Beautiful Kent Wedding

Sunday 4th of July 2010

Congratulations Lucy & Matthew! On your recent wedding and also for looking completely gorgeous in 28 degrees of sunshine last Saturday.

Eastwell Manor in Kent was the chosen venue and looked absolutely gorgeous in the sunshine when I arrived to deliver the cake.  As you may have already gathered from the blog, I have a real passion for history and adore so many of the beautiful venues that I am privileged to see when meeting clients and delivering wedding cakes.  Eastwell manor is no exception.  A 3,000 acre estate, originally built in 1069 situated in Boughton Lees nr Ashford in Kent.

When delivering wedding cakes I rarely get to see the bride (or any of the bridal party actually!) but Lucy and family had stayed at the venue the night before so it was a real treat when Lucy walked into the room – complete with hair rollers and a beaming smile!   I managed to capture her expression on camera when she saw the cake (sorry Lucy – but you still look lovely….!)

I knew when I met Lucy that she would be a real perfectionist and have a great eye for detail.  I wasn’t wrong.  The room looked amazing.  The theme was predominately vintage white, but also included some very ‘Cath Kidson’ colour splashes.  i absolutely loved the ‘sweet favours’  and the framed table names (see pictures).  Lucy and Matthew had chosen my white ‘Daisy’ cake design, which, if I do say so myself, was a great choice!  A four tier design, but actually only three tiers of real cake (see, who would know?!)

Steve Ayres was the wedding photographerhttp://www.steveayres.com and has kindly supplied me with some of his fantastic images – posted here. Thanks so much Steve – the images are wonderful.  See… 28 degrees, wearing a suit and lugging camera equipment around – no problem!

A beautfiul wedding, a gorgous couple and an absolute pleasure to work with x

PS.  Lucy emailed these very kind words…..

The cake was incredible, I got so many compliments on it and it also tasted amazing. The whole thing went, the whole thing, I could not believe it. I think if we had cut up the polystyrene people would have eaten it!…
