Stephanie & Alexander - Peppers Creek Barrel Room

This was a truly wonderful couple, and indeed family. Stephanie and her mother came to us, with a vision for their reception that was stunning yet comforting. And I think that's really what Peppers Creek Barrel Room is all about. Rustic elegance, warm and inviting, for this winter wedding, yet at the same time an air of sophistication and timelessness that makes each guest feel a little special just setting foot in the room.

A beautiful moment happened right before the bride was set to walk down the aisle. An excited groom burst into the reception room, just to take a final look to see how amazing the room was. He thanked everyone for doing an incredible job, took the time to really savour that moment, and I have to say it spoke volumes of his character. It's such a wonderful experience to see the couple on their wedding day. The excitement in their eyes, the joy in their heart, it just warms you.

When it came to the food, Peppers Creek really outdoes themselves. The range on offer is extraordinary, and all I have ever heard is rave reviews. I know this couple took the food very seriously, especially the cakes and sweets. The cupcakes were all about flavour, warmth, and nature. We wanted to create a tower that made you want to devour them immediately! Lush fruits, chocolate, with just a hint of romantic refinement in those stunning lace cupcake wrappers.

When it came to offering gifts to her guests, this Bride wanted to let her guests to choose their own sweets and treats to take for the road. Keeping with a very New York/ Amy Altas style of clean crisp lines, bridal whites, allowing texture and shape to add deatil and variety to the table. Set on stark white platters, the candy was a mix of traditional sweets, and some imported varieties we ship in from the US. 

We created these gorgeous labels to match the travel-inspired stationary the couple used as part of their wedding. 

Sweets included champagne bubbes, rock candy swizzle sticks and salt water taffy that we imported. We made the marshmallows, macarons, strawberries, coconut ice and many more in store. We believe in making as many items as possible. That way they are free of preservatives, made fresh using local ingredients, and taste incredible.
