A Wedding Cake on a Swing

Taking part in a styled shoot is a fabulous way of pushing your boundaries, especially when you’re able to work with an amazing team of professionals. I’m always so excited when I’m able to get involved as I can let my imagination go wild!

Back in May Daniel Adams Wedding and Portrait Photography invited me to take part in a shoot at The Nunneries in St Albans. The Pinterest board was amazing and as soon as I saw photos of the location I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do.  A wedding cake on a swing.

Not the kind of person to shy away from a challenge, I knew that this was a case of go big or go home.  I started by designing the cake. Knowing that the swing was going to be the focal point I kept the cake simple. Crisp white icing and a simple cascade of pink and ivory roses and berries. I added a few succulents to keep with the boho vibe.

The cake swing I actually made myself. Once I knew the size of cake and the cake board I cut a round piece of wood, drilled some hole to thread the rope through and voila – a swing.

As more and more cake makers here are experimenting with cake decorating I like to think of myself as a pioneer of swinging wedding cakes on this side of the pond!

Couples love the boho vibe that is so on trend this year. The results of the shoot were amazing.

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves!
