The 3rd August, in the sunny town of Ingatestone, was the wedding of Andrew and Hayley, set in the grand grounds of Ingatestone hall; it was the perfect setting for a perfect wedding!
The marquee was dressed up in a cute modern vintage way, with a colour theme of yellow. Each table was named after a classic novel with a stack of old looking books in the middle. See the pictures below to get a real feel of what the theme was like!
As the clock struck 3:30, the bride and groom arrived in a classic vintage car, Bigday greeted the happy couple with a glass of bubbles each. They arrived early to take a sneak peak in the marquee to see the finished product and have a few pictures taken before the guests arrived.
100 guests started spilling in through the grand entrance and up the pebble stone path to be greeted by Bigday with bubbles, bottled beer or a grape sparkling juice drink – all very refreshing drinks that went down well with the guests in the summer sun.
Bigday then came out with the canapé selection which included
- Mini Fish and Chips
- Prawn and Chorizo Skewers
- Brie and Mango Chutney Parcels
- Halloumi with Red Onion Jam and Cherry Tomatoes
The guests absolutely loved the selection of canapés and complimented us on not only how they tasted but how they were presented too!
Guests filed into the marquee after congratulating the newlyweds, and they then had to find the key to their seat which made finding your seat a bit more fun!
Everyone eagerly awaited the main course to come out which was Hog Roast sharing platters – fantastic idea! Each table got 2 platters of pork from the hog roast with perfect crispy crackling and stuffing, accompanied with a fresh mixed salad, Mediterrean vegetables, Homemade Coleslaw, Roasted New Potatoes, Apple Sauce and a basket of bread rolls.
Vegetarians had a Roasted Pepper stuffed with Mediterrean vegetables and goats cheese.
Onto desserts now, which was a trio; this consisted of a yellow macaroon, profiterole bianco and a vanilla panna cotte with a raspberry coulis on top. A trio is great if you can’t decide on just one dessert!
As desserts were served, Bigday also served tea and coffee and poured the toast drinks in preparation for the speeches.
After the speeches the party began as the free bar opened which Bigday supplied and staffed to serve the couples drinks. Including the couple’s cocktails of a Cosmopolitan and Jamaretto!
With the dance floor conveniently located next to the bar, all the guests danced the night away to the DJ and Bigday had a little sing a long too!
We had a fantastic time catering for Hayley and Andrews wedding and wish them all the best in their future together.
