On Saturday 29th April, we had the privilege of being the wedding caterers for Jenny and Alex at the Milky Way, in Devon. Following the ceremony at St Swithun’s Church, Littleham, the guests arrived at the Milky Way where we greeted them in the beautiful conservatory, with a selection of different gin and tonics, bottled beers and lemonade for the children and drivers. A ‘Super Sonic your Gin and Tonic’ station was set up, including a range of cordials and and citrus fruits, for guests to personalize their own drink.
A selection of cold and warm canapes were also served including tomato, mozzarella, basil with balsamic glaze on skewers; roasted vegetable bruschetta with feta; smoked salmon and cream cheese blinis with micro dill; honey and mustard glazed sausages; tempura prawns with a sweet chilli dip; and goats cheese, thyme and red onion tartlets.
Guests were called to take their seats in the rustic old barn, decorated with twinkling fairy lights and a photograph memory wall of the couple’s time together.
Each table was given a quiz on Jenny and Alex, to test the guests’ knowledge of the happy couple. For the main course, we served roast topside of Devon beef with a homemade Yorkshire pudding and rich gravy; and butternut squash, stilton and pecan nut wellington with a Madeira sauce, along with dishes of dauphinoise potatoes, carrots, kale and red cabbage for guests to help themselves.
Following this we served our homemade lemon cheesecake with fresh raspberries and our chocolate truffle torte, along with a bowl of Devon clotted cream for each table. To finish, guests were served fresh filter coffee, freshly brewed tea, homemade truffles and mints.
After the wedding breakfast, guests were treated to a go on one of the Milky Way’s attractions – the dodgems. In the evening, as the guests danced the night away, we served warm miniature steak and potato, and cheese and onion pasties along with sauces and chutneys, and the naked wedding cake made by a family member.
Congratulations, once again, Jenny and Alex and thank you for letting us be a part of your special day.
