I have been very busy this year with lots of couples to make bespoke wedding cakes for. I have received some fantastic reviews from my lovely brides and I thoroughly enjoyed making each and everyone single one of them. They were all so different, with different flavours in each tier on most of the cakes. I especially like creating new designs and brides have been very creative with the themes they have in mind, colours they want to use and their choice of flowers, favours etc. If you would like to discuss your wedding cake and know that you are…
Two Beautiful Photo Shoots, One Amazing Bridal Designer
Baroque Couture’s 2017 renaissance shoot takes inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci’s paintings using deep red and gold richness to compliment the beautiful beading and styles within the collection. This collaborative shoot shows off each individuals input, from the designer, to the cake; the interior and exterior details to the makeup. Baroque contacted the photographer Elena at Elen Studio Photography to come on board and work on this dark and moody shoot. They began to plan the shoot using the perfect venue belonging to a friend. Upon visiting they were pleasantly surprised by the diversity of the location and made the decision to go ahead with two styles of shoots. The indoor shots took naturally to the original historical painting re-creations and the outdoor worked in a way that followed the renaissance theme, however becoming inspired by brighter glistening whites and pinks. The angel wings bring an element of fun and angelic feel to the shoot.
The outdoors was styled by Niely from Strawberry House Interiors whilst the indoor shots were styled by Charlotte at Princess Occasions, working around the wonderful cake by Emma at Hello Cake. The models worked within the amazingly styled spaces wearing makeup by Caroline Kent and the collection by Baroque. The shoot involved 15 people working together on the day, and as Elaina explained “A wonderful chaos”.
