What is your most memorable wedding?
This is a tough one as we have done so many cool weddings. Most recently was probably Zitlali and David's wedding which was held at Winton House and was a three day extravaganza. The wedding was in May and had a garden party theme. The weather was really bad either side of the wedding day but on the day the sun came out and it was glorious!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Beautiful, Bespoke, Local, Seasonal, Delicious
What about your business are you most proud of?
The amazing food and service we provide coupled with our ethical and sustainable approach to doing business.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Choose the right suppliers.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Antipasti boards with the guests names branded on each.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We like to get to know our brides and grooms and really get an understanding of their requirements and what they are trying to achieve. Most weddings we do involve several meetings and at least one tasting and the correspondence can sometime run into a hundred or more emails. We like to make sure that everything is perfect from the first call to the post wedding follow up.
How would you wow the Judges on Masterchef?
Working in a clean and organised fashion and displaying a knowledge of classic and modern technique. Simple is often beautiful if its executed to perfection.
What is the most innovative dish you have created for a wedding?
We do so many bespoke menus its hard to choose. I think refining classic curry flavours into a fine dining dish or turning a classic fast food dish it to fine dining is always a challenge.
What is the food of love?
Oysters of course!
What is your secret ingredient?
