Taking of Wine, or informal toasts, is almost always taken between courses at formal dinners such as Masonic festivals and  awards ceremonies but can also be included at weddings as it is an opportunity for the Bride and Bridegroom to acknowledge the presence of particular guests, such as other couples engaged to be married or celebrating an anniversary. At Louise and Richard’s wedding they were ‘pleased, honoured and delighted’ to take wine with guests who had travelled a great distance to be with them that day, as well as members of the hen and stag parties.
There are many stories about the origins of the wedding cake, and most of them are about as believable as the one I’m about to tell you…

…and if you want hear the rest of the story, drop me a line.
