At almost every wedding we have photographed, and there have been dozens and dozens, there has been a wedding cake. About the only exceptions have been an English bride marrying a Swiss groom, and in Swiss tradition, there isn't a cake. Other exceptions have been a large collection of cupcakes in place of a cake. Other than these few exceptions without a cake, the wedding cake is cut with a cake knife. We have seen some lovely cake knives too, some engraved with the name of the hotel, some very old ones with a long history, some new ones too. It is rare however to cut the cake with anything other than a cake knife. There are at the time of writing these two exceptions, both cut with a sword and the one shown here a military wedding, certainly a little different!
This wedding album triptych shows the bride and groom cutting the wedding cake with the groom’s officers’ sword as this was a military wedding. This wedding took place at Kenwood Hall Hotel in Sheffield, one of our favourite wedding venues in the city.
