A Summer of Weddings

A Summer of Weddings

Last year we were lucky enough to cater for a wide variety of beautiful weddings in some of London's most iconic . From weddings for 250 guests at the Natural History Museum to 85 guests in the Guildhall Crypts. 

One of our favourites was Marina and Mathias, who dined under Hope the Whale at the Natural History Museum. It was clear from the start food was going to be a big part of the day and we spent a great deal of time perfecting the menu. We created an around the world food station menu for them incorporating all the places that told the story of this wonderful couple, these included; Malaysia, Hong Kong and of course a British Roast!

Another showstopping wedding from 2017 was Kate and Joe's. It was clear when we first met Kate and Joe they had a clear vision for their day, including both an intimate family lunch and an Ibiza chic party with all their friends in the evening and they really could have it all in the beautiful surroundings of Chiswick House and Gardens. After beginning in Chiswick House with their close friends and family Kate and Joe moved the party into the Burlington Pavilion where a further 150 guests joined for an evening of entertainment and cocktails. We served a classic 3 course seated lunch in the afternoon followed by a selection of canapés and bowl food items for the evening. 

It's safe to say that 2017 was truly a wonderful year for weddings. To give you an idea, here is a snapshot of some of our favourite images:

This Summer is set to be our busiest for weddings ever, with 18 weddings currently confirmed! We are lucky enough to be helping these couples create there perfect day in private marquees, palaces, museums and homes. 

Here are some the hottest 2018 wedding trends we are coming across:

  • Understated elegance, although we are finding couples are being more budget conscious they are ensuring their budget is being spent in the right places to have the biggest impacts on their day.
  • Personalising the big day has become popular, from customised napkins to monograms on the dance floor you really can add your own touch anywhere.
  • With most couples growing up in the world of Pinterest and Instagram, everyone wants their day to be photo ready. From table settings to the presentation of canapes and the seated meal it has become more important than ever to make all aspects of the day photogenic.   
  • Pantone colour of 2018 – Ultra Violet
  • Interactive dessert stations are still popular with couples
  • Sharing platters remain popular with our wedding couples from antipasti to mezze style boards having something for everyone
  • Cocktails have seen a rise with couples choosing their favourites or creating their own His and Hers for the big day
