Real Wedding – Wedding Cake Toppers, Cake Flags & Bunting

Cam and Sarah were married at Ettington Park, we just love their mint green and peach colour scheme. After the ceremony they had an afternoon tea party, the tables were piled high with home baked cookies and sweet treats which looked so delicious and we were thrilled to see a few of our wedding cake toppers. They had chosen our sister company, Passion for Flowers for their florals and the reception tables had an eclectic mix of glass bottles in the centre with an abundance of peach and cream blooms.

Wedding Cake Toppers – Cupcake flags from washi tape

Cam and Sarah made their own little flags for the sweet treats on their dessert table. These flags are made from our decorative washi tape and canape flags, find out how to make the cupcake flags here. Dotted in and around the home made paper flags were a few of our rustic flags tied with twine. We love the selection of sweet treats on offer.

They hung hessian just married bunting from the front of the dessert table for an extra touch.

Wedding Cake Toppers – Mini Bunting

Their wedding cake was a stack of miniature cakes, the top tier had a slightly larger cake for cutting. We think the the mr and mrs cake topper bunting looks fab with peach roses. mr and mrs bunting wedding cake topper mr and mrs cake topper bunting peach mint green wedding cake

Wedding Table Decorations

The room was filled with white paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling, what an impact as guests enter the room! Then table decorations were quite simple with an eclectic mix of glass bottles, vases and jars. They used a few of our larger sweetie jars as vases which work really well for this look. Scattered around the venue on bookshelves and window sills were more floral decorations, flowers in jam jars wrapped in hessian and little succulents in jam jars. Extra little touches included our let the love grow stickers.
