Passionate about art, beauty, and craftsmanship, I launched Meadowsweet Cakes: a luxury brand bringing an additional element of refinement to UK weddings.

My fascination with art and fashion started at a young age, when I had professional training at my aunt's bridal gown studio. My obsession with wedding fashion combined with my love of baking resulted in a strong desire to create a style-led brand, crafting cakes that look -and taste- extraordinary. In a very short time, I managed to build an excellent reputation within the wedding industry, winning Best Cake Designer in the Four Counties Wedding Awards 2017, Highly Commended Cake Designer in 2018, in addition to attaining several awards at Cake International over the years, and being a preferred supplier at some of the UK's top wedding venues. My work has been featured in numerous publications around the world, and for an emerging artist, I couldn't be happier with how my brand is perceived.

Meadowsweet Cakes, the brand: I put a lot of thought into naming our company. “Meadowsweet” is a wild herb that has a subtle sweet vanilla flavour - and what can be a better name than something natural, sweet and subtle? I care deeply about sourcing the most natural ingredients I can get, and use free range/organic ingredients where possible. It's one of the things that we feel very strongly about.

Our Philosophy: Is to provide high quality products, paying attention to the smallest of details, even if it means spending many extra hours working on a single cake, I know it's worth it in the end. I pride myself for always giving my customers more than they expect, and I get incredible feedback as a reward.

Our Location: Our studio is based in Hertfordshire, UK: less than an hour’s drive from London and half an hour's drive from Cambridge. 

I would love to hear from you and be part of celebrating your special occasion!
