Emma and Marc were married in the lovely house of Rathsallagh, Co. Wicklow in September 2015. When I met with Emma and Marc earlier in the year, they were easy going and that was the way the theme of the wedding went.

Wedding Cake Design

There only requirement was that they wanted the wedding cake to look rustic, yet elegant, for the floral arrangement to have plenty of green foliage and an assortment of white flowers, similar to Emma’s bouquet by The Informal Florist

Emma and Marc choose the italian meringue icing which gave the wedding cake a shiny white, yet soft finish and this worked really well with their style and colour palette for the day. They choose to have the chocolate biscuit cake, carrot with walnuts and orange cake and also the zesty lemon flavoured cake
