We had the pleasure over the weekend of creating the wedding cake and custom invitations/stationery for the lovely Aleisha McCormack; comedian and reporter from Channel 10's The Circle!Aleisha and Richard got married at the historic Boyd Baker House near Bacchus Marsh in Victoria - a fantastic 1960's architecturally-designed home nestled amongst the dense Aussie bushland.
Aleisha approached us late in 2011 to assist in creating the details for her big day. The brief was simple - use the amazing house and its surrounds as inspiration for a clean and simple design!
Aleisha hand-sewed the fabric bunting and napkins and her mate Kath from Frank Food and Me also made some extra delicious looking sweets for the dessert table. If you've been following Aleisha's wedding journey on The Circle, you'd know that she is a huge fan of incorporating DIY elements in weddings and everything came together perfectly on the day.
The 60's mod-look interior inspired the 'circles' cake design, with the addition of a statement bloom and yellow ombre effect giving it a contemporary twist. The stationery suite featured watercolour lettering along with a hand-sketched illustration of the Boyd Baker house. These techniques were also applied to the place cards, seating chart, table menus, favour boxes and the dessert buffet sign.
It's a rare treat to chat with the bride and groom before their ceremony so it was wonderful to experience their reactions to the reception set-up and to meet face to face! Congratulations guys, thanks for letting us be a part of the "Leish Rich wedding team" and for being such relaxed and hilariously funny clients!
