Your wedding breakfast deserves a focal point – a splendid cake. So it must be planned in every detail. You can use this plan to ensure that your cake will take pride of place. At a consultation we can fully discuss all your requirements together with cake samples in relaxed surroundings.
When do you hold consultations?
Face-to-face consultations have been on hold due to covid but should resume again in the late Autumn (dates yet to be confirmed). In the meantime we are offering complementary sample boxes for collection from our home bakery (more details can be found here). Sample boxes over the summer months may be very limited and restricted to certain dates due to the high volume of weddings taking place.
When should I book a consultation?
If you’re marrying in peak wedding season (May-September) it’s best to get in touch at least twelve months before your wedding date, sometimes earlier. Outside of peak wedding season six to nine months ahead is usually sufficient. We can sometimes accommodate shorter notice weddings so please get in touch. We only take on a limited amount of weddings each week to be able to dedicate our time to each individual wedding.
We've not set a date or finalised the venue, could we still book a consultation?
We can only arrange a consultation once we’re sure of our availability for your wedding date. Until your venue is booked your date could be subject to change depending on the availability of the venue you ultimately choose. It’s best, therefore, to get in touch with us once your wedding date is arranged.
Can I bring along family and friends?
Consultations are usually just for the couple, or 2 people. We can sometimes accommodate one or two extra people but please let us know beforehand (the tasting samples would only be made for 2 people).
Do I need to pay a deposit before or after coming for a consultation?
You can either secure your wedding date with a £100 non-refundable deposit before a consultation. Or if you prefer to come along for a chat and tasting before making the commitment this can be paid after meeting. Please do bear in mind though that booking a consultation doesn't automatically reserve your wedding date.
Do you charge for consultations?
There is no charge for the consultation but the samples are limited to 4 flavours and for 2 people (usually the couple). If you would like to try any additional flavours these are charged at £5 per flavour per couple (payable by bank transfer before the consultation).
