Margam Park Wedding

Cris and Mike were married in the stunning setting of Margam Park and had chosen a grass and sweets theme, with the invitations echoing the Wonka's Golden Ticket of the film Charlie and the chocolate factory. The bride and groom didn't want the "traditional" white wedding cake, and following an initial consultation decided on a brightly coloured, modern design with a "wonky" construction. Each layer of the cake was adorned with lollipops and sweets handcrafted from icing in colours that complemented the flowers and bridesmaids dresses. Each layer of the cake was a different flavour starting with a lemon bottom tier filled with lemon and lemoncello buttercream, followed by a coconut and lime cake with lime buttercream, leading to a classic Victoria sponge filled with raspberry conserve and vanilla buttercream and finally the top tier was rich Belgian chocolate with a chocolate ganache centre. The cake was an eyecatching centrepiece that fitted perfectly with the grass table runners and brightly coloured gerberas.

The tiers were displayed on a set-back stand in order to produce the illusion of the cakes floating like clouds in the sky and looked truly stunning in the swathes of sunlight that bathed the beautiful reception room at Llansantffraed Court. The cake was a classic Victoria sponge filled with vanilla buttercream and raspberry preserve.
