Wedding Wednesday: Beautiful Cake Toppers

Happy Wednesday folks!

If you’re a regular reader you hopefully enjoyed last weeks Wedding Wednesday post, completely dedicated to wedding stationery. Due to the fabulous feedback received, I’m pleased to be featuring more inspiring designers in this weeks instalment.

Cake toppers are an essential part of any special wedding celebration and are one of the most important wedding decorations that will be purchased for your big day. I’ve been completely obsessed with beautiful cakes for many years now and I really enjoy browsing through my cake related Pinterest boards on a regular basis. (Unless you have unlimited sweet treats to hand, it’s always best to do this on a full stomach if you’re anything like me!)

  

Thinking back to last year when I was planning my own wedding, I remember sending my cake decorator endless Pinterest links containing lots of amazing wedding cakes. I eventually found an absolutely stunning handmade cake topper to go alongside the beautiful cake, which I wrote all about here. The cake decorator took full inspiration from my cake topper and designed the cake around it. How amazing is that? I absolutely love browsing the web for wedding related decorations, so it only felt right to feature some of the most stunning cake toppers on my blog.

Pictured above, are two amazingly adorable wooden peg cake toppers, handmade by Rose at Blossom Cake Toppers. These cake toppers are hand painted with plenty of love and care and are fully customised to look like the happy couple. This really is something that can be cherished for a very long time and will always bring back memories of your special day. I would be very happy to proudly display these cake toppers on my dresser, showing them off a million times over. Yes, really! When my husband and I got married last year, we didn’t have Felix (our miniature poodle) at the time, but if we did I definitely would have liked to have seen him in hand painted peg form, thats for sure.

Next on the inspiration list are these wonderful fabric wedding birds, beautifully handmade by Emma at The Cotton Potter. Can you imagine these sitting pretty on top of your special cake? I certainly can. Emma’s birds are all completely handmade and are made to order. Each bird is carefully sewn together from Harris tweed and other pure wool fabrics. Having your birds individually designed means that your cake topper will be completely unique and truly special. How exciting does that sound?

Emma’s attention to detail is beyond words and her photography completely brings her fabulous creations to life. I imagine any wedding photographer would have plenty of fun photographing these, and you’re bound to want to display these for years to come, as you would with Rose’s peg cake toppers above. Please tell me you’re feeling inspired now? If so, you’ll definitely enjoy the rest!

This marvellous creation above is made by Louise at Pops of Colour. Who doesn’t love confetti? Have you ever thought of having a confetti wedding cake topper? It’s something I would absolutely consider if I could plan my special day all over again. It’s such a fun idea and such a great way to bring lots of bright colour into your decor. Louise offers a choice of colours, meaning you can customise your confetti in accordance with your wedding theme. You can also choose from a range of confetti letters, so if you feel like having a ‘Mr & Mrs’ or ‘Love’ cake topper, it just might be possible! Yay! How awesome?

You’re noticing a theme here aren’t you? More birds! Why not? These beauties are lovingly handmade by Manmeet at White Rain Designs. These ceramic songbirds can be personalised to match your wedding theme. You can even add your own initials. All of Manmeet’s products are designed and painted by herself using earthenware ceramics and non toxic paints and glazes. I for one adore bright colours and anything personalised, so these would definitely suit me to the ground. How about you?

Last but certainly not least, are these utterly adorable hand sculpted ‘love mice’ cake toppers, made by Natalia at Heartmade Cottage. Natalia uses polymer clay and offers a selection of finishes. Each item is handcrafted to order, meaning your mouse couple will be one of a kind. I love the sound of that! Don’t you think they are absolutely adorable? Did you let out a little squeal of cuteness? I certainly did.

I really hope this post has inspired you and given you plenty of wedding cake topper ideas. If you’ve clicked through to Paper Doily Party Shop before, you may have noticed that I absolutely love making cake toppers myself and offer a very colourful selection of them, all lovingly handmade in my home studio in Bath, Somerset. I’ve made cake toppers for many happy couples and it’s such a wonderful feeling to know that my creations have been part of lots of amazing wedding celebrations across the globe. I have no doubt that the wonderful designers featured above have experienced the same feeling.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading and please let me know if you’d like to be featured on Wedding Wednesday’s, I’d love to hear from you.

Happy wedding planning!
