HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR WEDDING CATERER by Party Ingredients

Availability

It’s an obvious point, but it is vital to check if your caterer is available on your chosen date. Many venues have a list of preferred caterers, so once a date is finalised and the venue is booked, it is a good idea to start contacting catering companies; ideally at least nine months in advance.

Budget

Be honest about your budget. The best caterers will have a wealth of creative ideas that will deliver excellent results even on limited funds. Always get a written quote that lists all of the extras such as tableware, linens and props. Check if your quote includes VAT; a big financial sting if it is overlooked.

Quality of food

Your wedding food must be freshly prepared with sensational taste and immaculate presentation. Our food is seasonal and sustainable; only the best will do. 


Think outside the box

Challenge your caterer to think creatively for you and make the most of all their years of experience, skill and professional knowledge. Many of the venues we are sole caterers for are beautiful historic buildings where a formal style works so well; however we also love the ongoing trend for rustic, informally styled weddings.

Style Ideas * A long feasting table generously loaded with sharing plates * Beautifully simple florals such as jam-jars filled with seasonal flowers * Terracotta pots of herbs for table decorations


Service

A caterer should be passionate about the details that lift a wedding from good, to fabulous. Service is of paramount importance, equal to the quality and style of the food. It is vital that clients receive the utmost level of service from their initial enquiry to after their wedding day is over. We want every bride and groom to know their wedding is hugely important to us and that we will give them all of the enthusiasm, excitement and expertise that their big day deserves!

Nutbourne Vineyards Nutbourne is a boutique vineyard situated in the heart of West Sussex on gentle south facing slopes overlooking the South Downs. With its own stateof-the-art winery, Nutbourne produces awardwinning still and sparkling wines, most recently scooping a Gold in the International Wine and Spirit Competition for its’ Nutty Brut 2011. Nutbourne Vineyards is part of a renaissance where English Wines are routinely out-classing French Champagnes. Kent and West Sussex, where the best English sparkling wine originates, are only about 90 miles north of Champagne, whilst the chalky soils are very similar to the terroir where famous French Champagne houses plant their grapes. English sparkling wines are a fantastic choice for any event and are increasingly being chosen for high-profile celebrations, including the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. ‘Pale gold with hints of toast, apple/pear fruit; a rich palate balanced with crisp acidity and very good length – gorgeous!’ IWSC Judging panel describing Nutty Brut 2010

Where do you get your inspiration from? It usually comes from favourite puddings – the Stem Ginger and Madagascar vanilla, for example, was inspired by good old Ginger Cake and Custard and the Crème de Violette by Fortnums’ delicious Violet biscuits. There’s an ice cream shop at the beach in Polzeath, Cornwall, called Vanilla, which always has fabulously original flavours so I might poach some of theirs!


What’s your favourite part of a wedding?

I find it very hard not to get tearful during the vows and I love a salacious speech. The most exciting part though, is when the DJ takes to the decks and everyone loosens up.

What’s your favourite food?

I can’t get enough samphire! I love its’ texture, saltiness, appearance, provenance and it tastes as though it is doing you the world of good, no matter how much butter you fry it in! I also love a good cocktail; a classic Whiskey Sour has the perfect balance of sweet and tart, with enough alcohol to make you giggly.

What do you love most about your job?

I still make all the marshmallows myself, as I find it endless satisfying and reassuring that they always come out as fluffy little clouds. Printing out the chic personalised gift tags for events is always pleasing because they provide a unique touch for someone’s big day. I love doing stalls at festivals and fairs too: seeing the look on people’s faces when they try a sample and are converted to handmade marshmallows makes it all worthwhile.

What’s in store for Cloud Nine Marshmallows?

A very busy Christmas in our new dedicated kitchen. I was completely taken by surprise at Christmas when the orders started flooding in. The builders hadn’t finished the kitchen and our family home was over-run with marshmallows: playroom, porch, front hall, front staircase – it was chaos, but we fulfilled every order and this year we’ll be ready! Other than that I am working on new flavours, and may introduce a savoury marshmallow next year.


Cakes by Marnie Searchwell Marnie creates award-winning handmade cakes that are gluten-free, using the finest ingredients, with no artificial additives or flavours. Everything is baked to order, fresh from her London kitchen.


5 minutes with… Marnie Searchwell

Where do you get your inspiration from?

