Anna & Joe

A Midsummer Teepee Wedding

The Brief

Anna and Joe loved the idea of having a nod to their heritage in their menu for their midsummer country Teepee wedding. Anna has Welsh heritage and Joe Chinese.

The Venue

Hall Barn, Beaconsfield

The Magic

Being an outdoor wedding we fired up the BBQ, perfect for five spiced racks of lamb! We snuck in a few Chinese and Welsh touches through the canapés and main course. For dessert Anna and Joe had a lot of keen bakers in the family so they offered a Great British Bake Off Stall which we accompanied with whipped cream and summer fruits.
