Yesterday we catered for the lovely Nikki & Stephen at Tudor Oaks Lodge to celebrate their wedding. Tudor Oaks Lodge, owned by Nasia & Kevin; Nikki’s sister and brother-in-law; has now been refurbished to provide a beautiful new wedding venue in Baldock, Hertfordshire. It is a 15th Century Coaching Inn situated around a beautiful Mediterranean courtyard, with a function room that seats up to 200 guests. Being their preferred supplier, working closely with such a lovely family is a pleasure.
The guests arrived to a glass of Prosecco and into the warm, snow was not forecast but fell as they arrived; there is something very romantic about snow falling on your wedding day! Being Greek the bride & groom did their traditional three laps of the room to clapping guests, before taking their seats for the wedding breakfast.
They sat down to traditional Greek olives, breads, houmous and taramasalata, accompanied by wine, beers, vodka & whiskey and soft drinks.
Dan & John created a scrumptious meal consisting of Tomato, Mozzarella & Pesto salad to start; followed by Roasted Chicken Breast, Braised Savoy Cabbage, Roast Potatoes, buttered carrots & brocolli with red wine gravy. Dessert was a dark chocolate brownie stack, vanilla ice cream and hot chocolate sauce. Tea & coffee with mints followed along with slices of wedding cake and fruit platters to complete the meal.
A lovely happy family celebration, that the KF team loved being a part of. A traditional Greek money dance followed then Greek dancing long into the night by all the guests. Opa!
