Here at Boho Weddings we LOVE cake! and we especially love different ideas for wedding cakes! So many people these days are deciding to bake their own cake, with the rise of baking programs like the Great British Bake Off, the new trend for baking is big business! So if you are currently looking for new cake ideas for your wedding or party then todays post is just for you! I have enlisted the help of cake expert Jamie from Make Bake to tell us more about his fresh ideas for wedding cakes and to give us a few recipe ideas! I hope you like them! I’d love to know what sort of cake you have chosen for your wedding, are you making your own? If so what have you decided on?
I’ll pass the Blog over to Jamie from Make Bake………
Getting married will be one of the sweetest moments of your life (we hope)! If ever an occasion called for lashings of buttercream and booze-soaked fruit sponges, it’s this one. Unless you can find a really unique wedding cake bakery, your big day is going to have a pretty normal, ‘cut and paste’ pudding. That’s why we’d recommend baking your own and having fun with the design! Here are some of our favourite inspirational wedding sweets that are just a little bit special…
What could be more decadent than a deep, rouge, layered sponge, frosted with white icing? This showstopper won’t last long, and it’s perfect for ‘grown up’ receptions!

Today I am delighted to be able to share with you the last of 2013′s Diary of a Boho Brides wedding. This time it is the turn of the gorgeous Charlotte and Alan who’s journey we followed last year. Having chosen the countryside of the Bronte country for their wedding, they decided to mirror this with a rustic woodland theme, mixed with classic touches, along with a whole host of DIY and handmade details. Charlotte looks radiant in a stunning Ian Stuart Dress, and the whole day has been captured perfectly by Paul and Kelly from Paul Joseph Photography. It is lovely to see their day come to light after their many months of writing for the Blog, they certainly did everything they said they were going to and all the ideas have come out just as they planned. A beautiful day for a beautiful couple.
‘Our wedding was more beautiful than we ever dreamed it would be, full of love, laughter, music and dancing with all our favourite people. Simply the best day ever!’
Charlotte and Alan were married on the 7th of September in a ceremony at Saint Michael and All Angles church in Haworth, in the heart of Bronte Country. This was followed by a reception at The Alma Inn, Laneshaw Bridge. ‘Together with our little pooch Paddy we spend a lot of weekends in Haworth, walking on the moorland, the inspiration for many great novels by the Bronte sisters before enjoying tea and cakes at one of its many tearooms. The church sits prominently at the top of the famous cobbled street and is simply stunning. Everyone is welcome in this church even our little fury friends so with our little Paddy as guest of honour it was a no brainer! 96 guests attended the church and wedding breakfast, with 200 attending our evening reception for a midnight feast and dancing the night away to a live band. Our wedding was 2 years in the planning….and I loved every single minute of it.’

Todays wedding is a stunning Manchester Wedding. Set at the Manchester town hall this wedding is full of modern touches and is incredibly stylish. The couple chose the Room restaurant for their reception which mirrored the spender of the Town hall perfectly. Keeping with the modern feel of the day they chose beautiful blooms and THE most amazing cup cakes. Helen the bride looks absolutely stunning in the most gorgeous David Fielden dress that I just LOVE! everything about this wedding is simple but super stylish and has been captured perfectly by Nicola from Nicola Thompson Photography
I know it’s cheesy and corny but it really was the best day of our lives
Helen and Nicholas were married on the 6th of October at Manchester Town Hall followed by reception at the Room Restaurant. ‘We had seen a few standard wedding type venues, hotels etc. and nothing felt right. When we found our photographer first (Nicola Thompson) she had done a wedding at the same locations and we loved how it looked. Room Restaurant was always a place we went for cocktails and we hadn’t thought about it for a wedding but as soon as we walked in we knew it was ‘us’, and exactly what we wanted. Together with Manchester Town Hall it was a perfect combination. Both venues are stunning inside which meant that we weren’t dependent on the weather. We had 96 guests and the wedding took 9 months to plan.’
I am delighted to welcome back Andrea Pittam from Kiss the Frog to the blog today. Andrea is a photographer as well as crafter and last time showed us how to make these super cute paper windmills which look great for weddings or children’s parties. Today Andrea is showing us how to make these quick and easy paper hearts. These are fantastic for wedding decorations. They can be hung around your venue on the walls or from the ceiling, or placed on tables. They are also great as wedding favours.
These gorgeous hearts are made from scrapbook paper so the patterns and colour options are endless. The hearts can be hung on their own, or as a garland on a length of ribbon.
Happy Monday everyone, and welcome to another wonderful week! I am now back from my holiday, my birthday has been and gone and I am ready for a busy week ahead, what about you? I had a lovely time on holiday, the right amount of sunshine and sea, mixed with a lot of relaxation and chilling out. Baby Hood had a lovely time and has been kicking loads while we have been away, he certainly enjoyed the rest! Now it’s onwards and upwards and time to start the week with another cracking wedding. This one is Paul and Lizzy’s Wedding Weekender. Their love for the Glastonbury festival brought them to a rustic, DIY festival themed day, filled with lots of homemade details and the most adorable flower crown! Thanks to Claire from Blue Daisy Photography for the photos.
OUR BEST DAY EVER!!!
Elizabeth and Paul were married on the 28th of June at Talton Lodge, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire with a prior legal ceremony at Stratford upon Avon registry office. ‘After lots of research online, we knew that the theme of our wedding would be ‘rustic’ and we wanted our ceremony outside. So I looked into venues in the countryside such as beautiful barns and even enquired into marrying in lavender fields (which, by the way, is a little bit impossible)! Paul & I love Glastonbury festival. We love the vibe there and the feeling of fun and freedom, so we decided to mix a bit of this into our wedding. High up on the list was the opportunity for our guests to camp! This narrowed the search and also bought up venues with festival themes along with the flexibility to create your own unique day. We had decided that we disliked the strict rules that applied to most venues. Then I came across ‘Talton lodge’ and it ticked all the boxes! It boasts two giant hat tipis set in a walled kitchen garden, yurts & huts, as well as on-site camping, with home grown produce for the catering. There was also a large lawn looking out over a small river, where our ceremony would be set. All this and so much more, set in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. The venue was ours for the whole weekend! It was perfect! We had 90 guests and took 2 years of planning’.
