Our experts talk winter wonderland weddings...
Caroline says: “We think inspiration for a winter wedding breakfast lies in some warming spices, rich flavours and hearty dishes.
“Canapés with roast beef and horseradish pipette, a white pepper croute with stilton, prosciutto and honey drizzle and a hot spiced lamb meatball really fit the bill.
“Starters might include a spiced squash soup or a fun sharing whole baked garlic and rosemary studded camembert with crunchy crudites.
“For main course dishes, continuing the sharing theme, meat boards are a great option, with two meats portioned or carved and a choice of traditional or Mediterranean vegetables. A duo of sausages or a shortcrust pastry pie are always a winter winner or perhaps a stew with venison, smoked bacon and juniper berries might suit.
“With so many desserts to choose from, a trio of desserts will cover all bases! You might like a theme such as salted caramel or clementine or just a selection of your favourite puddings in miniature for your guests to enjoy.
“If you’re looking to dance the night away with some late-night nibbles on hand, we think wood fired pizzas hit the spot to complete the menu for your special winter wedding day.”
