Throw in a bit of a gold overdose, and you’ll have me hooked to those images! So when Bonnallie Brodeur – Photographer sent me this Cambodian-Canadian wedding of Anne-Maly and Elias, I couldn’t say no. I utterly adore the vibrant colours of Anne-Maly’s serval outfits, and I’m mesmerised by traditional elements, including guests queuing with wedding gifts to present to the bride and groom!

I love these traditions that are so different from what we are accustomed to, but which no doubt must have made the day so much fun!

Fully planned by the lovely bride and her mum, Jane planned an elegant yet vibrant wedding, introducing yellow ranunculi and touches of blue as her colour scheme.

Over to Jane who tells us a bit more about her wedding day and Pepper Nix Photography that tells us the story with her beautiful images :)

Wedding trend: lace cakes

Posted by / Cake, Uncategorized

Read more on "Wedding trend: lace cakes" »

Hello my lovelies, I’ve spent some time looking at wedding cakes over the last few weeks. Whenever I work on a shoot or a client’s wedding, I invariably spend hours and hours on Pinterest looking for the right cake, the perfect details, matching colours, shapes and decorations. I am in complete awe at the cake designers, who with their hands, are able to create such masterpieces. Any bride who’s ever gone through the ups and downs of wedding planning will tell you that every little detail matters, and everything from the floral decorations to the table setting can be crucial to the overall look and feel of the wedding that has been so meticulously planned. When it comes to throwing an elegant wedding, you plan every detail to exude sophistication, down to the delicious cake that’s set to be cut at the end of the reception.

A sophisticated wedding cake perfect for an elegant wedding

Wedding cakes are often an event all in themselves, with most cakes being reflective of the couple’s personality. For an elegant wedding, a beautiful, plain, white or off-white cake with lace detailing can serve to be a wonderful centrepiece. Very little is needed to make the cake table stand out, as the cake on its own, with its intricate lace detailing, is enough to draw attention.

Linen and Silk Weddings, Wedding Blog, UK wedding blog, Destination wedding blog, Wedding cake, Lace wedding cake, Lace cake, elegant wedding cake{image source via Lesla Matsis Cakes}

Lace detailing can also be done on differently colored cakes, as seen in this cake from Dream Day Cakes, adding an elegant twist to modern cakes. The style of the lace can also project a more modern approach, perhaps picking up on patterns or designs of other elegant elements of your wedding, such as your dress!

20140606-002518-1518121.jpgWould I attempt making a lace cake? Hmmm… probably not… I wouldn’t even know how to do the icing, let alone a whole lace cake. However, if you are a baking queen, while lace cakes may seem incredibly difficult to create, and even more expensive to buy,  it’s actually relatively easy to make them. This video tutorial from Bronnie Bakes shows just how easy it is to make a vintage wedding cake with lace detailing, all with the help of some simple tools.

You can use a wonderful pattern to give your fondant a lace finish, which you can then apply to your plain cakes. Stacking several laced cakes with dowels will help give height and structure to your wedding cake. Ali Rodham, product developer for Marks & Spencer, has also come up with a quick tutorial for using dowels to support contemporary cakes:

And, of course, the lace themselves can also come in different colors. Bold-colored lace bears a striking contrast to plain-colored, white cakes, allowing you to incorporate whatever color theme you have in mind for your wedding as well.

As I’ve fallen in love with lace cakes, I’ve actually commissioned one for my next destination wedding. So watch this space, as hopefully I will have images to show very very soon! ;)

Lots of love

Styling advice for grooms by 33Boroughs

Good morning B&Gs! What a fabulous few weeks we’ve had at L&SW HQ recently! A couple of weeks ago we launched the “To Sharm with Love” competition, giving a a fabulous couple the chance to have their wedding in Sharm el Sheikh planned by me and photographed by Elisabetta Marzetti Photography for free (!), plus we’re throwing in a one-week honeymoon at the  Sultan Garden Resort, and loads more… It’s SOOOO good that if I weren’t married, I’d apply myself! We’re also in full planning swing for a Sharm el Sheikh and a Puglia destination wedding, so I’m certainly a busy bee, but loving every second of dealing with my lovely brides and grooms!

