Wedding Cake Smash

The Idea

I kinda blame you lot for this one. A lot of my couples during 2022 made the same joke about how they should start a food fight when they were politely cutting their wedding cakes.

You should know better than to make jokes like that near me!

What if, I organised a styled shoot where a real couple, in real wedding attire, got to have a food fight with a real wedding cake?

No, no suppliers would want to join me in this madness…turns out, they would!

The Couple

I have some very cool friends.

When I asked Sam & Molly if they fancied throwing a wedding cake at each they JUMPED at the chance!

Looking Glamorous!

We put together a team of wedding suppliers to become our glam squad.

Amazing Face Dorset worked together to spoil Molly, and make her feel fabulous.

Becca, from To Be Adorned, created a beautiful bespoke pompom crown that matched perfectly with the fun and mischief of the shoot.

Now this last one might surprise you. Molly’s dress, and Sam’s suit were both from Vinted, costing less than £80 for the pair!!! If you’re thinking of something this messy for your wedding day, it’s well worth checking places like Vinted for some bargains.

The Venue

But who would let me throw cake around their beautiful wedding venue?

I think the team at Kingston Country Courtyard know me well enough now, that when I say “I’ve had an idea!” they already know it’s going to be something random. Luckily, they also love trying something new.

I promised I would help clean up the mess, and I even brought biscuits from Biscuits By Sarah B as a thank you gift for their housekeeping team.

The Cake

“I’m thinking of taking a plain white cake and then the wedding couple pouring coloured runny icing over it, then smashing it!” Angela, from Mon Bel Amour Cake Craft, sent me this email.


I have never seen a couple decorate their wedding cake at their wedding, but how cool would that be?! It had to be done.

Let The Food Fight Begin!

This may be one of the messiest photoshoots I have ever done.

But to all my wonderful couples who have joked about throwing wedding cake at each other on their big day, this one is for you xxx
