Barn on the Bay
A lovely new wedding venue on a Northumbrian Coastal Farm that gives you complete control and flexibility to have Your Wedding, Your Way.
I can see a little trend starting with my blogs and projects, yes the seaside. Im just drawn to its beauty and energies and nothing better to walk along the sand and the sea rolling in, whether its in an exotic warm location or the northern coast. To be honest the rolling untouched sands of the Northumberland coast takes some beating in my opinion!
Calico Barn, between Morpeth and Alnwick has a lovely warm feeling and can now host intimate weddings for couples looking for a rustic barn experience. I was delighted to be invited to there first wedding showcase to display a wedding cake and thrilled to work with some amazing suppliers who styled the venue.

When you are invited to design a wedding cake for treehouse wedding with a secret garden theme, well my creative mind almost exploded! I loved every minute of making this cake and allowed me to have some fun at the same time.
A secret garden to me, means adventure, play, prettiness and exploring. I wondered how a cake would look with a secret door with a treasure of pretty blossom flowers.
I designed a cake with delicate colours and a light marbling. Look how pretty it looks in the setting of the treehouse and captured magically by Kimberley Waterson, photographer.
Kimberley Waterson brought together a fantastic group of local suppliers in a gorgeous venue, Alnwick Gardens. Ruby Tuesday Events styled the shoot, flowers and props.
Vintage at Number 18 provided some beautiful dresses which were original vintage or handmade as well as accessories for the shoot.
Amber from The Vintage Wedding Co made such a beautiful stationery suite to coordinate the look.
I was also delighted that this cake was featured as part of an international cake collaboration longside cake artists worldwide.

When I designed this cake, after meeting the lovely Lisa from The Bobby Pin , I dreamt up the concept of cake jewellery. I was thrilled with the results and now you can order bespoke cake jewellery! How gorgeous it looked next to the natural stone of the barn and the natural light pouring through from the courtyard. The styling from Karen, Ruby Tuesday Event was amazing, here are some of the images form the shoot x
A beach wedding at Newcastle Quayside
Its an absolute pleasure working with Faye Darcy as a part of the POP-UP wedding collective.
Just look at this fabulous Newcastle Quayside Seaside wedding, beautifully captured by Gavin Forster.
As part of the pop-up package I supply a semi naked cake, such a perfect cake for a smaller wedding. This one is decorated with one of my cake toppers, an anchor.
Gorgeous styling by Ruby Tuesday Events
I love Newcastle Quayside, it has very special memories for me, the market on a sunday, the culture and architecture and of course a great night out x
I am very fortunate to work with the Spa Hotel, Saltburn. It’s a lovely hotel, right on the bank, with breathtaking views across the sea and cliffs. I love it everytime I go there.
As a preferred supplier, I was delighted to be a part of this styled shoot to showcase the hotel for weddings, photos are by the very talented Martin Ker Photography.
We wanted to showcase the hotel with a stylish botanic theme and I was briefed to make a wedding cake. I thought it would be perfect to show couples how amazing a semi-naked cake can look with additional sweets and treats for their guests. Flowers are by the Countryside florist.

Look at the magic of this amazing location! Its an overlooked beauty spot in the beautiful North East, its Marsden.
I was thrilled to take part in this photoshoot by Kimberley Waterson Photography and some very talented wedding suppliers in our region.
When designing the wedding cake for this shoot I wanted to represent the sea, with its beautiful fresh colours and a marbelling effect which is quite a popular choice this wedding season. The constrast of the white floating sugar flowers works well and the gold accents to supplement the golden sands. Kimberley asked for a bit of glamour with the feathers xx
