A consultation is the perfect opportunity to tell me about all your ideas and show me your wedding inspiration (and I really love a good wedding Pinterest board!). I try to arrange consultations in advance, which are usually held on a Sunday once a month at a venue local to Grantham, Lincolnshire. However if weekends are no good for you please let me know and I will be as flexible as I can. At the end of our consultation you will get to take away a bag of delicious samples to try - yummy!
A payment of £20 is required in order to book a consultation, receive 4 cake samples and to have up to three bespoke designs and quotes created for you. If you have already booked your wedding date by paying the date retainer, there is no charge for the consultation.
If you live further away and can't meet up for a consultation, don't worry we can still organise every last detail via telephone and email. I have a lot of couples who can't make it to meet me in person, so I’m used to working like this.
I can send a box of four cake samples via next-day delivery to you, so you still get to all the best bits of wedding planning! A charge of £28* is required in order to hold a phone consultation, receive cake samples and to have up to three bespoke designs and quotes created for you.
* If you decide to book in with me £20 will then be deducted from the date retainer (the remaining £8 covers the cost of postage and packaging).
If you would like to try some before committing to meeting you can purchase a sample box containing four flavours for £23 including postage and packaging.
In order to book your wedding date a non-refundable date retainer totalling one third of the total of your order must be paid. For orders less than the value of £300 half of the total must be paid. If you have paid for a consultation or phone consultation then this will be deducted from the date retainer.
An invoice will be sent to you and payments must be paid via BACS transfer, cheques are not accepted. Please note that no wedding dates are held until this payment has been made.
Example 1 - Order over £300
If a three-tiered semi-naked cake with drips costs £403, the date retainer to secure the wedding day will be 1/3 of the total which is £134.33. The remaining balance of £268.67 will be due for payment two months before the wedding date.
Example 2 - Order under £300
If a two tiered semi-naked cake costs £215, the date retainer to secure the wedding day will be 50% of the total which is £107.50. The remaining balance of £107.50 will be due for payment two months before the wedding date.
PAYMENT OF BALANCE
I will confirm your payment date(s) when you have booked, and will send a reminder before it is due. All payments must be paid via BACS transfer, cheques are not accepted.
