Last Saturday i made Astrid a Bustier Cake for her Bridal Shower - and this weekend i had the pleasure of making the Wedding Cake for her and Simon.

The Sun was still warm as it made its slow decent over the Indian Ocean.

Small white caps splashing against the sand all the way along the beautiful Coastline.
Yes, a wonderful day for a Wedding and a perfect setting for the Reception.

6 layers of dark Chocolate Mud Cake - each layer torted and filled with Chocolate Ganache.
Pastel Lime Green - with Pearls dotted here and there.
The Black Ribbon -  around the base of  the cake- which Simon and Astrid used on their Invitations.
And Diamante letters - S and A - together amongst the pearls.

Green Roses in round bowl vases on every table looking every so fresh and pretty.
Pure white Oriental Lilliams running along the Bridal Table - with white Singaporean Orchids, to co-ordinate with the crisp white chair covers and pale green bows.

White Lanterns - swaying in the gentle afternoon breeze - both inside and out.

Yes, as the Sun sets tonight and the lights in the Lanterns glow even brighter - it shall indeed be a wonderful place to celebrate the Marriage of Simon an Astrid - as the Indian Ocean rolls in to end another beautiful day along the West Australian Coastline.

  1. Very nice and a nice color ! Love the bubbles and butterfly's .

  2. Handmade pearls and fluttering butterflies... Simple and elegant, or simply elegant. They both apply. The craftsmanship is spot on, as usual, and the colors are so soft and romantic. I can't imagine a more ideal setting for such a romantic occasion and the timing is perfect as the sun sets. What a time to remember. It must give you great satisfaction to be a part of such memories.
