This weekend was very special. Our good friends Tom and Katie got hitched in technicolour style. My husband Chris was best man, my sister-in-law Victoria was a bridesmaid and Eloise was one of the beautiful little flower girls. A very important family affair.
The wedding was rainbow themed from the men's waistcoats to the flowers to the cake which had a suprise under the tiers.
The cake was made by Tom's mum Pauline (who also made my wedding cake nearly 5 years ago) it was 4 tiers covered in the full spectrum of brightly coloured fondant flowers. The topper reflected the couple's somewhat unconventional nature - Hans Solo and Princess Leia figurines. Considering they exited the church to the Star Wars theme (being played by the church organist no less) this did not surprise anyone!
The surprise was very cool. As Tom and Katie cut the cake they revealed rainbow coloured sponge which had been created by layering different colour sponges with a white buttercream filling. A great talking point.
I know this blog is about cake but I can't help but share a picture of the cute little flower girls, my Eloise and Tom's niece Olivia. They looked adorable and I was a very proud Mum. I was also very proud (and laughing hysterically) at the Best man speech by Chris and fellow BM Ben which included a rap about how Tom and Katie met, to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme tune. It is moments like this which remind me why I married him.
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Brown! May the force be with you both xx
