Planning Your Wedding  – Choosing Your Flowers

Being prepared: 3 simple steps to take before even visiting your florist, which will help you make the right choice. Step 1: Collect as many images as you can.

All That Glitters – Gold Cakes

All That Glitters  – Gold Cakes

  I recently made my first all gold cake, for a wedding at The Decorium in North London. An all gold cake may seem over the top to some people, but this one matched the venue perfectly. The design of your cake should always compliment the venue it will be displayed in, remember the entire setting rather than thinking of he cake as a stand alone item. Ordering a gold cake however isn’t as simple as it sounds. There are many many different shades of gold and picking the right one is just as important as the design itself. I’ve never quite found the right shade off the shelf...

Planning your Wedding – Buying a Certificated Diamond

    A few months ago I introduced you to Perfectly Planned, a group of suppliers I regularly work with in the wedding /event industry. One of which is a fabulous jeweller, Jon Levy at Jack Connor Designs. I asked Jon for some advise on what my couples should be looking out for when buying a diamond, he explains below. Every Diamond is unique. Nature has created them. Man has cut and polished them. It was in the mid twentieth century that accepted descriptive standards were adopted.  The 4 Cs are now the universal headlines in polished diamonds. Cut, Clarity, Colour and Carat...

When Cake and Flowers Come Together

  When singer Maria Evangelou was planning her wedding cake and came to me armed with her woodland inspired designs from Pinterest I knew I wasn’t going to be able to do this alone. I needed a florist, not just any florist but my florist, Mel at Ramels Florist based in Potters Bar. Mel and I have worked on projects before and she is my go to person for all things flowers. To pull this off we’d need some planning, a bit of spare cardboard and some extra moss. If you are thinking about having fresh flowers on your cake then speak to your florist and see if she regularly...

Lego Wedding Cake

My friend Keno just mentioned to me that she saw a story in the evening standard about how a photo of a Lego wedding cake has caused quite a stir on the internet. Prompting thousands of people to enquire about ordering the same cake. It reminded me that I made a similar cake a few months ago and forgot all about it. My bride Kathryn was obviously ahead of the game! The cake was a last minute decision from the couple, originally they weren’t going to have a cake, but changed their minds and decided to have a bit of fun with it. Maybe now I will be making a few more… Katy...
