Background

‘I Dream in Citrine’ was a wedding showcase based around a celebration of colour. Yellow to be precise. Devised by Miss Bush Bridal in Ripley, this sparkling summer evening event draws inspiration from the healing crystal, Citrine. The venue for the showcase is an old methodist chapel based in Ripley. Stunning and iconic, we were honoured to be asked to cater the event. There was no doubt we were in heady company.

 

Brief

The Miss Bush team have been dressing stylish, fashion-conscious brides for 30 years. Their customers were invited to attend a summer showcase organised in collaboration with wedding planner and event organiser Susie Evans. The showcase was packed with a sparkling new collection from Eliza Jane Howell and pieces from designer Gill Harvey, milliner Joanne Edwards and Miss Clemmie and supported by suppliers oozing elegance and class. It was clear from the outset that our canapés would need to be elegant, stylish, easy to eat and ultimately delicious.

The Four Gables Award Winning Touch

We got our thinking caps on and came up with some stunners. Delivering the final result took persistence. To satisfy the exacting requirements we had to source several new suppliers. Golly the results were worth it. Highlights included chargrilled pineapple with chilli, lime and lemongrass; seasoned tiger prawns with butternut squash; sweetcorn creme brûlée with caramelised chorizo (acting as the sugary crispy top normally associated with pudding brûlées); goats cheese and yellow beetroot 99 cones and a refreshing cherry tomato consommé with basil oil served in shot glasses.
