"The Shire Hire You Desire "
I completed my trade qualifications as a pastry chef in 1989 and longed for a more interesting challenge from sausage rolls, pies and small cakes. Coming from a loving family of creative talent I soon found my passionate niche.
An opportunity arose in 1990 that I couldn't let pass. A company specialising in baking and decorating wedding cakes needed a creative, spirited, hard working pastry chef with the ability to formulate and manage new ideas. I stayed with that company for ten years creating stunning designs that proved very popular.
Lazy John finally got around to asking for my hand in marriage (after 8 years) and the foundations of our great union began.
I served an apprenticeship as a jobbing moulder & coremaker in a ferrous foundry from 1988 to 1991. Once successfully completing my trade I continued my studies when I was offered a metallurgy traineeship at Garden Island Dockyard which I completed in '95.
Note: This is why it took me so long to get married. I didn't want the stress of studying complicating married life.
In the course of my studies I took on a few management, business and marketing electives as this interested me. Little did I know these would prove invaluable when we started Cakes Covers & Candlesticks. Having a passion for making things, pulling things apart and putting them back together again to see how things worked helped me in the manufacture of most of our wonderful candelabra and other items.
I enjoy making things I know no one else has, as this makes our products unique and sets us apart from others.
When panning our own wedding, neither of us knew much about getting married or the wedding industry as a whole. We had very little help, and very few choices and had many set backs along the way.
After many frustrated weekends of looking for what we wanted and getting nowhere, we decided if we couldn't get something we would make it or do it ourselves. We took all the set backs and problems we had from our experience and decided we would help brides & grooms in the future get everything they desired in one place where we could help them and give advice if needed.
The rest (as they say) is history.
