Cakes by Nina would love to meet you for a chat to discuss your special day, we offer a very casual no pressure consultation. We would gratefully request that no more than two people come for consultations if possible as it makes it hard to concentrate when there are multiples of people thank you.
"Our ideal wedding clients know that their wedding day is a very special day. They understand that their cake is going to be part of a memorable event. They value high quality not just in the design aspect but the taste too. They appreciate the time and effort invested to create the perfect cake for their big day. They understand that this is a once in a lifetime event and they want the very best for their day"
Please note that ALL our cakes are freshly baked, we do not keep samples in the freezer, we are no longer able to offer free consultation where we can discuss the design, you try our delicious fresh baked cakes, but please have the courtesy to note these are baked fresh to order for you and if you are unable to come for any reason please do give us advance notice so we dont waste our time and ingredients.
Even if you dont know what you want we can guide you down the route to make sure you have the cake that is the centre piece and very specific to your day. Ideally your slot will be from half an hour to an hour long.
Bringing along colour swatches does help and an open mind to ideas, if you think an idea might be a little mad give us a go, if you can dream we can certaintly do our best to make it for you.
We would ask that you try and keep your appointment slot as close to possible to the time as sometimes we are actual run appointments back to back, we usually offer an hour consultation (if you have a rough idea of what you want), but sometimes two hours is required if we are starting from scratch. If you are running really late we would appreciate a telephone call to let us know as we may need to reschedule you.
We also have an excellent list of recommended suppliers, from florist, hairdressers and photographers.
All original designs at consultation stage belong to Cakes by Nina and will not be allowed to leave the building until you have decided you would like to go with Cakes by Nina at that stage we will give you a copy for your file. All prices are valid for 3 months after consultation, but if your wedding is say a year or two in advance Cakes by Nina will still honour the price given at consultation time as long as a deposit and forms are completed within 3 months of the consultation date.
We do not expect any of our potential clients to make a decision on the day so we will give you an order form to take away with you and if you do decide to go with Cakes by Nina we will be delighted to do this for you.
So thinking of getting married ring, email or text or even facebook us to arrange a non obligation chat today. Let your dream wedding cake journey begin
NO TIME WASTERS PLEASE THANK YOU
NEW EMAIL ADDRESS
Unfortunately due to a high increase in prices of our quality ingredients and our time involved we now need to cover some of the cost towards our time and the cost of materials to make cake samples for you.
This will be £30 going forward and needs to be paid before you come and if you book us will be deducted off the final bill. There is a special price of £15 if you have come via a a fair (please advise) this will be deducted off your final bill if you book us.
If you have come via a recommended venue or Bridebook we still offer a free of charge service.
We see people in the evenings Friday, during the day Saturdays unfortunately Sundays are no longer available, your consultation should take between half an hour and an hour. Please note your initial consultation is a time to try our cake which we choose to make for you together with discussing your exciting wedding cake design. We do not offer a second or third consultation just to try cake but are more than happy to make you three cake samples of your choosing which you can collect from us should you wish to do so Thank you, or we can post out a taster box to you free of charge if you have booked us or £15 if you haven't.
We kindly ask that you check out our pricing structure, with each picture there is a price underneath, these prices are not fixed as we can tweak about but it gives you a good guide, and if you have a rough idea of design you are more than welcome to send over to us prior to arranging a meeting so we are able to give you a guide price before you come. Please note we CANNOT hold dates without deposits received it is based on first come first deposit paid basis.
Thank you . . . .
Please also note you do not have to come for a consultation we are quite happy to do all the order via email if this suits you better, we now offer Taster Boxes.
Please note no deposit no order slot booked. If we do not hear from you within two weeks after a consultation we will presume you no longer require our services and will free up the date, but if someone comes before the two weeks is up we will offer the date of first paid deposit basis, so this doesn't mean the date is actually held for two weeks for you.
CAKE STANDS -
We have lots of various cake stands available for hire please ask at consultation.
Due to recent situations, unfortunately we have spent too much time chasing and locating cake stands, we no longer offer the service of collection of the stand this is solely the responsibility of the bridal party to ensure safe return of stand, which will need to be with us for the following weekend at the latest as we would have probably hired it out again, we will require a holding fee prior to cover any damages and any failure to return the stand, we thank you for your understanding
Please note we do live on a hill with a couple of flights of stairs to come up and we do request you remove your shoes when entering due to our wooden floor, this is just worth considering should you wish to bring elderly people to your consultation
Consultation Payment £30
Special Consultation Payment £15 if we met at a fair
Fee can also be paid when we initially meet at consultation before we start the design service via, cash, or card machine which will be deducted off final bill if you book with us.
