Elegant Scottish-Style Shoot with Handpainted Thistle Luxury Wedding Cake

Earlier this year I got together with the wonderful Love Cat D Weddings and Fotomaki Photography to work on this Scottish themed shoot at the wonderful Trades Hall, featuring two grooms!  We worked with elegant tones of grey and purple to create a muted colour palette.

I designed an elegant wedding cake to go with the overall paired-back luxury style.  I wanted a cake design that was masculine, yet still beautiful.   Marbled icing is a very popular trend in wedding cakes this year, and so I chose this strong theme for the top two tiers, and a bottom tier to match, also in pale grey but with thin vertical lines.

I love sugar flowers so I was loathe to leave them off!  I chose whites and shades of deep blue/purple, and spruce green so that it wasn't too girly.  They were attached in an elaborate corsage with a wildflower feel, but they don't take over the wedding cake.
