The Dorset Wedding Supplier Awards 2014 – I WON!

Written by Jennifer Poynter of Jennifer Poynter Flowers wisebride.co.uk/wedding-directory/388/jennifer-poynter-flowers So, it’s almost exactly one year since I hung up my florist-shop scissors decided to ‘go it alone’. It’s been an amazingly tiring but fulfilling year, and last November brought the perfect cherry on the (wedding) cake… I was delighted to be named ‘Best Wedding Florist’ at The Dorset Wedding Supplier Awards 2014! I was completely shocked as the other two finalists are ladies I have a lot of respect for professionally and I don’t know how the judges chose between us! It was really an honour to receive this award in my first year of business. Here’s me with lovely Caroline of Amazing Face, who won the ‘Best Wedding Make-up’ category… so very well deserved (if you need wedding make-up, this lady is truly amazing- clue’s in the name!) Big thanks and shout-outs to Caroline, Elke, Joe, Michael, Katie, Andy, Howard and Julie (great cheering guys!), my lovely Mr Poynter (great everything!), the judges (THANK YOU!), organisers Sam and Eleanor (for organisation and splendid shoes) and of course all the amazing couples who booked me to create flowers for their weddings this year- it’s been a blast, and I’m very pleased with the new addition to our household furnishings. Woooohooooo!...

Wedding Cake Traditions

WHEN A WEDDING CAKE WAS MORE THAN JUST A CAKE Written by Sadie Smith – www.cakebysadiesmith.co.uk wisebride.co.uk/wedding-directory/89/cake-by-sadie-smith A wedding cake plays such an important part of a couple’s wedding day and in modern times is often the centre piece of a venue but this wasn’t always the case, A wedding cake in years gone by had a meaning, a tradition or superstition.   Back in the 17th century it was traditional to have two wedding cakes one each for both the Bride and Groom, the cakes were stacked on top of each other similar to a modern day two tiered cake, the Bride’s cake was larger and white to symbolise her virginity whilst the groom’s cake was smaller and darker in colour, eventually this cake transformed into the more modern day tiered wedding cake and the idea of a groom’s cake died out.   It was quite common for a wedding cake not to be eaten but to be thrown at the Bride, It was thought this was done to wish good fertility to her.  Fertility features very heavily in many Wedding Cake traditions and has evolved today into cutting the first slice of cake together and feeding each other a piece, this is a symbol of the support the couple will give each other during their marriage. Wedding cakes were often used as a status symbol, the more tiers and the higher the cake reflected your social standing within your community, Queen Victoria had a very elaborate wedding cake using a white icing which then became known as Royal Icing, the popularity of Royal Iced cakes has lessened...
