Wedding Photo

The lady who ordered this cake was the sister of a previous bride (a friend), both were short notice weddings, and this one, like the roses and lilies cake with accompanying book cake, needed a printed photo and verse on it which I outsourced.  The difference being this one was to be transported some distance by the maid of honour, rather than set up by me at the venue, and the stand was one which separated the tiers.  The only way I could photograph them, therefore, was to set them out side by side in my studio before packing for collection.

The toppers were sugarpaste and I had a few details to work from – one thing which was accidental was the comparative height of the bride and groom as I had only ever met the bride at her sisters wedding.  Unfortunately he ended up a little shorter than I intended, but when I mentioned this to the maid of honour she did advise that this was, in fact quite accurate!  Hope he didn’t have a complex about it……
