Gold Plated Soiree

I have had a desire to style a golden metallic soiree for some time and I must admit i just love the rich and warm hues. During our recent workshop with Dewi of Sweet Bloom Cakes, we had two thoughts in mind, glamour and elegance. We were certainly set on the gold & bronze palette but wanted to add touches of white to the mix as gold can be little overpowering at times.

This season we were inspired by many things and one of them is the gorgeous wedding gown collection by Veluz Reyes. We decided to incorporate jewels, ruffles and lace into the latest cake collection by Sweet Bloom Cakes. Dewi also incorporated some delicate ranunculus on one of the cakes which tied in perfectly with the gold painted ropes. One of the highlights of the shoot was using the mini cakes which were adorned with sugar veil lace and a selection of handmade gems.

Choosing the venue was easy, as soon as I laid eyes on this luxurious venue called The Garden on Forest, I knew we had found the perfect spot. This amazing Heritage Estate is full of charm; it has some of the most beautiful chandeliers and whimsical d├ęcor. Working with Tanya from Tindale Images on this luxurious soiree was the icing on the cake. She captured each moment in her own unique way and interpreted the vision I had beautifully.
