Yay! We made the regional finals of The Wedding Industry Awards 2019! It’s such an honour and such a prestigious award to make the shortlist for! It’s always absolutely terrifying putting yourself forward for anything (especially awards) so we’d love to say a HUGE thank you to all of our lovely couples who took the time to vote for us. We received such amazing feedback from everyone… as well as vendors we’ve been lucky enough to work with!
We know it sounds incredibly cheesy, but we genuinely are happy to just make regional finals (of course, we’d love to win… who wouldn’t?). It’s still a wonderful achievement and an amazing way to end the year with! Of course, being super nerds we were pretty thrilled to get a certificate for making regionals too (it’s currently in a chic gold frame awaiting a space on the wall).
Anyway, here are just a few of the gorgeous wedding cakes we created this year. From luxurious fondant frills to silky buttercream smoothered semi-naked cakes we’ve crafted some pretty centrepieces in the past 11 months!
The towering silver sequinned cake above was one of our largest. We created this for the lovely Katie & James who wanted a show-stopper for their glam wedding reception. It’s definitely one of our favourites. We’re huge fans of metallics, edible sequins, ruffles and modern marble effects so it checked all the boxes for us.
Thank you to the ever-talented Jo at Boutique Wedding for recommending us!
This wedding cake was the perfect mix of ornate and fun! Shyama and Lee wanted a three tier design that perfectly encompassed both of their personalities. They opted for bolder colours combined with a luxurious Rococo style. On top, nested behind their pretty sugar flowers, they added cute edible versions of themselves! We copied their outfits from photographs they were generous enough to send. Shyama wore a modern figure hugging gown that fluted out at the knee with a gold necklace and pretty earrings. Lee’s figure wears a traditional cravat with grey trousers and a rather dapper coat with tails! Delivered and set-up on a snowy morning at Rise Hall (could it have been more picturesque?).
We made Regional Finalists in The Wedding Industry Awards 2019!
Glistening edible sequins made a definite come back this year (yes!), which we couldn’t have been more happy about. The beauty above was perfect for a wedding with a touch of countryside luxury. It featured three sleek white tiers finished with toppled edible gold sequins and a tall crown of flowers nestled underneath by Fenwick Flowers! Standing proud in Saltmarshe Hall this wedding cake was the perfect addition to a modern country wedding.
Delivered to the absolutely serene and beautiful Little Wold Vineyard for Abbie and Jacob this was one pretty cake! Each tier featured a subtle blush and grey marble edged with 24k gold leaf. The front was then decorated with an eye-catching giant peach rose (sometimes called an expanding rose or exploding rose). This was one gorgeous design for the happy couple!
Wedding Cake Designer of the Year Regional Finalist for Yorkshire in The Wedding Industry Awards 2019!
We absolutely loved this semi-naked wedding cake delivered to Saltmarshe Hall! Samantha and Liam came along for their consultation which felt more like a fun afternoon tea! They had already spotted a cake we had created, but they were more than happy for us to get a little creative. With this in mind we added white macarons, fragrant white freesias and played with a wilder arrangement. We used the full stems of each thistle to add height and make each feel as though it were stretching out as through they were growing from the cake itself!
The above was such an elegantly simple cake delivered to Dunedin Country House for Lisa & Steven’s gorgeous day! Three bridal white tiers adorned with hundreds of hand-piped royal icing pearls sat atop a crown of fresh pretty roses and gypsophila. This design was a subtle twist on a traditional wedding cake. We kept the bright white tiers, but played with the floral arrangement for a more modern look. This pretty three tier was also inspired by a pearl-studded sugar flower edged design!
The below two tier was definitely another favourite for the year (though it’s SO hard to choose). We loved the wild look of this beauty with salal leaves, tiny spray roses, ferns, large blush pink roses, and fragrant sprigs of rosemary. We also love a glittering gold drip.
Once again thank you to all those who voted for us and provided positive comments to The Wedding Industry Awards 2019 to help us make finals! We’re so grateful! A lot of our couples were enjoying their Honeymoons or settling in married life so it meant a lot to the both of us. Wish us luck!
