While bohemian and woodland inspired weddings may be amongst the most popular themes for this summer’s weddings, elegant formal weddings never go out of fashion.

Floral and formal wedding cakes are our style crush this week starting with the towering 10-tier statement wedding cake (above left) by Langs of London. Petal-shaped base tiers give an unmistakable air of old world elegance to a wedding cake design with Peggy Porschen and Faye Cahill leading the way in the revival of the petal shaped wedding cake.

Above right, Peggy Porschen’s fabulously romantic design is the epitomy of formal wedding cake elegance.
