The theme colour from the start was ‘Tiffany blue’ (or actually some say ‘Tiffany green!).
To say Becky is a perfectionist really is an understatement. Becky works in creative design and thus has a very keen eye for colour and detail. Ben on the other hand does not work in creative design but was very happy to take somewhat of a backseat when it came to the colour schemes and those finer details that make a wedding truly special.
The venue was Great Fosters, Egham, Surrey. Great Fosters is a luxury hotel, originally built as a Royal hunting lodge in 1550 for King Henry VIII.
Becky and Ben held their ceremony in the Orangery and the reception in the Tithe Barn.
The barn has a beautiful vaulted oak beamed ceiling and thus Becky wanted the cake to have height and grandeur, so as not to be lost in the space. Whilst they only needed 4 -5 tiers of cake to feed their guests, the design was agreed at 7 tiers, with the largest tier (bottom tier) and the top tier both being dummy tiers. The rest of the cake comprised chocolate, lemon, carrot and vanilla sponges, filled with various creams and buttercreams.
Becky loved lots of our designs by really wanted the detail on the cake to be very soft and delicate. Ornate, but not too imposing. Therefore, no big swags and bows, just lots of beautiful Royal iced piping and sugar lace overlay.
I am delighted that Becky and Ben had a wonderful day, were so pleased with their cake, that the rain held off and….. even more pleased (and so bloody relieved) that the page boy (my 3 year old son Louis) was beautifully behaved and didn’t actually pick his nose all day….
