August 2nd already! This season is flying past with us adding more and more great celebrations and weddings to our ever increasing portfolio! Saturday was again a day never to be forgotten.
My team and I made our way to the beautiful Lavender Farm nr Hitchin for Lucy & Kevin’s wedding, a lovely family who we have met on numerous occasions over the past few years, in fact we fist met them at Lavender Farm when we had an open day with Tipis for hire! The Lavender was in full bloom giving a stunning purple backdrop across the fields, it made the site seem so romantic and special.
Lucy & Kevin arrived with their son Jack to their guests toasting them with Pimms, they were a lively crowd keeping our bar staff busy even before the meal!
They feasted on a starter of Confit Lamb Shoulder Croquette, warm vegetable salad & mint dressing.
Followed by our signature Kingfisher BBQ consisting of Beef & Stilton Burger, Summer Herb & Lemon Chicken Skewers, Peppered Rib Eye Steaks and Salmon, Monkfish & Prawn Skewer; all served with bowls & salads, cooked to perfection by John and MJ.
Lucy & Kevin partied hard, so did all of their guests, the bar was 3 deep most of the evening, even I danced with Dad! Great day had by all, so pleased for us to be part of such a special couples day!
Team 2 with the lovely Ian, were back at the Holly Bush In St Albans for Laura & James’s wedding. The couple had been traveling for 6 months to exotic places like Cambodia, Australia, The Galápagos Islands and Brazil. They used these very personnel places to aptly name their tables in the marquee.
Everyone looked stunning, the bride was complimented by a stunning array of bridesmaids dressed in soft green long flowing dresses. Canapés, Prosseco and freshly made jugs of Pimms greeted the wedding guests on arrival. from the lovely Vanessa & Steve. Although a brief down pour whilst the BBQ was being cooked it didn’t dampen proceedings, just the chefs got slighty wet! As always, it was a massive hit with all guests. Jeager bombs and drinks a plenty were flowering from the pubs doors, allowing guests to relax in the evening sunshine, another great day had by everyone.
