Waddesdon reveal Joana Vasconcelos: Wedding Cake

The grounds of Waddesdon and Joana Vasconcelos: Wedding Cake sculpture

Wedding Cake - a 12-metre-high sculptural pavilion in the form of a three-tiered wedding cake, clad entirely in more than 25 thousand ceramic tiles - is a major new work by celebrated Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos opening at Waddesdon in Buckinghamshire on 8 June 2023.

Part sculpture, part architectural garden folly, Wedding Cake is an extraordinary, enormous, fully immersive sculpture which combines pâtisserie and architecture. Gleaming and icing-like outside and in, it offers an intricate and richly sensory experience – glazed in pale pinks, greens, and blues, beset with sculptural ornament and complete with the sounds of trickling water and a site-specific lighting scheme.

Wedding Cake is Vasconcelos' most ambitious commission to date, described by the artist as "a temple to love that celebrates festivity and marriage (artist's impression, right).
