Alex and Ben’s wedding at Exeter Castle
Historic court house, the site of the first hot-air balloon ascent in Exeter (June 1786) and location of the trial for the ‘Devon Witches’ the last witches to be tried in England; Exeter Castle is steeped in a rich and varied history. Today Exeter Castle, also known by its original name Rougemont Castle, plays host to a range of weddings and events including Coldplay during their 2009 Viva la Vida Tour.
As a caterer in the Exeter area we have been chosen to cater for a range of weddings and events at this historic location including the recent wedding of Alex and Ben.
We first met Alex and Ben when they were looking for a caterer for their Exeter wedding, having requested a copy of our Wedding Collections menus we started to explore ideas and options for their day. The catering was to include a full Wedding Breakfast with the addition of catering for their evening guests.
