Flower Power

Often we we think about wedding cakes, thoughts turn quickly to flowers. But how do you pick the right flowers for your dream wedding cake? We've got a few suggestions to help guide your choice...

1. Lilies

Looking for a centerpiece that will wow your guests? The lily is the answer. 

Heavenly, sophisticated and grand, lilies provide an elegant focal point for your guests’ eyes, emphasising the truth and honour of marriage. 

In the above below we’ve partnered this with Lily of the Valley to accentuate sweetness and create a refined look.

2. Roses

Perhaps the most emotive and evocative flowers of all, the symbolism of roses is steeped in tradition. 

Long considered a symbol of beauty and love, the rose figures into many myths and fairy tales. 

Despite their popular use, the rose is far from boring, particularly when it comes to color - see the purple roses on the cake above.

3. Gerberas

Traditionally seen in summer, gerberas are associated with joy and happiness, making them a great choice for a wedding cake. 

They’re bright and colourful and specifically convey cheerfulness. As a variety of daisy they also represent loyal love, proving to be the perfect bright addition to your summer wedding. 

4. Bouquets

Don’t be restricted to just one flower - the day is yours so why not have a bouquet of elegant flowers on your wedding cake too? 

On the cake above you can see an eclectic mix of roses, gerberas and even fantasy wildflowers to create the perfect summer ambiance. 

Of course there's lots of other options too! Be sure to check out the wedding cakes section of the website where our latest designs are, and get in contact if you have any questions!
