Be it a multi-tiered wedding cake or something small and simple, we will guide you in designing and achieving the cake of your dreams. All cakes are baked on site in our modern bakery and showroom and we offer a large selection of flavours for you to try.

I search for real emotion. And I look for the light. Every time I press the shutter, I capture a moment in time. Part documentary, part editorial, I like to replicate the mood of the day with dashes of rawness, romance, soft focus and colour.
