Eat: Wedding picnic

Elderflower cordial in bottles

I’ve been very lucky to attend two beautiful weddings in the last month

Both different in their own ways, but both creative, amazing fun and full of love

Last Friday, Claire and Bren’s wedding reception took place in a lovely village hall which had been decorated with paper streamers, bright flowers and stylish signs

But the real genius lay in the wedding breakfast – each table had a huge (and I mean HUGE) picnic hamper full of tasty homemade food

Among the delights was jerk chicken, pulled pork, potato salad, roasted Mediterranean veg, tortilla, pork pie, potted shrimp, white bait, and plenty of bread, cheese and chutneys – beautiful!

All washed down with elderflower cordial served in mini glass bottles and shots of homemade fruity vodka and rum (which appeared to go down very well…)

And after the (hilarious) speeches, a selection of cakes and biscuits – I especially liked the Mr and Mrs gingerbread people!
