On Friday 21st July, we had the pleasure of catering for the wedding of Anne-Marie and Mark in a marquee set in the gardens of their family home in Luffincott, near Holsworthy, in Devon. The marquee, supplied by one of our favourite suppliers Hatch, looked amazing with Anne-Marie’s sophisticated ‘bling’ vision coming together beautifully. Dove grey table cloths and sparkly, silver sequined table runners adorned each table. Whilst mirrors reflected the eye catching pink floral displays in the centre of each table. Big letters spelling ‘love’ and a heart lit up the edge of the dance floor.
We greeted the guests with a glass of gin, eldeflower and apple cocktail, cider, bottled beers, or eldeflower presse for the children and drivers…
….as they mingled in the marquee awaiting the arrival of the bridal party and groomsmen in a convoy of tractors.
Before the bridal party joined us they slipped off to Luffincott Church which is in the garden at Anne-Marie’s family home for a blessing, what a wonderful treat to mark this special day.
We also served a selection of our cold and warm canapes which included mini assorted poppadoms with coronation chicken and micro coriander; miniature ‘toad in the hole’ with sweet caramelised red onions, crispy bacon and gruyere tartlet; crispy chicken skewers with mustard mayonnaise dip…
…and spiced vegetable samosas.
For the wedding breakfast, we served Roast Topside of Devon Beef served with yorkshire pudding and a rich gravy; chicken supreme sourced from Creedy Carver in Crediton with a smoked bacon and Somerset brie sauce; butternut squash, stilton and pecan nut wellington with a creamy madeira sauce along with bowls of crispy roast potatoes, carrots, broccoli and peas.
To follow, slate sharing platters were topped with chocolate brownie with a white chocolate drizzle, creme brulee pots, baby pink raspberry pavlovas and lemon cheesecake squares with a lemon confit, along with bowls of Cornish clotted cream.
We then poured freshly brewed tea and fresh filter coffee along side bubbly ready for speeches.
After clearing everything away and making some room for the selfie booth, we left the happy couple and their guests to dance the night away.
Thank you Anne-Marie and Mark for letting us be a part of your special day and many congratulations once again.
