Replace the typical bride and groom figurines atop your wedding cake
with some gorgeous fresh peonies. Floral cake toppers are taking the
dessert world by storm, and we couldn’t be more excited. Place them
cascading down tiers, along the rim of the base or towered high on top
for a show stopping performance! Today we concentrate on the peony, with
its fully puffed petals and to-die-for pink and peach shades…. They
look so good you could eat them!

Love is cheesy and so are these fabulous cakes! Looking for that special and unique addition to your rustic, country or boho celebration? Then its time to toss tradition aside and get on the bandwagon of cheese wheel wedding cakes. You will need at least 3 layers for it to look like a traditional tiered wedding cake and also to balance flavours. Appeal to your guest’s savoury side with delicious local and/or imported cheeses…
Decorated with beautiful flowers or fruit, the “cheese cake” can be made to suit any wedding décor perfectly. The cheese wedding cake can be deconstructed and laid out on a cheese buffet, allowing guests to help themselves or it can be cut up and served on individual platters to guests at their table with trimmings of pickled or dried fruit, dips and jam.

They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts, and this certainly rings true with the ‘naked’ wedding cake trend. Exposed layers upon layers of buttercream, jam and sponge decorated with lavender, floristry and fauna. And believe us, they taste as good as they look!

The pure romance wedding is at the epitome of femininity and love. It's about soft and flowing texture, plush decor and a romanticised aura. Think pink roses, tulle dresses and fairy lights. The entire event is somewhat of a text book wedding with a "big white wedding" vibe, however injected with plenty of your character and style.
Pale pink, gold and dusty blue compliment each other perfectly in achieving a wedding of pure romance... Keep things simple and sophisticated to the focus is on the clean cut romance.

This one will tickle the inner princess of you girly brides. This colour combination radiates glamour - Tiffany & Co blue with dash of silver. It certainly shimmers, sparkles, shines and pops! Brides wanting to allude to an exclusive affair, this could be the palette for you. If a Tiffany & Co solitaire bonbonniere isn’t viable, a blue cupcake amidst a faux Tiffany & Co box will be sure to draw favourable attention. Spoil yourself, it’s your wedding day and it’s all about you. You are a princess and deserve breakfast at Tiffany’s if that’s what you wish.

If something is not traditional, is that something modern? These two tier wedding cakes aren’t exactly traditional, and we feel that there is an aura of modernism to them; we love it.

For a fun and romantic vibe on your wedding day, we can’t think of a better palette than one of the "water colour" variety. Select a specific colour and inject the water colour finish to your scheme for a sophisticated result or create an exciting affair and mix and match pastels and brights to create your desired look.
30 October 2014
This palette is warm and inviting – the metallic copper with soft dusk makes for an unexpectedly amazing colour scheme, for the tasteful bride. Hammered metals, against perfect grey-blue hues, the compilation holds so much glamour and sophistication.
Dusty miller adds a unique textural aspect to bouquets and centerpieces, while still sitting cohesively within the palette. Optionally you can deviate, using light blues and dark greys to still remain on trend.
27 October 2014
There is something about cupcakes... Somehow sweeter, softer, smoother and sexier than your average cake. Cupcakes no longer have to be just your 'choc-chip muffin,' but a piece of art! We think these cupcakes are the sweetest, almost too pretty to eat...
Cupcakes can easily be transported home and can double as a thank you gift for family and friends.
What ever you taste and colour scheme, there is a cupcake to suit. Red velvet, chocolate vanilla or perhaps get creative with some savory ideas?

Chevron, part of the geometric clan, we love so much here at Brides of Adelaide. It's the height of style at the moment, and we are all for throwing the most fashionable event. This grey and yellow palette is fun and colourful but still elegant and crisp... so perfect for the warmer weather.

16 October 2014Red, white, rose, sparkling ... what's your flavour? We are blessed with some of the best wine country Australia has to offer; the views, the fresh air and the clear night skies.
Utilise this beauty on your wedding day, celebrating with friends amongst rolling hills, ripe vines and plush estates. We think vineyards are the perfect canvas for your wedding day, no matter what your style.
Opt for either a rustic, country vibe or allude to a more classic and chic occasion with lots of white and cream touches.
The photography opportunities are endless in a location such as wine country. We think this bridesmaid shot is so unique and special...
End the night celebrating with open fires, candles, starry skies and of course, plenty of wine.

They say black is the most flattering of shades... We think this applies to weddings as well as our wardrobe. The dark shade has the ability to make any colour pop and sparkle; not that coral really needs any help with that. This pair just scream class...

Peonies have been popping up everywhere in recent times and we can definitely see why. The perfect petals, the stunning array of colours... Who would've thought, just like platform heels and winged eyeliner - even the fashion of flowers is on rewind. We think we may have found our favourite bloom of the moment... actually, lets me honest, we will never be able to narrow it down to just one.
Whether in full bloom or barely buds, peonies will suit colour schemes from radiant brights to pretty pastels; peonies are for everyone.

It's a balmy evening, Sauv Blanc in hand and acoustic tunes fill the air, shoes are kicked off and soft grass is at your toes; this could be your wedding reception. Garden weddings are unique and special; not to mention how fabulous your photos will be.
Have fun decorating with bright colours focusing on tones found in the garden; pinks, yellows, blues and greens are ideal.
Play on the garden theme and be creative with decor like this wheelbarrow with seeds for guests to take or an area for the ladies to kick off their heels and have a dance.
Try to remember to constantly refer back to your wedding theme or colour palette during the planning process. This will make for a polished event that flows, from invite, to cake and the final send off.
Create a whimsical event for guests... lanterns, fairy lights and tulle are perfect for this.
10 October 2014
A creative way to interpret a colour palette is to use one colour in many different shades. This green colour scheme looks stunning with emeralds, mint, turquoise and grass-green.

In a world where fashion meets fondant, wedding cakes have become as much of a treat for the eyes as they are for the taste buds.
The cake is an essential element in every wedding with its design, colour and flavour, making the reception as memorable as the food, location and flowers. This season, the traditional feel is offset in favour of decadent wedding cakes that embrace the individuality and personality of the bride, the groom and their whole day as a whole. Taking inspiration from wedding dresses and invitations, on trend cakes feature classic texture and detail with a hint of modernity in the form of cut out appliques, ruffles and multi-displays. Pink hues and dreamy pastels are seen in both gradients and flat tones and are accented with cream and white to contrast and complement the detail of each delectable work of art.
RUFFLES!....What makes a wedding gown special? Extraordinary embellishments, of course! Just like the bride in her soft whimsical gown, ruffle wedding cakes are adorned with fabulous flounces and beautiful beading embellishments so divine they are good enough to eat!
CUT OUT APPLIQUE…These beautiful two dimensional, texture and detail rich creations are very much on trend. They are the perfect way to draw on the ‘theme’ of your wedding by adding decorative floral or print elements from your bouquet or wedding invitations. Applique details are iced on or cut out and applied for a three dimensional visual delight!
MULTI-DISPLAYS...Multi-display wedding cakes are created through the collaboration of a number of separate cakes that have a single unifying element tying the all together. In some cases this may be the colour of the fondant or a decorative element that is attributed to each cake. This is the perfect way to incorporate different flavours or style transitions to accommodate and reflect the taste of both the bride and the groom.
