It’s never too late to call the caterers, a last minute party or celebration, been let down by a venue or another caterer?
We received a call from a couple planning a last minute wedding reception, we’re not totally sure if it was last minute on their part but with only two weeks notice ahead of the wedding day it was certainly a little last minute from our point of view! To add to this, the couple were based abroad and had hired a venue, namely finsbury town hall as a central location for all guests.
With only two weeks to pull this together, we first needed to take a look at the venue and more importantly the kitchen. Kitchen space will often determine what menu is possible given the facilities available. Absolutely no point gearing up to a three course menu for a wedding if the kitchen can’t accommodate.
Kitchen inspected and venue viewed courtesy of the event manager, we then provided a few sample menus we the clients budget in mind.
Duck and chicken liver parfait with toasted brioche & balsamic onion chutney to start with, followed by a classic roast beef dinner with homemade yorkies and chateux potatoes. For dessert the client opted to serve up the wedding cake which we duly helped tp plate up and present with a plum compote.
112 guests made the trip from as far away as norway & argentina and helped make the day special.
Planning A last minute party or celebration, it’s always worth calling the caterers, it was slightly lucky we were available but as the wedding was in January a relatively quiet month we had two chefs available and could help cater the wedding.
Best wishes and congratulations to you both, dave and the team at catered-events
