Anges de Sucre - Find My London Wedding Macarons (not macaroons!)

Reshmi Bennett of Anges de Sucre in her London macaron making headquarters This morning I have a couple of treats for you! Firstly, let me introduce a lovely friend of mine, Reshmi Bennett. She is the mastermind behind Anges de Sucre and creator of those irresistible little mouthfuls of French joy - macarons. (At times mistakenly called macaroons - but let's not get into that here!) Ex-investment banker turned chef, Anges De Sucre is not just a job for Reshmi, it's her passion. And when you taste these little delicate delights...you'll be able to tell.

She's a favourite for wedding couples, bridal press and the world's elite, creating perfectly formed macarons by hand, patiently one by one. No conveyor belts, no outsourcing and certainly no expense spared. 

I’ve been so eager to share Reshmi's macarons on here because they are possibly the tastiest I've ever eaten. I'm quite lucky really as Reshmi and I live quite close to one another. I've managed to conjure up a number of reasons to 'pop' over to her kitchen and hang out now - each time getting a batch of macaron-goodness in my tummy! ;) Her sweet round treats are ridiculously creative too...just look at these flavours! I'm currently loving the Amalfi Citron. A little bit of lemon loveliness! 

Let me hand over to Reshmi now but be sure to pop back later for a little wedding macaron related freebie! 

P.s. All of the photos you see below are indeed Anges de Sucre macarons. Unreal.

...one of the most joyous occasions to declare your commitment and love while being surrounded by the most important people in your lives. The food, booze and dancing are all wonderful extras on top.

...compromise on quality and will only source the best of ingredients such as free range eggs, organic vanilla pods, fresh fruit and premium liqueurs which comes through in our flavours.


... it would have to be The Piano Bar on High Street Kensington. It’s a great little place with a fabulous and jolly crowd indulging in good house wine and a sing-song alongside a charismatic pianist playing classic rock, pop and chart covers. It’d be great for date nights, hen dos, or just because.

MAC make-up master classes. They do special Bridal ones in most branches where they teach how to achieve three different looks and recommend the best tones and shades for each individual. It’s great to attend with bridesmaids! 

Follow it up with a blow-dry at Hershesons with a bottle of bubbles and some macarons, and you’re picture perfect.

Having seen Reshmi in the kitchen, spent time with her at bridal fairs, helped set up at weddings and even watched her going to extraordinary lengths to find the perfect ingredients (her 100% organic vanilla pods are personally sourced from Papua New Guinea) you can be assured that this lady will create wedding macarons beyond your expectations. 

Whether you choose macarons as your wedding favours, decide on a macaron tower instead of a wedding cake or simply buy a little box as a treat to yourself after the big day, you won't be disappointed. I can recommend Anges de Sucre wholeheartedly. 

(And don't tell her I told you this...but she makes thee most amazing handmade marshmallows too...seriously...this girl doesn't stop.)

Much love,

  8. These macrons are looking very delicious. Yes, these are good things to place on tables in a wedding ceremony. I’ll also do so in my bro’s wedding.
