Every so often a white on white cake comes along and we get oh so excited. Colour is wonderful and we are (in case you’ve not noticed) advocates of a good amount of pink, but a fully white wedding cake just exudes elegance! With this in mind here’s a gorgeous white hydrangea blossom wedding cake we created recently for Alice and Matthew’s big day at Elsham Hall in Lincolnshire!
Just over 370 white hydrangea blossoms (one of our ultimate favourite flowers) adorn this three tier design. Each hydrangea was rolled, cut, detailed, ruffled and shaped one by one. What’s crazy is that this can take longer than making a lots of huge fully wired and dusted sugar peonies! Once made we left each blossom to set at difference angles. This helps give them a more individual look!
We love how the blossoms resemble a flurry of butterflies settling onto the cake. Perfect for a stylish country hall wedding!
Inside the cake flavours included our own fruit cake (filled with Hennessy Cognac for a nice light boozy treat). Another tier was a zesty Sicilian Lemon filled with homemade lemon curd and infused with Sicilian lemon buttercream. Finally, our Classic Strawberry (our version of a British favourite… Victoria Sponge) was the final tier flavour.
Chic White hydrangea blossom wedding cake!
The beautiful florals were by Jo and her fabulous team from The Wedding and Flower Boutique (you can also find them via Instagram here) in Lincolnshire! They’re so elegant and carefree at the same time. We love the crisp white large roses paired with playful daisies alongside soft lisianthus florals and dainty foliage!
These pretty bouquets also featured white veronica flowers nestled amongst the roses, astrantias, and daisies. The beautiful fresh whites of the flowers and vibrant greenery all blended together perfectly for a wonderfully romantic reception. We also loved the wooden elements dotted around from the rustic log slices to the fun wooden crates!
If you’re looking for a stunning country venue in the Yorkshire and Lincolnshire area that’s surrounded by adorable animals and gardens we’d definitely suggest giving Elsham Hall a look! There are cute donkeys, a resident peacock, lots of sheep, beautiful secret garden-like areas… perfect!
