Cherry blossom wedding cake
They’re a day later than promised, but here’s a few more photos from my wedding day – taken by a good friend.
Orchid table decorations
The single orchid stem table decorations were arranged by Akane and her mum and looked fantastic. I’ve also added another photo of the pedestal arrangement from the day, before it got trimmed down, which I think looks like it’s exploding :o)
Our ‘explosive’ pedestal arrangement
The wedding cake was baked and iced by my mum (two layers of fruit cake and two of chocolate) it was her first wedding cake and she got a little help from a friend who used to make and decorate cakes professionally.
The decorations on the cake were done by a friend of ours who offered months ago to do it. All of the flowers, buds and bracts were hand made out of sugar paste. I think a few friends got roped in to helping but I was amazed by the end result. We chose the cherry blossom to give a Japanese theme to the traditional cake.
My wedding cake!
It all went so fast :o)
