Vikki & Ben’s Real Wedding

Ben and Vikki knew of each other for a while, but their relationship blossomed when they finally met properly one September evening in Vodka Revolutions in Southampton, in 2009. They were together for six years before tying the knot in a super fun wedding that included a bake off and fairground rides!


The Naked Wedding Cake

Vikki and Ben both knew the wedding cake had to be chocolate and it had to be naked, as neither of them like icing or marzipan. They (well, Vikki) wanted something simple, beautiful and delicious.


The amazing cake was made by Ben’s uncle Pete, and it was the most moist, delicious cake Vikki had ever tasted. It was made from chocolate sponge and had a white chocolate filling. The cake was decorated with pink orchids to match Vikki’s bridal bouquet and was decorated with tiny bunting, made to match all the bunting at the wedding.

The cake was served after the meal with strawberries and cream, as well as all the bake off treats!

After their perfect wedding, Ben and Vikki set off on the honeymoon of a lifetime – they visited New York, Memphis and Las Vegas. Elvis fan Vikki got to go to Graceland. It was places they always had wanted to go so it really was a trip of a lifetime for them and the most amazing way to begin a new chapter of their life as husband and wife.
