A few weeks ago now I drive up to Northumberland to deliver the wedding cake for a lovely couple, childhood sweethearts Ailsa & Stephen.
They got married at the fabulous (and I can't stress that enough) Newton Hall on the wonderful Northumberland Coast. Despite the weather being dreadful in the run up to the wedding, the day of the wedding itself brought some beautiful sunshine, so much so that my friend and I (freelance makeup artist Siobhan McGurk) went for a pub lunch after setting up and actually sat outside!
There were a huge amount of beautiful and pretty finishing touches to this wedding, the website pictures really don't do it justice so if you're looking for a wedding venue up in the North East, it's worth popping in to have a look for yourself!
Now to the cake, Ailsa and Stephen fell in love with the Simply Naked cake from the Simply Antoinette range but instead of the traditional Victoria Sponge with Raspberry Jam & Vanilla Buttercream, they opted for three tiers of Luscious Lemon Cake with Lemon Curd Buttercream (my favourite!).
We also personalised this cake with the colours, originally this was designed with bright reds & pinks with roses, strawberries & raspberries.
As Ailsa had chosen deep purples, pale lilacs and beautiful baby's breath, I used these to decorate the cake along with raspberries & blackberries to create a stunning version of the Simply Naked cake.
I always tell Brides & Grooms how easy it is to personalise the Simply Range by changing small details and colours and this really is a great example of that!
I fell in love with the venue and the cake and can't wait to see some more pictures taken by a wonderful Newcastle-based photographer Greg Hails.
Congratulations Ailsa & Stephen!!
