Today the lovely Alice from wedding styling company Fleur De Lace treats us to a guest post all about being brave and adding colour to your big day.  Some people like to play safe on their wedding day, but we are all about colour here at Mr & Mrs Unique… Over to Alice…


Here at Fleur de Lace we are always looking for rising trends that flourish through from the catwalk, to our daily lives and into our wedding décor.  If it’s a simple colour pop you want or maybe you want to bedazzle your guests with the Brightness of Summer, this could be right up your street.

Today we have a lovely guest post from Natasha from Nevie-Pie Cakes. Now I’m not ashamed to admit it, but Im a huge fan of Nevie-Pie. She has taken part in many of our Mr & Mrs Unique photo shoots because she always delivers with originality, creativity and just bloody great skill! She loves a good project and in the end creates these stonking cakes that deliver on wow factor and taste.

Natasha dropped me an email regarding her most recent cake and Im only too happy to share it with you.. So handing over to Natasha…

I spend a lot of my time looking a beautiful pictures on Pinterest, and one of the pins that I come back to time and time again is a wall covered in gorgeous layers of peeling vintage wallpaper. This was my inspiration for my cake.

I really wanted to create something unusual and a little different to my normal style. This is a design that could easily be changed to include different flowers and design elements. I am definitely going to be experimenting with the wallpaper look as I love the effect it gives.
