Radiant Orchid
Inspired by the popular trend of ombre, this 6-tiered cake created by The Cake & The Giraffe reflects vibrant shades of radiant orchid from dark to light. The intricate design captures the opulence of mehndi in gold with glittering highlights of radiant orchid, tangerine and teal adding that extra touch of sparkle. For couple’s with differing tastes, this cake features chocolate salted caramel and lemon cake, lemon curd and raspberry compote to satisfy a rich and decadent or tart and citrus palate.
Dare to be different. For those brides and grooms looking for a modern take on the traditional bouquet and boutonnière, Vivio Flower Gallery has created just that. Inspired by radiant orchid, the bouquet features cascading phalaenopsis orchids from a local grower, accented with brilliant gold accessories adding that touch of glamour. The boutonnière will add a gorgeous touch of colour to the groom’s outfit, and features a single phalaenopsis orchid with gold accessories and a jewelled centre for the perfect amount of bling.

Fit for a king and queen, this 6-tiered cake created by Kien & Sweet evokes a sense of nobility and luxury, while incorporating sangria as the dominant colour, offset by white tiers and majestic gold accents. The regal design showcases vintage details from baroque architecture, and the added ribbon details add a touch of romance, perfect for a wedding! This cake is made of vanilla bean with white chocolate ganache, and alternating layers of chai and coconut butter cream.
Inspired by sangria, a rich, opulent bouquet, boutonnière and garland was created by The Flower Factory, to not only match the regalness of the cake, but to offer a stunning, comprehensive look for the royal couple. The exquisite bouquet features greenery gold leafed with flowers such as ocean song roses, cymbidum orchids, burgundy ranunculus, purple lisianthus and touches of lily of the valley. The bold, but beautiful boutonnière is comprised of a single cymbidium orchid. And the garland was created from cymbidum orchids, gold guilded greens and moon series purple carnations.

Cayenne & Celosia Orange
Evoking romance with a touch of glam, this 4-tiered cake designed by Anna Elizabeth Cakes showcases peonies, roses and ranunculus, all crafted out of sugar in different shades of cayenne and highlighted with edible 24k gold gilded sugar leaves and berries. The short golden tier is also gilded in 24k gold, giving a feeling of opulence that works perfectly with the blush and cream tiers. This cake is a light vanilla with fresh strawberry buttercream and white chocolate champagne ganache.  
Showcasing the rich tones of cayenne and celosia orange, Queensbury Flower Company created a modern, posh bouquet reminiscent of an urban chic hotel wedding. The bouquet boasts roses, cymbidium orchids, anemones and alstroemeria, along with spectacular jewellery adding that touch of glamour and dazzle for the big day! Instead of using greenery to collar the bouquet, a mix of gold satin and sheer champagne ribbon was incorporated to create a feeling of luxury. Brides can customize this bouquet with their own pieces of sentimental jewellery.
