Caroline & Trevor - Chateau Elan

Caroline & Trevor were one of our gorgeous couples, that really captured our hearts. They wanted their cake and gifts to truly reflect them, and the beautiful Hunter Valley. We found our inspiration for both these in their stunning yet simplistic invitations.

The understated cake was a simple ivory three tier cake, with a sweet little olive tree at the base. It kept the theme subtle, but helped the couple link the wedding cake to the rest of the tables.

I love these toppers! They were so cute. So personal, not too serious, but not so cutesy as to take away for the refined reception room. It really think that's really what wedding design is all about. Striking that balance between personalisation and keeping with a consistent feel and theme. Today's couples want a wedding that looks classic, elegant, timeless, but yet is relaxed enough for their guests to feel comfortable all evening, show their personal style and reflect their love. 

The gifts for the guests were a last minute addition. After looking at many sweets, Caroline opted for a elegant hand piped version of that olive tree, but incorporating the colour in the bridesmaids and flowers for some of them. The tables were stunning. And I have to hand it to this couple. They designed their entire wedding style themselves, and really pulled it off. It was breathtaking when we walked in the room. Just perfect!
