AHi CC members!

Thought you might be interested to see this :)

It was captured at a wedding in Maleny, Australia last Friday, the 8th of November 2013.


Have a great day/evening.

The story that backs up just one of the disasters on this couple's wedding day is priceless! It will truly be a day they will never forget. It was the mistakes and mishaps in my wedding I remember the most...a groomsmen wearing neon orange socks, the aisle runner breaking and having to be cut with a pocket knife and kicked down the aisle, a bird pooping on my dress...thankfully no cake disaster though!

AYou snapped at the perfect moment. Love the way you do the watermark. May have finally convinced me to add them to my photos. So unobtrusive.

And that's why you secure the cake to the stand. Haha

Awesome and memorable photo! Great job capturing it at just the right moment. They sound like a great couple who will be able to laugh at themselves every time they see it. :)

How do you secure a cake to the stand?

I can't see the pic...  I just get a screen full of gobbledegook!

Thank you, MBalaska. 


It's showing now though.  OMG!  How absolutely awful for the couple.


I must confess, it's never occurred to me to secure a small cutting cake to the top of a cupcake tower....  food for thought!

I wasn't able to see the image either, I think because of the trailing / at the end of the url, when I typed it in manually and left that out I got the whole page...


Wonderful shot, and I think they handled it well, although I am pretty sure if it was me and my hubby we would have been doubled over laughing once the initial shock wore off! :D

I LOVE the little boy on the floor off to the left with his tongue out :D  "Oh boy floor cake!!!"  The pictures are beautiful, the cake and cupcakes were beautiful too.

What a fantastic capture of a moment that will live on in the minds of the couple (and their guest's) for the rest of their lives.
