Back in April 2019, Alice and David asked us to be their wedding caterers for their October 2020 wedding, which was to be held near Bude in Cornwall.
Due to the dreaded pandemic, this day was postponed, but finally took place on 4th June 2021 and was our second micro wedding of the year and what a great one it was!!
Alice and David were married at Marhamchurch before returning to their tipi reception at David’s parents home, where the tipis stood perfectly on the sand school.
The weather was perfect, with the sun shining and a light breeze to keep everyone cool, we served champagne on arrival along with a selection on homemade canapes, which included Red Pepper and Goats Cheese Bites with a Tomato Salsa,
Chicken and Thyme Pate on Crostini, Mini Yorkshire Puddings with Roast Beef and Horseradish Cream
Crispy Bacon and Smoked Cheddar Tarts, Chicken Tikka Masala on Poppadoms with Mango Chutney and Parmesan Shortbread with Cream Cheese, Semi Sec Tomatoes and Fresh Herbs
At 5.15pm, after some photos with pets and ponies and our Jo lending a hand….
…. the guests took their seats in the tipi for the first meal with the new Mr and Mrs.
The tables were set with beautiful crystal glasses, candles, gold cutlery and chargers with foliage down through the centre of the tables by the girls at Bleujen in Bude, it was great to be back seeing these friendly faces.
We placed artisan breads and a selection of olives and dips on the tables for the guests to enjoy while listening to the speeches.
Each guest had a beautiful personalised menu for their meal selection
For the main event we served a slow cooked blade of beef in a rich red red wine, mushroom and smoked bacon sauce, or a chicken breast with a leek, tarragon and a white wine cream sauce or a sweet potato, mozzarella and sun dried tomato and basil filo tart all serve with crispy roast potatoes and a summery panache of vegetables.
For dessert we served a trio of salted caramel brownie, raspberry pavlova and crème brulee
This followed with tea, coffee, homemade truffles and mints.
Alice and David had their first dance with a live saxophonist and the atmosphere in this tipi was amazing, full of happiness and emotion for this lovely couple.
Before we left for the day we cooked up some fresh and tasty pizzas
This was a truly fantastic wedding day to be catering for and it was emotional for us to be back in a marquee environment doing the job we love after such a long time. The butterflies were certainly fluttering that day with excitement!
Massive congratulations again Alice and David and thank you for letting us cater for you both on your special day.
