A BIG thank you to WED Magazine for asking me to get involved with their latest ‘sweet special’ photo shoot. Beautifully photographed by Ben Tyler at the recently refurbished Alverton in Truro – a really stunning boutique style hotel with quirky and individual styling set at the edge of the city.

The large feature cake was hand painted with milky pink and mauve roses on a chalk blue base with little touches of gold foliage to lift the design. The cake was finished with hand crafted swallows, painted simply with gold details. The decadent plum walls of the dining room really set off the cake making the colours pop.

The edible , hand crafted tea cups and saucers were painted in a range of designs that fitted well together. Ben the photographer got quite a shock when he went to move one and realised he had been shooting tea cups made from icing not porcelain for the past 10 minutes… What a lovely compliment!

Do have a look and my other blog post ‘Photos from WED photoshoot at The Alverton Truro’ for the feature images!
