Jessica and Emmanuel chose the beautiful Otham Court, near Hailsham for their Wedding Reception.
Jessica and her family and friends had done a great job of decorating the marquee, which looked stunning with fresh flowers, and continental beer bottles denoted which table people were on…lovely idea, and no doubt reflecting the couples’ favourite tipples.
Located between Stone Cross and Hailsham this is a real hidden gem of a place. The owners live on the premises of this amazing and sprawling venue so choose not to host too many weddings per year, but it really is a beautiful place to hold a wedding.
After the ceremony at St Michaels the guests returned to Otham Court for welcome drinks and canapé on the lawn. Their bite size treats included Teriyaki Chicken Skewers, Oven Roasted King Prawn & Chorizo Skewers, Butternut Squash & Feta Filo Tarts and Thai Crab & Chilli Toasts, all of which seemed to go down very well with the guess. The weather was threatening to rain but luckily it held off until the guests were all sat inside eating their meal.
Jessica and Emmanuel chose a Hog Roast for their Wedding Breakfast, still a very popular choice and always a real crowd pleaser. With the hog roasting away on site since the early hours it was really worth the wait. Guests came to the hog to collect their meat and salads and accompaniments were served to the tables.
These consisted of New Potato Salad, Moroccan Style Cous Cous, Mixed Green Leaf Salad, and Greek Salad and plenty of Bread. For dessert the guests enjoyed Sussex Banoffee Pie and Summer Berry Pavlova, served by our waitresses at a buffet table. There’s always plenty to go around with Green Fig, so seconds are always encouraged!
A truly charming couple, Jessica and Emmanuel were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and we’re so glad we made their day so special. We wish them all the very best!
