love shoot #12: cupcakes & cookies {inspiration shoot}

We all love a sweet treat, right?  Well, today I have not one, but two delightfully sugary and sweet dessert table ideas to share with you.  I stumbled across this shoot on the talented Anneli Marinovich‘s blog a few weeks ago, and quickly discovered the creative mind behind the styling, Grace of Lilybox Design.  Specialising in Event Design and Dessert Table styling, Grace will work with you to turn your ideas into reality, leaving you & your guests with a lasting impression of your special day.  I love her work!

I have yet to meet a person who likes traditional wedding cake, I mean the cake, the marzipan and the icing.  They always leave something!  So, many couples are opting for alternative wedding cakes with cupcakes being a current favourite.  But there are so many new and exciting ideas to discover like cake pops and macaroons!

What better way to show off your wedding cake, than style a whole table around it?  It’s a sure fire way to make sure there’s something for everyone and give your cake centre stage!

This is simple and effortlessly stylish!  The neutral palette and white cake stands with the pop of turquoise give this table a sense of elegance with a dash of fun! I love the little gift bags, perfect for your guests to take home a tasty little memory of your day!  How cool is the Oreo wedding cake?  Of course, you can’t serve Oreos without these cute little glasses of milk!

{cupcakes & peonies}

This one’s got a real cutesy and girly look!  I love the vibrant shots of fushia pink, and the peonies give a touch of softness.  This would be such a great look for a hen-party tea, or even a baby shower (if you know it’s a girl, of course!)  How delicious and gooey does that pink icing with the sprinkles look?

I hope this has given you some ‘food for thought’!  Are you considering a styled dessert table at your wedding?


After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.


Now, I wouldn’t exactly say that I was camera shy. One of my best friends is super s
