But now we focus on what we consider to be the main event… the food! Your Yorkshire Wedding approached us asking for our take on three very different themes…

1. Traditional – Three course seasonal wedding breakfastAuto Draft 3

It’s always best to keep things seasonal, and if you’re having a traditional three-course wedding breakfast it is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the best of what the seasons produce has to offer!

To start we would keep it light and treat your guests to a traditional fish starter; smoked tuna niçoise served with Jersey royals, French beans, black olives and quails egg and a cider infused apple relish to give the dish a zing.

For main at this time of year it simply has to be lamb and we would suggest impressing your guests with the best this produce has to offer by serving lamb three ways; loin, shoulder and sweetbread with rosemary confit potato, goat’s cheese and black olive .

To finish, incorporate Yorkshire’s finest home-grown… rhubarb, with a Yorkshire rhubarb cheesecake and strawberry soup.

With each course pair wines to suit, a warming red like Shiraz with a hint of spice would complement the lamb dish perfectly.

2. Relaxed – Barbeque

If you’re lucky and we get a beautiful never-ending summer like last year, then nothing would suit the occasion better than an informal barbeque. Stack it full with Yorkshire suppliers such as Lishman’s of Ilkley and Milford Farm for delicious fuss-free burgers and sausages, then let guests help themselves to ready-made cocktails from Kilner drink dispensers, and bottles of beers chilling on ice in buckets.

3. Alternative – Afternoon tea

Auto Draft 2There is something so traditional yet alternative to having afternoon tea for your wedding. You might not want the fuss but still want a treat, and afternoon tea ticks all the boxes, especially when combined with plenty of Champagne to toast the day with your friends and family!
