Hello I am Leigh Bray of Creative Head and I am based in Preston, Lancashire 


I have taught a number of sugarcraft classes and love helping people achieve their goals through sharing my knowledge in a relaxed and friendly environment, whether they are simply participating as an existing hobby or if they are wanting to try something new.  I also love to create bespoke wedding and novelty cakes that are individual to my customer, meaning I rarely recreate the design twice. I love to advance my sugarcraft skills through attending a number of classes and weekend events during my career as a cake maker and teacher and previously assisting a friend who ran a cake shop with the modelling and sugarflower side of the business.


Creative Head was founded in 2000 in my home town of Bristol when I made my first novelty cake for Matthews 19th birthday which brought me such joy and to see his beaming face made me realise that this is what I wanted a career doing.


Having studied photography art and design at college, and then later trained as a personal trainer I offer wedding packages that cover getting into shape for both brides and groom, photography, make-up and the cake,  I find being closely involved with the bride and groom before the wedding helps me to provide them with a first class personal service. More recently I studied to be a mindfulness coach which helps me to help others bring balance into their lives and is particularly useful in helping brides and grooms and students with their concerns and anxieties.


I live with my partner Matthew and three children who themselves are very creative, so the house is always full of new projects. In my spare time I value spending quality time with my family whether we are baking together or chilling out, I love travelling, reading, cinema and finding new ideas and skills to bring into my business.
