Opulent Rose Gold

This recent wedding, at a favourite venue of mine – Hotel Cortijo Bravo here in Velez Malaga, had a very opulent feel to it.The wedding terrace truely sparkled under the setting Spanish sunshine, where the tables were decorated with sequin table runners, gold table centres, accompanied by gold chiavari chairs.

The cake and cupcakes also carried through this colour scheme, where the top tier was decorated around the lower edge with edible gold sequins and a dusted rose gold peony. The co-ordinating cupcakes displayed floral decoration in tones of rose gold set on a gold back drop.

Personalised cupcake boxes were even provided for the guests to take away their cupcakes in.

Sarahs Salduna

Salduna Beach – the tranquil beach side venue here in Marbella, set the scene for the wedding of Sarah & Raymond earlier this week. Sarah opted for travel themed wedding decorations and cake which reflected her travel inspired journey of life to date.

The cake with a very simple yet effective tribute to Sarahs travels highlighted her travel via plane.  The additional cupcakes were decorated with bespoke ‘ticket’ cupcake tags.

A ‘luggage label’ table plan and postcard themed table centres all added to the travel theme of this wedding.

Sarah also treated her guests to one of our ever popular candy carts, decorated to compliment her theme, including personalised goodie bags for her guests treats.

Cupcake Shoes!

Something a little different for todays wedding – hopefully just as delicious. The ‘shoes’ were constructed by adding finger biscuits ( for the shoe sole ) together with ice cream wafer ‘tubes’ ( for the heels) to a colourfully decorated cupcake. Designed to co-ordinate with the bold red colour scheme of this wedding, these cute cupcake shoes were authentically displayed amidst a couple of shoe boxes !

This striking colour scheme was accentuated by adding these pretty table decorations and venue accessories.

The stunning floral creations were supplied by my good friend Shona – from Bunches.

‘Naked’ Mini Cakes

Naked cakes are definitely a popular choice for many of this years brides. With naked mini cakes you can offer your guest their own cake yet still maintain the ‘naked’ cake feel.

The cakes can be filled with lashings of either fresh cream or buttercream then topped topped off with heaps of fresh fruit of your choice. We chose strawberries, blackcurrents and lime.

The choice of display can then be adapted to co-ordinate with your wedding theme. We created a natural rustic backdrop using natural wooden pallets, soft green fabric with hessian overlay.

Georgia and James opted for a very rustic style of decoration, so the display hosted plenty of gypsophyla, one or two pieces or olive wood and the odd olive branch greenery.
