Weddings: The Farmers Daughter June 10th 2012

We’ve just received a lovely thank you letter form the Mother of a recent Bride. We did the Marquee wedding with Best Intent just outside of Melrose on the family’s farm, overlooked by the picturesque Eildon Hills. I thought I would just paraphrase some of the Mother of the Brides kind words, it’s thanks like this make our job so rewarding! We’re very lucky to be part of such intimate and special family occasions:
…just a wee note to say how outstanding your service was on the day of Judith & Andrew’s wedding. A guest form Kent is still drooling over the beef you cooked!! … Again my thanks, all the best for the remainder of the Summer.
We provided a champagne and canapé reception on the lawn which was serenaded by the St Boswells Concert Band. The location was fantastic as this little bit of video will show (please excuse my amateurish shaky filming!)

The table settings were quite traditional and combined with the champagne bar, cocktail bar and the exquisite floristry  the marquee interior was just the right mix of celebratory exuberance and formal style.

We served a choice of two starters, Fresh Italian Figs, Parma Ham & Rocket with Parmesan Shavings or alternatively, Seared Scallops on Black Pudding with Greek Cress Frills and a Sour Cream & Chive dressing.

The main course was Roast Sirloin of Beef Carved at the table with all the trimmings – a big favorite with the men and ladies alike! For pudding we served delicious Fresh Berries set in a Prosecco Jelly with a Creamed Meringue on the side. The Wedding Cake looked amazing too. We used the bottom and middle tier to serve with coffee & peppermint tea. Later we set up a buffet of Cheeses and Sweets – a “Munchie Table” if you will – it helps soak up all the drink and keep the dancers energised!

As the night continued and the guests partied into the wee small hours the Cocktail bar was inundated serving an unending flow of Mojitos, Martinis, Juleps, Daiquiris along with lagers, beers and regular spirits.

The menu and services we were asked to provide are typical of the food, drink, dressing and special touches we can supply.
