Cheese Wedding Cakes

Dress? ✔️   Venue? ✔️.  Flowers? ✔️   Cheese?   Here's the big question - how will cheese feature on your special day?

Put cheese at the heart of your wedding celebrations with a magnificent centrepiece of artisan cheese that will not only look beautiful but also offer your guests a delectable feast to enjoy and keep up their dancing energy!

Cheese wedding cakes provide a fabulous opportunity to add a special touch to your celebrations as they can be personalised in a number of ways to create a traditional tiered tower with a difference.


Cheese wedding cake

Choosing cheese from Slate ensures you have delicious artisan cheese in perfect condition on your big day. We have designed a range of cheese wedding cakes that cater for celebrations of different sizes from 20 to 135 guests. We recommend 70g to 100g of cheese per person depending on other food being served during the celebrations and your available budget. In designing the stacks, we have considered dietary requirements to offer pasteurised options for those unable to eat raw milk cheeses, and some cheeses made with vegetarian rennet. Each of our cheese wedding cakes offers a balanced selection of cheese styles once it has been dismantled for eating.

Within the carefully chosen layers of our cheese wedding cakes we hope you’ll find cheeses you love, including your favourite cheese or one that is important to your relationship – perhaps a cheese made in significant place such as where you met, first went on holiday, or got engaged? For couples getting married here in Suffolk we have a several options showcasing East Anglian cheeses which offer guests a change to discover delicious local cheeses often little known outside the region.

Our cheese wedding cakes are available for nationwide courier delivery or collection from either of our Suffolk shops. The cheeses arrive unadorned, ready for assembly and decoration.

The cheeses come clearly labelled so they are easily identified and can be stacked in the correct order.

We have the following advice for creating and decorating a stunning tower of cheese:
