Wedding Emily & Pete – Saturday 1st September 2018

Emily and Pete were great fun, and a pleasure to deal with from the off.

They chose Gildredge Manor for their ceremony and wedding reception. A fairly small group of 50 and a glorious day this was the perfect place to be. After the ceremony guests enjoyed Prosecco in the garden along with the following four canape from our canape menu:

Thai Fishcakes with Chill Aioli

Mediterranean Vegetable Bruschetta

Thai Crab & Chilli Toasts

Tomato & Parmesan Arancini

When it was time to take seats, the guests made their way upstairs to the Gallery with it’s stunning views over the park and gardens.

Emily & Pete wanted a relaxed menu to reflect themselves and the overall feel of the day. Our BBQ Menu fitted the bill nicely but instead of having it as a buffet, the dishes were taken to the tables for folks to share, which is more popular these days and works well if space in the room is limited.

On Emily & Pete’s menu were:

Chicken Satay Skewers

Green Fig Signature Homemade Burgers with Onion Marmalade

Barbecued Fillet of Salmon with a Salsa Verde

Potato Salad

Pink Coleslaw

Green Leaf Salad

Homemade Bread & Butter

Desserts were platters of the ever-popular Chocolate Brownies, and large sharing bowls of Eton Mess. After dessert guests made their way downstairs for tea, coffee or drinks from the bar.

With a caricaturist setting up after the meal, and later on a DJ, the entertainment was provided in style.

The evening food was Paella, cooked in a huge open pan in the garden everywhere. A great bit of food theatre for the guests, and a really tasty snack served with Bread and Salad.

Such a great couple, we’re so glad that Emily and Pete enjoyed their day, and that we were part of it.