It’s flavours and ingredients that really excite me, so I’m always on the lookout for new flavour ideas. Gluten-free cakes are my speciality – I think they taste better than regular cakes. I love adapting recipes that sound interesting, so I find inspiration all over the place – from friends, in magazines, in restaurants, on the web.

What’s your favourite food/cocktail?

My favourite cake is probably one of my own recipes: Reine de Saba. It’s a moist, dark chocolate and almond cake, made with Jamaica rum. I adapted the recipe from a French classic, to make it gluten-free. It’s a gorgeous cake – and it won a Great Taste award last year!

What do you love most about your job?

I love being able to make a luscious cake for someone who’s spent years not being able to enjoy cake – someone who can’t eat gluten, or dairy, or eggs. It’s the best bit, when a couple comes for a tasting, and are amazed by the taste – when the bride- or groom-to-be can’t believe they’re actually allowed to eat something that tastes so good!

ALTERNATIVE WEDDING FOOD by Party Ingredients While a formal wedding breakfast is wonderful, many couples look for something a little different and want to celebrate their nuptials with a menu that reflects their personality. Party Ingredients share their current favourite menu ideas – the options to get creative are endless!

International food stalls These are a great way to reflect a couple’s cultural heritage and a wonderful touch if guests have travelled from overseas to attend. English Garden Risotto, Peruvian Ceviche or Chinese Dim Sum, there really is no limit to what can be cooked. Serving dishes can be themed too; what about disposable takeaway containers branded with the couple’s newly wedded initials?


Be Different Brides shouldn’t think they have to serve formal food just because it’s a wedding! If your heart is set on a favourite dish such as Fish and Chips or Sausages and Mash, then don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. Everybody loves the traditional Great British favourites, which give a nostalgic feel to any feast with family and friends!

Bowl food Bowl food is becoming increasingly popular at weddings. Instead of serving one main course, guests are offered a number of different meals in smaller portion sizes with plenty of variety, tastes and options. A brilliant solution for couples who struggle to choose (or agree!) what to serve their guests.

Table picnics Picnics are a lovely idea for a country garden style wedding. Each table is laden with gorgeous goodies such as pork pies, cold cuts, artisan cheeses, inventive salads and homemade breads with chutneys. Pair with Earl Grey Martini’s, served in miniature flasks, for an unexpected twist on the classic afternoon tea; sure to put a smile on Granny’s face!


Oh Squirrel is a beautiful stationary brand specialising in vintage inspired cards, hen party accessories, save-the-date, table settings and other bespoke wedding stationary; all with a jolly, cheeky and fun edge. Guests will be smiling as soon as they open their invitations!

5 minutes with… Steph Saffer

What’s your favourite part of a wedding?

The ceremony! The reason all friends and family are gathered, why so much planning has gone into the day and hopefully the most meaningful part of the day. It sets everyone up for a wonderful party too!

Who is your favourite chef/cook/baker?

My mum taught me how to cook and bake and helped instil in me a love for food. She’s the best cook.

What’s your favourite food/cocktail?

Chocolate, of course. If it gets to around 3 or 4pm and if I still haven’t had a nibble, I start to feel weird. A few squares of something dark and goodquality sorts me out pretty quickly.

What’s in store for Kokopelli’s Chocolate?

We are currently in the process of moving kitchen premises as we have outgrown the small space we started in. This means we will be able to expand a little and take on more work. We are thrilled to have just won a Great Taste Award for our Lime Chocolate, which may encourage us to enter more awards… watch this space!

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Whenever I eat out I check out the menu for ideas – not usually the desserts as you’d expect but often the drinks and cocktails menu. Sometimes ideas come to me in dreams too, which is harder to explain, but demonstrates how much I think about food and flavours.

What advice would you give to a bride-to-be?

Remain as calm as you can, remembering your wedding will last just one short day, and it will go by in a blur!


Harry Brompton's London Ice Tea Harry Brompton’s London Ice Tea is the brainchild of Ian O’Donohue, made with a blend of Kenyan tea, grain spirit and natural citrus. A former oil broker, he started with different teas and flavours to create a grown up version with a British twist. Harry Brompton’s is a fantastic choice for couples wanting the classic afternoon tea-party theme but want to serve their tea with a bit of a kick!

5 minutes with…

Ian O'Donohue Where do you get your inspiration from?

My wife; she is from the Ice Tea capital of the world, Atlanta, Georgia. Living there with her made me want to make fantastic British Ice Tea that I can send back over to the US!

What’s your favourite food/cocktail?

