Congratulations on your journey to forever! As you plan your dream wedding, let’s dive into the exciting world of culinary delights that will leave your guests raving about your special day. From fusion feasts to locally sourced wonders, we’ve got the perfect food inspiration to make your wedding an unforgettable celebration of love and flavours.
Gone are the days of standard, bland, inside the box wedding food, here at Manor by the Lake we love nothing more than a feast, filled to the brim with flavour, freshness, and utter fabulousness!
Local Love on Your Plate
Supporting local is not just a trend; it’s a commitment to quality and sustainability. At Manor by the Lake, we take pride in offering locally sourced ingredients to create a menu that not only tantalises taste buds but also supports local farmers and producers.
Imagine savouring the freshest, seasonal produce, carefully curated to elevate your wedding breakfast, leaving you all wanting seconds.
Speaking of seasons, why not let the time of year influence your menu? From spring-inspired salads to hearty winter stews, we offer seasonal sensations that showcase the best of each time of year.
Your wedding menu can be a culinary journey through the seasons. In winter we look to roasted meats, seasonal veg and warming dishes, where as the spring and summer brings in a world of fresh and vibrant foods. Autumn then comes along with a rich palette of colours and seasonings, but again, you are not limited to any of these, incorporate them all if you like, everything is entirely your choice.
What is food without a drink to wash it all down with? Along with seasonal dishes comes the tipples that pair perfectly with each. Wow at your drink’s reception with personalised couple cocktails and mocktails. Think summer Pimm’s and elderflower spritz, winter cocoa and mulled wine, spring mojitos and autumn toffee apple ciders… the list goes on.
Serving up Style
Your love story is one of a kind, and so should be your dining experience. Manor by the Lake offers a variety of dining styles to suit your taste and personality:
Informal Delights: Picture live cooking stations, sizzling BBQs, and charming hog roasts. Opt for grazing stations, picnics, or delightful canapés for a laid-back, intimate feel. Whether inside or under the open sky, let your culinary choices set the tone for a relaxed celebration.
Banquet Bliss: If you’re dreaming of a festival-style celebration, banqueting tables are the way to go. Inside or outside, your guests can share in the joy of communal dining that capture the essence of togetherness.
Formal Elegance: For a more formal affair, imagine beautifully set tables adorned with shared platters at the centre. You can choose to let your guests indulge in plated dishes and multi-course feasts, creating a dining experience that is both sophisticated and heartfelt.
Embracing Culinary Fusion
Why settle for one when you can have the best of both worlds? We encourage couples to embrace culinary fusion, combining different styles and cuisines to create a menu that reflects your unique love story. Picture a feast that seamlessly blends cultural traditions, creating a multitude of flavours that will leave your guests in awe.
