Introducing Pamella Dunn Brand Ambassador Jo From White Rose Cake Design

By now I’m sure you believe me when I say I’m beyond lucky to be surrounded by the most gorgeous, passionate, motivated and innovative wedding industry professionals of the future. Today is Sunday and I have a banger of a Sunday session to share with you. If you’ve missed day one to five you must play catch up, and not forgetting that the introduction features run for another 10 fabulous days.

Jo attended the My Wedding Business Introductory Course but this wasn’t the first time we’d met. Having set her business up 6 years ago she had exhibited at one of the wedding shows I had also attended a few years ago. Now established and looking to take her business to the next level Jo enrolled on the course and has gone from strength to strength. Her cakes are polished, scrumptious and she’s the loveliest person you could wish to meet. Here she shares some insider information …..

Day Six:

Whether it was crafting models from modelling clay or drawing and sketching, I’ve always loved to be creative, even from an early age. Before I was a full time wedding cake maker and launched White Rose Cake Design, I had a “real” job as a personal assistant, however I had always wanted to do something more crafty. After my wedding in 2009 I decided to get myself a hobby, as planning my wedding had been my hobby but I couldn’t do that any more!  I enrolled on a sugar flowers course at Huddersfield Technical College (as it was then) and fell in love! I took voluntary redundancy in 2011 and have been making wedding and celebration cakes full time since then.

I’ve gradually honed my skills and now create stunning wedding cakes and sugar flowers for discerning brides and get to deliver to all kinds of stunning venues across West and South Yorkshire. I was thrilled to be a Finalist in the 2016 I Do Awards.

All my cakes are baked from scratch, fresh to order, and I use quality local ingredients where possible. The cakes are covered with a layer of chocolate ganache, adding a touch of luxury, and then iced with a crisp clean layer of sugarpaste icing. Each of my cakes are at least 4” tall, adding a touch of elegance to the finished cake. Whether it’s intricate piped lace, delicate sugar flowers or other bespoke decoration, my wedding cakes are crafted with love, care and attention right from the initial consultation to the finished product, which will (hopefully) taste as good as it looks!

I offer free consultations, where you can call for a cuppa, have some cake and a chat. I also offer free local delivery. I prefer to deliver the cakes myself, so I can ensure they’re set up correctly and look their best for my happy couples.

My wedding cakes are surprisingly affordable, starting from £350 for a three tier cake serving approximately 70 guests.

Introducing Pamella Dunn Brand Ambassador Paula From Tint & Type

Following a fabulous trip to London with yesterday’s feature ambassador, Louise from And So To Wed I urge you to get tickets for the final day of A Most Curious Wedding Show tomorrow at The Old Trueman Brewery in Shoreditch. The show is one of a kind and filled with wedding inspiration to make you think all together differently about wedding design and just what is achievable. Which brings me nicely on to today’s superstar.

Paula attended the My Wedding Business Introductory Course last year and had us all fascinated by her and business parter husband James’s design business Tint & Type which brings your wedding design to life, we all loved it. I’ll let Paula talk you through some of background and what you can expect.

Day Five:

Myself and my husband James co-founded ‘Tint & Type’ in 2016 when we decided to take control of our own destiny, we committed ourselves to utilising our strengths and put all our energy into building our own business.

We work together to create visualisations, or CGIs as they are more commonly known. They are digital artistic impressions that give an idea of how something will look when complete. This can be useful, for example to an interior designer to see how their design choices will work together, or for an event planner who wants to show their client a number of table arrangements of a space.

3D imagery,CGI,design planning,
Inspiration brought to life through 3D imagery

James started working in CGI after he finished his degree and focuses on the more technical side of 3D modelling and rendering. Whereas I (Paula) have always worked and been interested in arts and graphic design which I utilise in the final stages giving raw 3D images that extra polish and life. We work with event and wedding planners, interiors designers, property developers and architects.

We particularly enjoy creating images for beautifully decorated interiors and glamorous event spaces which is where the idea of working with Wedding Planners came from. Pamella’s My Wedding Business course has reinforced our belief in taking this direction and we hope 2017 will be year of expanding in this direction. Recently we saw our images being featured in County Weddings and Wedding Ideas Magazines as well as for Manchester Hall, an amazing wedding venue which we’ve been proud to produce images for our brilliant client Cue Marketing

We aim to give everyone we work with a truly bespoke experience and we have enjoyed hearing some of the great feedback our clients have given so far.

Introducing Pamella Dunn Brand Ambassador Victoria of Hummingbird Occasions

On Tuesday and Wednesday we featured two amazing new wedding businesses and PD ambassadors. If you missed them don’t worry you can catch up after you’ve met the simply gorgeous Vicki of Hummingbird Occasions a beautiful wedding planning and styling company based in the south west of the UK.

Day Three:

Meet the gorgeous Vicki

My desire to become a wedding and events planner really became clear when I often felt elements where missing from corporate events and parties. I found myself brainstorming what I would have done differently to take the event to the next level. As a mum of two, I found the same thing at children’s birthday parties. They seemed so commercial rather than styled with a clear theme in mind. Isn’t that what makes children’s parties so fun?!

I took my passion for events and enrolled to study with the UK Academy Of Wedding And Event Planning. Then in 2016, I decided to put all my knowledge, passion and skills to use and am incredibly proud to have launched Hummingbird Occasions.

Introducing Pamella Dunn Events Brand Ambassador Charlotte Of Redemancy

Over the next two weeks I have the pleasure of introducing you to some wedding industry super stars of the future that I have the pleasure of mentoring, working with and supporting. Sharing my experience with them, offering advice and networking opportunities is ridiculously exciting. I am constantly motivated by their passion and enthusiasm for the business, and I’m delighted that you get to hear from them. The first in the series is Charlotte; and yes she made me blush ….

Day One Meet Charlotte:

Charlotte – Wedding Planner & Stylist

My journey started when I was 16 years old, descending the stairs into the dining room at the most beautifully organised and styled wedding reception. To say I was in awe is an understatement. Looking around the room, I was absorbing every last detail – and then I saw her… the Wedding Planner. In that very moment, I wanted to be her. I wanted to do what she did. And since that very moment my focus has never wavered. Not for a single second.

Even whilst studying for my Law Degree I still sat in the library pouring over wedding blogs and Pinterest the majority of the time, planning my wedding-world domination.

I was lucky enough (still pinching myself) to become one of Pamella Dunn’s interns and brand ambassadors just over a year ago. I have picked her brains at every opportunity, and she has generously and willingly shared what she’s learnt. I’ve accompanied her on photoshoots as a styling assistant, helped her set-up for weddings, and made some awesome connections through her. She’s taught me a lot of valuable lessons, steered me in the right direction, and has always been there with positivity in abundance.

Now, after seven years of hustle, I feel like I have finally arrived. I have my own wedding planning and styling business – Redamancy, my own clients who are a joy to work with, a portfolio of styled shoots my sixteen-year-old self would have rushed to ‘pin’, and a blog that is currently in the final of the UK Blog Awards. None of this is a fluke or luck, it’s the result of sheer hard work, the refusal to give up on my dream, and the impact of the most glamorous mentor the world has ever seen. And I’m only just getting started…