On that note, I’ve noticed that my grooms are becoming more and more engaged when it comes to planning their wedding and a few have also mentioned reading my blog. And yet, far too often us bloggers make the mistake of ‘forgetting’ them by not giving them enough attention and advice, and dedicating post after post to brides only. Today I’m going to attempt to change this trend thanks to my dear friend and fellow blogger Ryan of 33 Boroughs | Dapper Daddy in London who’s dedicating his entire guest post to grooms.

Ryan is a 30 something husband, father, blogger, baker, (I’d add one of the most fashion-forward men I know) and all round nice guy living in London, who loves fashion, food, gadgets, grooming and shopping. His blog, 33 Boroughs is an homage to London, made up of precisely 33 boroughs, and a place where Ryan features and journals his diverse passions. Today Ryan is giving you, grooms, a bit of style inspiration for your wedding day.

Over to you Ryan!

So you are getting married. The biggest day of your fiancée’s life. You may or may not realise that you will now be flat broke; but, the smile on her beautiful, gorgeous face is worth every penny. Every single blood, sweat and salty tear-soaked penny. All you have to do now is turn up on the day, repeat a few lines and survive the speeches! But if you’re going to be broke, terrified and a blubbering mess at least do it with style.

My dad always told me “Shut up”, “One suit does not fit all” and “You pay for what you get”, which all seems appropriate here. To choose a good suit you need to take time. Shop around. Get out and try some on. A department store is a good place to start as it will have a lot of variety all under one roof. It will also allow you to experience a range in price versus quality. An expensive suit may not necessarily be right or feel right for you.

Linen and Silk Weddings, Groom style, Groom styling, Groom, Groom suit, Wedding suit, Casual, Double breasted, Double breasted suit, Casual wedding suit, Morning suit, Three-piece suit, 33boroughs, Male blogger, Fashion blogger, Men's fashion blogger (4)Try to find a suit to match your build. Any dedicated suit store or department assistant can help you with this. You also know yourself and what feels comfortable. As a general rule of thumb, slim builds can get away with a single breasted jacket and slim leg. The larger gentlemen should veer towards a double breasted jacket and wide leg to give the most flattering shape. Those in between can go either way. If in doubt ask 2 people what they think. One of them should be your mum and one should be someone who doesn’t really like you that much. Go with a happy medium.Linen and Silk Weddings, Groom style, Groom styling, Groom, Groom suit, Wedding suit, Casual, Double breasted, Double breasted suit, Casual wedding suit, Morning suit, Three-piece suit, 33boroughs, Male blogger, Fashion blogger, Men's fashion blogger (1)The jacket should fit comfortably on the shoulder. You don’t want the ends of the shoulder to droop or for the shoulder to bulge through the arm, not matter how hard you’ve been working out! This means the jacket is too small and everyone will think it belongs to your little brother or worse yet you stole it from a little old man. Then people will think you are mean. They will heckle your speech. Don’t do it.

Most companies will offer a short, regular or long variance in jacket. This refers in the main to the sleeve length. As a rule of thumb the sleeve should stop several centimetres back from your wrist bone. This is to allow your shirt to be seen and any fancy cufflinks and/ or watch you may choose to wear.Linen and Silk Weddings, Groom style, Groom styling, Groom, Groom suit, Wedding suit, Casual, Double breasted, Double breasted suit, Casual wedding suit, Morning suit, Three-piece suit, 33boroughs, Male blogger, Fashion blogger, Men's fashion blogger (7)For trousers it’s most important to get the waist right. The leg length or leg width can be easily adjusted by any good tailor or seamstress. Be wary. A lot of dry cleaners will offer a service but remember this is your wedding, your big day. Altering a suit is much like getting a haircut: you really don’t want to be experimenting. It’s always good therefore to go with a recommendation. A good tip is to ask the store of purchase if they offer a tailoring service. Most will have a preferred tailor or even better offer an in-store service.

Head smart, dummy! When and where are you getting married? Winter wedding in London? Then go for a 3 piece suit.
