A Wedding in Rye

Last weekend my team and I travelled down to East Sussex to cater for a wedding. The wedding was held in a beautiful outdoor location, Chitcombe Farm Organics run by Emma Howitt (check it out here at

Set within the farm grounds in a large marquee, it was such a beautiful place to work with spectacular views and a wonderfully organised yet relaxed atmosphere. Just off the main marquee we had our own kitchen tent in which to prep the food for the day.

We were to serve two starters followed by a selection of salads to accompany a delicious hog roast which was prepared and cooked on site by the lovely Eric. It was a really lovely occasion to cater for and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.
