The freshest and most desirable, delectable morsels in town. The Luxury Channel meets Clemmie Innes to talk wedding breakfasts and fresh produce….
How do menus for a wedding breakfast differ from a 21st birthday party, say, or corporate event?
The menu is bespoke to the couple getting married. Every menu we do for weddings are as different as every client’s tastes.
Can you give us an example menu for 200 guests?
Start with a delicious fresh English crab salad with avocado, tomatoes and a dash of lime. A main course of herb crusted rack of lamb with sweet potato and fennel gratin, and a watercress sauce. Finish with a delicious red berry tartlet, blackcurrant sorbet and wedding cake!
What creative food opportunities does the wedding breakfast allow for?
This is an opportunity for the bride and groom to have what they like to eat that they wouldn’t normally have at home and to adjust this to make it perfect for all their guests.
What unique touches can Sugar & Spice add to ensure a bride’s guests are happy and well-fed?
We offer evening tastings and champagne so all couples ensure that they know what to expect on the day and can make any tweaks to any course. From the first conversation to the day of the wedding itself, they will deal with the same person who will ensure that everything discussed is produced perfectly on the day.
