The Hollytree Foundation Charity Ball at Scampston Hall


We were absolutely delighted to not only cater for The Hollytree Foundation Charity Ball but also for some of the team to attend as guests. We do like to support local charities wherever we can and this was no exception. Held at the stunning Scampston Hall the guests partied the night away and danced until the early hours to the fabulous Nightjars band.


Over 320 guests dined on canapés, a Trio of Salmon, Butter Roasted Breast of Guinea Fowl and Confit Leg wrapped in Parma Ham, followed by Tarte au Citron served with Lemon Curd Ice Cream and Fresh Berries.





The Hollytree Foundation is a wonderful charity who support the parents and carers of children who are in mental health units, often located many miles away from home. The added pressure of travelling, and the increased costs associated with this, combine to make an already difficult time almost impossible for those caring for children with mental health issues. The funds raised from the Ball will give the Foundation a much needed boost to continue with their work. You can find out more about them, and how to support them, here



A huge thank you to the very lovely Emma at Little Sixpence Photography for these stunning images. You can see more of her stunning fine art images on facebook here

Credit also to the fantastic folks at Boutipi for their amazing set up, and to our friends at Elite Bar Services for keeping the drinks flowing!

Well done again to everyone involved in the Ball. Such a fabulous night and we’re very proud to have played a part.

Real Wedding -Lillie & Zyen’s Beautiful Fusion Wedding

One of the many reasons we love our jobs so much, is that no two weddings are ever the same and after all, variety is the spice of life, or so they say! We’re incredibly lucky to be involved in so many beautiful events and none more so than the gorgeous fusion wedding of Lillie & Zyen, who partied the night away at one of our favourite venues, The Normans



This lovely couple were so much fun to work with and they chose a fabulous menu to suit everyone which included wooden platters with Lamb Skewers, Chilli and lime Seabass parcels, Spiced Chicken, Jewelled Rice and lots more…

Venue Spotlight – Wharfedale Grange

We promised to bring you more of the fabulous new venues that we’ve been visiting and we weren’t fibbing! Today we wanted to share Wharfedale Grange which is just beautiful. We recently catered there for Jess & James’s wedding and can’t wait to be back there again to see the transformation of the barns unfold.

Here’s the story, as told by Wharfedale themselves..

‘Once upon a time, nestled in the emerald fields between Leeds and Harrogate, there was a beautiful collection of run-down barns just waiting to be restored to a glory that hadn’t ever been considered before, along came a Style Queen with exceptional good taste running through her veins, and with blooming flowers, flourishing fruits and a King’s ransom, she brought them back to life.

Wharfedale Grange is bathed in luxury – this truly magical redevelopment of four barns is being completely transformed into a farmhouse-luxe paradise. As your Fairy Godmother, we grant you one of the most exclusive retreats in Yorkshire, with a breathtaking vista that spans from Kirkby Overblow to Weeton, taking in the whole of the North Park of Harewood House, your wedding dreams can finally come true. You and your loved ones will be enchanted with our modern-yet-timeless vibe, in which we’ve thought of everything. We call it ‘Romantic Industrialist’.

We invite you to step away from the grey of every day life, and into our wedding wonderland. We’ve cast a spell to cater for your every need. Enter our world, where you will find a stunning ceremony room, luxurious cocktail bar, sparkling chandeliers and elegant, soft velvet furnishings in our trademark colours of the palest blush pink, charcoal grey, rose gold and washed royal blue. With mezzanines giving us the ultimate flexibility, we can accommodate wedding parties from 50 – 250. The Father-of-the-Bride will be treated like a King, with the beer of his choice served on draught. Mums will feel like Queens as they look on with true contentment at the pure joy and delight oozing from their very dearest VIP’s as they rejoice in the biggest and best day of their lives. And we haven’t forgotten about your Ladies-in-Waiting either, as they giggle towards the loos, only to discover a Gossip Room… complete with a Prosecco tap!’

It sounds absolutely amazing doesn’t it?


There is so much to love about this amazing venue but we think you should go and check it out for yourselves. They still have some 2018 dates and there is a 20% discount for dates in the same year booked prior to the completion of all the renovations – that’s an offer not to be missed! (Please confirm T’s & C’s with them!)


Get in touch with Claire and we’re sure she will be happy to chat further…
