Wedding Cakes The hottest trends and predictions from the experts

by emma 3. October 2013 12:26

Choosing the wedding cake is one of the more fun parts of wedding planning, but a lot of thought goes into the design before the final masterpiece is created.

The look of the cake often reflects the 'theme' of the wedding, the flowers used and the bride's dress, while the flavour has to complement the food it follows or the drink it's served with.
While the more traditional cakes used to be square in shape, nowadays couples tend to ask for round cakes and add personal touches to the finished piece. Many wedding designers are incorporating edible lace or intricate sugar flowers into their cakes to match the bride's gown, while others are getting requests for bold colours and hand painted patterns on their cakes.

HELLO! Online has chatted to the most respected wedding cake experts in the industry who attended this year's Cake and Bake Show, and gave their predictions on the future of wedding cake design.

Not only will we see extravagant and more personal cakes, say the experts, but a strong influence from the leaders in the cake market — Australia and the US. Dessert tables are becoming a popular option, alongside the cake, as well as groom's cakes which are more of a novelty standing next to the masterpiece.


Wedding delayed as ring-bearing owl goes for a sleep

by Katie 25. September 2013 10:41

A wedding service was delayed when an owl bearing rings fell asleep in the church roof.


Darcy the barn owl was meant to fly down the aisle at Holy Cross Church in Sherston, Wiltshire, and deliver rings to Sonia Cadman and Andrew Matley.


Instead the one-year-old owl flew into the church roof to roost. It took about an hour to get her down.


The Reverend Christopher Bryan said: "We tried all we could to get it down but it just wouldn't budge."


He said the owl seemed "very happy" in the roof and could not be tempted down with a treat.


"It must have been an hour before they got a ladder to rescue it," he said.


'Absolute stitches'

The specially-trained owl had been hired by Ms Cadman for the wedding, which took place at the weekend.


It was a surprise for her fiance, who is interested in falconry.


Darcy was only trusted with replica rings, with the real bands kept in Mr Matley's pocket.


"The owl was meant to deliver the rings to the glove my husband-to-be was wearing," Ms Cadman said.


"But she just flew straight past the glove and straight up into the top of the church and sat in the rafters.


"She shut her eyes and went to sleep."


Despite the delay, Ms Cadman said it had not spoilt the wedding day for the couple, who are from near Burford, in Oxfordshire, "in any shape".


"We thought it was funny and the guests were in absolute stitches," she said.

Olympic champion Victoria Pendleton and Scott Gardner tie the knot

by emma 10. September 2013 12:09

Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton has swapped her gold medal for a stunning David M Robinson wedding band after marrying her performance scientist fiancé Scott Gardner.

 Speaking exclusively about their big day to HELLO! Magazine, Scott, 37, and Victoria, 32, tenderly recalled the highlights of their day.

"Seeing Scott at the top of the aisle is an image I'll keep in my mind forever," said Victoria. "I'm very lucky to have met him. If I hadn't had done sport, our paths would never have crossed."

 The London 2012 cycling star looked radiant in a floor-length gown by British designer Suzanne Neville, and captured her fiancé's attention from the moment she walked into the church.

 "I was just blown away by how she looked," said Scott. "It was the vintage look, the shape of her body, the smile on her face. The day was amazing, brilliant and beautiful."

 Scott and Victoria first met when the performance scientist was assigned to take care of the Team GB cycling team. The lovebirds tied the knot at Colshaw Hall, a country manor house in Cheshire, in front of a host of celebrity guests.
