Real Wedding

 

Simple pleasures:
Katie and Ed met at work but nothing happened between them until sometime later, even though they worked on the same floor. “Ed runs the IT department and I’m a nurse and even though Ed claims he hadn’t noticed me until about a year after I started there, I was instantly attracted to him,” says Katie.

Our magazines are packed to the brim with expert advice! 

Q: We're great cake lovers and want a showstopper for our wedding that's right on trend. What would you suggest?
Helen says: Large three- or four-tier cakes are still the most popular choice, however if you're having a more intimate wedding, two tiers can look just as fabulous dressed using a mix of beautiful sugar flowers and natural dried ones to add height. Other key trends include:

  • Pretty florals using stunning dried, edible and handmade sugar flowers are very popular. I absolutely love creating sugar flowers as they are the perfect addition to a beautiful cake. Team them with a little pampas or dried bunny tail grass for a stunning design that your guests will be swooning over.
  • Decorative details such as marbling with metallics and different textures like ruffles are also a big talking point and will make your cake stand out. Alternatively opt for a clean simple style using pretty green foliage for a minimalist look. Semi naked and buttercream creations remain popular and are great for a beautiful rustic theme.
  • Bold colours can look dramatic and create a real talking point. Black is incredibly striking dressed with the right flowers and you'll certainly wow your guests with deep rich hues teamed with stunning florals.
  • Display your wedding cake perfectly on a pedestal cake stand, raising it up high for all to see. Make it a real focal point by creating a whole table with matching mini cakes and beautifully iced biscuits for all your guests to enjoy.
