A sunny wedding weekend in the Cotswolds and Wiltshire

April 10th, 2017

Wow, what a beautiful sunny Spring day 8th April 2017 was to get married!  The first busy wedding cake weekend of 2017 was a gorgeous one.  With wall to wall sunshine and two quite similar cakes but 2 very different venues.

 Winkworth Farm in the Cotswolds

Sarah and Jay chose the always lovely Winkworth Farm on the edge of the Cotswolds for their April wedding.  Winkworth is one of my absolute favourite venues.  From the lovely owners to the gorgeous setting and amazing barn.  I am very grateful to be one of their recommended suppliers.  One of the many things I love are the beautiful gardens where you can marry outside in the very pretty roundhouse and sunken garden.  The barn also has the luxury of a separate ceremony area as well as the main reception barn.  So rain or shine you have a very pretty place to wed.

Sarah’s dress played a major part of the decoration on the cake with a swag of sugar lace and piped brush embroidery, which matched the lace detail around the base and over her dress.  Jay didn’t get left out though as I made a sugar model of his TVR with the happy couple in their wedding attire sitting inside!

 The splendid grounds of Marlborough College

Lesley and Mike’s wedding took place in the very grand surroundings of Marlborough College.  As a member of staff Mike is afforded the opportunity to marry in the school’s church.  Their reception was held in a beautiful marquee on the green in front of the school.

The marquee was full of beautiful lilac, pink and white flowers arranged by the fabulous Robins Flowers.  The amazing ladies from Love to Plan were ensuring the smooth running of the day.  It was lovely to hear from them during the evening to say the cake went down very well!

Their cake was based on a previous design of mine, but included additional touches which Lesley requested.  Each tier was painted with a subtle white satin shimmer with pieces of white sugar lace secured over the tops and sides of each cake.  The whole cake was raised slightly to allow the scalloped sugar lace to drape below the base tier.  Decorating the cake were sugar roses in lilac and pale pink to match the wedding flowers.  Lesley also asked me to create a pretty birthday cake for her niece who was celebrating her 6th birthday by being a bridesmaid!
