We decided to go with Careys Manor’s in-house florist Little Lillies. Right from the start Owen was great to work with and provided our table centrepieces and matched them beautifully to my bouquet. We had plenty of compliments on the floral arrangements from our guests.
As part of our package, we got to go for a menu tasting to try the starter, main and dessert options are guests would have. All three options were delicious! Both Chris and I chose to have the same dishes. A highlight was the Potted Salmon and Brown Shrimp with Pickled Cucumber and Rye Crisp starter – this is hands down the most delicious dish I have ever tasted. The potted salmon had so much flavour and tasted so fresh. For mains, we had the Chicken Breast, Polenta, Mushrooms and Herb Pure. The chicken breast was so tender and was a nice-sized dish. For dessert, we had the treacle sponge cake with custard and ice cream. This is both mine and Chris’ favourite. It was nice and warm when it was serviced and you can’t bet some custard!
We went with Sarah Elvin Photographer. Sarah is a very experienced wedding photographer and we loved her more natural style of wedding photography rather than all of them looking posed.
Chris and I chose Matt from Forever Captured. Matt and his team did an amazing job on the day, making us feel comfortable in front of the camera and were brilliant at making themselves invisible so we didn’t feel like we were being followed by a camera all day.
