Sabrina and Matthew’s country wedding was set in the grounds of Preston Court; a beautiful, unique venue set in a private estate in Kent. The couple had wanted the wedding to have a relaxed and informal feel, yet of course retaining simple, elegant touches that make a wedding day special. Sabrina was clear that the food was the second most important element of her wedding (after her husband!) so it was our job to deliver mouth-watering, amazing food and service to match.
We first met Sabrina and Matthew in August 2015 to throw a few ideas around and get the planning started. We had a number of meetings, telephone conversations and tasting sessions to refine all of their wonderful ideas into the incredible day that they were hoping for.
On the day, the CURA team promptly got to work in the stunning Kentish Barn; the designs all came together, topped off by the beautiful floral arrangements by BluBelle Creative. Behind the scenes our Chefs we busy working away on the delicious food for the reception and wedding breakfast.
Guests poured in, the sun shone and the ceremony went perfectly. Even the local peacocks had something to say about it! Champagne and more-ish canapés were served; delicate beetroot cured salmon, harrisa prawns and seared scotch beef with a pistachio and ackee were just a few on the list. In the barn the wedding breakfast was served to the table with guests sharing and serving big, bold, fresh plates of food, abundant with flavour and colour; ‘Nduja toasts, roasted aubergine with spiced yoghurt, honey roasted figs and San Daniele… that was just the starter! In similar fashion the main course was served, conversation and drinks flowing the whole room was filled with magic moments from start to finish. After a pause for speeches and a breath of cool evening air, fresh coffee and cake (by the Fairy Dust Bakery) were served before the band performed for the newlyweds and their guests – dancing into the wee small hours!
After some well deserved relaxation on their honeymoon, we had a little message sent to us….
Just wanted to say a humongous thank you to you and to your team for doing such a fantastic job!! The food was simply fantastic and everyone was raving about it too! Everything down to the last detail was utterly brilliant! I may have been the only bride to devour a lot of the food there was no way I was missing out on that!
The lamb in particular was utterly fantastic people will be speaking about it for months I think!
Thanks for all your time and efforts in the lead up to it has been an absolute pleasure!
Writing this message from a sunlounger in Brazil so finally relaxing!
Love Sabrina and Matthew
