Crazy Wedding Season

I'm happy to say that the crazy wedding season is keeping me more than busy and its now got to the stage where I am having to turn clients down because I just can't fit them in.  This is usualy the case between Aug and Oct when last minute brides-to-be realise that its time to get the finale details sorted - only to find out that most of us that make personalised cake toppers have been fully booked for some time now.

I have taken orders for cake toppers two years in advance which to me is super organised for some brides-to-be and its also great to get them in my diary!

I have had to put my wedding favours website to one side for now as I just don't have the time that is needed to build it up and get it live but I hope by next year it will be ready.

Pictures of a couple of sets of toppers that have kept me busy.

Some More Toppers Done in May

Forgot these ones:

A well travelled bride and groom with passports, champage, roses and chocolates.  I enjoyed doing the fine detail on the dress and it was my first box of chocolates and champage bottle so was pretty chuffed with myself.

Bride wanted to be sat on her Hetty Hoover with leg in the air showing off her garter while leaning up against her policeman groom

May News

May was a tornado of mishaps, fighting red tape and a much needed short weekend break in Derby with great friends!

Our car was written off by something that fell off the back of a white van - who did not even stop! Whatever it was it blew out two tyres and damage the undercarriage. Long story short we managed to buy another car which turned out to cost a further £600 with new tyres, exhaust, full service and repair the air con! Well you never know, we may just get a decent summer this year .

Just glad that May is out of the way - apart from the our time spent in Derby that is.

Anyhoooo, a few of the toppers I managed to get done:

Military Groom with his Bride and their son in matched military uniform.

One happy bride and mummy-to-be

Poker playing bride and groom - bride wanted more chips as she always wins!
