To create the laid-back, bohemian wedding that they had been dreaming of, Brogan and Callum first had to find the perfect setting, and the got just what they were looking for in Packington Moor. This rustic and authentic barn wedding venue in Staffordshire was love at first sight for the happy couple.
“As soon as we visited Packington Moor I knew it was the venue for us,” says Brogan. “The location was amazing and the staff were so welcoming. I loved how gorgeous the barns were and I felt the courtyard provided a really relaxed atmosphere for evening entertainment and a barbecue.
They had decided on a natural country look to their day with plenty of flowers, foliage and wooden features making up their decorations, they were going to become ‘The Woods’ after all! With a mixture of pretty pastel colours, floral displays and a number of rustic elements, the couple created a beautiful boho style that looked right at home in this stunning venue.
With Packington Moor being one of the ten wedding venues across the country that features a Galloping Gourmet in-house catering and events team, Brogan and Callum knew that they and their guests would receive the most incredible wedding food and service on their big day. They were looking for something untraditional and modern, and our expert chefs did not disappoint!
With a choice of ham hock paté or four cheese ravioli to start, a surprise course of apple sorbet and raspberry vodka that certainly create a buzz amongst their guests, and beef two ways or a Mediterranean tart for the main course, everybody had a fantastic time wining and dining in style.
“We finished with a trio of desserts consisting of lemon tart, shortbreads and chocolate brownie,” says Brogan. “All the courses were delicious and presented exceptionally by Galloping Gourmet.”
In the evening, they treated their friends and family to a mouth-watering barbecue, spectacularly cooked out in the courtyard by the chefs, and complete with everything from juicy burgers to wonderful halloumi kebabs.
Of course, the standard of the wedding food at Packington Moor came as no surprise to Brogan and Callum, as they had previously attended a Galloping Gourmet Tasting Event at the venue where they could sample some amazing dishes and drinks, as well as getting a feel for the setting full of people and enjoyment, just as it would be on their big day.
