A pair of Disney fans tied the knot earlier this week with a themed wedding dedicated to their favourite animated films.
Siobhan Perdue, 24, and Sean, 29, managed to combine their nuptials with an all-Disney themed day.
Their special celebration included Disney character themed place cards, a seating plan with tables named after Disney, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse balloons, and a bright Disney-esque colour theme. The flower girls were even dressed up as Disney princesses.
Then there was the pièce de résistance: a 3ft 10 inch tall cake, each tier made up of respectively chocolate, red velvet, vanilla, toffee, caramel and carrot cake.
“When I first saw the cake, I almost cried it was perfect,” says bride Siobhan. “It was the talk of the wedding, I had so many messages the following day about it – even more than the actual ceremony.”
“I was so impressed, every tier was amazing and each one represented our guests table, the Toy Story themed table had figurines and balloons and the same with Frozen, Aladdin and the rest,” she adds. “We still have eight tiers left so I think we will be eating cake for the rest of the year!”
Although Siobhan does not want to reveal the cake’s total cost, she will admit it was “in excess of £1000”.
Of the pair’s choice to have a Disney themed wedding, she explains: “[Sean and I] both absolutely love Disney, the first film we watched together was ‘Beauty and The Beast’ – it only seemed right to have a Disney themed wedding.”
The cake was created by Blissful Bakes and Tea Room in Swansea who took 22 hours to bake and decorate the sweet treat.
Mandy Heskins, the bakery’s manager, says: “We have never baked a cake this big before, six tiers is our biggest.
“We were all so excited to give it ago and were completely up for the challenge!
“It took six hours to bake each of the cakes and then 16 hours to decorate, it was fun for everyone but I imagine nerve wrecking for those who had to carry it. I would love to make more cakes like this in the future!”
Earlier this month, we heard about the McDonald’s wedding package available in Hong Kong, which includes a tiered apple pie wedding cake, a homage to the iconic dessert.
