Besides being a food lover, photographer, I’ve always been deeply interested in the wedding industry; more specifically planning, decorating and photography – oops did I just sum up the wedding itself??
I have done several weddings, and its always a joy to share the important day of two bonding love birds… not only that but I love to absorb the atmosphere on the day – well perhaps not the stress, but I love the sights and sounds of it all. I have an occasional habit of browsing wedding photography & styling blogs during my lectures… my neighbors must either think I’m getting married or desperate… hohoho
Even though I can imagine the trauma of planning your OWN wedding… I can’t help thinking about it every now and then anyways (now lets be frank, I’m sure I’m not the minority of girls who spares a moment at these thoughts!), especially since one of my friends, the first amongst us is getting married next year. It sure makes us realize that we’re soon hitting marriage period.. eep.
But anyway, amongst my random thoughts of “oh what colours should my wedding be?”
Tiffany Blue and Rosey Red is one of my favourite colour combinations, for wedding or not, being a lover of Red I just think the Tiffany blue really gives a lighter, fresh mood to the deep, or contrasted red. Not only that, but it can come across a little ‘retro’, or country-style to some point…
My first acquaintance with a Tiffany Blue and Rosey Red wedding would have to be that of Jessica Claire‘s (leading wedding photographer in the US!) engagement party organized and styled by Chenin Boutwell.

Loving the idea, brides-to-be?
I only thought I’d share this with you because 2 weekends ago, my friend at Cupcakes by M made a wedding cake for her wedding cakes portfolio (which also doubled as a birthday cake for my friend! you can imagine how over joyed the birthday girl was when she saw it!)
I, myself was in love with the colour scheme! Red, white and a light aqua blue – the design itself is so simple, but elegant. Totally love the details with the handmade red roses!
2 tiered Chocolate Truffle torte with chocolate butter cream between the layers, the whole cake covered in butter cream, marzipan and decorated with fondant! Red roses are edible of course ;D
As you can see in this closer shot, the little ‘pearl’ like decor, I believe was done with a tube of white decorative icing?
We had the cake over a ‘Tea & Cake” session at my place. Yummy, my favourite flavour by Cupcakes by M! Chcoolate Truffle Torte; not too rich yet just moist enough! Absolutely yummo with the butter cream layer
Uh-Oh, Did I just feel a little rumble in the tumtum?
‘ Everything that’s wonderful is what I feel when we’re together ~ ‘
I had the chance to help my friend at Cupcakes by M at her first wedding event; transporting, setting up and photography her wedding cupcakes for a couple’s big day!
I had little idea what I was expecting, all I knew was… there would be roses, and tea cups - immediately I thought, garden tea party themed?
So the day came, 7am in the morning, I arrived at Martina’s place and she was just doing the final touches. Now transporting the cupcakes for a wedding is another responsibility for myself as the driver; who kept thinking “drive like a granny”, fortunately it arrived safe and sound!
The wedding ceremony and reception took place at Centennial Park, Sydney – it’s a big park with many beautiful spots suit for a wedding… but this couple specifically chose one with the duck pond as a backdrop, with beautiful trees nearby. Although the light when we arrived was a little harsh (as you will see in the photos below), but I can imagine as the day dawned it will be a really beautiful sight!
I’ve never seen a wedding unfold before my eyes… so this was a first time… although as a ‘passerby’, the atmosphere was great…. especially with the sight of beautiful flowers and decor slowly put into place. But our responsibility was, to set up the more important features of this wedding… the 7 tier tower of cupcakes! I shall let the photos speak for itself!
While setting up…
There were tea pots and tea cups!
Look at the details of decor on the table!!
Yes, the cupcake tower belonged on the ‘sweet things’ table… along with green apples, ribbons, feathers, giant lollipops.. mm mm!
Then there was the signature Cupcakes by M bouquet with beautiful lace butterflies!
The decor on this table is to die for!
As you can see, this was the more ‘tea party’ table, now how fitting is the bouquet of cupcakes? If I weren’t so familiar with cupcake bouquets, i would say it blended in quite nicely with the flowers! and see the birdcage on the right? the decorator later put a real canary in there!
What I loved about this wedding is, there were many different assorted flowers – which of course fit well with the wedding theme! Good job to Mosi’s Florist !
Don’t you just hate it when you ‘capture beautiful light accidentally’? in this case, it was the last look at the wedding on our way out ~
After much hard work – Cupcakes by M has completed an impressive job again! Looking forward to her next wedding!
