Saturday we catered for Ellen & Ben’s wedding in The Great Barn in Ruislip. A beautiful Grade 2 listed building that is over 700 years old. The ceremony took place first and with a quick turn around from the Kingfisher staff, we transformed the room into a beautiful breakfast room, complete with lights, flowers and set tables. Canapés and Prosecco was served in the gardens, luckily the rain held off long enough for the guests to enjoy this part outside, and lucky for us as we had so much to do inside!
Starters of Ham Hock Terrine, mini cheese scones, candied apple purée, sea salt crackling or marinated vegetable & mozzarella timbale, Parmesan shavings, rocket leaves, raspberry balsamic syrup were served to the guests followed by Ellen’s a Dad’s very touching speech.
Onto main course, this smelt delicious! Sirloin of beef, blue cheese dauphinoise, green beans, red wine jus or caramelised onion & gruyere tartlet, baby vegetable ratatouille. All plates returned empty!
Grooms very funny speech followed then we served sticky toffee pudding with salted toffee sauce and custard for pudding. After coffee I didn’t think the best man could do a better speech but with video and props he had the whole room in stitches!
Dancing and drinking followed, a lovely couple and family, we thoroughly enjoyed looking after them for their day.
The wedding season is slowing now although we still have 5 more couples to cater for. Weddings aren’t just for summer anymore! And with the warm autumnal sunshine on Saturday I can understand why!
Last pic of Saturday! My great staff with of course our fantastic head chef John! Couldn’t work with a better bunch! Love you guys!
We are looking forward to show casing some canapés and finger foods tomorrow at the beautiful Lavender Farm near Hitchin at the Tipis 4 Hire open weekend!
We have enjoyed working with Tipis this summer and in previous years, it is such a great space to celebrate your wedding reception. Here’s at shot of Ben & Emilys day from a few weeks ago.
Hopefully we will meet some of our new couples for 2015 tomorrow! Exciting!
