a wonderful wedding

I mean, really!!! I needed further proof of my enormous appetite! This was the rather yummy wedding breakfast that we were served at TC’s bro’s nuptials on the weekend. It was all very tasty and at the same time, not too heavy, which meant we had lots of energy to rock out on the dance floor all evening. The very quaffable wine it was all washed down with had been shipped over from Argentina – it was ever so drinkable and not a headache in sight the next day – bonus! It was a fantastic weekend and the happy couple went to great lengths to ensure a super time was had by all. Congratulations J&T and may you have a wonderful future together.

Old Luxters Barn

Old Luxters Barn

Went to a lovely wedding yesterday for my friend DB.  In fact it was one of the loveliest weddings that I’ve ever been to.  It was intimate, friendly and really good fun.  The ceremony took place in Frieth Church – a pretty little village church in Buckinghamshire, and then the reception was 3 miles away, crossing the Bucks/ Oxon border, at Old Luxters Barn, which was set within the grounds of the Chiltern Valley Vineyard.

It always amazes me on the occasions when caterers, can turn out consistently good food when looking after so many people.  The canapes were delicious and included mini fish and chips, wrapped up in a newspaper cone.

For the main event, we had a starter of red mullet, a main of (rare) lamb and a dessert of a strawberry torte (I managed to snaffle a second torte).  The quality of the food was very impressive.

At around 10pm some bacon sandwiches were served, which apparently were very good.  Unfortunately by then, I was far more interested in consuming liquids, so missed out!
