1. Mobile fish and chips from the Village Chippy is a great way to feed hungry guests without the hassle. The van rocks up ready to fry and the team headed up by Sue couldn’t be friendlier. The great thing about fish and chips is that it’s a pretty safe bet most guests will love it. The Village Chippy has a variety of menu options so you can’t go far wrong.

2. Hog roast has now become a really popular option. The bonus is it’s great for mass catering and it hits the spot for a traditional Kent themed wedding. Add some homemade apple sauce and a bun and you’ve got the perfect evening snack to soak up that cider! Flaming Porkys are based in Kent and have a variety of menu’s for your roast. They also do dessert options so save some room for the chocolate fountain!

3. If you don’t want hot food then how about a huge cheese board. With cheese cakes for weddings available throughout Kent you can add make the cheesecake into a fantastic centre piece and then add fruit, crackers, pates, cold meats and rustic bread. Great served with Kent wine and followed by mini apple tarts and rocky roads. We love The Cheesebox in Whitstable.

Happy Eating!

 

Is it really Sunday again? Where does the time go!

So Vijay and Leanne have been Mr and Mrs for a whole week now and we hope they are having an amazing honeymoon! We’ve had quite a week telling you about some of the suppliers that worked on their amazing fusion wedding and all this recapping is making us very impatient, we are dying to see the official photographs by N Photography, Hurry back Mr and Mrs B!.

In the meantime here’s a look back at their first week as newly weds.  First we shared the venue, the gorgeous Nettlestead Place, we’re still thinking about the views across the kent countryside, the perfect venue for those wanting exclusive use and a beautiful setting.

This week we also shared the fab Dream Days for You team headed up by Darminder Cheema. Dream Days specialise in Indian, Gujarati and Halal menus but do offer traditional English catering as well. Their portable catering service is great if you have a unique venue in mind as services can include catering staff, cutlery, crockery, linen and waiting staff. We were able to sample some of the menu and it was absolutely gorgeous.

Then in other wedding news we showed you our frock of the fortnight, one of our favourite designers Johanna Hehir has launched her new diffusion collection, Mae by Johanna Hehir. This gorgeous new range features soft georgette, silk crepe and vintage style lace in the dress designs. Dresses range in price from £1000 to £1500in our frock of the fortnight feature.

Our Real Kent WeddingInspiration came from Chris and Katie’s Wedding Safari at Port Lympe, with photography once again by the amazing Kerry Anne Duffy.

 

Finally we finished up with a fantastic vintage photoshoot at the very lovely Upnor Castle, Kent. The shoot was set up by Margate based photographer, Robert Marriott with the help of Maxine Gregory of Tea-licious and Sandra Andrews of Vintage Curves.

 

Here’s hoping for a hot and sunny July!

Make sure you pop by next week, we’ve got lots more inspiration to share with you .
