On Saturday 29th July we were the chosen wedding caterers for Millie and Tim that married at the famous Devon church on the hill – Brentor and then returned to Lewdown for their reception in a medieval barn.
Despite heavy rain showers the couple married in dry weather, on arriving at the barn the guests enjoyed drinks and canapes on the lawn with amazing views over the Devon shire countryside. Just before the guests were called in for the Wedding Breakfast the rain came but certainly did not dampen anyone’s spirits.
To accompany the Pimm’s we served a selection of homemade canapes which included chicken liver pate and Oaktree chutney on crostini, roast beef mini Yorkshire puddings with horseradish cream……
…mini butchers sausages with a wholegrain mustard and honey glaze, crispy bacon and Gruyere tarts, crispy chicken skewers with a mustard mayo and tempura prawns with a sweet chilli dip.
The guests were lead from a marquee into the Medieval Barn that was set up with hessian, blue and pink flashes of colour which gave the barn a ‘wow’ factor as you went in, along with twinkling candles and fairy lights.
The family had some lovely touches that included a table plan board with animals and the rustic and pink theme which continued through the entrance with flowers.
The main meal was a buffet that consisted of roast beef that had come from Millie’s family Farm, honey glazed ham and a selection of homemade quiches. This was all served with a selection of homemade salads and crispy roast potatoes.
For dessert we served our famous sharing platters that consisted of lemon cheesecake, chocolate truffle torte, creme brulee and to follow on the pink Caroline made pink pavlovas with strawberries especially for Millie.
After the meal and speeches Millie and Tim cut the wedding cake which was beautifully made by a friend and decorated with fresh English Strawberries straight from Covent Garden market.
A really wonderful day, in a barn venue that had a great atmosphere. Thank you Millie and Tim for letting us cater for your beautiful Devon wedding.
