Jonathan and Becca arrived in style to their Wedding Reception at Well Barn Shoot Lodge. From the morning, their photographer Shannon Robinson from SLR Photography began snapping away, and to our delight she has very kindly supplied us with her beautiful images, allowing us to document the day with fantastic imagery.
Quails Scotch Egg and Apple Chutney, Rare Beef and Yorkshire Pudding with Creamed Horseradish, Cucumber and Salmon Tartar, Sweet Potato Fritters with Black Pudding and Pea Puree and Devilled Crab on Chicory were their chosen canapés, full of bright colours and flavours.
After the reception on the gloriously sunny lawn, complete with views of rolling hills, the guests made their way into the marquee. The marquee was dressed with Pretty Pieces Perfect Days’ twee vintage crockery and cutlery and blooms from Jo’s Wise.
Each place setting was complete with a unique vintage plate, mismatched ornate cutlery and a ditsy floral teacup and saucer. We loved how each plate and teacup was completely different, contrasting in some places and complimenting in others. Napkins were placed on top of each plate, with a bright yellow ribbon tied with a rustic place name card.
The Suckling Pigs took centre stage, holding apples in their mouths, rested on a bed of fragrant herbs and watercress. These were carved onto platters, allowing guests to help themselves to juicy meat and crisp and crunchy crackling. Venison Lolipops on Liquorice Sticks and Whole Dressed Salmon were also on the menu, giving a wide array of delights to choose from.
DIY Eton Mess was among the selection for the dessert table.
Complete with a dollop of cream and a swirl of Strawberry Compote, everyone’s plates were full to the point of overflow! So, naturally, it was time for seconds again, time for round two, where guests could pile their plates once again but this time with Apple Tart Fine and Little Vanilla Doughnuts!
The ‘cheese cake’ joined a selection of others on rustic wooden boards, with grapes and figs as the final course of the Wedding Breakfast. Jonathan and Rebecca chose Vacherin, Cerne Abbas, Cheshire and Barkham Blue cheese for their boards. After this, the guests, suitably stuffed, made their way into the barn for lots of dancing.
What a beautiful wedding. We were over the moon that we could be a part of Jonathan and Becca’s big day, and we’re so thankful to Shannon Robinson at SLR Photography for her amazing photographs of our food throughout the day. We wish the happy couple all the best for the future.
