3 Tiers of Gold at Hadlow Manor, Tonbridge, Kent

Hadlow Manor is set in the Kent Countryside, between Tunbridge Wells and West Malling.

An elegant 18th century Manor house with lovely gardens and grounds.

The Bride and Groom held their wedding in the Hadlow Room, high ceilings, chandeliers and paned glass windows overlooking the gardens.


Their colour scheme was navy blue, white and gold, with the addition of lace, pearls and some sparkle!

I was asked to design their wedding cake to reflect these colours and after our  wedding cake tasting meeting, I got to the drawing board and started to put their ideas together. Whenever a Bride and Groom ask me to design a wedding cake for them, I always draw a sketch to give them (and myself) an idea of how their ideas can come together.

I designed 2 pictures with different ideas of how their wedding cake could look and emailed them over to the bride, and after discussions with the Bride we made a few alterations.

The final design of their wedding cake had ‘Rose Ruffles’ on the bottom tier, lightly sprayed in gold, the middle tier was wrapped in gold lace, and the top tier was decorated with gold lace and hand made sugar flowers in gold with gold hand painted edges.

A scattering of pearls was placed between each tier.


A beautiful wedding cake design, which completed their wedding colour schemes so well, with gold sashes on their chairs, navy blue lace table runners and pearls scattered across their tables.

Adding ‘Ruffles’ and ‘Lace’ to wedding cake makes a stunning wedding cake and can be in all colours. I have made a similar wedding cake in peach, which can be seen on my website on the ‘Ruffles’ & ‘Lace’ page.
