the order of the day

Well, what can we say. Freya and Charlie you know how to throw a party!!

We started out the day with Drinks and Canapes in the stunning Reception Marquee! Whilst Pimms, Prosecco and Beer was handed out we started with Canapes!

Freya and Charlie chose lots of canapes instead of a starter – which is a fantastic idea!

~ Calamari with Aioli
~ Honeyed Sausages
~ Prawns on the Lawn – Toasted Sourdough with Avocado, Chilli and Coriander
~ Spinach & Feta Filo Parcels
~ Caramelised Onion & Goats Cheese Tarte Tatin
~ Mini Hamburgers with Tomato Relish

After Drinks and canapes finished it was time for all the guests to make their way into the marquee ready for the first speech of the day – The Father of the Bride!

Once all the guests were seated the best Man announced in the Bridesmaids, the Ushers and finally the Bride and Groom and everyone had a dance to welcome them in!

After the first speech it was time for the Wedding Breakfast!
Freya and Charlie chose a sharing main course which is one of our favourites!

Once the meal was finished it was time for the band to start and the dancing to begin! Once evening guests arrived it was time for evening food – Pizza and Fish & Chips
