Twila & Leolin’s Real Wedding

After meeting 12 years ago in New Zealand, Twila and Leolin discovered they had a connection that couldn’t be dampened by distance or time. They experienced lots of the world together and apart before settling in England, where they got married in a rockabilly inspired wedding with lots of handmade details. 


Vintage Wedding Cake

Bride Twila loves to bake, so she felt it was only natural she should make her own wedding cake. It had three tiers with three different flavours – from bottom to top: chocolate truffle cake with chocolate ganache, almond and amaretto cake and a fruit cake.


The bride’s mother iced it, and Twila finished it off with black polka dot ribbons, a sugar flower and by spraying it with a pearl lustre, for a gorgeous vintage look. Twila went baking crazy and created a whole cake table, as well as baking a cake for the centerpieces on each of her wedding tables!

After their amazing wedding, Twila and Leolin waited until January to go on honeymoon, to eke out the happy time a bit longer! They chose to go to the Maldives as it’s one place they haven’t been together, where they could relax and dive in the clear blue sea.
