Wedding Bells in Shoreditch

Last weekend, or was it the weekend before? Time is flying by and it's a teeny bit terrifying... 

Anyway, the other weekend, the rather delightful Ross and Melody tied the knot in Shoreditch, and commissioned me to make some little treats for their most marvellous day!

Melody had nine beautiful bridesmaids, and needed a little something to add an extra snazz to their bouquets... so this is what I stitched:

And as a wedding gift to them, I made the toppers for their wedding cake....

That cake just looked amazing, and I managed to match up the metallic red leather on the skulls, perfectly with the metallic red heart on the cake!

The toppers also double up as brooches, as a lovely little reminder of their big day:

You can see more wedding commissions that I have made, in this photo album over on the Facebook page.

And while you're at it, check out the fabulous Mister Phill's blog, which feature the Cakenport wedding heart and the most beautiful Spanish wedding from last Summer.

So, if you are getting married, and would like something a little bit different to pop on top of your cake, to pin on your bridesmaids, or even an applique on a vintage suitcase to store your wedding dress in, after the event, don't hesitate to give me a shout to discuss further... anything is possible!
