March 8, 2016
We were pleased to see our cakes featured on the Strictly Weddings Blog this week. See the full article here: http://strictlyweddings.com/blog/2016/03/soft-colors-reign-in-2016-wedding-season/
Here are a few snippets from the lovely article:
"This wedding season soft colors reign with the announcement of Pantone’s colors of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. The engaging combo provides countless opportunities for pairings and joins easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. Taking a cue from Pantone’s color palette, Paula Rooney Weddings and Events and Planned for Perfection Luxury Wedding Planner delivered a quintessentially English feel, with a luxurious and fresh look. Blending Rose Quartz and Serenity with Pantone’s Smoke Green and Lavender Fog this styled shoot completely steals our hearts. Set in the luscious woodlands and perfectly manicured gardens of the Farleigh House with their rose garden, ornamental ponds and a stunning blossom tree avenue, photographer Carey Sheffield captured the beauty. Get ready as this is chock full of Pinterest worthy ideas."
The wonderful styling by Jane from Planned 4 Perfection set the scene for the shoot and these gorgeous images are by talented international photographer Carey Sheffield.
We just loved the pretty Nicky Macfarlane bridesmaid dress - so adorable
"Pantone’s Color Palette
Inspiration was all around this team of UK vendors as they were stimulated by nature, the season, color, textures and shapes. Take for instance the blossom tree centerpiece showcasing a flowing table runner made from scented peonies, white lilac, white hydrangeas. Paula Rooney perfectly accented the soft colors of Rose Quartz with Lavender Fog and then set the gorgeous floral against Serenity hued linens for depth. Gifted Heart Cakes seized the opportunity to introduce Smoked Green and rich browns with their tower of macaroons and an ombre cake for the dessert cake. The Smoked Green plays nicely amongst the greenery of the lush foliage. "
We created soft tones with texture for this shoot. We wanted a very natural look but still inkeeping with the luxury elements of this pretty styled shoot.
We just loved the beautiful floral displays by the amazing Paula Rooney Weddings and Events. Huge blousy blooms in perfect pastel shades
This Emma Hunt Wedding dress was perfectly elegant with its lace detail.
