We were very proud of our latest wedding where we provided afternoon tea for 80 guests at 2pm. There was a selection of four different sandwiches each on white and brown bread, followed by scones with homemade strawberry jam. To top it all off there was a selection of six different cakes and biscuits displayed on three tiered cake stands. It was extremely satisfying to put the cake stands down on the tables and hear the exclamations usually beginning with 'Meringues! My favourite, oh but there's Millionaires shortbread, oh and chocolate brownies, oh no I don't know which to choose!'
We finished serving the afternoon tea by 4pm and then started to clear away and set up for the evening. At 8pm we served spit roasted lamb and chickens with two salads, tzatziki, fresh bread, olives and mint sauce. In the evening there were 150 guests but there was plenty of food for all.We didn't leave the site until 1am, but the party was still going with a swing!
We were exhausted, but left feeling very happy because we knew that the bride and groom had had exactly the day that they had wanted.
