Becks and Johnny: The Great Tythe Barn wedding
We love creating the perfect wedding breakfast for every couple on their big day, but one wedding last year was extra special. For everyone who has met Rebecca, one of The Great Tythe Barn’s very own Event Managers, they’ll know that this was one Bride who knew exactly what she wanted.
For someone who has seen countless wedding breakfasts at this beautiful venue, we were honoured when Becks & Johnny asked Fosters to cater for their special day.
From the very start, Becks knew that she wanted to incorporate our fun sharing courses within the wedding breakfast but making sure that their own personal twist was added.
Becks and Johnny married during a lovely Church wedding. The happy couple then led the way back to The Barn for a celebratory glass (or two) of bubbles.
The Barn looked stunning and was filled with some of the most beautiful flowers we’ve seen. During the drinks reception guests were treated to a canapé selection of slow cooked lamb shoulder croquettes, salt and pepper squid sprinkled with spring onion and coriander, and Paxcroft Farm quails scotch egg with smoked ham hock and pea.
After a massive, warm welcome to the new Mr & Mrs Carne, guests took their seats and the wedding breakfast began.
To start, the guests enjoyed sharing boards of baked Camembert, chicken liver parfait, cured meats and figs.
Following on, in the true style of such a constantly happy and laughing bride, the main course had the whole room in fits of giggles. Continuing the sharing theme, joints of sirloin beef were brought out served with duck fat chips, plum tomatoes, mushrooms and jugs of Béarnaise sauce.
Of course it wouldn’t be Becks to ask for all the carving fun to happen in the kitchen, instead, each table had a nominated guest, who would turn chef for the honour of carving the main course…but not before donning their hand-picked comedy aprons and chef hats!
With the relaxed room full of laughter, the meal finished with a classic crème brûlée, winter berry compote and Somerset butter shortbread. Next were the brilliant, heart-warming and funny speeches by Becks’ dad, Eric and Johnny, followed by a hilarious performance from guests dressed in a style very familiar to the groom.
After a few hours, a couple of drinks and lots of dancing, the evening food was served. Opting for our moreish posh ‘babs, consisting of spiced lamb kofta, cucumber, mint yoghurt and pickled vegetables, a ‘pimp your own kebab’ table gave guests the option to add their own hot sauces and extra toppings.
We loved this wedding and know that Becks was over the moon with every aspect of the day. Working with such a brilliant bride that knows her venue inside out, along with so many other talented people made it a day that we’ll never forget!
We can’t end without a special shout out to the incredibly talented Rob Tarren who let us use his beautiful images for this blog.
We must also mention the lovely and experienced Jodie from Acacia, who arranged the beautiful bespoke flowers which really transformed The Barn.
