Scandinavian romance: Constellation cake inpires Nordic styled shoot

Wedding: -

Posted by lucy | 2 January, 2017

A dramatic wedding cake reflecting the night skies of Scandinavia was the inspiration behind this dreamy Nordic styled shoot.

Baker and creater Emma Thorburn, of Buns of Fun, dreamed up the three-tier wonder.

“We created a constellation-inspired cake in hues of blue, a gold leaf studded constellation and gold-sprayed gypsophelia on an oak log slice and a rack of antlers,” Emma says.

Foliage and greens in dark and berry shades, from Bramble and Berry Florist, reflected the Nordic landscape.

“Warming the palette we had plum velvet and sage velvet ribbons and in a riot of untamed bouquets and dioramas, gold speckled glass tealights and a sequinned table dressing coupled with a wildly autumnal centrepiece runner,” Emma says.

The bride and groom looked equally striking – the bride sported berry lips and a smoky eye and an almost-medieval look with blue velvet cape and faux fur. The groom wore loose chains and a buccaneer shirt.

“Stationery was fabulously created with elements of the shoot in the use of splashes of blue, gold tips, pine cones and feathers,” Emma says.

A great grey owl and Harrier hawk were even brought in to add a wild Nordic touch to the shoot, which was held at Baconsthorpe Castle in North Norfolk.
