Our ceremony took place at our local church, St Mary the Virgin, Burghill, Herefordshire (www.burghillchurch.org/). Revd. Penny Littlewood officiated the ceremony. Penny was wonderful throughout the whole experience, from first contacting her, right through to the big day.
We wanted a traditional dinner for our wedding breakfast and had been recommended by both family and Edward at Burton Court that we use a local company “Lyn Bullock Catering LTD”, Hereford. We made arrangements to meet Lyn at her home address in order to discuss our requirements. Lyn could not be more obliging with our request, especially when explaining that the groom suffers with severe allergies. The food on the day was fantastic and we received nothing but positive comments from all who attended.
For the evening we used Chris Ogleby from Ogleby butchers to provide us with a hog roast. Again this food was second to none, outstanding food (www.oglebybutchers.co.uk).
The cake we had provided for us was made by Janet at Emily Rose Cakes (www.emilyrosecakes.co.uk). Again Janet was recommended to us by many people who had tasted her fabulous in the past. We decided to have a single round lemon drizzle cake accompanied by 80 cupcakes. When explaining to Janet about the groom’s severe food allergy she was more than accommodating.
As we had a winter wedding, Edward provided us with a special winter wedding package. This came with a host of added extras including drinks supplied on arrival to welcome all guests, toasting champagne and wine supplied with the wedding breakfast on all tables. We decided to have warm winter pimms with apple juice for all guests arriving, which went down very well.
Burton Court also has its own licenced bar. This is particularly nice as Edward allows you to select local ale’s/beers/ciders/spirits to suit your taste.
