On Saturday the 26th March we were thrilled to be the wedding caterers for Jess and Ciaran that married at Shebbear Church, near Holsworthy in Devon and followed this with a reception at Launcells Barton, over the boarder near Bude in Cornwall. And what a fantastic day it was with the sun shining like a summer wedding day.
We even had a chat with a family about where the boarder is located and where they would have crossed it from travelling from the church to the wedding venue.
The families dressed the wedding venue with drapes and fairy lights, which looked lovely. They made their table centres for each table, which continued the theme with small lights.
Stunning Cornish weather meant be could serve the guests canapes outside in the courtyard. These included Sun Dried Tomato Crostini with Cream Cheese and Sun Dried Tomato; Mini Butchers Sausages with Sticky Hoi Sin Glaze and Porcini Mushroom Arancini with a Saffron Mayo Dip.
We also served Crispy Bacon and Smoked Cheddar Tartlet, which went down a storm!
The Wedding Breakfast started with Roast Topside of Devon Beef served with a Homemade Yorkshire Pudding with a Rich Gravy or Chicken Supreme with a Creamy Leek, Mushroom and Smoked Bacon Sauce. For the vegetarian option we served Sweet Potato, Mozzarella, Sun Dried Tomato and Basil Filo Tart with Homemade Pesto.
For Dessert Jess and Ciaran chose a Baked Tia Maria Cheesecake topped with Hazelnuts and Sour Cream.
A warm White and Dark Chocolate Brownie with Chocolate Sauce.
Along with Individual Mixed Berry Pavlova with a Red Berry Coulis. All the desserts with accompanied by bowls of Clotted Cream.
To finish the Wedding Breakfast we served Fresh Filter Coffee or Tea with Homemade Chocolate Truffles and Mints.
The newly weds had their very own sweet cart, which the guests loved, especially the children and helped to keep everyone fuelled for the dancing.
It was a truly beautiful day with the sun shining and great to provide the catering for this lovely couple. Great to see some Oaktree friends and catch up with Mark from Evolve Photography who took the fab shot of the couple.
Thank you for letting us share in your day and wishing you, Mr and Mrs Jones all the very best for your future together.
