Celebrity Wedding Cakes in Black and White

Hey, it's June and it's the wedding month! Weddings are incomplete if there's not an elegant cake present in the photographs. Even though these sweets were not as candy-colourful as they were in the actual events, the photographs are oozing with a saccharine trip to memory lane!

Our beautiful brides have said the most awaited “I do,” and our gorgeous grooms have unending smiles plastered on their faces — it is now time to celebrate their happily-ever-afters! As a way to commemorate the couples’ special day, the cutting/eating of their wedding cakes is an essential part and it must be well-documented, especially in photographs.

Here are a number of monochrome photographs of some of the most famous couples in history as they shared their very first piece of heavenly life as lifetime partners — their (usually towering) wedding cakes! (All images via life.com.)
