A feast of a Wedding

A couple of blog posts back I told you about the making of cookies as favours for my neighbours Jo and Mick's wedding. Well the big day was yesterday and what a day it was! The bride looked gorgeous and the groom very handsome in his bestoke suit. I nearly blubbed as they said their vows but I held back my tears of joy in a very manly way. :0) I have never seen such a happy couple and I hope that you join me in wishing them all the best.

The reception was super, the food first class and the wine flowed at the Chequers Restaurant near Belvoir. Yours truly had brilliant time chatting to friends old and new.  The cookie favours were a hit!

I'm off to the NEC today for the BBC Good Food Show with my mate Janette. I've been awake since 5am so I hope that I stay awake for our trip.

French Fancy asked me to add something about about the food so here's a picture of my main and the ginger pudding.

This meal also came with french beans and al dente carrrots.

Ginger pudding.

Congratulations to the happy couple.

French Fancy said...

Is the bride the lady who makes the jams that you've photographed? Lots of potted bliss to them.

Phil Lowe said...

Thanks Dedene.

French Fancy: Yes she is and thanks. xx

French Fancy said...

Come on - tell us what you wore - were you suited and booted? What food was there? details plse

Phil Lowe said...

French Fancy: Yes, I scrub ok. I wore a grey overcoat as twas a bit chilly and under that an olive green jacket, smart black trousers and shoes, a white shirt and an Italian silk tie in a champagne yellow colour - oh and a nice button hole flower.

The food was great. I had a fancy pancake with a blue cheese filling for a starter and an indescribably lovely piece of beef for the main with al dente carrots and green beans. I'll add a picture in a sec. For dessert I had a ginger pudd.
