Today I’m bringing you the shoot of a truly fabulous business coach and cake maker who I had the pleasure of working with. She not only creates the most beautiful wedding cakes, but she also coaches other cake makers to build a successful business, has published several books to help those cake makers and has a subscription box – oh, and on top of all that she is an extremely talented opera singer (which of course we bought into her shoot because her cake business is called Leading Lady Cakes.
So let’s get to know Annie Bennett…
I decided, after nearly 30 years of primary teaching, that I needed to start something new.
Creating beautiful wedding cakes.
Wedding cake bakers are booked up way in advance, sometimes years. I sometimes get asked for a cake for within the following week… usually, it just can’t be done!
“I was worried that I’d be nervous, and my face wouldn’t look natural… forced smiles and all that. I felt so relaxed right from the start that didn’t happen at all. My favourite part was wearing my Leading Lady dress that I’d made specially, and with the hair and makeup too, I felt fabulous!
Amanda has the knack for making you completely relaxed, so her photos show the real you.
The images have upped my engagement. I’ve used them on everything… including website and blog posts, and as a result, everything just looks spot-on professional.”
Success comes through effort, not talent.
I discovered a cocktail on my 40th birthday, called the Emma Peel. Pineapple juice, cherry brandy and champagne.
