Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary to Zoe & Ludo!

This day last year – 30th March 2019 – was our first wedding of the year at Rothamsted Manor. A year on, our best wishes go out to a lovely couple who we thoroughly enjoyed helping fulfil their perfect day!

It was a day basked in spring sunshine with spring flowers sprouting up all around the stunning grounds. The guests arrived and enjoyed Prosecco and Canapés out on the lawn before moving into the stunning Great Drawing Room for the wedding breakfast. Kerry Ashby and her team @foxglovesandalice decorated the room into a stunning secret garden with magnificent floral displays.

For their wedding breakfast Zoe & Ludo choose a starter of Salad of seared Duck Breast, Pancetta, Pink Grapefruit, Watercress, Honey and Lavender Dressing with Spiced Pear, Apple and Parsnip Soup for the vegetarian option. Main Course was Parmesan Chicken Breast, Seasonal Vegetables, Saute Potatoes, Salsa Verde, Parmesan Crisp and our very popular choice of Roasted Vegetable and Goats Cheese Open Lasagne, Herb Salad, Hazelnut Pesto for the vegetarians. A trio of desserts followed of Sticky Toffee, Salted Caramel Sauce; Eton Mess, Blossom Honey, Strawberry Shortcake and Raspberry and Caramelised Pistachio Brûlée. Tea, coffee and mints completed the delicious meal.

The evening entertainment was provided by manhattens@fixthemusic and our great bar staff ran the Kingfisher Bar! Delicious wedding cake by @emilyjanecakes and bacon and sausage baps cooked by John kept the crowd going till late in the night! A fantastic wedding to start the 2019 season, a slightly different start to 2020!

Zoe & Ludo enjoy your 1st Wedding Anniversary and thank you for letting us be part of your special day!

Want a great way to heighten your day?

Try this! . . .  Nominate a guest from each table to be your carver, hide an apron and chefs hat under their seat then announce just before main course for everyone to check! Then we take them to the kitchen to collect the joint and knife! Great fun watching the carving pros and less experienced slice for each guest on their table!

We offer the following carvery meats to choose from:

Sirloin of beef, homemade yorkies, horseradish cream

Marinated lamb leg, fresh mint sauce

Loin of pork, crackling, roasted apple

Also choose one potato dish and three salads/vegetables to accompany this.

Which Trio would you choose?

Our delicious desserts can be served as a trio. This means you get 3 desserts instead of 1! It has the ‘wow’ factor that your guests will love, giving them the option to swap if they don’t like one! This never happens, everyone is very territorial over their trio!!

So which 3 will you choose? Here are some of the popular choices from our menus.

Sticky toffee, salted caramel

Eton mess, blackberries, lemon shortbread

Dark chocolate torte, vanilla cream, caramelized banana

Bakewell tart, rhubarb and custard

Seasonal fruit granola crumble tartlet, crème anglaise

Vanilla crème brulee, biscotti

Chocolate and orange pot, ginger bread

Banoffee sundae

Pear and almond tart, custard cream

Steamed treacle pudding
