Peggy Porschen on bridal trends for 2013

Hallo everyone!
 
I hope you all had a great weekend. I’m absolutely delighted to start the week with a fabulous post by Peggy Porschen on bridal trends for 2013.
 
Now almost ten years old, Peggy’s incredibly successful business needs no introduction. She is renowned for her extremely elegant (and delicious) cakes, cupcakes and cookies. Originally making bespoke cakes only, Peggy opened the award-winning Peggy Porschen Parlour in Belgravia in the autumn of 2010. Her Academy followed soon after, offering a chance to learn baking, cake decorating and sugar craft skills at a whole range of different levels. Peggy is also the author of a number of books on cakes and cookies, including her latest, Boutique Baking, which has only just been launched.
 
Over to Peggy for what to expect in 2013:
 
 
There is certainly a trends towards the traditional tiered cake,
brides are opting for elegant and understated designs
which display detailed craftsmanship and skill.
 
 
 
Pearls and Bows
 
 
 
Flowers of course remain very popular

Lily of the Valley
 
 
 
I find a lot of brides as for a bouquet of different blooms as opposed to one flower and one colour
 
 
Spring Flower Garden
 
 
 
Paper White
 
 
 
After the Kate Moss wedding ad with the new film duo out,
I predict a huge surge towards Great Gatsby-esque twenties designs,
with pearls and swags and tiers with varying heights.

A heartfelt thank you to Peggy and her wonderful team for contributing such an inspirational post. I, for one, am really looking forward to my next trip to London so I can visit the beautiful Parlour!
