Spring ’17 Summaries

Food

How is it possibly May already? Typing away, the sun is shining and the birds are singing! Spring is most definitely here and that can only mean that Summer is just around the corner and with it event and wedding season is upon us. Although we’ve already had quite a few events and a wedding, summer is the traditional time to say ‘I Do’, however our season starts mid-April and continues through to September. Busy (but fun) times ahead! Intermingled with some corporate events (one tomorrow actually) and a few big birthday’s and special occasions this year looks set to be a big one.

Before we have all these though, let us recap a little over the past 3 months. So what have we been up to…well you would think that these months are the quietest; not exactly! Although not literally, we have been making hay whilst the sun shines, in other words prepping for the many events and weddings that the year holds. We have been busy with tastings galore, looking at our menus and re-jigging them, coming up with some exciting new menus and ideas and organising ourselves and our staff ready for when it’s all systems go.

We also have some exciting plans for our premises and are hoping to create and install something quite special! You’re going to have to wait for a few more details, but let’s just say it’s going to good!

Amongst all of the prep and admin, we’ve had a weddings and events galore! It’s never really quiet for us! One of our lovely weddings fell on Valentine’s Day – how romantic! Guests were treated to a sumptuous buffet full of goodies and brimming with food. “I just wanted to touch base and say thank you for helping our wedding day be amazing! The lamb was the hit of the day as were the burgers and chips and the puddings were also super yummy! I wish I could do it all again and sit and eat it all again! You and your staff were wonderful on the day and really helped with the smooth running of things.” Such fab feedback received too, which always makes us smile!

Weddings

It’s fair to say we have been busy little wedding planning bee’s at the start of this year. As with the food and events side, in the ‘quiet’ months, it’s great to get everything in order, planning, prepping and generally making sure you are being productive and finalising plans for your summer weddings. All this, mixed with meetings and some tastings keeps us busy, but we do love this part when all the plans start to take shape and the couples can really start to see their big day coming together. Absolutely love seeing that!

In addition to all of the planning, we’ve also been asked to help style a few wedding inspiration shoots and organise a couple of our own. We sadly can’t give much away yet, but once we know when they are published, all shall be revealed. We also had a few previous shoots feature on Bridal Musings, Fine Art Wedding Boutique  You & Your Wedding Online and in Perfect Wedding Magazine and You & Your Wedding Magazine. The feeling you get seeing your work really is quite special; getting to be creative and working with some fellow amazing industry pro’s is just amazing and is something that we just love to do and help other suppliers do too. We don’t just plan, we also style and that seems to be quite a popular request currently; not only for fellow suppliers, but for couples who have the planning side nailed, but need some help with the creative side and bringing a vision to life. In this visual and social media driven world, couples are wanting to be more and more unique and décor and styling is one way to do so…mixing up linens, the way you fold a napkin or have a runner, installations and florals and various lighting effects. There are so many ways to inject personality and style and we totally love this part of weddings and events. Another biggy is on the day management, which we have a lot of this year. From doing over 500 weddings, we like to think we know a thing or two about the wedding day and if it means our couples can relax the whole day through, knowing we have everything sorted, then it works for us! We always aim to please!

We also received some exciting photos this week from the fab Melia Melia Photography from a wedding we planned and catered for last year at Wickham House. Seriously dreamy images and we are so excited! We can’t wait to share these with you all soon.

Falling for Fall

So it appears that Autumn is very much here and do you know what we are ok with that! After a busy Summer full of events and weddings, it’s time to recharge the batteries, start planning for next year and most of all get cosy!

Being born in October, I have a particular fondness for the Autumnal months and here’s a few reasons why we think this season is pretty ace and may have you all falling for fall.

1. Colours – All the rich hues and tones on the leaves surrounding us. The coppers, reds, oranges and rusts are super stunning.

2. Warm chunky knits – jumpers, cardigans, scarves – yes, we absolutely adore! Looking cosy, stylish and keeping us warm on these colder days.

3. Boots – Fashion led again, but so versatile. So many styles and keep our tootsies warm and dry.

4. Food – Of course! It’s only natural we would talk about food. And we love our Autumn/Winter menu – full of seasonal goodies – apples, pies, berries, soups, hearty, comfort food. Yums!

5. Nights In – Yes we love our nights out, but when September hits and Saturday night TV in the form of X Factor and Strictly return, we don’t mind cosying up and staying in.

6. Walks – The crunch of the leaves on the ground and the crisp, fresh air – perfection!

7. Blankets – Your winter wardrobe is out and about and the same applies for your home. Blankets return and it’s a full on snug fest.

8. Warm Drinks – A whole lot of yes please to Hot Chocolate and Mulled Wine.

9. Fireworks and Bonfires – Any excuse for fireworks to be honest! Toffee apples, marshmallows, standing around a bonfire, sparklers and cooing over fireworks.

10. Countdown to Christmas – Yes we said it! Sorry…The countdown however is on! Not many pressie buying days left I’m afraid!

See Autumn is a glorious season and we have full on fallen for fall (ok, my favourite one, so I’m biased) but the Goose&Berry girls love these months and we’re sure you might agree with some of the above! In fact we know you do!
