Peg Dolls – Handmade Wedding Cake Topper

My lovely customer Lorna got in touch to ask if I could make a peg doll wedding cake topper of her and her fiancé Stephen.

Firstly, we discussed what she would like  and I sent her my guide to photos that I need to work from. Once I’d received all the photos from Lorna, I could begin to draw and then pyrograph her very special commission.

Lots of lovely details were required to personalise their peg dolls. These included the beautiful sapphire jewellery she would be wearing on her special day.

Lorna’s dress had beautiful lace which was so much fun to represent, especially on the open-back panel.Bride peg doll wedding cake topper

I loved creating the representation of her special bouquet. Rather than traditional wedding flowers, it was made of a mixture of shimmering pearl and sparkling crystal brooches.

Mr T and I wish Lorna and Stephen a lifetime of happiness, love and laughter together, and hope that our special wedding topper will be a treasured memory of their big day.

Wedding Cake Toppers

Calling all Brides-to-be!

Our order books are open for Peg doll Wedding Cake Topper commissions for 2016!

If you are getting married this year, why not consider having yourselves caricatured into little wooden dolls? They sit snuggly on your cake for your big day, but can then be displayed and treasured for years to come?

Each peg doll Wedding Cake Topper is provided with rods to help secure them into your cake, as seen below.

These rods can then easily be removed after your big day, they simply pull out from the dolls. This allows you to sit your wedding cake topper on any shelf, table or flat surface where you would like to display them, just like our regular peg dolls.

These particular dolls were created for a beautiful wedding in November. The lovely bride Katie provided me with lots of photos to work from. These included details of the Bride and Groom’s outfits for the day, as well as her bouquet and hair trial.

Due to the work that goes in to each doll, and the number of requests on my order books, all custom orders can take four to six weeks to create. so please get in touch in plenty of time if you are thinking about having dolls made. This is even more important for a special ocassion.

Anything can go too – you don’t have to have a traditional bride and groom as your topper. I’ve previously posted a set of toppers I have made of a couple in their everyday clothes here.  I also have a very interesting commission that I’m soon to start work on which is far from traditional. But as the wedding is not until the Summer I can’t divulge any details yet!

If you are planning your very special big day, take a look at my Pinterest wedding board below for inspiration. Bride Magazine is also an excellent go-to resource for all the latest in the Wedding World.

Cake Topper Peg Dolls

Did you know our peg dolls also make the perfect wedding cake topper?

I was asked to make a set of peg dolls consisting of a couple and their much-loved dog. This  was a very special gift to a bride and groom from the Mother of the Bride. As the happy couple spend their time walking the pooch and building their dream home, comfy hoodies and jeans were the order of the day.

The little details, as always, were lovely to add to these peg dolls. I really enjoyed creating the plaited hair style on the bride. A little artistic licence allowed me to add a flower too! I loved the fact that I was told the groom wears shorts most of the year round. Reminds me of my own Mr T who never seems to feel the cold and is always in long shorts. Men eh?

My lovely customer confided that she hoped that they would use the peg dolls as their wedding cake topper. So imagine my delight when she sent me these pictures following the big day!

How sweet do they look on top of that beautiful naked wedding cake?

If you would like your peg dolls to be used as a cake topper,  let us know when you order. We will drill the dolls and provide you with removable wooden rods. These will secure your toppers into the cake, but are easily removed afterwards. Then your cake topper can sit on a shelf or table just like our regular peg dolls, allowing them to be treasured and enjoyed well beyond your special day. You can find a little bit more information about them here.
