then I’ll do a little round up of my favorites.

I really enjoyed meeting the ladies at Tillies Teas, and am really grateful that they let me into their home to boss them about and make them hold tea cups for photos! Thanks very much ladies, I really appreciate it.  If you want to find out more about Tillies Teas and what they offer, pop on over to to find out more.
