'The Parker's' Winter wedding

Posted on 04 January 2019

What better way to start the year than with a wedding! Yesterday we had the pleasure of hosting ‘The Parkers’ after their wedding ceremony at Caston Church.

Greeted with a warming glass of mulled wine or a glass of fizz, guests were welcomed out of the cold into Coronation Barn to await the arrival of Aimee and Luke. The gorgeous couple couldn’t be happier as they pulled up to the front steps and made their way into the barn hand in hand - Aimee looked beautiful in her Grecian style gown!

The wonderful Sean Goodman kept everyone entertained as he bounced from group to group to dazzle them with his magic tricks and Chef’s snack ladders went down a treat as guests mingled in the barn. We loved that the couple had kept the décor simple and elegant with tall vases of pussy willow and little tea light candles on each table. This was complemented by KWF’s golden fairy lights which were hung throughout the barn.

Our couple had chosen their menu very carefully with the help of a private menu tasting with Chef last April and their choices certainly went down well with their guests. For starters everyone enjoyed a mozzarella, tomato and basil salad with Parma ham ribbons followed by succulent braised pork belly with roasted roots! At their tasting the couple and Aimee’s parents just couldn’t decide between the puddings so decided to have them all and create a delicious trio for guests to indulge in!

Speeches from Aimee’s Dad Simon, best men Ben and Craig and our Groom Luke were enjoyed by all, with many stories being shared as the room filled with laughter and cheers!

The evening was kicked off in style with our lovely couple taking to the dance floor for their first dance as Mr & Mrs Parker – everyone gathered around to see them both before joining in and our House DJ picked up the tempo to get the party going! Our warming jacket potato station was the perfect option for a winter evening as everyone tucked into a hot potato with a selection of delicious toppings!

Congratulations Aimee and Luke on your special day! It has been a pleasure to get to know you both over the last year and we wish you all the best for your new adventure together including your new arrival! xx
