The tradition of the wedding cake comes from ancient Rome, where guests used to break a loaf of bread over the bride’s head for fertility’s sake.
I am not really a cake person, I’d rather have a sandwich.
Every time I shoot a wedding though, I eat a slice of the wedding cake: its flavour has been chosen among many, its design meticulously selected, and the pastry chef carefully picked.
It’s not just a cake, it’s a wedding cake. It's a ritual itself. It’s a piece of art.
Therefore it is a very important detail of the whole wedding day, as much as the bride’s dress.
So next time you see a wedding cake, think of how much thought and work were put into it.
And then, only then, taste it.
