Hatty and Rory

Hatty and Rory had weekend full of love!

Their weekend started with their closest friends and family joining them at the breathtaking venue that is Holesfoot, nestled in the Eden Valley it comes with so much natural beauty. Adding to that beauty is an incredible Main House that sleeps 22 guests in 9 rooms and there is the surrounding accommodation that include Cottages to Glamping Tents. The venue sleeps a total of 50 guests also having the venue for a minimum of 3 days helps to create memories with all your closest friends and family.

Hatty and Rory had us join them on the Friday to serve Canapés and a Two Course meal for everyone staying with them. This was a well deserved treat for everyone after they had spent the day creating ALL the wedding flowers including an incredible display on the Entrance Pillars of the house.

The atmosphere of this meal was just electric and a small introduction to the Wedding Day to follow. The drinks were flowing the music filled the air and the love was everywhere.

Wedding Day 

The morning started with everyone getting ready at Holesfoot hoping the typical British Weather held off and for important reason … Hatty and Rory were getting married outside in the Italian Garden Terrace. Hatty and her sisters had created the most incredible flower displays that lined the aisle and were complimented by the tulips that Liv from Holesfoot had planted around the venue.

Getting married in the Italian Garden Terrace is incredibly special, with bench seating for all your guests to witness the most romantic wedding entrance, the Bride will start her walk hidden away from everyone and then come into site under a wild flower arch. The isle has an old fountain in the middle creating character and ending at the top of the aisle there is a higher level for the couple to stand and do their vows. Just Beautiful.

Everyone made their way back towards the barn for the Drinks Reception and we started serving a fantastic selection of canapés.

Honey and Mustard Sausages with Mustard Mayo

Goats Cheese Arancini with Sun Blushed Tomato Dip

During the canapés Hatty and Rory went around the venue with their photographer Tom McNally who has captured some sensational photos of the couple.

It was soon time to invite everyone into the Barn to start the Speeches. These speeches were so raw and personal but over all hilarious and it was the best way to start the Wedding Breakfast.

After the meal the guests made their way outside whilst the barn got ready for the evening party. They also had Rebecca from Photohoof come with her indoor Photo Booth. Rebecca is an incredible addition to have at your wedding, the Photo Booth is staffed to help with poses and then 2 strips of photos are printed  1 to keep and 1 to stick in a ‘guest book’ for the bride and groom to look back through.

Hatty and Rory provided a selection of their favourite cheeses, we put this out for them on a table in the main barn so people could help themselves throughout the night. We also cut up and served their 4 tiered wedding cake that had been made by Hatty herself!

Once the Band – Cross Keys – were ready the wedding party filled the dance floor and it stayed full throughout their sets. After the first set of songs were done we were ready to serve their pizzas. This is the perfect time to start evening food because everyone made their way outside for some fresh air and needed to refuel before the next set started.

Evening Food – Street Food Van
