Gemma Hartshorne, 29, was the lucky Winner of the Cake made by Love Island Cakes in our last competition. On the 27th August 2014, Gemma married Steven, 28, at The Dome Beach Hotel, Ayia Napa.

My dress was ivory strapless fitted to the waist then went out with diamontes all over it. With a tiara and a pearl/diamond necklace

Did you have something old, new, borrowed and blue? If so, what were they?
Old and borrowed was my necklace, blue was a garter and new [was] my dress.

[My] Maid of honour wore a burnt orange strapless dress and my flower girl (who was my 3 yr old daughter) wore an ivory dress with [a] burnt orange sash and burnt orange flowers in the netting.

We were recommended The Dome Beach Hotel by Thomas Cook and I liked the idea of marrying right by the beach. We decorated the venue with orange sashes on the chairs and orange runners on the tables and for our centrepieces we had Ivory bird cages with candles inside and a burnt orange flower

The cake was a 1 tier with burnt orange shells on with 3 tiers of cupcakes


Best part of the day for me was marrying my husband, followed by being taken to many
locations for photo shoots

My Advice: Enjoy the day and don’t stress as it goes far to fast!
