Rachel & Alan

Who: Rachel and Alan | Where: Millbridge Court

Some couples spend months (or even years) dreaming up their wedding day. But within two weeks of their engagement, Rachel and Alan had already settled on their venue and just nine weeks later they were exchanging their vows. The venue in question was stunning Millbridge Court in Surrey, and even with such a tiny timeframe to prepare, no details were spared!

The brief from the couple in question was clear and simple – ‘make it fun and informal’, so we decided that sharing food would be the ideal way to get all their guests involved and cut out any unnecessary formalities. After serving up some bite-size canapés in the sunshine, guests were treated to a mix of meze and antipasti boards containing Italian meats, mozzarella, chickpea salad, tabbouleh, hummus and a selection of breads.

For their main course, Rachel and Alan decided on beautifully tender rump of new season lamb. One guest from each table was nominated to collect the meat from the kitchen and carve at their table. The carvers were given aprons and hats to make it all the more fun. And then, as a treat for the eyes and the tummies, our Patisserie Bar provided a sweet sensation with its mix of delectable summery desserts such as Eton Mess and Lemon Posset.

After their whirlwind wedding, the happy couple sent us these extremely kind words…

‘Well what can we say apart from amazing, amazing, amaaaazing!!! From the moment we arrived at Millbridge Court, we knew this was the definitely the place we wanted to get married. It was modern, beautiful, sophisticated and just utter gorgeousness. We had our own ideas from day one of how we wanted our wedding to be and then you jumped aboard and took it that 10 steps further to make it even better! I am a very attention to detail girl, but after meeting you I knew I didn’t have to worry about a thing. You ladies are creative perfectionists. From the sharing starters, to the carve (that was SO much fun – our guests loved it), the patisserie station and oh the cheese board! It was such a unique way to host our guests and bring the fun element to our wedding.

We have been inundated with messages and calls from our guests about the day – amazing food (oh how they loved the food, so many comments on the food), the venue, the service, how fun it was and just generally how it was the perfect day.Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us create our perfect day in such a short space of time. Because of your amazing team you didn’t make me worry once – I had complete confidence that you would deliver. What is also lovely is that you made us feel like our wedding was the most important event when we were liaising with you. The service you provide is truly personal. I have actually named you my little fairies. You ladies just go around with your magic wand sprinkling that magic fairy dust everywhere you go and making everything beautifully perfect!

We had the BEST DAY EVER! With love and thanks, Rachel & Alan’
