Pop!!

Really thrilled with the images from the Colour Pop photo shoot organised by Creative Brides in September for Wedding Ideas magazine. I love working with romantic imagery and faded vintage hues but it was so fun to work with some bright colours for a change.

Sometimes I think couples associate bright colours with a contemporary setting, but see how well they work against a rustic backdrop! A fun cake topper like this star bunting from Pop Pop Papier is a really brilliant way of picking up the colours in your décor without replicating them on the cake itself. Sprinkle cakes go with any scheme and can be made in confetti sponge (Madeira with sprinkles actually running through the cake) for a sweet surprise crunch.

Rainbow cake is a fun idea if you're opting for one tier. A plain rustic frosting is fine but really needs the addition of a topper to have some presence. Think about paper pompoms, tiny balloons, bunting (all available from Pop Pop Papier) or a perspex and glitter topper.

These neon pearls are devilishly difficult to get hold of, but worth the search. They're an inspired mix - flouro pink, orange, grey, pastel green, red and black - which I would probably never have put together myself, but look how the colours pop against the white frosting!!
