Let me take you back a month or two. It was a fairly grey day in July; I was all set to cater a delicious wedding feast for the lovely Emma and Chris. They had their ceremony at a local church before celebrating their marriage at East Bridgford Hill.

With a serious rain storm, 2 very interesting pairs of shoes and more picnic food than you could shake a stick at – it was definitely one of my favourites! All the amazing photos in this blog are courtesy of the exceptionally talented wedding Photographer, John Barwood

They had a marquee in the grounds of the house and had taken over one of the amazingly quirky rooms for their wedding breakfast. We started their banquet with Canapes before serving up a traditional English Picnic made up of the freshest, locally sourced produce, followed by my famous Chocolate Brownies. We had a little downpour in the middle of the day, but they partied on regardless!

Later that night we provided a scrumptious Meat Feast and left them to dance the night away with stomach’s full of culinary delights.

Their Menu U was as follows;



Mini Cheese Burgers

Posh Mini Pizzas with Various Toppings

Sun Blushed Tomato and Mozzerella Aranchini

So what is ‘Menu U’?

I don’t believe in Wedding Catering being categorised into Menus A, B or C – where you are given set menu options to choose from. I think your wedding should be your day – designed entirely around you, your tastes, your venue, your theme and your favourite foods. I don’t offer set menus for couples to choose from. I like to meet with you, have a coffee and discuss what you want from your wedding feast.

East Bridgford Hill provided a stunning venue!


You might want a relaxed, quirky, English picnic feast like Emma and Chris, or a delicious catered BBQ like Adam and Ewelina, or a bespoke three course banquet with canapes where each course is designed entirely by you (with a little help from me!), like Alex and Kirsty!
