Elopement menu food shoot…

Some of you may already have seen some of our pics on Instagram from the elopement food photo shoot we did a few weeks ago with our private chef Harrie from Boo To  A Goose. Guy Harrop (my go-to person for food shoots, he’s the best) came back to the venue this time for another first, shooting our elopement wedding menu. Harrie is our exclusive chef for our elopement weddings (more details here if you are interested in an elopement) and she has designed 3 menus just for us for autumn, winter and spring. In the pic above you can see a some of Harrie’s starters of (bottom left) seared scallops with pea puree and chorizo butter; (top right) seared prawn with shaved fennel salad, avocado cream, ruby grapefruit and sweet potato crisp while bottom right is artichoke and parmesan pannacotta, pickled girolles, brown sherry jelly and grain mustard – I mean YUM!

Winter elopement photo shoots up on the website…

I got on a roll putting up the photos from the Magnolia Rouge shoot this morning so thought I would get on and do the winter elopement shoots we did here last year with our elopement photographer Clare Kinchin, our elopement florist Amanda Randell and our preferred elopement hair and make up duo, Jodie and Chloe from The Hair Lounge Tavistock and Jess from Visage Aesthetics. The lovely Kayleigh and Ben were our local, real life models who had got married in real life a few months earlier.   They’re just so lovely together, it was like being at a real wedding! I wanted to do a shoot here in December because I wanted to give couples a realistic view of what the garden looks like here in the winter.   There are no leaves on the trees and nothing is in flower but the venue still has its own natural beauty as you can see from the photos. We … Continue reading

Our new ideas for adding edible flowers to your wedding food

A few weeks ago we did another food & drink shoot here on site with our favourite food photographer, Guy Harrop.   This time I brought our chefs from our outside caterers together with Jan, the owner of Maddocks Organics edible flower farm, to put together some ideas and inspiration we could pass on to our couples for their wedding reception food using edible flowers from Jan’s farm.   Honeysuckle scones and whole roses in this seasons must-have dessert, the edible flower jelly were my personal favourites. Click here to download our list to inspire you for your own wedding.   Catherine has helpfully included comprehensive instructions for each drink so you can mix them at home and play around with the recipe to make it truly personal. So go on, give your guests something unexpected that reflects the location and ties in with your wedding style…
