One of my favourite parts of working in the wedding industry is meeting other creative and talented people. Each wedding the vendors are almost like a family of creative minds working together to create the couples dream day. I enjoy working with wedding planners, floral designers, stationary designers and any other creative mind in the wedding planning process. Often their work is incorporated into the cake design because what they do is also so inspiring.
A couple of weeks ago Cynthia Martyn contacted me to design a cake for her wedding inspiration shoot to be showcased on the queen of all bridal blogs, Style me Pretty. I was thrilled for many reasons for this project , one of which was who was capturing the photographs, the talented Rebecca Wood. Rebecca captures weddings in such a soft and beautiful happy way and was the perfect match for this girly pink and peach inspiration design shoot.
For the design of the cake , I wanted to make it soft and cheery. So I incorporated several shades of pink and peach sugar pom poms. To give the vintage touch to the cake I created edible gold vintage keys and buttons (I know I’m obsessed). The main focal point of the cake was the fabric inspired large sugar flower which was hand painted with crafty touches.
Here are a few of the images from the shoot. You can check out the rest on Style me Pretty.
Stemz flowers designed the gorgeous floral arrangement. The peonies, roses and bougainvillea smelled amazing. f
Cynthia found these adorable pattern soaps which complimented the custom designed menu made by Christine Flynn from Love the Design.
Here’s a list of all the talented minds who worked on this peachy concept. I highly suggest checking them out!
