Macaron wedidng tower

An intimate wedding with a colourful macaron wedding cake

It has been a really busy weekend here at Medici Macarons HQ – 3 weddings in total!

On Friday Amanda and Dave got married at the National Trust’s Gibson Mill in Hardcastle Crags, Hebden Bridge. It’s a stunning venue deep in the heart of the woodland and set next to the river. It is quite a magical place.

Amanda wanted a macaron wedding cake that reflected the colours of the bunting that she had made to dress the ceremony room where she was to get married. But she also wanted macarons that were the flavours that she and her family loved. After some discussion I created a tower of hazelnut, pistachio, lemon curd and strawberry macarons. Both the hazelnut and pistachio macarons were made with 100% pure nut paste, the strawberry macarons had a secret centre of homemade strawberry jam and the lemon curd macarons had a secret centre of zesty homemade lemon curd.

The tower was beautifully dressed with flowers from Amanda’s own garden and were arranged by Amanda and her best friend. It was lovely to see these friends working together to make the floral base and crown for the macaron tower.

Amanda’s wedding was an intimate affair and the macaron wedding cake she chose held 100 macarons. Whatever the size of tower you would like I think this shows what a beautiful alternative a macaron tower can be to a traditional wedding cake.

A Dior Inspired Wedding Macaron Tower

As you will know I love doing wedding photo shoots so when I was asked by Minihaha at Brachetto Weddings if I would like to be involved in a Dior inspired shoot with whites and golds my answer was a definite YES!

For a while I have been wanting to create a different style of wedding tower so I got my thinking cap on and created this tower. Using glass bead tiers and a white glass pedestal cake stand I made a column of macarons which was then beautifully dressed with flowers from Kirsty at Minnie Bees

Here’s a photo of me constructing the macaron wedding tower (caught unbeknown to me on camera by the talented, lovely and just a little bit sneaky Kathryn). In total the column held about 180 macarons and took nearly an hour for me to create. I hope you will agree it has made a stunning centrepiece and a great alternative to a traditional wedding cake.

Some of the macarons were decorated with edible gold beads and where used to provide detail at the front of the wedding tower and at the top around the top floral arrangement.

Wedding Photo Shoot

On Monday 17th March myself and the other talented members of the Bolton Abbey Weddings headed out into North Yorkshire to the stunning Cruck Barn at Appletreewick. This was my very first photo shoot and I had no idea what to expect. We had two brides and one groom, various stunning wedding dresses, a couple of changes of hair and make-up and the decoration of the barn in to a vintage, whimsical, country wedding, complete with wedding cakes and macarons of course!

The photographers were Colin and Heather from the Colin Murdoch Studio who worked like Trojans capturing the whole day and the various transformation that occurred. I’ve included some of their photo’s here.
