Portrait by Richard Nicholson

Hope and Greenwood is a sweet shop in London set up Husband-and-wife owners Miss Hope and Mr Greenwood, to celebrate British confectionery. The shop itself celebrates the by-gone era with glass jars of candy lining the walls.

It’s the perfect place to get inspiration for a retro sweets table at your wedding.

The Hope and Greenwood website even has a wedding page where you can mail order your candy. Some of the sweets come with lovely background stories which make them even more difficult not to fall for. For example here’s the Cherry Love Me Trues

There is a 19th century English tradition in which a procession of singing maidens form an arch of cherry blossom, a symbol of fertility and innocence, through which passed the available young men of the village.

‘Come hither, sweet sir
And take this cherry fine,
Love me true the live long day
My winsome Valentine!’

Or the Rosebud funbag

In days of yore it was the custom to tie a velvet pouch of rose petals under your coat to attract a lover; so, should you be feeling amorous, a bag of delicately fragranced Rosebuds nestling in your trouser pocket should make you irresistible.

They also make Strawberry swirl Lollipops which you can personalise with your names and the date of the wedding.

They’d look great on a summer fete candy buffet. Again, I turn to Amy Atlas for the ultimate in sweetie table inspiration:
