Wedding Season is upon us again. And it’s safe to say I get booked up well in advance for my personalised Wedding Cake Toppers. I have three orders on my books for 2020 already!
Here is a lovely order from last year. I can safely share it with you now that the Bride and Groom’s day is over!
When Susie sent her pictures to work from, I was delighted to see all the little details I’d be adding. These really make it a truly personalised wedding cake topper!
I couldn’t wait for her slot to come around so that I could get to work on them. As always, I start by drawing out the designs on the dolls until I am happy. Next, I make them permanent by burning the lines into the wood with my pyrography iron.
Then, I can can get to the laborious but ever-so-rewarding work of adding the colour to bring them to life. My Bride and Groom wedding cake toppers use a variety of materials in addition to my usual coloured pencil. This could include paint, liquid pearls, fine glitter and metallic and pearlescent finishes.
Here’s the beautiful Bride in all her glory….
She had a wonderful veil. Not all Brides chose to include them as they can obscure some of the dress details, so it was nice to be able to create my first one in a little while.
She is also wearing a beautiful, sparkling crystal vintage belt. I loved bringing this to life by getting my sparkles out! (That sounds like a terrible euphemism – sorry!!!)
Unfortunately my photos don’t do just how pretty that little dress and belt are, with it’s painted lace, and pearls created using my special mediums.
But luckily for you, I caught it on video 🙂
It’s deliberately out of focus at some points to demonstrate the light catching the sparkles. You can’t see this whilst it’s in focus! The video also shows the sheen I use to give the effect of a veil more closely.
The groom also has lots of attention to detail! Look at that tiny pocket watch on a chain.
The suit is a gorgeous navy, with a purple checked pattern woven through it. What an absolute treat for me to recreate! You know how much I love a pattern!! I think this dapper fellow is one of my favourite grooms that I have created to date.
Susie kindly sent me a couple of pictures of their wedding day and allowed me to share them with you. As always, it’s great to see my cake toppers out in “the wild”!
It is always an absolute pleasure to create a personalised wedding cake topper for a Bride and Groom, and wish Susie and her husband a lifetime of happiness together.
