23 Unique Wedding Cheesecakes for Cool Couples

Swap out the traditional wedding cake for a creative cheesecake alternative. Playful, pretty and, most importantly, delicious, we've got all the wedding cheesecake inspiration you'll need...

From the soppy speeches to the smiling snapshots, wedding days are full of cheese. So, we think it's an excellent idea to add even more into the equation with a not-so-traditional wedding cheesecake. 

The ideal way to offer a new take on a sweet treat after your wedding meal, they're unique, fun and a real crowd pleaser. Plus, you can easily style them to suite your taste and wedding theme. From chic designs with flowers and fruit to rich flavours with chocolate and sauces, the possibilities are endless. 

If you don't have a sweet tooth at all, wheels of cheese are a grate (sorry), option and they look amazing if you're having a rustic wedding. Or, if you don't eat dairy there are lots of savoury and sweet vegan cheesecake alternatives.

To give you some inspiration, we've rounded up 23 mouthwatering wedding cheesecake ideas that you won't be able to resist.
