Last Friday we had the pleasure of catering for Colette and Karl’s wedding in the lovely Tithe Barn in Ufton Court. The Barn was beautifully decorated and even the sun decided to show its face.
Straight after the ceremony the reception drinks started with soft drinks and bubbles whilst canapés circulated. These snazzy looking canned drinks would look great at a summer wedding in rustic tin buckets filled with ice.
The tables looked lovely, this couple went for a cheerful fuchsia colour for their table theme. Usually couples tend to go for the ivory napkins but we think coloured ones can look really good, it’s great to be creative with your table set up! The flowers were in huge glass vessels in the centre of the tables surrounded by petals.This photo really shows off the lovely timber beams of Ufton Court’s Tithe Barn.
Standing proudly on the way into Tithe Barn was our chef’s masterpiece. Instead of the traditional tiered wedding cake, this couple opted for a croquembouche which looked absolutely delicious! Each bun was filled with creme patissiere and decorated with white chocolate-dipped raspberries and mint.
After a champagne toast the starter was served, breaded pig cheeks with caramelised braeburn apple and frisée salad. The starter was followed by a hearty venison stew with roasted root vegetables.
The poached pear dessert went down a treat, which doesn’t surprise us as it looks delicious! This photo may well make your mouth water.
After the meal the tables were cleared and the bar was open for business. The guests danced away to a live band who performed some really unique covers of well known classics.
