One of the highlights of working on weddings is receiving images from clients from their wedding day. After months of communication working on the details, it is delightful to see the cake in the context of the overall style of what is without doubt a joyous life event.
After covid changes of plan and postponements, clients Lauren and Graham finally celebrated their wedding in summer 2021, with a sophisticated black tie affair in Dublin. Lauren has a professional background in interiors, architecture and design, working as Creative Director of North Design. It was unsurprising then that every detail of their wedding was considered, refined and stylish. The day was exquisitely captured by talented photographers Adam and Grace Photography and I am honoured to receive some of their images to share.
The Wedding Reception
Lauren and Graham held their reception in the elegant and sophisticated surroundings of the Merrion Hotel in Dublin city centre. A collection of beautifully restored Georgian townhouses, the architecture and interiors of the fine reception rooms at the Merrion made the perfect setting for the intimate dinner reception.
The Wedding Cake
Lauren and Graham had a clear vision for their wedding cake: white, minimal and stylish. They chose a variation of a design from our portfolio which was finished in off-white chocolate ganache and decorated with delicate sails made from edible wafer paper and highlighted with edible gold leaf.
The cake took pride of place in the drinks reception area where guests could view it immediately on arrival. Surrounded by soft candlelight and lush florals and foliage, photographs of parents and grandparents wedding days added a personal touch to the cake table.
The cake flavour was two tiers of delicious Earl Grey Lavender Lemon. I love the concept of offering one flavour of your choosing to share with guests!
And you don’t often get to see the other side of the cake cutting photo but love this candid image of guests capturing the moment! (A reminder of how much people love a wedding cake I think!).
Thank you so much to Lauren and Graham for sharing these images. Congratulations to you both and wishing you a lifetime of happiness!
