There's never been a better time to get vegan wedding cakes in London.
The number of people embracing a plant-based diet in the UK has quadrupled over four years. Bakeries have sprung up all over the capital to meet the demand, and traditional patisseries have added to their cake menus to get in on the act.
As anyone who's tried going vegan knows, a plant-based wedding cake doesn't mean compromising on flavour. There are some truly delicious options using fruit, nuts and vegetables, whether you want a bake or a raw cake. You may be looking at vegan wedding cakes to reflect your own diet; you may simply want to skip the dairy and other animal products in order to have a more eco-friendly wedding.
Whatever the reason, you don't have to compromise on style, either. Whether you want traditional, alternative or a total twist on the classic wedding cake (doughnut towers, we're looking at you), there's something to satisfy your sweet tooth - and delight even your non-vegan guests.

1. Flavourtown Bakery Vegan Cookies & Cream Cake - from £50
Who says fruit cake is a wedding essential? We'd much rather be tucking into a cookies and cream cake.

The cakes are baked to order and can be delivered to many London postcodes.
2. Cutter & Squidge Vegan Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake - from £39.50

Tangy raspberries with chocolate ganache? Yes, please! The largest size this cake comes in serves 8-12 people, making it perfect for small weddings, or you could order several for a dessert table of dreams. You can collect in store or Konditor deliver within London.

100% plant-based patisserie Ruby's of London offer a bespoke wedding service that includes doughnuts and dessert tables as well as cakes. However, if you're in a hurry (or just want to keep things simple), you can order one of their vegan bakes for delivery across Greater London, like this tempting peanut butter confection.
7. Organic Livity Raw Rubis Feerie Cake - from £36
Organic Livity offers a bespoke vegan wedding cake service, or you could choose a few of the mouth-wateringly inventive made-to-order creations to create a gourmet plant-based dessert table. Raw Ruby Feerie, for example, contains vegan white chocolate, raspberry, chia seeds and pomegranate.
8. Lola's Cupcakes Vegan Passion Fruit Cake - from £17
Did you know that Lola's Cupcakes also does full-size cakes? And vegan, at that. Their flavours incude chocolate fudge and pear with hazelnut, but we do like the sound of a vanilla sponge with passion fruit icing and compote.

Heart of Cake will create a vegan version of your ideal wedding cake, whether that's traditional, pared-back or alternative.
10. Crosstown Doughnuts Vegan Selection Box - £35 for 12
We've increasingly seen couples serving doughnuts rather than a traditional wedding cake. If that thought appeals, check out the vegan varieties available at Crosstown Doughnuts for pickup or London delivery.
11. Crumbs & Doilies Vegan Volcano Cake - from £65
This Crumbs & Doilies vegan bake sounds amazing. Red velvet sponge meets Oreo frosting - what could be finer on the taste buds?
12. Cake or Death Victoria Sponge - from £27
You can order a range of round cakes to collect from this Hackney vegan bakery, but we were just so taken with the idea of a classic Victoria sponge - plant-based, of course.
