We were honoured to be Clare and Philips wedding caterers in August. Philip Hindes MBE is an Olympic Track Cyclist and Clare and her dad Dave are friends with our very own Karen Rhodes and Lucy Rhodes sharing an interest in show jumping. In Daves speech he thanked Lucy for selling her Clare’s dream horse Con.
They had their wedding at Clare’s family home in Carlisle surrounded by corn fields and greenery, beautifully picturesque and captured perfectly by Bridgette Ibbotson.
They were served drinks throughout the day by Kindred Spirits. As the drinks reception was flowing and everyone was having enjoying their Canapés, Clare were surprised with a visit from some furry friends – Alpacas! from Blencogo Farm! She was ecstatic!

After enjoying their Canapés it was time for the guests to be seated in the Sailcloth Marquee from Original Marquees. It had been dressed with bicycle and horse riding decorations. Place names for woman were engraved on a wooden horse tag and the mens were engraved on bicycles. The flowers were subtle and delicate with some being displayed on a tall centrepiece others hanging from the beams, they were put together by Amy Young at Bonny Blooms.
