It’s summertime, and we all know what that means! Yes, Hog Roast Maybole has officially entered one of our busiest times of the year. Between all of the BBQ events, end-of-term parties and wedding season, our crew have a lot to keep them occupied over the next few months, which is just the way we like it!
There’s nothing more thrilling for us than helping people celebrate all of life’s special moments, and with every event different from the last, each day brings a new wave of excitement for our caterers. On that note, we thought you might like to hear about one of the most recent events we catered at.
Bride and groom, Kezia and Douglas, had asked us to cater for their wedding reception, which took place way out in the sticks. The quirky countryside venue, which featured a secret garden with traditional Romany-style wooden caravans, hanging lanterns, a rustic dining table for the guests to eat at and a huge fire pit, added an air of magic to the couple’s big day.
The ceremony itself took place underneath a flower arch, surrounded by candlelight. Meanwhile, our catering manager, Steve, and the Hog Roast Maybole crew worked hard to get the traditional hog roast menu ready in time for the celebrations to kick off.
Shortly after Douglas and Kezia had been pronounced husband and wife, and the group had posed for some whimsical wedding photos, they formed a queue at our catering tent and waited for our team to treat them to a crunchy roll that had been filled to the brim with juicy pulled pork, crispy crackling, homemade sage and onion stuffing and applesauce. The guests also had their pick of salad, potato and chips, along with a meat-free option of BBQ pulled jackfruit rolls topped with vegan coleslaw.
Once everyone had polished off their bamboo plates, Hog Roast Maybole sliced the naked-style wedding cake, which they served as a buffet with fresh cream and ripe berries. The guests enjoyed the dessert around the campfire, where they ended the evening by making smores and singing classic folk songs.
