In recognition of the late Queen Elizabeth II 👑, Allely Estate held a Royal High Tea afternoon to celebrate her majesty’s life. Attendees dusted off their weekend glad rags, dressed in their best afternoon outfits befitting a royal celebration and enjoyed a splendid afternoon of high tea and bubbles in our gorgeous Villa and surrounding gardens, fit for the Queen.
From a delectable, delicious selection of smoked chicken pinwheels, yummy cream cheese cucumber sammies, salmon crostini, jam pennies, scones with jam & cream, delicious cupcakes from Miss Melicious Cupcakes and more there was no thinking about the high tea diet! Our chefs at Allely Estate did themselves proud – crumbs were all that was left.
While the gardens and company could well have been enough a guest appearance by the ever-charming Anita Wigli’t as “The Queen”, from Ru Pauls Drag Race was the icing on the cupcake – accommodating all her subjects with an audience and photos – such a delight!
So great to have Cheryll Martin, recent recipient for a QSO from the Queen for her voluntary services to the community in our company to. Cheryll is the amazing mother of our Event & Venue Manager – Melissa Fleming.
Lovely to have memorable stories shared by those who attended of previous birthday celebrations and weddings held or attended by them at Allely Estate.
Those who bought a Royal Ticket with bubbles could not help themselves in purchasing bottles of more bubbles to share! Bottoms Up!
Melissa and her team organised and delivered this event within 2 weeks of initiative. Allely Estate are renowned for delivering AMAZING events with short notice. Athina and the team delivered the wedding for Jony & Alistair within one month – a wedding that went on to become the NZ Bride & Groom Wedding of the Year.
