Shades of Gold

This weekend we catered for a fantastic wedding at the very beautiful country venue, Heaton House Farm. We certainly seemed to have the Midas touch. One colour kept popping up throughout the day – glorious gold!


Heaton House Farm looked stunning surrounded by a blanket of rich seasonal colours and inside, the venue looked spectacular! From the stylish gold charger plates to the gold trimmed glasses provided by our friends at Whitehouse Crockery, the tables looked the epitome of Autumn style.

Vibrant Bunting at Upper House Hayfield

Each wedding we cater for is different to the last one and that’s one of the things we love about catering at these special occasions.

Upper House

This weekend we were at the idyllic Upper House Hayfield, a former hunting lodge that stands alone on the magnificent mountain of Kinder Scout in the Peak District National Park.

Punch and Judy

The venue housed a vintage wedding last weekend featuring elements from carnivals including a traditional Punch and Judy show.

Upper House Hayfield

There were elements of fun spread throughout the grandiose interior and exteriors of Upper House Hayfield. We were particularly fond of the bold and vibrant coloured bunting covered chandeliers with hanging glass orbs.

Romantic Heart-Themed Wedding at Old Moat Hall

The heart is one of the most recognised symbol for love. When it isn’t overdone, a heart wedding theme can be whimsical, sophisticated and incredibly romantic.

This weekend we catered for a wedding at Old Moat Hall, a beautiful venue in Chelford, Cheshire, that incorporated the heart theme along with some vintage touches.

Heart Themed Guest List

The simple and sweet hearts theme can be infused in details throughout the wedding and reception. This table plan made from caging is shaped like a heart with detailing, the delicate flowers and luggage tags adds a nostalgic rustic touch.

Old Moat Hall

The elegant neutrals of the marquee layout creates a relaxed atmosphere whilst enhancing the romantic elements of the table decoration. The chiavari is a very popular chair style, which are suited to both modern and formal occasions. They add to the vintage feel of the decoration along with the luggage tag place cards and flower and frame centrepieces.

Old Moat Hall

Roses are Red

The weekend’s glorious wedding allowed for an area outside in Old Moat Hall’s beautiful gardens. The heart theme continued throughout the venue with paper heart decorations and lanterns featuring heart shaped cut outs. There was also traditional romantic phrases placed around the venue, including the ‘Roses are Red’ sign hanging from a beautifully blooming tree.

We also spotted this charming poem about how the newlyweds feel about each other:


Would you go for a traditional romantic heart shaped theme for your wedding? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Ciao Bella! A Beautiful Italian Wedding

Last Sunday we catered for a wonderful wedding, held at the beautiful, Heaton House Farm. The styling was so pretty, we loved the birdcage floral table decorations and fantastic mint green birdcage wedding cake!

The lovely couple, Jennie and Tom, are of Italian descent and we experienced some true Italian traditions we had not seen before. We found this quite fascinating! Traditionally, marriages held on a Sunday are considered by the Italians to be the luckiest, so our lovely bride and groom certainly got off on the right footing. Green is also considered to be very lucky, so that gorgeous cake had that one covered.

What we found most intriguing was the reception traditions, over dinner the guests shouted for the Bride and Groom to kiss. Shouts of “Evviva gli sposi” – (“hurray for the newlyweds.”) were toasted regularly and responded to with thundering applause!

It is also traditional for guests to bang glasses with spoons to encourage the Bride and Groom to kiss several times. This was very rowdy, some glasses were broken! The atmosphere was wonderful and everyone seemed to have great fun. We did too! We loved watching it all.

We consider ourselves very lucky that our work allows us to be part of such special occasions. We take great pride in being instrumental in ensuring these happy events run smoothly and that all the guests enjoy something extra special. A huge congratulations to Tom and Jennie, thanks for making us a part of your fantastic day.
