Going back in time now, to the 18th May 2013, the day that Ali and Ali got married. It was a fantastic day for it too, lovely and sunny.
The wedding reception happened at a local venue called Burloes Hall, located in a remote location in Royston, perfect venue for a perfect wedding!
All the guests arrived at 4pm for a drinks reception held in the gardens of Burloes Hall, which had brilliant views of the countryside! For the drinks reception Ali and Ali had Pimms with lemonade (refreshing!), chilled Prosecco and Elderflower. A selection of canapés were also being bought round – a few of the chefs favourites which you can see in our menus!
After the guests had had photos taken, everyone made their way into the marquee to await their lovely meal which was…
Sharing platters of pate for starters, accompanied by a selection of homemade chutneys and breads, then for mains, Hog Roast sharing platters with all the trimmings, including stuffing, crackling, salads, and apple sauce and stuffing balls! (You can find out more about our platters under the Hog Roast tab) And finally for dessert everyone tucked into Eton Mess served in martini glasses – lovely way to end a lovely meal!
After the meal, prosecco was poured for the speeches and coffee offered around to sip whilst speeches commenced!
Time for the cutting of the cheese cake! Not a cheese cake as you would picture though, oh no, and actual wedding styled cake made from cheese! (See pictures below!) This was cut, and then served as part of the evening buffet which also included pickles, ham hock, crackers and a selection of breads.
Bigday also offered service of their drinks behind a free bar, which went all night next to the dance floor so we could dance along as well!
