A beach wedding - Kate and Damien 12.11.10

We just have to share some of the details of Kate and Damien's special day with you. Married in Barwon Heads in Victoria recently, we were lucky enough to design their seaside themed invitations and matching event stationery - plus of course the cake! The wedding cake was a fruit cake lovingly made by a friend of the bride's mum, and we covered it in ivory fondant to match the bride's dress. The custom made cupcake tower featured the same printed seashell paper as the wedding stationery, making it the perfect backdrop for the subtle sea themed cupcakes.

The stationery features hand-drawn seashells, in colours of the couple's choice which of course is carried throughout the rest of the wedding festivities.

The bombonierre for each guest was a scrummy chocolate mud or vanilla cupcake with fresh homemade lemon curd filling, topped with vanilla buttercream frosting and packaged in cute little favour boxes. We attached sweet thank you tags with a little message from the newlyweds.

The venue for the reception was perfect - At The Heads, right on the beach. The dark stormclouds of the early evening provided the perfect backdrop to the bridal table - just as the girls changed into their thongs for the night!

Stationery for the reception included traditional placecards, along with menu cards and table numbers, and a large seating plan which sat at the entrance to the venue.

The couple were given a beautiful cake server and matching knife from some good friends which were engraved with words from the invitation - the perfect ending for the cake!!

Such a lovely wedding and a great couple - all the best for the future Kate & Damo! xx
