With boho wedding style leading the way this summer, we’re taking a look this week at wedding cakes featuring one of our favourite boho design motifs – soft, floating feathers.
For the free-spirited bride, Megan Joy Cake’s delicate feather-strewn boho wedding cake above makes a perfect choice. In fact, fondant feathers are one of the signature design motifs of Megan’s wedding cake collection across a range of wedding cake styles – from botanical, nature-inspired designs, to tribal looks and ethnic beading to glamorous floral wedding cakes.
Victoria Watkin Jones takes the boho feathers theme to the max with an amazing angel wings wedding cake below with gold leaf garland. On the right, Reego Photography capture the essence of the theme “a bohemian day in the woods” in a beautiful styled shoot below (via One Fab Day).
