On Friday the 1st September 2017 we were the chosen wedding caterers for Kirsty and Alan that married in their home village of Sheepwash in Devon and then held their reception with family and close friends at Highampton Village Hall, just down the road.
We headed out to the hall on the Thursday to set up where the clever Val from ‘Flowers by Val’ had lined the hall. This is a great hall and has amazing views over Dartmoor, with a play area to keep the children and bigger kids occupied!! The hall was set in a square with their wedding cup cakes in the centre that were made by a friend.
After the ceremony we served a selection of drinks and canapes as the guests arrived. These included roast beef yorkshire puddings with creamed horseradish, smoked salmon blinis with micro dill and cream cheese, goats cheese, red onion and thyme tartlets and coronation chicken poppadoms with micro coriander.
For the Wedding Breakfast Kirsty and Alan chose their favourite dishes which were sausages and mash for Alan using local sausages from our butchers in Okehampton and Hunters Chicken for Kirsty, we followed this with key lime pie as Kirsty’s choice and homemade rhubarb crumble for Alan with lots of custard.
After some speeches and catching up with fellow guests the wedding day concluded with another celebration arranged for the next day. On the Saturday we returned to Highampton Village Hall for another party and what a great celebration it was. Here we served an Irish stew for Alan and his family to bring a little bit of their home to Devon. Along with a chicken korma, vegetable tagine and accompaniments such as nann breads, chutneys and poppadoms. The guests enjoyed a bowl of hot food for a change.
This was a lovely intimate wedding with a big celebration at a wonderful hidden gem venue in the beautiful Devon countryside, perfect for a wedding. Congratulations again Kirsty and Alan and we wish you all the very best for your future.
