Honeymoon in Kenya

Why not consider a honeymoon with an element of adventure?

Kenya offers the relaxation on beautiful beaches, swimming in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and the excitement of a Safari.

Relax for a few days in a luxury lodge over looking the water hole where the big cats and other wild animals come to drink in the cool of the evening. Then travel in a comfortable open top mini-bus or jeep through the magnificent scenery and spend the day finding and viewing the beautiful animals in their natural environment.

About Our Cheese Wedding Cakes:-

Cheese Wedding Cakes have become a regular feature of the wedding reception over the last few years. Often used as a replacement to traditional wedding cake, and more frequently as an additional cake to add an exciting focal point at the reception.

The name is slightly misleading in that no cake is used, rather a wedding cake effect is created by layering a number of cheeses which are typically dressed in fruit or flowers to create a beautiful “Cheese Wedding Cake”.
Most wedding receptions will have a cheese course of some sort; the cheese wedding cake simply creates a feature out of the cheeses rather than having them pre-cut by caterers. There is limited, if any, additional cost in having the cheeses in the form of a cake over having them pre-cut, as by ordering whole cheeses we are able to offer a discount which typically will cover the costs of any additional dressing you may wish to adorn the cake with.

We take a tailored approach to creating your cake. Where possible we seek to find out what your preferences are, guest numbers, etc and give you a bespoke cake that we believe will exactly meet your requirements. We do not charge for this service.


As a typical indication of likely cost, we recommend basing the sizing of the cake on 100g of cheese per person. A few people love cheese and will eat more but this is typically compensated by those that don’t eat cheese at all.

The price of different cheeses varies greatly depending on age, milk type, scarcity and production methods, however on average it generally works out to be £2 per 100g and it’s the basis on which it’s possible to give an indicative price for a cheese wedding cake. So based on having 100 people at the wedding we suggest budgeting for £200 for the cheese.

If the cheese wedding cake replaces the traditional wedding cake completely it is worth adding a further 25% to the above.

We will provide an exact price once we have jointly agreed the list and volume of cheeses. The pricing of our cheese wedding cakes is based on our standard shop price, less a 10% discount. We do not charge for the consultancy on the cake, so this is all you will pay. Our pricing is based on you picking up the cheeses from the shop (we are open 7 days a week) and on the supply of the cheeses not on dressing of the cake.
