Very Vanilla

I launched Very Vanilla with a passion for creating considered, design-led cakes and intricate patisserie-filled dessert tables, for couples who would like something a little different to the traditional wedding cake – creating designs that are inspired by their sense of style, taste and their own amazing wedding vision.

I specialise in working with buttercream and ganache and am truly excited by the different textures, flavours, colours and styles you can create using these cake-decorating mediums. I also love to explore the use of different height tiers and multiple wedding cake displays to add extra detail and interest. Ultimately, I love working with my couples to create designs that will highlight the care and creativity that they have put into their wedding day.

I love using fresh flowers and foliage for a more natural feel, and with my pastry background often blend patisserie elements, such as macarons and tempered chocolate, with modern cake decorating techniques for a balanced, detail-driven and delicious aesthetic.

If I were to describe my style, I would say that it is pared-back, understated elegance, with a contemporary twist.

The wedding cake journey is so special and I love creating a warm, generous space to collaborate on your design, ensuring every aspect of planning your wedding cake is effortless and enjoyable – with lots of cake along the way!

I'm based in the Cotswolds and well-placed to work across Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Warwickshire, some parts of Buckinghamshire and Herefordshire. As much as feasibly possible, I work with local, passionate suppliers to source my ingredients. Where I am not able to buy locally, I'll choose organic ingredients that not only have a better taste but also have a lesser impact on the environment.

It's a pleasure to be considered for your wedding day! Thank you so much for finding out more about me.

There's so much inspiration out there, thanks to the amazing social media platforms we have available, but I appreciate this can get overwhelming! Spend some time together thinking about the overall style you'd like to create for your wedding day - taking inspiration from your venue and how you want the day to feel for you and your guests - and start building ideas from there. And also, don't be worried if your ideas change along the way - it's all part of the process! Embrace it as it'll help you move towards your overall wedding vision.
"Thank you, thank you, THANK You for being a part of our special day...Your cakes were simply delicious and I'm so glad that we got to EAT DESSERT FIRST!...We cannot thank you enough and will dream about Very Vanilla every 4th June for the rest of time." E&M, June 2022
