Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary to this lovely couple. A wonderful day at Rothamsted Manor last July.
Arriving from Church in a beautiful white Rolls Royce, we greeted the happy couple, family and friends with Prosecco and canapés on the front lawn. After many photographs and garden games we moved into the Great Drawing Room for the wedding breakfast. A starter of Smoked Salmon, Soda Bread, Celeriac Remoulade, Radish, Caper and Watercress, Orange Dressing followed by a main course of Parmesan Chicken Breast, Saute Baby Potatoes, Summer Vegetables, Salsa Verde, Parmesan Crisp delighted the guests. A trio of desserts followed served with tea & coffee. After speeches the guests moved into the library whilst we cleared the room and the dance floor was laid and the DJ set up. A great evening followed of dancing and laughter. A wonderful celebration shared by all!
20th July 2019 the lovely Katie & Jamie had their wedding reception at the stunning Lodge Farm! I had the pleasure to Event Manage their day, so I had been very involved with the family in the planning of this awesome day and felt very proud of everything we delivered for them.
A beautiful ceremony performed by Katie’s Uncle started the magical day followed by Pimms and canapés on the terrace. Once inside the Tipi, we served them our “posh” BBQ which we serve to the tables. It looked and smelt delicious! They choose Sticky Maple Boneless Chicken Thighs; Haloumi & Vegetable Skewers; Lamb Leg Skewers and Charred and glazed mini beef brisket. This was accompanied by Cajun Roasted sweet potato; Redslaw; Roasted med vegetables and Moroccan Cous Cous. A trio of desserts followed to complete the meal.
Katie & Jamie had arranged for Singing Waiters, none of guests knew about this, so they worked with Kingfisher staff helping to serve and clear, and they were really good although a bit strange with their fake Russian accents! After dessert they broke into song and had the whole room cheering and laughing! A great addition to the day!
Speeches followed, and then dancing way into the evening. Katie DJ’d and she rocked the dance floor. A wonderful day, with lovely clients, a pleasure to of been part of such a memorable day!
Another lovely couple who we will always remember, a fantastic day at Lodge Farm 2017 in the summer sunshine. Ceremony in the secret garden, followed by Prosecco and canapés on the terrace. Moving into the Tipi for dinner they choose the BBQ option, cooked to perfection by chefs David and Tim. Honey, Soy And Chorizo Chicken Skewers; Monkfish, Tiger Prawn And Salmon Skewers; Marinated Haloumi And Vegetable skewers and Rosemary, Honey And Garlic Lamb Cutlets.
Accompanied by Homemade Coleslaw; Rocket salad; Roasted Med Vegetables and Cajun Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges. For dessert they had chocolate brownies and strawberry’s.
A great band played throughout the evening and with the tipsy pony keeping everyone well refreshed, they had a great party! Leaving to a line of sparklers Steph & Andy ran up to the house amid cheers and laughter! A lovely couple and a brilliant day had by all!
We are so proud to have been part of this great campaign. Meals for the NHS mission began back in March to support local hospitals battling COVID-19. On hearing that at the end of gruelling shifts, frontline NHS staff were faced with closed canteens and nothing to eat, these exceptional people decided to make a difference.
12 weeks later, the help of 100 volunteers, more than 200 local food providers, who were also in desperate need of an economic lifeline, and incredibly generous donations of £1.7+m, they have now delivered 225,000+ to 117 hospitals across the country.
Doing our bit here at Kingfisher, we have provided 1,030 Meals to local hospitals; Luton & Dunstable, Bedford, Milton Keynes and Watford.
Recently they have been really happy to see many of the hospitals reduce their orders for meals as COVID-19 cases begin to subside, so the decision to work towards The Big Finish for Meals for the NHS has begun, with the last meals being delivered on 30th June 2020.
You can’t save the nation on an empty stomach!
Four years ago yesterday we catered for Lauren & Robbie’s Wedding in Wheathampsted. A beautiful summer’s day with @Tipis4Hire on the 18th green of an old golf course, with views of the fairway. It was so special as they first courted here as Lauren worked as a Nanny to the family who own the land; this place will always hold a special place in their hearts.
So last night we recreated their wedding breakfast menu for them to enjoy at home to celebrate their Wedding Anniversary.
A delicious meal of Smoked salmon & celeriac remoulade to start, followed by Rump of lamb, mint dauphinoise, pistachios, summer vegetables, lamb jus, and a Glazed lemon tartlet, passion fruit with clotted cream for dessert.
I also had the pleasure to Event Manage their day, it was my first Event Management role and such a pleasure working with a lovely couple. We wish them every happiness in their future together.
Our couples are finding different ways to celebrate their wedding anniversaries and their ‘would of been wedding days’ in these unusual times with restaurants and bars closed due to COVID-19. The old going out out! is now going out . . . but staying in!
Last night we recreated Matt & Dianna’s main wedding breakfast menu for them to enjoy at home to celebrate their 1st Wedding Anniversary.
At Brook Farm last June we served a BBQ of Beef And Stilton Burgers; Lamb Leg Skewers Marinated In Mint, Orange And Red Chilli; Chicken, Chorizo, Honey and Soy Skewers accompanied by Homemade Slaw; Greek Salad; Rocket, Parmesan, Pine Nuts And Balsamic Salad and Parmentier Potatoes.
A great way to mark the day and still celebrate in style! And also to have delicious Kingfisher food again!
Happy Anniversary to you both! xxx

This day last year – 8th June 2019 – the lovely Amelia & Patrick had their wedding reception at the beautiful Brook Farm! I had the pleasure to Event Manage their day, so I had been very involved with the family in the planning of this awesome day and felt very proud of all our staff and what we delivered for them.
130 guests arrived to canapés and Prosecco in the sunshine served by the lake before entering the Tipi for their wedding breakfast. We served Hog Roast and BBQ platters of Sticky Maple boneless chicken thighs, Haloumi and Vegetable Skewers and marinated lamb leg, in orange, red chilli and mint. Sides of Buttered new potatoes, greek salad, Tuscan panzanella and homemade redslaw completed the feast. We served Lemoncello for toasts followed by a stunning naked wedding cake with berries and cream.
Corabar Entertainment provided DJ and background music all day, and Blag Band were the band in the evening. An extra 70 guests arrived and they all danced the night away to great music and we served fish and chip cones and bacon baps to keep the munchies at bay! A client stocked bar kept Mark and his team busy all evening and the guests well hydrated!
A day we will never forget! Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary Mr & Mrs Greenwood! xx
