last October Create was chosen to cater at a luxurious wedding breakfast taking place at London’s famous Royal Exchange.

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. Smoked mozzarella was served in tartlet cases, with aubergine puree and beetroot.


Later guests were seated to celebrate the couple’s wedding with a delicious wedding breakfast. The meal began with a starter of butternut and chicken, including butternut puree, crispy chicken pave, baked pumpkin and confit apple, or a vegetarian alternative of camembert, fig and onion, with white onion chutney, sweet pea and endive.

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.”
