Mad Hatters Tea Party Themed Wedding

Still keeping up with the wedding themed posts - this weekend's wedding cake was based on a sketch drawn by the bride.

I've been so excited about this cake since our initial meeting back in September last year for so many reasons - the whimsical style of the cake was a massive attraction for me but also because the bride was getting married in a cave... yes, a cave!! All sparkly and lit up and because she had to wear a hard hat, rather than settling for a bog standard issue plain yellow she custom made one that was covered in diamantes. Love it!

After many hours of work with lots of little details such as a pocket watch, caterpillar, tea cup with dormice and a plate of cakes the final cake looked like this:

Weddings & Brooch Bouquets

Wedding season is really upon us now and I absolutely love weddings. Meeting up with new brides to be is always a massive deal for me as I'm so keen to chat about everything to do with their wedding.

In the past I ran a couple of florist shops and weddings were always a massive highlight for me, from the initial planning stage of the colours & designs right up to the day itself. It really is a great honour to be able to be involved in a couples special day.

From time to time I really do miss floristry, now that the wedding season is in full swing I'm often reminded of how beautiful and exquisite the displays are through the powers of Facebook and Twitter.

One of my very good friends has set up a beautiful brooch bouquet company specialising in weddings and she makes some amazingly gorgeous designs. This is one of my favourites:
