Summer wedding season is in full swing at the moment, and we've been busy helping lots of brides and grooms make their big day extra special. One of those couples was Ben and Jess, and today we're sharing a little photo diary of their big day so you can get plenty of wedding inspiration for your own celebrations.
The wedding took place in Barcombe on Saturday 7th July 2018, with lots of lovely guests helping Ben and Jess celebrate their big day. The reception was held in gorgeous marquees, and luckily we had a lovely sunny day so were able to make the most of the outdoor location.
The Bear Claw team were in charge of the catering, as well as the tablescapes and styling. For the menu, we helped Ben and Jess choose a delicious feasting menu so guests could tuck in and help themselves. The menu included jerk and pomegranate molasses whole crusted chicken with pineapple, chilli, red onion and avocado salsa, and halloumi, garlic potato rosti, peas and broad beans for the veggie option. These were accompanied by a variety of sides, including roasted garlic new potatoes, celeriac, apple and cabbage slaw, fennel roasted butternut squash with rocket, spinach and baby kale, and toasted pine nuts and vinaigrette.
As well as the main feasting menu, we also provided some canapés for guests to enjoy along with an Elderflower Collins cocktail. How good do these sweetcorn fritters with avocado and crayfish look... even if we do say so ourselves! After dinner, we also whipped up some desserts, with raspberry and white chocolate pavlova, and elderflower, raspberry and kiwi cream.
We absolutely loved styling the tables at Ben & Jess's wedding - especially as they are big fans of our favourite style, urban rustic. We kept things quite simple to match the relaxed vibe of their wedding, with crisp white napkins tied up with brown string, and posies of wildflowers in jam jars decorating the tables. The flowers were homegrown by the couple's family - such a lovely, personal touch! The gorgeous menu was also hand made by a friend.
A big thank you to Ben and Jess for letting us be part of your special day!
