Choose high tiers and elegant icing for your neoclassical wedding cake

Style your wedding cake with straight lines, architectural details and alabaster colours… this beautiful white tiered wedding cake brings to mind the architecture of Greece and Rome with high tiers and softest white icing. Details are kept to a minimum with elegant clusters of the thinnest sugarpaste flowers. By Krishanthi – www.cakesbykrishanthi.co.uk

Choose a venue with wow factor to impress your guests

The Hurlingham Club has a magnificent arched ceiling your guests will love – it’s a blank canvas with plenty of natural daylight for wedding photography – and needs little decor to create the most luxurious wedding reception space for your luxury celebration.

Statement wedding flowers for opulent classical style

Many neoclassical objects were decorated with swags and festoons and these hanging garlands of fabric, ribbons, flowers and bud-like motifs known as husks were based on Classical Roman decoration. The flower arrangements and cake design incorporates these features, together with a contemporary twist added to the theme. ” ~ Petra Opperman.

Choose classic flowers for a luxury wedding bouquet

Classic roses form the basis of our model’s luxury bouquet. Use your favourite roses in soft whites and palest pinks, adding colour and texture with smaller flowers and foliage. Match your bouquet to your table centres or choose one set of statement flowers: a stunning bouquet or a single display table if your budget won’t allow for too many elaborate floral arrangements.
