leave a comment

If you’re in the process of planning a wedding and struggling for ideas for your wedding cake, we’ve picked out a few of our favourites that will definitely inspire you (and probably make you hungry!) Here at James Davies wedding photography in Nottingham, we’ve been lucky enough to see our fair share of absolutely amazing wedding cakes.

Quirky, Personalised 3 Tiered Wedding Cake

For those looking for something a little different, this quirky wedding cake is sure to make an impression on your guests. We love the fact that it is just so personal; the cake toppers lovingly crafted into miniature versions of the bride and groom from icing are gorgeous. The middle layer has been designed to resemble a tree trunk with the couple’s initials carved into it to look like wood. It’s even complete with knots and grain to create the effect of bark. The woodland feel is continued in the top and bottom tier, which are decorated with large white flowers made from icing, and blades of grass around the base.

Traditional Tiered Wedding Cake with White Royal Icing

Tiered cakes have always been a traditional wedding staple, and this gorgeous example is a beautifully classic example. Finished with deep purple ribbon to compliment the day’s accessories, this cake also features delicate hearts finely crafted from white icing to add interest and testure to each individual cake. Topped with a trio of white roses, this is a gorgeous example of a classic and elegant tiered wedding cake.

Modern Floral Tiered Wedding Cake

This gorgeous wedding cake is a contemporary twist on a classic tiered design. Although the white royal icing, ribbon and tiered arrangement are very traditional, this couple have opted for a modern floral design that cascades down the length of the cake. The large yellow gerberas, orange roses and splashes of green foliage all delicately crafted from sugar icing make for a bright, cheerful cake with plenty of personality.

Groomsmen Outfit Ideas from Nottingham Wedding Photographer

Floral Buttonholes

A classic traditional male accessory at a wedding is the floral buttonhole, seen here in pale pink. The groom wears the same shade and complementing the pink of the groomsmen’s ties, which ties everything in nicely. I particularly like the way that the groom wears grey with a darker tie and brown shoes, a refreshing contrast to the dark navy of his groomsmen.

Blue Suits and Leather Shoes

This is lovely example of a great colour scheme for groom and groomsmen. I really like the royal blue of the groomsmen’s suits, complete with tan leather belts and shoes and complimented by pale blue silk ties and handkerchiefs. The groom himself wears a blue suit in a slightly darker shade, and tan brogues with blue detail to subtly distinguish him from his groomsmen.

Bow Ties and Chequered Waistcoats

This great waistcoat and bow tie ensemble was sure to make a big impression on this groom’s big day. We loved the quirky floral fabric of the bow tie and the clashing checks of the waistcoat – it just worked! You’ll notice beautiful little leather covered buttons and a pocket watch chain add to this distinctly vintage look. I ensured that the bow tie was the focal point of this photo by getting the groom to casually tweak it as he stood, drawing attention this particular accessory and guiding the eyes up towards his face.

It’s not just the ladies that have a lot to think about when it comes to wedding dresses and bridesmaids outfits – oh no! Groomsmen and grooms have also got their work cut out for them when it comes to looking smart and stylish on the big day. As a professional wedding photographer in Nottingham and Mansfield, James Davies has had the pleasure of photographing some really fantastic groom and groomsmen outfits, some of which are classic and traditional, and others quirky and individual!
