Luxury Castle Wedding

Louise & Robert Henderson

Wedding: 17th October 2019

Cabra Castle, Cavan, Ireland

Louise contacted me back in January 2018 when she and Robert had confirmed their wedding date for October 2019 at Cabra Castle. Though Louise did mention to me early on that "I was always going to use you even before I was engaged". She had fallen in love with a beautiful tiered wedding cake design I had previously created and knew that it would sit perfectly in the Grand Ballroom.

After their consultation Louise and Robert were so impressed with their new design and how special they felt. "We were very impressed by the whole thing. Not to mention, how fabulous your cakes taste, so yummy! We had our tasters with some bubbles and they were so good!" We changed up the layout from the original design they had seen, added in more intricate detailing inspired by Louise's stunning dress, incorporated the monogram from their wedding stationary and LOTS of fresh florals.

Towering designs like Louise and Robert's always require assembly at the venue. After using my trusty little step ladder to stack the cake I add on the final few piped elements and the detailing to the back of the cake. (Sorry I've no pictures of me setting up this beauty I had to deliver on my own that day, but if you want to see me on my ladder take a look at behind the scenes of Amy & Ross's wedding cake.) I waited patiently for Gerard's Flowers to arrive with the most stunning selection of fresh florals to dress the fully stacked cake with. Once finished, I sat with my sketch pad and colouring pencils to capture their completed cake forever, signed and framed for them to keep...their videographer, Wheatfield Films, caught me mid sketch.

Louise and Robert's wedding was stunning from start to finish, as you can see from the amazing photos from Bradley Henderson Photography. It really felt something you'd see gracing the pages of a luxury wedding magazine.

"Emma is such a professional at her job, the whole process from first enquiry, to the consultation, right through to delivery and set up was so seamless.

For me personally, the cake is a major part of the wedding day, and when we first saw the cake in reality we were blown away! It was everything we'd wanted and more!

There’s nothing to worry about with regards to your cake when it’s in Emma’s very talented hands. She’s extremely approachable, efficient and a dream to work with.

We were so impressed with the sample box we received, as well as, the gift of the wedding cake sketch given to us on our wedding day. It’s all the above and those little special things that truly make Emma Stewart Cake Design the best wedding cake designer in our eyes.

If you are searching for your wedding cake designer absolutely get in touch with Emma, we give her our highest recommendation, without reservation."
