It's such a privilege being a wedding photographer; spending time on the wedding day with people having fun, visiting stunning venues around Warwickshire, listening to hilarious speeches, and observing all sorts of things including looking at cakes. Cakes. What are you talking about, I hear you ask.

One of the first things I do when I walk into the wedding breakfast room, is look for the position of the wedding cake. This can often dictate how I shoot the room. But you see the thing is, they can be such a distraction. I mean who doesn't like looking at cake after all? Is it because we try and anticipate what it would taste like, or just admire the creative output of the cake baker?

Not sure what the answer is, but either way the wedding cake is often the focal point of the room when guests first walk in. And if the stars align, and the cake has been placed in a favourable position in terms of light and a clean background - then I LOVE shooting cakes. They can look very majestic and opulent indeed. Not sure I've called cake opulent before!

Tell you what though, my belly is starting to rumble looking at all of this cake. I need to pop to the kitchen and see if there are any chocolate biscuits left in the cupboard! If you are currently planning your wedding, I wish you loads of fun with deciding what design and flavours your wedding cake will be. Martin.
