A Beautiful London Wedding

Friday 10th of September 2010

Rebecca and Ali married on 21stAugust at The Painted Hall, The Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, London. Becky came to see me with mum for her design consultation and to befit her venue she wanted me to design something that was quite spectacular. 

Becky was unsure how her colours and ideas could be realised into a really grand centrepiece and after searching magazines and the internet she hadn’t seen anything that completely ‘wowed’ her.

The colour schemes were ‘Tiffany blue’ and white, and the chosen flowers were white roses.  If possible, Becky also wanted to bring in a touch of diamante – to pick out the subtle detail in the dresses and accessories.

The guest list was quite extensive so we needed the cake to cater for up to 250 portions, plus Becky and Ali wanted to keep a tier of fruit (hopefully be used upon the pitter patter of tiny feet!)

It is always so rewarding to see the brides expression – when all the ideas come together and the design is sketched out.  Becky was really excited that we could use the ‘Tiffany’ blue as the base colour and trusted my judgement that the white roses would be an amazing contrast against this exquisite background.  We also included a cameo initial plaque at the bottom to really personalise the design, plus a few diamantes scattered throughout.

The chosen flavours (from bottom up) were, rich fruit cake, vanilla sponge with vanilla bean buttercream, lemon with lemon zest buttercream, rich chocolate cake with cocoa buttercream, carrot cake and lastly, rich fruit cake to top it off.

I have included here various images – the cake, the set up, the venue, and some wonderful images of the bride and bridesmaids prior to the ceremony.   These images are the amazing work of Julia Fox Photographyhttp://www.juliafoxphotography.com.

I was so lucky that Julia was able to accompany me on the day and, as usual, she delivered the most fantastic imagery.  I particularly love the precious moment between father and bride, before he escorted her down the aisle.  Perfect.

The wedding florist was Rachel Morganhttp://www.rachelmorganweddingflowers.co.uk.  The flowers were absolutely stunning – especially the fantastic pedestals positioned at the front of the Hall.

Becky and Ali enlisted the help of wedding planners for their day – a great idea if you are planning a particularly big wedding.
