On 28th December I had the pleasure of creating a super cute cake for the gorgeous Jennifer. She was marrying Ben after his proposal on Christmas day 2011. This became the inspiration for their big day. If the detail was wintry, sparkly and elegant it was included. They married at Goosedale Nottingham, in the stunning barn style wing. Goosedale provides some fantastic opportunities for beautiful photographs. The talented photographer Jen and Ben chose was Jon from S6 Photography (for his full portfolio).
Jen chose all her suppliers with care and attention. Many I know well and have previously worked with. The florist they chose was Rebecca from Floral Deco (I admire all of her creations and have worked with her on several occasions). Jen and her bridesmaids had a mix of opulent colours in vintage, in season blooms.
As well as the 3 tier Butter cream ruffled cake, with the super cute ginger bread bride and groom (styled of course to represent the happy couple themselves), I provided a little gingerbread man for each guest as a wedding favour. To compliment the yummy cake and favours, Eloise of Gracella Occasion provided a gorgeous sweetie table for all the guest.
To dance the night away they chose a personal favourite of mine, Just Ben. Hes charming, funny and a great singer to boot.
Jennifer and Ben’s special day is also over on Save The Dates ‘I thee wed’ blog feature, where Jen talks about her special day in her own words.
