Mike & Kaaleeka had a marquee at the family holiday home and it was just magical.
They had a 2 day celebration, the wedding day followed by a post wedding barbeque for all their family and friends.
The wedding weekend started with this delicious selection of canapés…
Mini Leek & Cheese Tartlets
Blinis with Crème Fraîche & Smoked Salmon
Peking Duck Pancakes with Plum Sauce
Thai Fish Cakes with Chilli Dipping Sauce
Honey & Mustard Sausages with Mustard Dip
Vegan Moroccan Cauliflower Bites
Vegan Crostini with Avocado, Sun Blush Tomato & Basil
Following drink and canapés guests too their seats for a Middle Eastern Sharing menu!

Hummus, Tzatziki, Olives, Falafel, Pesto & Mozzarella Arancini, Spinach & Feta Parcels Selection of Breads, Pitta & Flatbread
Sharing Boards of:

Marinated Courgette and Halloumi Kebabs with Mint & Lemon
Harissa Aubergine Strudel with Olives & Sun Blush Tomatoes (vegan option)
Roasted Baby Potatoes with Rosemary & Garlic
Sprouting Broccoli & Wild Garlic with Whole Grain Mustard Dressing and Carraway Seeds.
Istanbul Salad with Feta, Olives, Tomatoes & Coriander

This works so well being sharing as guests can have as much or as little of each element as they like! Please bear in mind that sharing meals take a lot of space so don’t fill your table with loads of flowers or candles as these will be covered of moved during service which would be a massive shame!
In the evening it was time for Newspaper Cones of Chips and Cheese Toasties! This was FAB!! Guests could still enjoy their evening while we walked round offering chips or toasties so they could carry on partying!
Walk around evening food is (in our opinion!) the best way to do it. Guests don’t have to queue and food is brought right to them. We have had the odd occasion where our girls end up in the middle of the dance floor but they weren’t complaining!!
Saturday 18th June – Post Wedding BBQ
Mike & Kaaleekaa chose to have a post wedding party to invite all their friends and family back for a post wedding catch up to tell all the funny stories from the evening before.
We think a pre or post wedding do is a great idea as the wedding day itself goes so fast so sometimes people don’t have chance to properly speak to everyone.
Marinated Chicken Kebabs
Higginson’s Beef Burgers
King Prawns with Chilli & Garlic
Sweet Potato, Fig & Chilli Salad
Roasted Spanish Onions, Rocket & Parmesan Salad Heritage Tomato, Pomegranate & Basil Salad Lightly Dressed Green Salad
Baskets of Home-made Breads
Strawberries & Cream
This was served buffet style and guests came up as and when they were ready. It creates a really relaxed atmosphere and really did finish off the weekend perfectly!
