Marquee Magic: Let the Stars Be Your Canopy
Picture this: a warm summer evening, twinkling fairy lights, and a stunning marquee in a picturesque garden. Marquee weddings are the epitome of elegance and romance, allowing you to create your own magical world. You have the freedom to design the space just the way you want it, from extravagant floral arrangements to luxurious lounges for your guests to enjoy. With our expert catering team at your side, we’ll ensure every detail in your menu matches the grandeur of your chosen venue.
Make a statement with unique lighting fixtures that transform the marquee into a magical space. Consider hanging chandeliers, cascading fairy lights, or Moroccan lanterns from the ceiling for a romantic glow. Opt for wooden accents, such as rustic farm tables or wooden chairs, to bring warmth and earthiness to the space.
Country Manor Charm: Romance in the Heart of Nature
For those seeking a quintessentially English wedding, look no further than the allure of a charming country manor. These stately venues offer idyllic surroundings, breathtaking views, and a touch of history to make your special day unforgettable. Imagine exchanging vows amidst manicured gardens or celebrating your reception in a grand hall adorned with chandeliers. Plus, our catering team will curate a menu that perfectly complements the elegance of your chosen manor, ensuring your guests are treated to a feast fit for royalty.
Adorn your country manor wedding with abundant blooms that evoke a sense of romance and natural beauty. Opt for lush floral arrangements featuring soft pastel hues, incorporating flowers like roses, peonies, hydrangeas, and wildflowers. Enhance the ambience with vintage-inspired lighting fixtures like chandeliers or candlesticks to create an intimate and timeless atmosphere.
Rustic Barn Weddings: Where Elegance Meets Country Charm
Imagine exchanging vows in a beautifully restored barn surrounded by rolling hills and blooming fields. Rustic barn weddings have an irresistible allure, blending natural beauty with a touch of elegance. From exposed wooden beams to vintage-inspired decor, every detail exudes warmth and charm. When it comes to food, think farm-to-table delights, grazing tables, woodfired pizzas and delicious comfort food that perfectly complements the countryside ambience.
For barn weddings, embrace the natural surroundings with burlap accents, mason jars filled with wildflowers, and whimsical string lights. Adorn the tables with wooden centrepieces and incorporate vintage touches to complete the rustic charm.
Beach Weddings: Coastal Bliss and Serene Romance
For couples who dream of saying “I do” with the sand between their toes and the sound of crashing waves as their soundtrack, a beach wedding is a coastal bliss dream. You don’t necessarily have to go to Greece to have a beach wedding. The UK coast offers many beautiful destinations that, in the summer, can be a little paradise. Picture a seaside ceremony bathed in golden sunlight, followed by a reception under billowing canopies and twinkling fairy lights. With a coastal setting comes a menu inspired by the sea, featuring fresh seafood delicacies and flavours that transport your guests to an island paradise.
Beach weddings call for driftwood accents and a colour palette inspired by the ocean. Set the scene with flowing fabrics, tropical blooms, and subtle nautical elements to create an atmosphere of serene romance.
Summertime reigns supreme in the world of weddings, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it. Together, we’ll make this summer’s wedding season an EPIC season—filled with laughter, happiness, and good food.
