These incredible pictures show a 12-metre-high sculptural pavilion built in the form of a three-tiered wedding cake and clad entirely in ceramic tiles that recently opened on an estate in the Buckinghamshire countryside.

The five-year Wedding Cake project at Waddeson Manor was the brainchild of celebrated Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos and combines a pavilion – a decorative building used as a shelter in a park or large garden – and the elaborate design of a wedding cake.
