It's been a busy period even though it supposed to be a bit of a rest period for us wedding photographers. It has been a whirlwind. Following Christmas I was preparing for the Wedding Palace Bridal show and following that, an amazing number of great client consultations for wedding and boudoir photography for 2011. Then I was off to shoot a luxury destination wedding in Dominican Republic at Dreams Palm Beach. I have a number of weddings still to blog from 2011, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, while I was at the Wedding Palace Bridal show I almost fell over when I met Sophie Bifield. Her cake design was something I have only seen in luxury wedding magazines and was thrilled to know that she was opening up here in Ottawa!
So recently I have had the oppourtunity to work with Sophie to photograph her most recent designs for Sophie Bifield Cake Company and get to know her a little better. If you are looking for a unique wedding cake for your wedding and want to abandon the traditional stacked cake with ribbons and flowers...these will take yours and your guests breath away!
More about Sophie:
Why you started in creating beautiful cakes?
I started making cakes shortly after I got engaged. Living in Toronto at the time, my eyes were opened to the endless possibilities of the edible arts. I didn't realise that cakes could be so artistic until I started searching for my own wedding cake. Having always been a perfectionist when it comes to details, I struggled to find what I was looking for in Ottawa where we are getting married. I took an intensive cake design course and fell in love with cake - all of my artistic talents which I had sidelined for so long were finally being put to use - and that's how the Sophie Bifield Cake Company was born.
