Thily & Wain

Who: Thily & Wain | When: July 2016 | Where: Fetcham Park

You might as well aim high when planning a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, and Thily and Wain came up with an emphatic brief for their day: ‘Create that luxurious wow factor!’ Set in the magnificent grounds of Fetcham Park, guests gathered to start the day with an ancient Chinese wedding tradition, which sees the groom compete in a series of tests and games (known as door games) before he can claim his bride! This was shortly followed by a beautifully styled brunch in the garden, consisting of pastries, fruit skewers, smoked salmon blinis, fresh juice and mini granola pots, all presented on vintage-style ladder shelving.

With the guests well fed and entertained by the door games, the nuptials commenced, followed by a tea ceremony, and then a selection of canapés was circulated on the terrace and in the stunning grounds. As dusk fell, guests took their seats for a sumptuous meal, and then afterwards a night of dancing.

Our brief was to create a menu which was elegant, beautifully presented and delicious, so we focused on exquisite ingredients, accented with a few exotic flavours. We really allowed our imaginations to take over for dessert, with a patisserie boutique laden with sweet treats and adorned with the prettiest pastel-toned flowers courtesy of Fairy Nuff. Situated in the grand Shell Room at Fetcham Park, it definitely achieved the luxurious wow factor that Thily and Wain had dreamed of. They wrote to us shortly afterwards with the following kind words…

‘Just wanted to say a massive thanks to you and your lovely team. You did such a fantastic job of making it all come together – the presentation and flavours were spot on. And such great service throughout the day, you really are all a bunch of super-trooper ninjas. The banquet was delicious as was all the finger food and dessert. We got a lot of compliments for the food and thanks for making all our guests feel so welcome. We will be sure (not that you need it) to spread word of your services far and wide.’
