On Thursday 29th June, we were the chosen caterers for the wedding of Veryan and David at Tavistock town hall, in Devon.
Luckily the rain stayed away as Veryan arrived at the town hall, in her dream horse and carriage, and members of the public stopped to watch them go by.
After the wedding ceremony in the town hall, we turned the room around ready for the wedding breakfast, whilst the happy couple went for a ride in the horse and carriage, and guests went for a stroll around the town. Upon the return of the bride & groom, and their guests, we served a cold buffet which included Westcountry beef sourced from our local butcher here in Okehampton; home cooked gammon ham with a honey glaze; a charcuterie selection; fillet of fresh salmon from Plymouth with prawns and a lemon and dill mayonnaise; smoked salmon; chicken drumsticks sourced from Creedy Carver in Crediton; cocktail sausages; and wild mushroom, pine nut and sun dried tomato filo tart.
Guests could help themselves to mixed green leaf salad with cherry tomatoes and cucumber; new potatoes with fresh herb butter; spicy saffron rice salad with pineapple, sultanas and peppers; minted pea, bean and orzo salad; tabbouleh, bulgar wheat, fresh herbs, peppers, spring onions and walnuts, piquant dressing; carrot, orange and cashew nut salad with cumin; beetroot, feta and walnut on rocket with balsamic dressing, along with assorted condiments and baskets of bread and Devon butter.
Guests then had the choice of summer berry pavlova, classic crème brulee with shortbread, rich chocolate tart with fresh raspberries or lemon & lime posset with a biscuit crumb for dessert along with plenty of Cornish clotted cream and a selection of cheeses, crackers, celery and grapes. Following this, we poured freshly brewed English breakfast tea and fresh filter coffee.
After clearing everything away, we left the happy couple, their friends and family to enjoy the rest of their evening.
Thank you Veryan and David for letting us be a part of your special day and many congratulations, once again.
