Before we embark on a divinely delicious cake journey together, I would like to wish you a HUGE congratulations and warmest wishes on your engagement! I am delighted and honoured that you are considering Faith Jones to be part of one of the most important days of your life. As I have gone through the experience of getting married myself (and still being happily married to a man who is officially a cake monster!), I fully understand what it takes to make your wedding day enjoyable AND a success for both the bridal couple and all your guests.
I do of course offer traditional tiered wedding cakes with sugar flowers, pearls, diamonds and lace but I wanted to throw a new concept out to my vogue and adventurous couples: I design a unique collection of wedding cakes that are each inspired by something highly personal to the wedding couple (your wedding dress, your vows, an inherited item, a photograph, a poem etc.). Together they tell a story about you and are arranged together as a meaningful collection unique to you that is visually exquisite. I design with your budget in mind- see ‘Pricing’ section below for more information. The designs in the gallery below are examples only to showcase my concept and for you to take inspiration from. I treat my cakes as works of art and constantly try to push the boundaries of what is possible and out of the ordinary.
I give you perfection.
At Faith Jones, you buy a personal experience from start to finish, no matter how big or small your wish. I will always personally discuss and build your order with you, present you a hand-illustrated proposal to allow you to imagine the final result and make any changes prior to work commencing. The German side of me kicks in when it comes to an eye for detail. My aim is to make the process of ordering a cake as simple, fun and adventurous as possible. Let’s get all your senses involved!
Couture Product Range
99% of my work is made by hand and is freehand. I don’t believe in stencils or pre-fabicated moulds. I pride myself on producing quality, handmade, couture wedding cakes to the highest standards. I also offer edible wedding favours, dessert buffets, as well as blown sugar table centre pieces and cake toppers.
All my work is bespoke and depends on factors such as design detail, labour time, number of servings, design structure, just to name a few. Everything is handmade and I never make the same cake twice to ensure your design is unique to you. You can of course choose a design ‘off the peg’ from my existing gallery, but it will be subject to bespoke pricing as any custom design would. Wedding cakes start from £600-800. Initial Consultation: free of charge. Subsequent consultations are charged at £10 per hour. Initial 3 designs are charged at £100. Subsequent designs are charged at £10 per design and £10 per hour.
All dietary requirements are catered for; whether it's eggless, sugar-free, dairy free etc. Please just let me know (that bit is quite important as we don’t want any guests mysteriously disappearing forever due to a food allergy!)
Delivery & Collection
Your order can be collected from my studio address or delivered straight to your venue. Travel time, labour & mileage will be charged for if delivery is required. Once orders are collected, you are fully responsible and accountable for them. Once cakes have been delivered and set up, you are fully responsible and accountable for them.
How to Order
Recommended booking time: 3-6 months in advance of your wedding date. I recommend you secure your event date & time as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Step 1: Book initial telephone consultation (free of charge) to confirm date, venue, design requirements and discuss other details. Duration: approx 45 minutes. See the ‘Contact Me’ page for ways to get in touch. I ask that you email me design inspiration that you would like me to take into account when designing your cake collection (photos of your wedding dress, a poem, wedding vows, colour themes etc.) that I create a mood board with.
Step 2: It takes 2-4 weeks for me to create a design proposal for you that you are sent via email. You are required to sign and return a non-disclosure form before any custom designs are sent to you. A follow- up telephone consultation date is booked to discuss your choice and feedback on the designs and if any further changes need to be made.
Step 3: Once your design and booking details are confirmed, we ask that you pay 50% of the total invoice by the date specified on your order form. The balance must be paid no later than 30 days before your wedding date.
Boutique Tasting Parcel
Once your initial booking deposit has been paid, you are send a highly customised Boutique Tasting Parcel via courier. There is no limit to the choice of cake & filling flavours. You may choose up to three combinations. A sample 'swatch' of your chosen cake design is sent to you also, to help you visualise your cake design.
Prices start from £15.
Written cancellation (signed & dated) must be given with at least 30 days notice prior to delivery date (unless stated otherwise in additional notes section on this order form); 100% of balance will be otherwise charged and collected.
Nothing is impossible and every customer request is special to me.
I want your experience with me to be fun and personal.
Cake, sugar & cream (who needs kind regards!),
Lots of love always,
Faith Jones xxx
