At the beginning of 2017 I had an enquiry from a fantastic couple who were getting married at Barmbyfield Barns later that year.

When they had their meeting with me, they explained that the wedding was focusing around a cake they’d booked…by the Tattooed Bakers. With that name drop, I was practically begging them to work their day. I have been a super fan of their outstanding talent for so long, I couldn’t believe I might actually get a chance to meet them and see one of their creations up close and personal.

Luckily for me, I was booked and I did indeed get to meet the bakers and wow at the cake, which had been modeled on the couple but turned into skulls. It was a very near Halloween after all so rather apt!

That wasn’t the only cool thing though – far from it. The bride wore an awesome dip dye dress and an ultra cool custom leather jacket. She had a man of honour to walk down the aisle with her, the groom wore crazy but amazing custom shoes and there were so many personalised DIY touches that made the styling stand out from the usual barn style weddings I am part of.

The couple lucked out with their food too with Streetcleaver supplying the daytime food and the bride’s family putting on a mountain of evening food that had been thoughtfully (and very yummy) made.

With big thanks to Dan from Gingersnaps for being a pleasure to work alongside and for allowing me to use these photos.
