Cake Cutting and Persian Knife Dance
Photography by Calin
One King West


Cake cutting is one of the wedding highlights. Cake cutting is even more important in a  Persian wedding as the groom has to earn the right to cut the cake. Purchasing the right from the knife dancers set back this groom a few hundred dollars. 

At this Persian wedding the bride and groom's relatives took the knife and started dancing and requesting payment for the knife. After they tricked the groom into paying each dancer and not giving away the knife, the last dancer agreed to give the groom the precious knife so he can cut the cake.

This wedding album spread features photos from the cake cutting and the knife dance at beautiful One King West held in downtown Toronto.

Location: 1 King St W, Toronto, ON M5H 1A1.
