Broughton Hall Weddings and Celebrations Festival 23rd March 2014

Yesterday Medici Macarons attended their very first wedding fair! I had a thoroughly good time and met some lovely brides and grooms who were able to sample my lovely macarons. Broughton Hall wanted to create a different type of wedding fair from the usual – no trestle tables here with exhibitors standing behind. Spread over 3 very different and stunning venues exhibitors had the opportunity to recreate a wedding scene.

I was based in the modern, light filled Utopia and had the glass presentation table that the wedding cake would normally be displayed upon.

I also had a small table to display my other macaron wedding towers. My absolute favourite was the vintage inspired 4 tier glass cake stand filled with 4 different coloured macarons and dressed with beautiful ranunculus and Spring blossom.

My extra special lavender macarons decorated with silver leaf were displayed on one of the styled tables in the main room and they looked stunning. They were packed in intricately cut silver favour boxes, lined with a deep purple tissue paper and tied with deep purple ribbon.

The tastings went down exceptionally well with lots of lovely comments – the best being from the father of a bride to be who said my macarons were the ‘most suprising thing I have ever eaten’ – it seems he wasn’t quite expecting the pastel coloured macaron to pack such a gorgeous flavoursome punch!

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.
