World-renowned venue Kew Gardens and its iconic buildings provide a unique and unforgettable setting for weddings. In April, the Create team catered for a luxurious wedding within the Royal Botanical Gardens.
Following a romantic ceremony in the Church on Kew Green, guests were welcomed with a drinks reception in the Nash Conservatory, complete with a selection of canapés by Create. The couple chose seared tuna with tomato marmalade and basil cream cheese, seared aged beef with blue cream cheese and piquillo pepper, fig and goat’s cheese panna cotta and forest mushroom choux buns, served in a wooden box with wheatgrass and edible flowers. Hot canapés included crispy pumpkin gnocchi with rosemary and parmesan cream, slow-cooked teriyaki pork belly and lamb faggot with truffled parsnip cream and pea shoots.
The wedding breakfast was served in The Orangery, a beautiful Grade I listed glasshouse with fantastic views. Guests were served a starter of crispy chicken ballotine with new season garlic emulsion, garlic oil and chard. The main course was Lancashire rump beef cap with potato and lemon thyme terrine, tarragon and bone marrow butter, and charred tenderstem broccoli.
For dessert, sweet canapés were circulated amongst guests, along with the decadent wedding cake. We served miniature Opera Gateaux with espresso cream, chocolate glaze and hazelnut, passionfruit marshmallows with coconut crumb and caramel syrup and Baileys brûlée encased in chocolate and lavender shortbread. Guests could then visit the cheese station to enjoy a selection of fantastic cheeses, including stilton, brie and cheddar, all served with crackers, fresh bread and fruit.
