So with holidays and a quietist month for us all in August, September grabs us hard with a Big Bang! With 2 weddings last weekend, we are looking at 3 this weekend, 3 next weekend plus 2 corporate celebrations, followed by another 5 before the month is out. September is proving to be manic, it has been our busiest month so far, and in fact it has been over the last 3 years, what lures this date? The hot Indian Summer we all expect?
So last weekend, a double with our fellow tipis for hire at Brook Farm and Tolmers Park a Farm.
Two lovely family weddings, celebrated in style despite the odd shower and fleeces and Wellies!
Saturday, for Ashley & Gareth at the beautiful Brook Farm, a rustic style menu of canapés, hog roast and a trio of desserts, with our sliders evening food choice of mini burgers and chips. This worked well with their rustic relaxed style of their day. They danced the most I have ever seen at a wedding! The floor was full from first dance till last, what a great band!
Sunday at Tolmers Park Farm for Jaz & Mike, a lovely couple who came back to us after we catered for her brothers wedding 3 years ago; they had their Tipis set in one of their families fields, being sheep farmers with over 1700 sheep, they have plenty of fields! Canapes & Pimms on arrival followed by a sharing board of marinated lamb, garlic & Rosemary roasted new potatoes, accompanied with warm & cold salads, delicious! Naked wedding cake with our legendary chef JV’s coloured meringues, bowls of strawberries, whipped cream & raspberry coulis completed the meal.
Cheese and pie towers and cakes made by friends and family completed the evening food, there was so much, I think it would of lasted them the week!
And now onto this weekend, weddings at Church Farm, Forty Hill Farm and a celebration at Parmiters makes our trio, with a private party in Harpenden on Friday evening for a mere 50 guests.
Busy time for us all, but we are all still smiling and enjoying what we do so much!
