Ooooh, I just love the details of this wedding that are sweet in all senses of the word. The delicacy, the femininity and let's not forget the scrummy sweets themselves - they all combine into a totally glorious confection that makes your mouth water. The lovely Melanie East captured Catherine & Mark's wedding at The Bear of Rodborough and I hope you enjoy it...
Above - I love this image, and not just for the ever-so pretty bow bedecked shoes. I so like the way the focus is on the detail but the whole shoe can be seen in the reflection and the shoe set en pointe makes me think 'ballet'.
Above - this is a great 'stolen moment' shot - in the madness of the morning, Catherine is caught on her own as she puts in her earrings and she looks like she has time for her own thoughts which is very special.
Above - The detailing on the bodice of Catherine's dress is just gorgeous here. And brides-to-be - please note that she has her engagement ring on the 'other' hand so that her wedding ring can be slipped on easily.
Above - a great loose country garden arrangement that would be easy DIY.
Above - delicate petals in gorgeous tones suit this wedding perfectly.
Above - a wonderfully tender shot with Mark helping Catherine down the steps.
Above - how mouth wateringly delicious does this cupcake tower look? The perspex stand means you can see all of the wonderful cakes and the dark cupcake wrappers contrast so sweetly with the lighter toppings.
Above - two of my current favourite things - macarons and glassware. Delicious!
Above - this pile of Turkish Delight dusted in icing sugar sitting on this pale blue cake stand is a wonderful touch and ooooh, note the doily underneath!
Above - this is a gorgeous setting. The chunky pencils are off-set perfectly by the delicate lace wrapped around the glass jar they're sitting in and I love the boxes for the 'make a wish' cards and the box behind for guests to leave their wedding cards in.
Above - this looks so beautiful. And the mirror behind reflects the candles, the flowers and the entire setting perfectly.
