Cake Smash, Oldham, Greater Manchester


“One of the First and Leading Specialists in Cake Smash Photography in the Northwest “

‘Happimess’ – our 3-in-1 Cake Smash experience that your baby will love.

Letting them loose on their big, bright, personalised cake and capturing their expressions, smiles and giggles as they smash the cake to a gooey mess!

We start these sessions with wooden letters spelling ONE, then the cake smash, followed by the Tub and Bubbles wash off.

We believe the messier the better … and these sessions are seriously great fun for everyone.

We have 3 packages in our current sale shown below.

Our Polka Dot Cake is INCLUDED in ALL packages. These are 2 layered sponge cakes covered in butter icing in a choice of colours with polka dot discs (again in a choice of colours).

We can also provide various fab bespoke cakes for your cake smash at a hugely discounted rate and all are made especially soft and gooey for maximum mess! (see below for details)

All cakes are personalised and you can add any of them to your chosen sale package. Choices and prices shown below, but contact us for any specific requirement.

We are able to offer allergy free cakes – so please advise on booking if required.

Had an absolute amazing day. I contacted Gaynor with regards to a 1st Birthday Cake Smash photo shoot and luckily there was a slot for me for the following week. A very professional, friendly lady with lots and lots of patience. Even with a 1yr old trying to rob the camera to look at photographs before hand Gaynor remained very professional, even showed her a few. Everything that I had envisioned for my little girl's day Gaynor pulled off with much much more to offer. Highly recommended. Thank you very much for such a memorable day.

I booked my son Harvey for a cake smash for his first birthday. He was more interested in eating the cake than the camera but Gaynor managed to capture some beautiful & comical photos of him. He was tired and cranky come bath time but managed to get one smile while in the tub. She is an amazing photographer and also such a lovely lady, she gives off such a warming and caring vibe. I will definitely be booking a family photoshoot soon. Thankyou Gaynor X

My daughter had a first birthday cake smash and we enjoyed the session from beginning to end. She was teething and a little grizzly but as soon as the cake came out everything changed. Gaynor was very patient and made the session fun and relaxing and now we have wonderful memories of her first birthday captured in some brilliant photos. Thank you Gaynor.
