30 of the World's Greatest Wedding Cakes

Few things are more important on a wedding day (apart from both partners turning up; the ring being secure; and nobody objecting during the ceremony) than the cake. Very few weddings are without such a centrepiece. It's just a shame that so many couples opt for the same traditional, boring designs when there is so much opportunity to impress and surprise the guests.

Here are 30 brilliant examples, to be used as inspiration for your own big day.
