Amy and Jake have both grown up with sailing, hence the nautical themed wedding cake.

 Their whole wedding had a nautical theme, from the shells, nets, and ropes they used to dress their venue, to the venue itself - the Cliffs Pavilion overlooking Southend seafront. Their cake featured icing rope and anchors, nautical blue stripes, ships wheel and even their stand was made from a reel of rope. Their cake was a mix of strawberries & champagne, lemon and carrot sponges.
