On Saturday 3rd November, we had the pleasure of catering for the marriage of June and Peter who married at Lewtrenchard before returning to the beautiful Coombe Trenchard, just down the road, for the wedding reception.

The couple wanted a small intimate wedding, celebrating with their nearest and dearest in the grand yet cosy dining room in the main house. On arrival, we greeted them in the morning room with mulled wine, prosecco, bottled beers and eldeflower presse whilst a close friend sand and played the guitar. As the guests mingled, we served a selection of canapes rye bread with proscuitto, cream cheese and olive; smoked salmon, cream cheese and dill blinis with micro dill…

They then moved through to the dining room where we began with homemade leek and potato soup, made with produce from the Tamar valley; prawn cocktail with granary bread and butter and dressed salad; and chicken liver, brandy and thyme pate, toasts with a Devon chutney and dressed salads.

In the evening, guests could mingle in the lounge in front the crackling fire nibbling on cheese and  biscuits and warm pasties with a steady supply of tea and coffee also on offer.
