Food and drink
Creating a menu that’s close to your heart is a really good way to express yourselves. “For a wedding we worked on last year, the celebrations were themed on different countries that the couple had lived in.” says Rose Lloyd Owen, director of Peardrop (peardroplondon.com). “The drinks reception transported everyone to Japan, with fresh sushi made to order by a chef. The dinner was Italian – the guests ate burrata with Sicilian caponata, and seabass with braised fennel, followed by gelato. They ended the evening in ‘New York’. We made cosmopolitans, manhattans and served Reuben sandwiches.
“An easy way to personalise your menu is by altering cocktail names to incorporate things the couple like. We did A Midsummer Night’s Dream- themed wedding where we served ‘Puck’s Fizz’ and ‘Bottom’s Up’.”
