Describe your typical process with a couple.
I'm usually contacted with the couples date/venue and rough guest numbers.
I talk through design ideasa based on colour scheme/theme/designs they may have seen online.
I ask for a budget and discuss a quote.
I would then request a consultation to meet the couple face to face to go over colour matching, finer details etc.. usually in the couples home. I bring taster samples in 3 flavours in 4" sizes mini cakes to share with friends and family afterwards. Deposit is paid and booked in.
Changes can be made up to two months before the wedding so I usually like to check in and make sure they are still happy with the Design, flavour choice and size.
On the day I Deliver to the venue and I offer my couples a photo of the cake all set up if they wish as many are busy getting ready and unable to come and see it before I leave.
After the day I invite the couples to leave me a review
