Wedding for Joanne and Ian, NorthBrook Park

I have now catered for two Weddings at Northbrook Park and both have been an amazing and rewarding experience. It was a complete pleasure from beginning to end for my latest couple, Joanna and Ian, who were such lovely people, deserving a great ceremony and superb food that should suit such a grand occasion. We first met last year for a Wedding tasting combined with a Private Dinner Party which I produced a totally bespoke and alluring menu for, based on Joanna and Ian's list of favourite foods. The whole family enjoyed the food I produced on the evening and it sealed the deal for me to go ahead with their Wedding Catering. I went on to organise producing the whole menus from the tasting, following Joanna's desired Cypriot theme. Upcoming to the Wedding, we met up at Northbrook park to go through all details and exchanged further emails to finalise everything to ensure the event to be as perfect as possible, meeting all expectations.
