Making fairytale weddings come true.

Month: October, 2012

A Formal Affair

Cuff links may just be a guy’s only shot at putting on “fun” jewellery. Seize the day with a unique design element or a nod to a favourite hobby. The Details (from left): Cartier rose gold. Kwiat diamond, onyx, and platinum. Wedgwood black jasper and gold horse-head. Dunhill gold-plated brass (mrporter.com).

DIY Green Wedding Boutoniére

Herbs are casual and aromatic, and perfect for a late summer or autumn wedding. Displayed here are an incorporation of blueberries with lavender thyme, oregano and sage wrapped with a sweet polkadot ribbon for contrast.

1: Start with a leaf stem like sage to be the backbone of your boutonniére. This leaf is just for support. 2. Place taller, lanky herbs such as lavender and rosemary on top of the leaf. It’s alright for them to sit higher than the first leaf. 3. In front, place smaller rounder, herbs like oregano or thyme blossoms or fruit like blueberries. Heavier items always look nicer at the bottom with the leaner stems poking out the top. 4. Secure with floral tape. 5. Wrap the ribbon around the stems several times to disguise the floral tape while leaving a length of ribbon free to tie up the ribbon at the back of the boutonniére.

Wedding Cake Centrepiece

Instead of a floral centrepiece, Christina and Peter of Oakville, California graced each table setting with a wedding cake at their reception. Homemade sugar flowers topped each centrepiece cake. On each cake, an embossed outer layer of Valrhona white chocolate covered a coating of white-chocolate buttercream. The baker used organic ingredients to create two flavours for the cake layers inside: chocolate butter cake filled with an espresso Bavarian cream, and lemon pound cake filled with lemon sabayon. So gorgeous!
