One of the things that make us love our jobs even more here at The Wild Fork, is receiving great feedback from our past clients. Of course we can tell on the day if our client is having a fantastic time, but it’s always a nice surprise when a letter pops up through our door when we aren’t expecting it, it brightens up our day!
The other day a pretty little autumnal card appeared at The Wild Fork HQ from Katrina and William. Along with a photo full of beaming smiles from their big day, Kat and Will wrote some very kind words.
“To Ed and all at The Wild Fork,
thank you so much for helping us make our day so special. All your organisation and hard work was so impressive and the food was AMAZING! So much so, we did pinch another couple of guests’ desserts!
We have had so many comments on the food. Thank you for everything! Love Kat and Will”
Their wedding was on the 11th of October at Ufton Court, with the ceremony in the rustic Tithe Barn. We served drinks and canapés from a Magnifitents canopy just outside of the barn entrance, allowing the guests to drink and dine on the pretty patio area, surrounded by the well kept garden in the Courtyard. Their canapé menu included Smoked Mackerel Pate on Rye Bread, Rare Roast Beef with Pomme Paille and Béarnaise Sauce, Quail Scotch Eggs with Apple Chutney, Marinated Boccaccini, Basil Pesto and Red Chilli and finally Pressed Foie Gras with Toasted Brioche and Sauternes Jelly.
The guests were then called into the barn for the Wedding Breakfast. For their starter, Kat and Will chose Earl Grey Smoked Duck with Homemade Piccalilli and Bitter Leaf Salad. They had a vegetarian option of Red Onion Tarte Tatin with Caramelised Goat’s Cheese and Pesto Dressing.
The starter was followed by Chump of Berkshire Downs Lamb, served with Dauphinoise Potatoes and Seasonal Roasted Vegetables. The vegetarian main was Spiced Flagelot Bean Stew with Grilled Vegetable Cous Cous. Both options went down a treat!
We then served tea and coffee in the Archer’s Hall where Kat and Will cut their wedding cake. After taking lots of photographs, and sipping lots of tea and coffee, everybody made their way back to the barn for an evening of entertainment and drinks served by our staff at the Tithe Barn Bar.
We are over the moon that Kat and Will had such a lovely time, it’s always great to hear how well our food goes down with everyone on the day. We wish them a bright and happy future together. Merry Christmas to you both, and have a smashing New Year.
