I recently saw some really gorgeous wedding cakes and it set me to thinking.
Cake has been a popular item in weddings in many cultures and can be traced back in history. In Ancient Greece a cake made of barley was broken over the brides head as an element of the ceremony.
But how big is too big when it comes to wedding cake? I checked with the Guinness Book of records and the biggest wedding cake on record weighed in at 6.8 tonnes and was made for a wedding fare.
In the 19th century it was traditional to keep the top tier of the wedding cake and use it as the Christening Cake for the couples first child. Today many couples keep the top tier or a slice of cake to eat on their first anniversary as it is meant to bring good luck.
It is also said that if you put a slice of wedding cake under your pillow you will dream of the man you will marry.
Choosing a Celebrant to help you create that special ceremony is an important step towards making your occasion a really memorable one. Why not take advantage of the free initial meeting I offer ? I believe it is important to meet informally to discuss your ideas and what I can offer. Meeting also gives us an opportunity to explore the type of ceremony that would best suit your needs.
