Art Deco Chic

Add a touch of 1920s class to your big day with an Art Deco-inspired cake. Don’t just stop there, though – add glints of gold and structured geometrical themes into your decor and accessories to create a look that your guests will remember forever.

Who Needs a Cake?

Make it easier for everyone to get involved with a huge tiered macaroon stand. Not only is it super pretty and fun, but guests will be pleased to see that you’ve spared them a thought and done something a bit different.

Amazingly Abstract

If you’re someone that likes to go against the grain, opt for an uber abstract, totally out there wedding cake. Splashes of colour and interesting shapes will not only be insta-worthy but will show off your fun side as a couple.

Dark & Mysterious

Not everything wedding-related has to be white! Opt for dark blues and moody hues to offset more traditional expectations. Adding hints of silver and twinkly accessories can set a romantic scene, almost as if you were to marry underneath the stars.

Winter Rustica

If you’re getting wed in the colder months, add some wintry charm to your modern wedding cake by adding subtle touches like eucalyptus, birch and winter roses. Only having a minimal amount of buttercream added to the outside of each tier creates a woody effect and sets the scene for the perfect winter wedding.
