First Wedding of the season – Lorraine & Richard

The hall was decorated in a simple but beautiful way – ideal for the county setting. With tressle tables and no set seating plan it was a very relaxed affair, reflecting the bride and groom perfectly. The ‘cake’ made of three rounds of Sussex Cheese stood proudly in the room.

On return from the church the guests were welcomed with a chilled glass of Prosecco or tea, coffee and a huge selection of home-made cakes (made by Lorraine’s family and friends).

Served with Persian Rice Salad, Home-made Coleslaw, Greek Salad and hot New Potatoes it was a winning combination. The family service was great for keeping it simple and relaxed, and with waitresses topping up, nobody went hungry.

To follow, we set up a dessert table so that everyone could choose from Summer Berry Pavlova, Lemon Cheesecake or Chocolate Brownies…or in most cases all three! With plenty to go around, many came up for seconds and thirds!

Later on, for the evening guests and those who had worked up an appetite on the dance floor, there was a Sussex Cheese Board, which was basically the Wedding Cake de-constructed. This is a great option for those who don’t think a traditional cake is necessary and it looks stunning.

Everyone had a great day and we wish Lorraine and Richard all the best for their future together.
