The theme was elegant with subtle vintage touches – the guests entered the venue and the atmosphere was quiet – Until the guests were asked to open their hampers and share out the food. As with most hamper weddings the conversations started to flow and the laughter and excitement in trying all the different options raised the vibration and atmosphere to a new level –  food that had been beautifully packaged in little brown boxes, platters and glass jars were torn open and placed on plates with chutneys on the side to taste! The sounds of devouring a Newmarket Hamper filled the room and the compliments could be heard from table to table as our staff circled the room clearing as they went!

A glorious elegant wedding for a beautiful couple – who we had the opportunity to work closely with to create their perfect day!
