Megan and Andrew’s wedding at Chulmleigh

Megan and Andrew married in the village church at Chulmleigh, a Saxon village on the mid Devon border, close to the banks of the River Taw Megan arrived, with her bridesmaids to their marquee reception in true Devon style, surrounded by fragrant straw bales, colourful bunting and sat high on the beautifully decorated trailer hitched to one of the farms tractors.

We first met Megan and Andrew when they were looking for a wedding caterer for their summer Devon wedding – we started by sending them a copy of our Wedding Collections menus containing options for Canapes, Starters, Wedding Breakfast, Desserts and evening guest catering. All wedding catering is prepared fresh and from scratch meaning we can include family favourites, tailor the recipes to suit and cater for individual guest requirements.

Together we explored the options for catering, tried a few delicious dishes and created a menu that was perfect for Megan and Andrew’s day.

Canapes – hand-prepared and included;

  • Toasted pitta topped with harissa hummus
    with a pomegranate vinaigrette
  • Miniature Yorkshire puddings
    filled with Devon roast beef, horse radish and crème fraiche

    topped with chorizo

with the addition of hand-baked canape sized Devon pork sausage rolls, Sticky squash bite and Devon farmed pork honey glazed canape sausage.
