Brook Farm in the rain!

So Saturday saw us back at Brook Farm for Luke & Helen’s wedding, ceremony took place over looking the lake out the front of the Tipis, beautiful apart from the fact the threatening rain started just as Helen made her way from the car. KF team quickly lifted all the laid tables carefully to the back of the Tipis to accommodate the 120 guests should the ceremony have to be moved. Luckily the rain was only slight so they managed it all outdoors!

The wind and the rain soon picked up, John & Stuart did a great job barbecuing 500 skewers half in the catering tent! They cooked Beef and Stilton Burgers, Honey glazed Chicken Skewers, Haloumi and Vegetable Kebabs and Lamb Koftes, served with a selection of potatoes and salads. Delicious!

Luke & Helen’s family and friends were lovely fun people, they partied from the start and drank hard from the bar, which was never less than 3 deep all evening! Well done to Ian, Rosie and Joel who kept it under control!

The rain didn’t stop, but no one cared, great night had by all, a pleasure for us to be involved. At least we only got wet from the rain this week, last week Ian insisted on showering under the beer keg!!

Another 48hrs @ Kingfisher! (Part 2)

Saturday – a few hours sleep for the team, vans unpacked and re loaded, kitchen team prepped hard again and we made our way to the beautiful Brook Farm in Cuffley for Maire & Steph’s civil ceremony in Tipis in the warm afternoon sunshine. beautiful location, with the sun setting over the lake, couldn’t of wished for better.

The girls kicked off the occasion with a Batala, drumming band, both girls took part, it was a fantastic sound and very noisy, set the pace for the day! The dinned on bowl food cooked by our fans chefs Dan and John, (pics to follow) of Chorizo and Monkfish Kebabs with Saffron Crushed New Potatoes; Rib of Beef, Skinny Chips, Béarnaise; Marinated Lamb Leg, Greek Salad, Tzatziki and Smoked Ratatouille finished with Goats Cheese. Yum yum!
Followed by sweet canapés, marshmallows toasted over the open fires and vodka jelly shots. The DJ was great, had the floor and the woods rocking till gone 2am, we even had a boogie behind the bar! Not that it takes much to get us in the spirit of the day!
So good weekend all round, now tidying up and getting ready for next weekend! Well done team, you were all fabulous as always, we appreciate it so much!

Another 48hrs @ Kingfisher! (Part 1)

So a very busy weekend for the KF team with 2 weddings on Friday and 1 on Saturday! Well done everyone involved many did a double shift, Dan, Phil & Ian worked till the birds started to tweet both mornings!

So Friday saw Becca’s team at Tolmers Park Farm for Melanie & Tris’s wedding, BBQ followed by a very busy bar for 180 guests, record number of jaeger bombs drunk, with 14 bottles emptied, sure there were some sore heads in the morning!

My team were at the beautiful Sandridgebury Farm in St Albans for Martin & Karen’s wedding. Marquee was provided by Deckerdence, a double decker bar bus! Looked superb, with a cocktail bar on top deck! Main course was beef carved at the tables by a nominated guest, always one to bring on laughs with door steps of beef being handed out!

Dancing and drinking till the early hours for both parties, success all round!

CAE Corporate Summer Ball

So Friday night was a different event for the KF team with a summer ball at Shendish House for CAE. This is the 3rd year we have catered this event for them and as always it went without a hitch. Kitchen team served a beautiful 3 course dinner which was well received, even managing to feed the extra six vegetarians and the cocktail bar staff! The drinks flowed and they partied hard until the early hours, the bar was constantly busy, well done to Ian and Joel who served hundreds of drinks with smiley faces! This little line up seemed a popular choice, blue WKD, jager bomb, followed by a sambuca shot! Bet there were some sore heads in the morning! Thanks CAE, see you next year!
