Laura and Andrew’s wedding 

Saturday, April 18th 2015

Clissold House, Church Street, N16 9HJ, London

Saturday 18th April 2015, Laura and Andrew got married. It took place in Hackney at a venue called Clissold House. The apéritif, canapés and drinks, served by the waiters elapsed outside, in the garden. Such a stunning venue thanks to a beautiful weather.

The venue, located in Hackney, is at the heart of the Clissold Park; wonderful view, there is a kind of lake just near to the venue, and a beautiful green landscape. Thus, everything went perfectly for such a special event and certainly one of the most beautiful day of Bride & Groom.

The Clissold House was decorated remarkably; a flower vase on each table, with the place name and the table name. White linen, white chairs for such a lovely and illuminated atmosphere. Table name were illustrated through some pictures of planes, what a funny idea.

For the event, three kind of canapés were provided; a smoked salmon with salmon mousse and lemon zest on brown bread, a North African minted couscous on carrot, and a goat’s cheese with parsley and sun-dried tomato Feuillet. There were also some specials ones, such as a cherry tomato and mozzarella with vegetarian pesto, and vegetables and tofu skewers.

To continue with the sit down dinner, the starter was based on roasted butter-nuts with rosemary goat’s cheese, pear poached in a red wine sauce pumpkin seeds. After that, the menu was a grilled chicken breast in a Tagine sauce, with butter fine green beans warp in carrots and Gratin Dauphinoise as sides. To finish with the dessert, a spicy apple and apricots crumble was served with a crème Anglaise.

Speeches took place after the lunch; father of the Bride began, then it was the Groom and Best Lady. After the tea time and in order to open the party, the beautiful and lovely first dance of Bride & Groom elapsed. During the evening, a cheese buffet was supplied; it was an assorted Continental and British Cheese buffet with crackers, celery and grapes.
