How to incorporate Christmas flavours into your wedding cake

How to incorporate Christmas flavours into your wedding cake

Christmas is a special time and gives you a wide choice of delicious flavours. One of my favourites is a Moroccan orange cake, which is very rich and decadent, filled with a raspberry curd buttercream. A Baileys sponge filled with a light chocolate ganache. On the more traditional lines, there's the bakewell, a light almond sponge filled with vanilla bean buttercream and a cherry curd. Making the most of the season, how about a delicately spiced pumpkin sponge filled with a rich mascarpone cream?... read more

Inspired by drama and mystery, a group of local suppliers came together to create this striking set of images

To find out more about these dramatic images, we spoke to the make-up artist, Sufiah: "We wanted to create something a bit different, so we chose a vintage yet glamorous theme that incorporated small flashes of colour.

How to create a festive wedding cake

How to create a festive wedding cake

I adore winter weddings and love using a range of striking yet warm textures to create a showstopping cake. Opt for natural textures that you see in winter settings such as pine. Look for bold reds, burgundies and claret. Dark winter roses, green foliage and a touch of gold will look striking against a bright white or pale ivory sugar paste. Winter flavours to warm up your wedding cake include spiced carrot with white chocolate, chocolate and ginger and dark chocolate with white chocolate peppermint buttercream.... read more

Wedding dress expert, Jennifer Jamieson gives her top tips for creating a boho look

Wedding dress expert, Jennifer Jamieson gives her top tips for creating a boho look

There are so many ways to interpret the word 'boho'. If you Google the definition, you'll find descriptions like 'unconventional', 'arty' and 'informal'. I love this theme, and when my partner and I got married, I wanted a more chilled out vibe as I'd been married before and had the full traditional white wedding but it never really felt like me. The best advice I can give to any bride-to-be is to follow your heart. My favourite gowns are always the ones that are a bit different, so don't be afraid to be you! I would opt for burnt oranges and reds and colourful flowers. For the dress, check out our range from Wilderly Bride, they epitomise femininity and honestly are just so beautiful.... read more
