We ticked another big box off our wedding checklist this week: meeting the caterer and finalising the menu. The caterer and I have been in email conversation since around June last year so it was nice to finally put a face to a name. David and I are real ‘foodies’, so I’ve decided to share our choices and hopefully make your mouths water as much as mine will writing it!
My Dad, David and I originally started brainstorming different aspects of the wedding, and we were all very keen on a good, country Hog Roast with all the trimmings. I’ve been to garden parties with a hog and it seems such a celebration of food and company, and totally fits the relaxed atmosphere we’re hoping for on our day. One problem: my Mum is, what she calls herself, “a reluctant meat eater”. She has even attempted to become a vegetarian in the past, and as soon as my Dad and I broke the news of our idea her immediate reaction was “not in my garden, you’re not!” But after a few months of persuasion, Mum came round to the idea, and when we both went to meet the caterer a few days ago, and with a bit of compromise (a covered oven instead of a spit roast), it looks like we’re having what we initially envisaged.
