Ibiza weddings vintage style 2012
Yes the 2012 season is only just around the corner, already couples are organising and making preparations for a summer 2012 wedding on the sunny Ibiza Isle. Already many of my ‘brides to be’ have written detailing the style of wedding cake they would like, and it seems predominately to be ‘vintage style’ – which is absolutely gorgeous its romantic and almost ‘shabby chic’. Roses lend themselves to the vintage style perfectly as do soft pale dusky rose colours. I am so enjoying coming up with ideas and looking at ideas to make this style work to its best advantage.
Antique birdcages filled with fresh flowers for table centre pieces , lace throws and tablecloths plus candles make all for a romantic vintage feel. Of course the main decorative centrepiece should always be the wedding cake, therefore it is very important for me to get the exact styling right to match the couples ideas. Many have mood boards, which they send to me so that I can get the feel for the ‘theme colours and ideas of the day’. I love this work!!!!
When I get to meet ‘my’ couples I always find it so much easier to get this right as it is good for both myself and the wedding couple, although so much of my work is by email alone, so don’t worry if you cannot get to visit before your big day !!! We can work it out together.
This year is a little more difficult for couples to come and visit as once again we are without a direct flight to Ibiza during the winter months. There are of course options to travel here but it makes for a long tedious journey, besides the higher cost. Let us all hope that the petition to re-install direct flights has some impact on the new government!!!
I have recently been to the International cake exhibition, which is held at the NEC in Birmingham, this exhibition is essential for me for my business, as it allows me to see new products, follow trends, speak with suppliers etc. This year’s exhibition was the largest ever, with a record number of people visiting. Wedding cakes are seriously big business and the competition is fierce. Although here on Ibiza I have lots of competition regarding cakes, none are making anything like my style, my cakes are always bespoke, and made with love, with handmade edible decoration as opposed to ‘brought in’. When you look at websites you will see lots of pictures – but not always made by the advertiser J – My site shows ONLY my work.
