The style and grace of the Edwardian period has become one of the biggest inspiration sources for brides this year with vintage inspired weddings taking on a stronger period influence.

The Abigail Bloom Cake Company have captured the essence of the turn-of-the-century style in their stately and elegant, period-style wedding cake above, using delicate lace effects and classical piping.

Strings of chandelier beads are the inspiration behind the stylish decor of the Edwardian inspired wedding cake below by New York’s, Ana Parzych Cakes.
