I met Lorraine and Matthew in a small café in Guildford just weeks before their wedding, it was quickly clear that this couple were foodies through and through but this came as no real surprise considering they had chosen River Cottage for their wedding. Renowned for its excellent food to the point it has its own mainstream TV show here in the UK.
On the wedding day itself, their ceremony was held on top of a hill overlooking the beautiful landscape of rolling hills and clouds at Cranberries Luxury Hideaway. Luckily for all of us, the weather behaved for the most part, with the sun peeking out from behind the clouds and the wind dropping often enough to bring a really lovely countryside spring feel. After the ceremony, it was a quick trot back to the barns for a drink before heading over to the famous River Cottage HQ by bus.
I can usually assume that any wedding held at River Cottage will be filled with relaxed, down to earth, fun-loving people who also enjoy quality and the finer things in life too. Matthew and Lorraine were no exception to this; their families and friends enjoyed the welly wanging garden games and after some good hard wanging everyone had built up enough of a hunger to head on in for speeches and food. The River Cottage chefs did not disappoint, especially with the freshly hand-made croquembouche from their specialist in-house pastry chef.
