We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that 2014 has started well for you. Last year was a very busy and exciting one for us catering for fabulous weddings, special birthday parties, family gatherings and even the launch of a brand new English wine.
This year is already set to be just as eventful. In the last few weeks we’ve met several of the couples who will be getting married in the coming months to discuss the food they’d like featured at their wedding. We’re happy to say that the trend for local and seasonal seems to be continuing strongly!
We’ve been wondering what will be in style for 2014. Last year, naked wedding cakes were all the rage with cheese towers, unusual cocktails, sweet carts and all things vintage still very popular. Recently, we’ve seen marshmallow, in sophisticated flavours such as elderflower champagne or sloe gin, begin to be used as wedding favours. Sequins are tipped to be a massive trend next year, on dresses, decorations, table cloths, as confetti and even on cakes. According to Rachel Griffiths for Bridal Guide in America, films like ‘The Great Gatsby’ last year will have an impact on wedding style for 2014 with couples looking back to the elegance of the 1920s for inspiration. She also suggests that spicy food and dishes specifically designed to be shared at each table will appear on many wedding menus in The States; will this be translated across the pond we wonder?
Traditionally June is the most popular month to marry so in the run-up, we’ll be bringing you ideas and tips to help with preparations for the big day.
