Leave a Comment
On my weekly browse of the wedding scene websites, I stumbled across this company and had to show off their amazing creations!
Based in Toronto Canada and owned & operated by sisters Cindy & Sarah Coelho... let me introduce you to -  The Wedding Cake Shoppe.

Founded by Cindy, who graduated The baking and pastry arts program at George Brown College. Furthering her love of sugar work at The Notter School of Pastry Arts, in Florida. Cindy had the wonderful opportunity of working side by side making wedding cakes with Bonnie Gordon. In 2010, Cindy and Sarah had the honour to be the first Canadians featured on Food Network Challenge, winning a silver medal.

The Wedding Cake Shoppe has been established since 2005, and the retail store has been open since 2009.

Their designs really do have some amazing detail which sets these cakes apart. Love it!

Morning all,

The trend for wedding cakes at the mement is definitely naked or semi naked style.  Well, if you can't make up your mind as to which to go for then why not have a cake that incorporates both!

This stunning creation comes from Canadian based 'The Wedding Cake Shoppe'.  Featured on 'Wedding Chicks' blog, I just had to pinch it to show you how gorgeous this looks....and works! 

Think we have a new winner for new style 2016 wedding cake!


Jimmy Choo - Groom Shoes

Leave a Comment
Hi all,

A lot of wedding blogs tend to focus on the bridal collections, well... fear not!  Today it's all about the groom.

Us men like to look good, most of the time, and one of the most important parts of the grooms attire is his shoes.  It says a lot about a person by the shoes they wear.....apparently!  I had to wear 50s style brogues for my best mates wedding.  That, to me, said I looked like a cock!

Anyways... check out these gorgeous groom designs by the talented Mr Jimmy Choo...

Jenny Packham 2016 Bridal Collection

Leave a Comment
So I'm back from a very busy Xmas and now into a much quieter January :)

Kicking off this years blog posts is with one of my fave wedding dress designers, Jenny Packham.

Her 2016 collection has to be some of the best I have seen.  A lot of ivory and some stunning detail work.  Subtle yet without going over the top.  I can see this year being a great year for ivory and can't wait to see what else Jenny launches this year.
