Not your average wedding (Picture: SWNS)

Weddings are about the couple, their lives together and their quirks.

One couple preparing for their nuptials had no problem incorporating their personalities into their cake. For Kelly Robertson and Steven Ball, the choice was clear.

They decided to have a Buckfast-themed cake. The caffeinated tonic wine was the dessert of choice as 36-year-old Kelly and 38-year-old Steven wanted to inject some humour at their wedding.

The whole affair bucked trends as Kelly also wore a black wedding dress and strutted down the aisle to the sound of AC/DC’s Back in Black.

When the couple, from South Lancashire, went to the reception in a rugby club, they were astonished to see how their wedding cake turned out.

From the front, it looked traditional – clad in white icing decorated with flowers, silver ribbon and a ‘Mr & Mrs’ sign on top.

But turned around, the white icing parted over dark green icing, featuring three edible Buckfast labels.

And of course, they came with two mini Buckfasts which the couple happily knocked back.

‘My partner and I really like Buckfast and I joked that we should get a Buckfast cake,’ explained Kelly.

‘My sisters just laughed it off, but they went away and spoke to a lady and said she could make a Buckfast cake.

‘I was like “no way, go for it”.’

She thought it was a bit of a laugh, but was thrilled when big sisters Alix and Nikki came through on their promise.

Project worker Kelly added: ‘I was taken aback and blown away by it,’ adding that it tasted ‘amazing’.

The booze-themed cake was also-suitable for the children at the wedding including her sons Joshua, 14, and Joseph, aged six.

Kelly added: ‘One of my sisters joked about putting Buckfast through it, but we’ve got a lot of kids in my family so I said don’t.’

Her husband, who works as a civil engineer, shares Kelly’s sense of humour.

‘Steven loved it as well.’ added Kelly. ‘The two of us like Buckfast and he was right up for it. It’s an acquired taste but it’s got to come from the fridge.

‘I do like my classic rock music too. Steven and I have our own way of doing things.

‘It injected a good bit of humour into the day.’
