The design brief for this cake was for it to be ivory and white, have hessian, lace and pearls and to be adorned with fabric flowers. I looked to source the flowers from someone more skilled than I am in sewing but couldn't find exactly what I needed. Therefore after a trip to the haberdashery and some advice from their helpful sales assistant I set about creating the flowers myself.
When I arrived at The Talbot Inn in Ripley to set up the cake it was wonderful to see how it complimented their theme - the chairs covers were finished with hessian and lace just as the cake was, and it fitted their vintage look perfectly. As you can see from the pictures below the room was dressed beautifully and they had thought of every detail.
As I was finishing the set up of the wedding cake the staff at the venue made me aware there was an addition for the cake left by the bride and groom - as you can see below someone is a Dr Who fan! Congratulations to Mr and Mrs McGill, I hope you had a wonderful day.
