Baking Prettiness and a Winter Wedding

Hi lovely Maddabling blog readers, what an exceptional weekend it was in the Maddabling household. There is no recipe to share and there was no bushwalking done - instead I witnessed my gorgeous step-daughter Jade marry the love of her life, Stephen. It was a beautiful ceremony and the rain even held off for outdoor photos. I swear, I didn't get teary until I started editing the photos taken and then poor hubby was on standby with a box of tissues! I share with you now Baking Prettiness and a Winter Wedding.

So there was something blue............
a candid snap from hubby of me checking that my camera is ready to go...
and here are the sweet treats I baked - chocolate cupcakes, pumpkin scones, lady grey tea infused cupcakes, orange + poppy seed heart shaped butter cookies and lime + coconut heart shaped butter cookies. Yum!
I also want to share the beautiful custom knife serving set made with fine handcrafted Italian Glass Beads from Naomi at Nazzy Beads not to mention the delicious White Chocolate Ganache covered Vanilla Butter Cake with Cherry Ripe inspired Filling from the clever Janine at Albany Cake Designs. 
Then there was the beautiful bride - and that dress! Wow! 
the exchanging of rings........................ 
and the cutting of the cake. 
It really was the most beautiful day, despite the somewhat wintery weather, and we wish Stephen and Jade every happiness for the new life adventure they have chosen to embark on together as husband and wife. 

We love you to bits guys xox
