A Beautiful Orchard Wedding

September 10, 2012

On Saturday we catered for a beautiful, unusual wedding in Nantwich for a fantastic couple, Hannah and Andy.

Hannah and Andy chose to hold their ceremony in their own family orchard before dining in a fabulous marquee, provided by Purple Rain Weddings.

The weather was absolutely perfect! warm and gloriously sunny without being too hot. The ceremony was laid back and relaxed with an elegant, country feel.

After the ceremony, we served a selection of canapes so guests could chat and enjoy the gorgeous weather and lovely surroundings. Later, a relaxed sit down meal was served ‘family style’ from large bowls placed centrally on the tables. Lucky guests were able to help themselves to-

12 hour braised shin of beef in red wine with roasted root vegetables
Chicken roasted with and wild mushroom and white wine sauce
and Sweet potato and aubergine gratin in a tomato fondu

All served with a panache of seasonal vegetables with Maldon sea salt and cracked black pepper and crushed new potatoes with herbs and spring onions.

For dessert we served hand made individual apple crumble using apples from the very same orchard where the service was held. What a lovely, personal touch!

Evening guests were treated to a Staffordshire Hog roasted on the spit for over 6 hours, with natural pork jus, handmade apple sauce and a sage & roast onion stuffing.

A fantastic day was had by all and we thoroughly enjoyed being a part of it.
