Icing on the cake for yoga couple

IT'S not every day you see a bride and groom posing for a photo in yoga postures but newleyweds Margot and Graham Richardson wanted to do things differently.

It was second time around for both of them so they decided to make an impact with an unusual wedding cake.

Topped with figures of a bride and groom in the tree position the top tier of the cake was held up by statuettes in the shoulder stand position.

"People loved it because it was so unusual," said Margot, of Bishop Thornton, who has been a yoga teacher in Harrogate for ten years.

The cake was made by Pauline Hook, of Glasshouses, who rose to the challenge of creating a fitting tribute to the couple.

Her creation was the centrepiece for the couple's wedding at Markenfield Hall last month.
