Yes i have made this many time for christmas. You can make it a few months in advance, as long as you keep feeding it, wrap and store in a cool place.
Don't do the topping until closer to the wedding (few days will be ok)

Be careful about storing the cake if the weather warms back up.
check on delia's christmas cake recipes on how to feed a store your cake
Good Luck

I'm sure you already know, but just incase. You have to marzipan and leave to dry for a while before icing.
