  • Wedding: February 2018 - UK

Ours was at a hotel in the U.K. We had mixed cocktail snacks at the drinks reception – I can’t remember them as I never got a chance to eat them!

For our main meal we had:

Starter – ham hock and gruyere tart with rocket salad.

Main – pork belly with apple purée and roasted vegetables 

Dessert – lime tartlet (yep, we had two tarts in one meal!) with rum soaked raisins and coconut sorbet


Our evening meal was traditional fish and chips, or hot dogs. UK weddings typically serve two meals, so the evening guests can eat too.

The cake was strawberry and cream sponge with strawberry milkshake flavoured buttercream.
