Essential Extras

Essential Extras provide stunning vintage cake stands so that modern can meet traditional. Whether you decide to go Naked Sponge or Chocolate Temptation your wedding cake deserves to stand tall and proud on a gorgeous wedding cake stand. We hire out all those essential extras for a perfect vintage wedding.

I'm sure we all can remember looking at grandparents black & white wedding photos, especially the one of them cutting into their wedding cake.

The style may have changed over the years but there's no denying that the main edible attraction is still the wedding cake. The wedding cake is steeped in myth and tradition going back thousands of years: in  Ancient Greece cakes were thrown at the newly married couple to  promote fertility, in a similar fashion to the way confetti is thrown over a modern day couple.

The cutting of the cake by the bride and groom is without doubt one of the  highlights of every couples's wedding celebration. The tradition is believed to symbolise their shared future together.

If you want to add a vintage vibe to the occasion you can hire from my extensive collection of 20th Century Silver Plated Cake Stands.
