Fresh Cream and Devon Strawberries Cake for a Special Wedding Couple

Our weather held out again today in North Devon as we attended another lovely wedding at Millbrook Estate.
Tania chose our fresh cream and strawberries layered cake. Sometimes when there’s just too much sweet stuff this one is really refreshing and worth paying the little extra for too.

Vintage Country Wedding in North Devon

When Emma came to us and asked for Afternoon Tea, would you be surprised that we said “ooh yes please, we would love to help you?” of course you wouldn’t, but that’s not because this is our job, it’s because we love vintage and afternoon teas. So here are some photos of the day and if you are looking for Afternoon Tea catering we have been supplying Afternoon Tea, Cream Teas and buffet catering for many years and we can also supply a high tea (yes there is a difference see our blog post HERE)

Here are some photos taken of their day.

Rustic Handbaked Scones for a Devon Cream Tea Wedding

We had a lovely day at Millbrook Estate for an intimate wedding for two recently. Rustic hand-baked heart shaped scones were made with lashings of Devon clotted cream and locally made jam and one of our lovely chocolate and strawberry cakes. Hannah looked stunning and they had a really fabulous afternoon just chilling out in the Summer House at Millbrook Estate. There is something very magical about a wedding in North Devon and the Calla Lillies outside the Summer House were lovely in full bloom.

We love cream teas and being part of making a couple’s day even more special with locally produced Devon foods.

Cream Tea at the Double Locks for Jess & Nick

There is nothing like a Cream Tea on a wet day in Devon!    Thankfully all 90 guests were safely tucked inside the marquee at the Double Locks, Exeter when we catered for Jess and Nick’s wedding.  Despite the on and off rain it was a lovely day for them and the photos below show how Jess decorated the marquee and tables naming each one after famous historical couples, and the flowers were in kilner jars.  Jess also created a photo wall, which you can see in one of our photos and also used a vintage case for her cards and gifts to be placed in by the door.  We then added the china, scones, jam and clotted cream and lashings of tea and coffee.  We had a really lovely time with all their friends and family and would like to thank them all for making us feel so welcome and part of their day.
