Choosing the style for your wedding is one of the biggest decisions you will make.
It sets the tone for the whole event, and tells your guests about the two of you as a couple.
The style you choose will help you to theme many of the elements on the day, from the flowers to the room décor, as well as the groom’s suit, bridesmaid’s dresses and the all-important bridal gown.
The cake also plays an important role in setting the perfect tone for your special day, making it a memorable occasion not just for you but for all your friends and family. Naturally, at Patisserie Valerie, we have a range of cakes to make your day truly magical.
So how do you choose your wedding style and find the perfect cake to match?
