We’ve had the pleasure of creating several special occasions for this client and their renewal of vows celebration was no exception. Briefed to create a stylish, intimate garden party set in the stunning South Downs, the ceremony was held outdoors overlooking the countryside. A gospel choir performed an uplifting set throughout.

An intimate sit-down meal for 60 followed inside the marquee, where potted topiary trees from Architectural Plants, painted apple green cladding and soft pink rose climbers set the garden party scene.

Our chefs delivered a mouth-watering menu of gazpacho andaluz with Spanish almonds and basil sorbet; ballotine of cornfed chicken, foie gras and wild mushrooms; native lobster ravioli with beurre noir and nasturtium leaves; chocolate delice, nuts and salted caramel with vanilla bean ice cream; and a selection of cheeses with quince jelly.

After dinner, DJ Sally kickstarted the evening entertainment and kept guests on the dance floor until dawn.
