Once again arriving to a beautiful wedding styled display, Wishes Events never ceases to amaze. Having set up 2 unique ceremonies, one indoor and the other outdoor as well as two reception areas they had demonstrated a great diversity of wedding styles. I must say it is always a pleasure getting to work alongside these guys.
Not long after setting up, showcasing some of our most recent & favourite films from the past year we had some tears flowing, & to me this shows the emotion we here at Jadore capture in our wedding films, which for the team is the main goal. I recall one of the guests saying “ I don't even know these people and I fell like I am there!.” with a few tears shed they began to smile at the happiness the couple displayed on the screen had shown them.
Also playing our most popular clip of the grooms dance for his bride accompanied by his groomsman this definitely caught the attention of a fair few guests. Each time I watch this video I remember the exact feeling I felt being apart of something so exciting & unique. Overflows me with joy each & every time! & to see the enjoyment so many others get out of it truly does make my job that much more rewarding.

Perfect Wedding Cake: There Is Always a Choice!
An important part of any wedding ceremony, either in Brisbane, Paris or Los Angeles, is a beautiful wedding cake. It is a symbol of prosperity that came to us from ancient times when bride and groom had to share a piece of their fortune and happiness with every welcomed guest.
But is it that easy to choose the right one, and not to get lost between latest trends, mom’s suggestions, and own desires? Let’s take a look at the most common dilemma that you may face while making you choice.
Traditional or Alternative Wedding Cake
Tradition is something that really matters, especially if you are planning to have a classical style wedding. In this case, we imagine a multiple layers white cake, covered with cream and frosting, and ornamented with the marzipan figures of newlyweds on top. It tastes sweet, like strawberry vanilla and chocolate, and is decorated with jewels, shells, and flowers. The traditional cake will always be in fashion as a part of long lasting wedding custom.
Although, there is an alternative. Depending on your wedding theme or how extraordinary you want to look, you can use a range of nontraditional cake ideas. Maybe you want to offer your guests a plate with wedding pancakes or a meringue cake? More popularity is being gained by old-fashioned fruit pies, creative colorful doughnuts, and even cake pops. By the way, have you ever tried a cake on a stick?
Wedding Cake or Cupcakes
If the ritual of cutting the cake, feeding your beloved one with the best piece, and saving the top tier for your first anniversary means a lot to you, your choice is definitely not cupcakes. Especially, if your family and guests are of a conservative kind and all of them are waiting for the “real” cake from the very beginning of the party.
But in case you are a risky one, you can save a little money and order wedding cupcakes. And here you can have as many tastes and designs as you want. Guests also can pick their favorite flavors and eat them even before the official cake-time. And you don’t have to worry about offending your dear aunt by giving her too small piece of the cake – all cupcakes are the same size, isn’t it perfects? Just keep in mind that your cupcake display has to be really good, as it substitutes a very important part of the wedding tradition – the wedding cake…
Fondant or Buttercream
What is more important in the wedding cake, its taste or design? Most of the brides will definitely choose a design as an illustration of the couple’s distinctness. This is why flawless porcelain look created with fondant icing is so highly appreciated by most newlyweds. Fondant makes the design options nearly endless. Moreover, your cake will withstand strong heat or windy weather of the outdoor events, and preserve the moist of the dough keeping it fresh for hours.
Hence, not everyone likes the taste of the fondant. Some people prefer soft and tender buttercream frosting, never-ending classic. Made from butter, sugar, and cream, it can take a flavor of your favorite chocolate or citrus zest. Buttercream is also good for a decoration; although it is not that sophisticated as fondant, but it is definitely less expensive and easily affordable.
On the other hand, why to choose between two, if you can combine both? Buttercream can be used for a taste and fondant serves perfectly for the decoration on top!
Which of these cakes will you choose for your Gold Coast Wedding? To tell you a secret, any choice will be the right one, as wedding cake is meant to reflect your own tastes and personal style, as well as symbolize long years of prosperity in the newborn family. Just remember to hire your personal Gold Coast wedding photographer to depict every moment of your happy celebration of love!
