Jenita and Alex’s wedding at Tawstock Court

Jenita and Alex contacted us when they were looking for a wedding caterer to provide both a full Wedding Breakfast and evening catering for their guests at their chosen venue, the historic and beautiful Tawstock Court in north Devon. Tawstock, a magnificent manor house and estate set high above the village of Bishops Tawton was until a few years ago run as a private school. Under new ownership the estate has undergone a remarkable refurbishment programme and today is one of the premier wedding and events venues in north Devon.

We have catered for many weddings, parties and events at Tawstock and have many more booked over the next few months and years. We met with Jenita and Alex shortly after they had received a recommendation from Tawstock’s owners, together we started to explore options for their Wedding Breakfast from our Wedding Collections menus – each wedding is unique and as we freshly prepare we are able to adapt any of our menus to cater for individual taste and guest requirements.

Wedding Canapes chosen by Jenita and Alex included:

  • Canape size individual fish cakes with a sweet chilli dipping sauce
  • Mini Yorkshire puddings filled with Devon beef, crème frais and horseradish
  • Freshly prepared chicken liver pate presented on toasted brioche w/onion chutney
  • Fine sliced cucumber topped with smoked salmon and cream cheese
