West Heath Wedding Fair – Sevenoaks, Kent

It was a lovely sunny Sunday in Sevenoaks for my wedding fair at West Heath School. What a lovely building- it would be stunning for any bride’s special day. 

Thank you to all those who were there on the day- from fellow suppliers to the brides and grooms themselves! 

I met some really lovely people and enjoyed the day. I chatted to Katie the celebrant and to Brad the entertainment chap and was very grateful to get some good cider pub suggestions for our cider from him! I admired Simon the bar-man’s elderflower fizz and scoffed Stephanie’s delicious canapés! YUM!

Hope everyone enjoyed my little tasters. The scones seemed to go down well! 

I loved showing them off on my vintage cake stands supplied by my talented vintage China lady Emily. 

Anyone looking for jammy wedding favours you know where I am!


Spring Wedding Fever


Spring has most definitely sprung! The days are longer, the birds are louder, the lambs are being born, the grass is greener and the daffodils are bright yellow.

At last!

After such a miserable and damp winter, it is a welcome relief to see the garden and countryside unfurl.

The blossom is stunning. Is it better than last year? I don't remember, and it doesn't matter – it's here now. And what a picture it is. Fields of apple trees is a spring delight.

We were in Somerset over the Easter weekend and enjoyed being part of the Easter Sunday service. In a teeny and very pretty church with sandy coloured stone walls a young couple listened to their bans of marriage being read out – a lovely moment for a couple in love, about to be married!

My thoughts turn to summer and the traditional season for weddings. I am hoping to have the opportunity to make homemade wedding favours for some local brides.

Attractive miniature jars, decorated beautifully with a colourful ribbon filled with yummy locally made jam or chutney according to the bride's taste. Would suit all weddings – but especially those who appreciate good food.
Fun, personal and much more interesting than a bag of sugared almonds!
