GC Couture launches 2016 Seasons of Sugar Collection at The Lanesborough London.
GC Couture is proud to announce the launch of our highly anticipated 2016 ‘Seasons of Sugar Collection’.
Having recently celebrated our 10-year anniversary, we believe we have truly developed something special, that we are very proud of. The collection will be available for couples to view and order from the 1st November but this week we invited an exclusive group of wedding press and planners to share in a proud moment for our team.
Marie Sinclair, our Creative Director has spent months creating couture cakes to represent the most breath-taking elements of each of the four seasons, creating stand out centrepieces for spring, summer, autumn and winter weddings.
Our new collection ties in traditional, classic beauty with stunning height and cascading sugar flowers, which we think makes them magnificent centrepieces for seasonal weddings. While our cake designs aim to be timeless, we are also proud to be leading the way in setting trends for the coming year.
We have worked with Melanie from Cranberry Blue Weddings and Events who has managed the planning process from concept to implementation along with a whole team of incredible suppliers culminating in the launch event last Tuesday. As guests arrived at the exclusive Lanesborough London, they were offered delicious cocktails, before being led with grandeur by violinists from Sternberg Clarke into the Belgravia Room, which had been set for the Seasons of Sugar, launch. Thanks to beautiful lighting by Light Motif with glowing candles and romantic lighting, stunningly colourful flower arrangements by Wild About Flowers and twinkling LED trees from Twinkling Trees, the new Seasons of Sugar collection was really shown off in all its splendour. Fresh and beautiful scents filled the air by Design In Scent, whilst the grand chairs and furniture were supplied by Great Hire.
As guests mingled they were offered cocktails from each season with mouth-wateringly sweet bites to enjoy. Exclamations of enjoyment mixed with the sound of seagulls, waves and the live classical violins added a great sense of occasion to the atmosphere.
Guests were treated to an afternoon etiquette lesson by Nadia Rae. Milk last, jam first, scones are broken not cut and phones are never near the table! With glasses full of Tattinger, guests were able to enjoy the beautiful sweet delights offered by the Lanesborough, before being given thank you bags full of gifts including a candle from Amara, perfume from Design In Scent, correspondence cards by Lovicci, a plant from Wild About Flowers and an abundance of sweet treats from GC Couture.
We’d like to thank everyone who was involved with the event including John Nassari who captured the event so beautifully on camera for film and photographs; to the Lanesborough London for hosting us; to Lovicci for designing our Save The Dates and formal invitations, and to Rupa Photography for filming our behind-the-scenes – the making of our new collection which will be released shortly.
While the cakes will be available in any of GC Couture’s 50-plus tantalising flavours, the production team has paired up perfect flavour recommendations for each season. For wintery creations, GC Couture favourite, Fruitcake Without the Bits; for the essence of autumn, Cinnamon; spring cakes are best served with a hint of Pear and Summer Fruits make the perfect flavour for the collection’s summer cakes.
GC Couture caters to a variety of dietary requirements, including gluten-free, dairy-free, eggless, vegan, fair trade, vegetarian, low sugar and sugar free, without compromising the fantastic taste and texture of the cakes. More than fifty unique flavours are available.
While GC Couture has a wide selection of cakes to choose from, including the current and previous collections, a bespoke service is also available for couples looking to work with the team to create their dream wedding cake.
