Team your semi-naked cake with fresh fruit for an even more rustic feel
This styled shoot is all about taking a simple idea and running with it. Stylist Nikki Sherriff started with a vision for a “cosy autumn feel” – and from that, this gorgeous look was born. The carefully selected colour palette of deep plums, blood oranges and juicy reds creates a warm and inviting ambience, and the abundance of fruits alludes to harvest time and the beauty of nature. The outdoor setting works in harmony with the natural elements, but this reception style would still look amazing in a barn or manor house if you didn’t want to chance the British weather.
