And it Begins…..

The first weddings are merely days away now! During our hectic schedule we have found the time to sit back, realx (for a minute!) and share with you the events we have over this cold Easter weekend.

The first wedding of the year takes place on Easter Sunday at Ufton Court for a lovely couple named Sofie and Dominic. They are having a menu that involves a variety of canapes, sharing platters that include guinea fowl, pork and mushroom rillette, smoked mackerel pate, grilled courgettes and more! This will then be followed by a French onion soup Amuse Bouche, Venison, and a duo dessert of dark chocolate torte and mini lemon custard tart.

Easter Monday then sees an exciting Wedding that will focus on a Sri Lankan themed walking starter that will include Samosas, Dhal Vadai and Kothu Pittu. The breakfast will be just as delicious, featruing chicken breast coated in sesame seed and spiced crust with spicy sauce, and a trio of desserts including chocolate and mint mousse, passion fruit pavlova and lemon tart. Guests arriving in the evening will be treated to an array of homemade curries including Chicken and Sweet Pepper Karahi and Mutton and Sweet Potato. During the evening the guests will have a number of homemade cocktails including Yellow Jacket, Bouquet of Roses and Virgin Passionfruit Mojito. Exciting times!
