Barcombe Village Hall Wedding

Kate and Andrew tied the knot in Lewes before making their way with their 85 guests to Barcombe Village Hall.

This was our first time catering at Barcombe Village Hall. Having gone over to do a site visit last year when Kate and Andrew first made their enquiry to Green Fig for their wedding catering, I was really impressed. Not only is it in a lovely location, but it has a fully functional kitchen, plenty of space, and ample parking. But it’s certainly the view that make this hall stand out from the crowd. With the hall being made of sustainable materials, the floor to ceiling glass panels afford views across the countryside towards Ashdown Forest and beyond.

Kate and Andrew made the most of the natural feel of the predominantly wood structure and decorated the tables with moss runners and subtle flowers in gin bottles. The overall effect was really beautiful.

On arrival the wedding party were greeted with arrival drinks, which were served in the adjoining marquee that Kate and Andrew had arranged. Adding a marquee can double the space and create a different zone, whether it be for drinks, or a band later on – avoiding the need to move any tables and chairs after the meal.

To accompany the drinks the guests were served canape by our waiting staff. These included goats cheese & walnut bites, crispy filo tartlets with pesto cream cheese & sundried tomato, Thai fish cakes topped with chilli aioli, homemade cheeseburger in a sesame bun, quails Scotch eggs & sundried tomato & parmesan arancini.

Kate and Andrew chose a simple but satisfying wedding breakfast of good old sausage and mash with gravy from our standard traditional menu. But not just any old sausages – the Battle Banger no less (as advocated by Gordon Ramsay himself when he visited our home town). The vegetarians enjoyed a filo basket filled with a wild mushroom & spinach ragout, served with a root vegetable mash. All were served with carrots, green beans & tender stem broccoli, so they even got some of their ‘five a day’ in, which is just as well as for dessert was a trio consisting of banoffee pie, zesty lemon pot, and our really chocolatey brownies.

Tea and coffee was served as a coffee station so folks could get up and help themselves, and the bar was in full swing after the meal for those who wanted to hit the hard stuff. Instead of a traditional cake Kate and Andrew opted for the popular cheese tower which they used as their evening food. They took care of this themselves which obviously kept staff costs down, and meant that we had a Saturday night off, which is like gold dust!

A fabulous day all round. We thoroughly enjoyed our first, and hopefully not our last outing to Barcombe Village Hall, and Kate and Andrew were a delight to cater for.
