We are delighted to announce, that we hosted our first Covid safe wedding with up to 30 guests, post lock down! It has been such a long time since we have been able to celebrate at Micklefield Hall and what a joyous day it was.
Our bride and groom decided they had waited long enough and wanted to officially tie the knot. So, with 30 guests in attendance, they did just that at our stunning temple in the grounds of Micklefield Hall. and we held our first covid safe wedding with up to 30 guests.
Andrew Flemming, our master of floristry, adorned the temple with beautiful green and cream flowers, the bridal party wore simple but stunning flower arrangements on their wrists and the bride’s bouquet looked gorgeous against her amazing wedding dress. The flower arrangements on the table were a collection of seasonal flowers in vases which looked elegant next to the jam jars wrapped in lace.
Our events manager Lauren, along with her assistant Ali, had carefully arranged the seating on the banks of the pond to ensure enough distance between guests, whilst giving each guest the perfect view of the ceremony. Despite the gusty winds, our PA system ensured that every guest heard every word and it was such a delight to witness the bride and groom share their first kiss as husband and wife.
We had the absolute privilege of having both Jen and James (the owners) from Kalm Kitchen cooking and serving on the day, a flash back to the original days of Kalm’s catering at Micklefield Hall.
Accompanied by Pete and Josh from Kalm, they served a selection of canapes on the lawns and a three course dinner in The Great Barn, with the same exceptional standards and attention to detail as every other event they have catered for.
The wedding breakfast menu served included:
Smoked chicken with avocado mouse, mango and coriander salsa
Roasted rump of Hampshire lamb with braised lamb croquette, carrot puree, broad beans, anna potato and lamb roasting juices
Hot chocolate fondant with chocolate ice cream, vanilla sour cream and chocolate crisp
Despite the fact that there were only five tables in the barn, to accommodate the 30 guests, it still felt romantic, elegant and intimate. Spread out with ample room for all the guests to socially distance and plenty of hand sanitiser available, every precaution was taken to ensure a enjoyable event and a safe one.
