On the last sunny day in September 2014 we catered for the wedding of Shane and Louise Martin at Larchfield Estate. Louise and Shane came to us looking for a wedding reception menu that would satisfy their wide variety of guests and their dietary needs. Louise herself has Celiac Disease and many of her guests were either gluten free or vegetarian. Apart from dietary needs, Shane and Louise knew their guests had very varied tastes.
We created a menu for Shane and Louise by asking them a series of questions about what they like to eat and what they envisaged for the food at their wedding. To make sure their vegetarian guests were not served food too different from their meat eating co-diners Louise and Shane offered a vegetarian starter as well as a main course in which the meat could be easily substituted for fish.
Potato & Leek soup with fresh baked bread and herb butters
Chicken breast wrapped in Parma ham with sun blushed tomato and basil stuffing
Vegetarian Option: Pan Fried hake
Baileys & White Chocolate Mousse in a dark Chocolate cup with a Raspberry & Pine Nut Cookie and Ice Cream
Tea Coffee and Cake
Louise and Shane also required canapés for their Prosecco reception and also party food for their evening reception. We served Chinese Chicken with Noodles and Fish & Chip Pokes to their 150 guests. Louise had prepared individual boxes of treats as wedding favours for each guest. Inside the boxes were sweetie mix ups and kinder eggs to match how Shane had proposed to Louise - by hiding the engagement ring inside a Kinder Egg!
Larch field Estate is a beautiful venue for a wedding and Louise enlisted the help of Blue Moon Event Catering to decorate the main barn where the reception was held. Louise's mum created the flower arrangements for the centre pieces and Louise and her bridesmaid painted orange photo frames to display the table names. We arrived the day before the wedding to set the room up, create the table settings ready for the guests the next day!
