The event began with a lunch, before guests were taken on a tour of one of London’s most famous contemporary art galleries. After exploring the myriad of rooms and exhibitions, guests gathered to begin the bartending competition. The talented bartenders created some inspiring cocktails, using knock-out flavour combinations – all of which were presented beautifully!

 

While the bartenders showed off their skills, we showed off some of ours! Our team served a selection of Create canapés, including smoked bacon muffins with fermented apple, seared scallops with cauliflower puree, cep macaroons, artichoke eclairs and hoi sin duck bonbons. We also served up some tempting sweet canapés, such as Linzer tart, opera gateau and rhubarb and custard panna cotta.

The Saatchi Gallery is one of London’s most exciting venues. Its unique nature not only stems from its fascinating history, but also because the space itself offers a range of possibilities and flexibility for your event.

The couple wed in the Nash Conservatory. The oldest of the 19th Century glasshouses at Kew, the Nash Conservatory is of both major historical and architectural importance. The venue was originally built inside Buckingham Palace’s grounds, and was later moved brick by brick to Kew, by King William IV in 1836.

 

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests raised a toast with a drinks reception and cake on the Banks Lawn.

 

  

 

Later, the Kew Explorer arrived to take guests to their next destination: The Orangery. This Grade I listed venue is light, airy and elegant, making it perfect for wedding breakfasts. It offers stunning views over the landscaped gardens and has room for up to 200 wedding guests.

Guests were served a delicious three-course wedding breakfast by the Create team. The starter was breast of quail, with smoked English pancetta, pumpkin purée, candied pecans, baby leaves and balsamic syrup. Or, a vegetarian option of chargrilled aubergine and smokey moutabel, with pomegranate, parsley, garlic and tahini sauce.

 

For the main course, we served a rendered duck breast with duck liver bon bons, creamed savoy cabbage, smoked pineapple gel, a beetroot ribbon, brown butter and blackberry vinegar and fennel. Vegetarians enjoyed a main course of spiced ratatouille, wrapped in courgette ribbons, with cocottes of beetroot, parsnip, butternut squash and potato, served with a pastry crisp.

 

For dessert, guests tucked into a ‘snow egg’ – a guava and custard apple egg with a sprinkling of lychee sherbet. There was also a vegan alternative of white chocolate gianduja mousse, with cherry jelly, almond meringue, cherry sorbet and lavender shortbread.

 

Then it was time for speeches and the grand opening of the photo booth, before the couple hit the dance floor for their first dance. Guests then partied the night away to celebrate the happy couple!

Over the years the State Apartments have hosted Monarchs and many other noble figures. The rooms were designed by Sir Christopher Wren and are adorned with paintings by the school of Van Dyck, Kneller and Lely as well as important carvings and mouldings by William Emmett, John Grove and William Cleere.

The trio of singing waiters served guests their meals before breaking into song, much to the guests’ delight! A table magician then brought a touch of magic to the evening’s entertainment, before the evening’s hotly anticipated speeches.

This wedding incorporated everything the couple loves, including great food and music! And of course – the couple’s dog, Gizmo the Lhasa Apso. Although Gizmo couldn’t personally attend the wedding, he was there in spirit with canine table names and a wedding post box shaped like a dog kennel. There was even a dog sculpted from flowers sitting on the grass and guests were treated to a choice of two cocktails both named after Gizmo – a Lhasa Martini and Gizmopolitan.

 

The wedding cake by Jemz Cake Box was a show-stopping 6-feet tall, adorned with handmade sugar flowers. Photography was by Anneli Marinovich.

The historic building is famous for accommodating some of the world’s finest luxury brands, shops and restaurants, but for this couple’s special day we transformed it into a mesmerising setting for a wedding breakfast.

 

The couple wed at nearby St Paul’s Cathedral. Shortly after the ceremony our first guests began to arrive for the wedding reception; drinks were served and guests were entertained with soft jazz music from Beyond Certainty.

During the reception guests were served a selection of Create canapés, including breaded octopus with oyster mousse and caviar, crispy asparagus gnocchi with rosemary and parmesan cream and venison tartar, with chilli and chocolate sauce.

The main course was a slow-braised beef daube or artichoke and tallagio arancini, with buttermilk creamed potato, glazed navets and a cabbage parcel. For dessert, the couple chose our tempting white chocolate, vanilla and cardamom tart, served with tangerine curd and white chocolate shavings, followed by coffee, tea and petit fours.

 

As guests headed to the dance floor to watch the couple’s first dance and get the party started, our team were busy working on the next instalment, an evening buffet of seasonal favourites. We served smoked salmon and cream cheese on bagels, baked goat’s cheese and pimento tarts, pork and sage sausage rolls, mini cheese burgers, cones of beer battered monkfish with chips and chargrilled Mediterranean vegetable kebabs with goat’s cheese.

 

The bride was delighted with how the day went, and got in touch following her wedding to say, “On the day it was like a dream! Walking into the Royal Exchange and seeing the perfectly arranged tables took my breath away and was exactly how I had pictured my wedding. I knew the service would be great but it exceeded my expectations! As soon as the guests arrived they were served the most exquisite seasonal canapes and (Create) never allowed glasses of prosecco to be less than half full!

 

The food service ran perfectly to time with the service staff serving all the guests at the same time in a manner that would rival the best restaurants in London. My husband and I like to think of ourselves as foodies and the wedding breakfast certainly didn’t disappoint! The whole operation was slick and professional and three months on I still have guests raving about how fantastic the day was. I would highly recommend this fantastic company to anyone planning an important celebration or event.”
