Last wedding of the season

On Saturday we had our last wedding of a very busy season at Bucks Railway Centre. A lovely couple Tanya & Nick embraced the old railway setting and complimented it with lots of old fashioned themed accessories, from macrame walls, to dip dyed table cloths! it was a striking setting!

After the ceremony on the platform they had Prosecco and beers from the “Bubbly Bar’ accompanied by KF canapés, followed by a train ride and ice cream!

Moving into dinner they chose a 3 course of Roasted field mushroom, toasted olive croute, crispy pancetta, pea shoots and garlic aioli to start, followed by Sirloin of Beef, blue cheese dauphinoise, seasonal veg and red wine jus. Desert can a trio made up of Passion fruit posset, Pimms, strawberry and mint trifle and a chocolate brownie sundae. Coffee and homemade petit fours complete the delicious feast.

A great band with lots of dancing  and drinks from our bar made for a great party! A fantastic day had by all and a great end to our wedding season! Now to start organising Christmas!!

Great feedback!

On Saturday we catered our last wedding of the year at Lodge Farm. With the season now coming to a close it’s great to receive great feedback on a Monday morning! Well done team!

“Morning Dan,

Quick email to say a massive thank you. The food was amazing on Saturday, everything ran like clockwork, our guests were full and complimented the food from start to finish.  The waiting staff were also incredible. Thank you for everything in the lead up to our wedding as well (sorry for our trillion emails and probably very annoying questions!).

It was the most amazing day and your team were a huge part of that.

Jade & Luke”

First wedding for us at this beautiful location last weekend. We looked after Chris & Claudia who celebrated their wedding day here with friends and family, many who had flown in from Italy especially.
