Hello you lovely lot and welcome to another hot hot hot day here on the...
This afternoon we are meeting up with the lovely Becky, the blogs very own London reporter as she shares with us all what she has been up to on the blogs behalf. This time it seems to be all about the food. I have to admit I was pretty jealous that I couldn’t make either of these events when Becky sent me the photos though. I knew I’d missed a couple of great nights. So if you are a foodie and looking for some inspiration for your wedding catering then stay tuned as Becky has everything you need to know about two fabulous catering companies in London doing amazing things!
I have been so spoilt recently and been to two stunning wedding dining events. Both unique, both had amazing food, both completely different experiences.
My first soirée was an event hosted by Bubble Food. Bubble Food create bespoke, creative and luxurious events for any occasion so it makes perfect sense they have now officially launched Bubble Weddings.
The experience started right from the invite box they sent. Bubble Weddings are all about creating a tailored, spectacular and highly memorable wedding and they can provide just the food or offer the full planning service.
They launched Bubble Weddings at the exquisite Banqueting House in Whitehall. An absolutely stunning venue. From the start I got a sense of what Bubble Weddings are all about. The canapés were fun. Little fish and chips on personalised edible ‘newspaper’. Little pizzas presented in a large pizza box. But it’s not all style over substance. It was delicious as well.
When we walked into the Main Hall to dine, we were all blown-away by the theatre of the room. The exquisite hall had been transformed into the ‘Four Seasons’, the theme of the menu with the most gorgeous flowers arranged by celebrity florist Simon Lycett.
Bubble Wedding’s attention to the little things is what sets them apart and creates that unforgettable experience. Like the poem printed on to filo pastry (this could be anything you wanted), and a party popper for your dessert that you popped over an amazing passion fruit meringue to sprinkle glitter over it.
Everything could be tailored for your own unique day and I reckon if you had the imagination they could do it. It was like being in a dream.
From quirky foods with a seasonal theme to fresh seasonal produce. My next event was at the Institute of Contemporary Arts. A really lovely venue and location, especially for a wedding.
The ICA have partnered with Rochelle Canteen, a well-respected restaurant in East London. Rochelle Canteen are all about fresh, seasonal produce and simple menus and know how to run an event and create a tasty menu.
It was all sharing plates. A great way to get stuck in, get to know your neighbours and share the experience. We were sat next to the fabulous Chiara Menage (owner of Menage Modern Vintage), whose vintage wedding dresses had been modelled earlier while we listened to beautiful Operatic singing.
The wedding menu consisted of artichoke salad, Devilled crab and little tasty grilled quails to start. With fresh meaty baked brill, juicy sirloin and aubergine for the main.This is a wedding breakfast that your guests will be talking about for years to come!
Hi, I’m Becky. A city dweller, living with my partner right in the heart of everything, in London. I take great delight in discovering new places, so I try and escape as much as I can.
I am practically a professional wedding goer and just love experiencing or looking at a couple’s special day and seeing how they have put their own unique stamp on it. I am a little obsessed by all things decadent and vintage and love anything that is a fairy tale come true.
