Unless he has a friend in the industry he might have trouble finding a bakery that just lets him come in and bake his wedding cake.  If you can do it though, go for it.

I have never been in this situation, but the first thing I would do is check with local cooking colleges.  We have one here that has their own catering company (Sullivan College) and I would think that would be the easiest way to have your request accepted.  They might let your Fiance bake the cake in their facilities.

Your venue is covering their A**.  If a venue provides food then they are liable for anything that comes out of there.  Not saying this would happen at all, but if someone got sick at your wedding, they could be sued.

Check with your local health department about codes.  Be honest about your situation.  They will give you the best solution to the dilemma.  The biggest concern with probably be the use of eggs and butter.  These are considered “potentially hazardous” food items.  This means if they are stored or handled improperly, they expose consumers to the risk of foodborne illnesses. 

If you just need a licensed kitchen, you can check with a church or community center about using their facilities.