I’m a BBQ fanatic so great pulled pork and to kick things off a Gin Brompton goes very well indeed: Tall Glass half filled with ice, 25-35ml Gin, wedge of lime and topped up with Harry Brompton’s.

What’s in store for Harry Brompton’s London Ice Tea?

It's an exciting time for Harry! We've got a few things on the cards which we hope to be able to reveal soon and we will be ensuring Harry attends a number of events and launches in to new bars and pubs over the course of the rest of the year!

What’s your favourite part of a wedding?

For me personally, it’s all about the couple and their individual wedding concept and what I as a designer can bring to that. I absolutely love the uniqueness of each wedding; two people coming together, and the challenge that it brings in designing a bespoke cake.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

It’s impossible to pinpoint a single avenue of inspiration. There are so many sources, but generally they are the things I love: nature, art, architecture, fashion, culture, flowers or even the latest Pantone colours.

Who is your favourite chef/cook/baker?

My favourite cake designers are Maggie Austin, she is so inspirational and Ron Ben Israel, his cakes are outstanding, definitely the King Of Cakes. In terms of bakers, Dan Lepard and chefs, Raymond Blanc and Rick Stein.

What do you love most about your job?

I love the element of the ‘unknown’ whether that’s meeting new clients, creating new designs, experimenting with new flavours or visiting a new venue.

What advice would you give a bride to be?

I would encourage all brides to ‘go with the flow’, to be flexible in their approach and open to new ideas. This way there is more likelihood of them achieving what they actually want, as opposed to what they initially think they might want.

What’s in store for Cakes By Krishanthi?

The first thing that comes to mind is being nominated for the 2014 Perfect Wedding Awards, for which I am absolutely ecstatic. To receive such recognition from the public, clients and the wedding industry is amazing.


Name the Favour offers a clever take on re-designing the traditional name place and wedding favour by combining them into one completely bespoke product. Traditionally, wedding guests will find a 'favour' or gift from their hosts as a thank-you for attending placed next to their name card - this used to be a small bag of sugared almonds but has developed into anything from a small jar of homemade jam to gold plated cork screws. Name the Favour is designed to simplify this process – with the aim of combining the name place with the gift - so each guest takes home a personalised reminder of the day which can be reused and cherished.

DIY GIN STAND by Party Ingredients

Party Ingredients’ gin of choice is City of London Dry Gin, a smooth and distinctive spirit used to create a new cocktail, the Summer Solstice G&T.


Cocktail Hour is a growing trend with couples wanting unique drinks that create a real ‘wow-factor’. Party Ingredients’ expert mixologists have created a playful twist on the classic Gin and Tonic for a unique wedding Gin Stand. Guests are encouraged to get flavour-creative with a range of flavour combinations such as botanicals including coriander seeds, juniper, pink peppercorns, cinnamon, rosebuds, dried orange peel and other aromatics to infuse their drink – it’s a fantastic way for guests to mingle! The Gin Stand looks beautifully exotic piled high with Kilner jars and French vintage glassware filled with spices, botanicals and buckets of flowers. The delicate hibiscus flowers are especially popular; cocktails intensify in colour to give the drink a pretty dusky pink hue – much more inventive and beautiful than a plain glass of Champagne!

Makes one serve

50 ml City of London Dry Gin 200 ml Fever-Tree Tonic Water Botanicals: Juniper Berries and Coriander Seeds Garnish: Hibiscus Flowers Pour your gin and tonic into your favourite tall cocktails glass filled with ice. Stir through your desired amount of juniper berry and coriander seed botanicals. Alternative garnishes: try substituting hibiscus flower with fresh cucumber, lavender or borage.

Melanie is a connoisseur of penny sweets, in particular American hard gums and taffy and Emile is a chef (high functioning alcoholic) it was an obvious combination of the two.

Emile’s heritage is Bajan and nothing is better than his family’s rice & peas with gravy and jerk chicken.

What’s your favourite part of a wedding? My favourite part of a wedding is just before the ceremony. The atmosphere is buzzing as all of the guests are seated and everyone anticipates the Bride’s arrival. The Groom looks nervously at his watch, the Best Man checks he has the rings for the umpteenth time and the magical moment when the Bride walks down the aisle and the Groom sees his wife to be for the first time in her dress.


Where do you get your inspiration from? I take inspiration wherever I can, whether it be books, films or moments in everyday life. The great thing about shooting weddings is being able to draw on all aspects of photography from fashion and family portraits to product photography, enabling me to capture all the little details of the big day.
