Nancy & Tims' Ufton Court Wedding

Tuesday 15th January 2019

We loved catering for Nancy and Tim last October at Ufton Court one of our recommended venues and wanted to share the love with you. The bride and groom both wanted the food to have a relaxed feel and so went for plenty of canapes served during the drinks reception followed by a two course BBQ served family style. This means platters and bowls of the BBQ food brought to all the dining tables for guests to help themselves. For dessert the bride had the amazing idea of whole cheesecakes served to the middle of each table and then a nominated guest for each stood up the cut the 'cakes' at the same time as the bride and groom cut theirs at the top table. THE MENU Canapes; Sticky Teriyaki Chicken Skewers Honey & mustard glazed mini sausages Thai Fish Bites with Sweet Chilli dip Quails egg scotch egg Seared scallops with pea & mint puree Wild Mushroom Ragout Spoons (V) Wedding breakfast; BBQ Marinated 4oz Steak Cajun Spiced Chicken thighs…

Traditional Christmas wedding

Friday 12th January 2018

Zoë and Tom were married on the 17th December 2016 and held their reception at Zoë's family home in Buckinghamshire. A traditional Christmas wedding theme was order of the day, with strictly no tackiness. Think snow style confetti, rich red hues, candlelight and mulled wine to name a few. It was just so festive and magical in equal measure. Total Hospitality absolutely loved catering this wedding back in December 2016. Photos by Lola Rose Photography.

June Update

Tuesday 13th June 2017

We have been having lots of fun catering at some fab events for the past few months. We just thought we would share some with you... May bank holiday proved to be a very busy week with lots of lovely couples getting married. We catered at the lovely Ufton Court in Ufton Nervet several times, Monks Barn in Hurley, a marquee wedding in Shinfield and finished with a beautiful wedding in Shiplake. We served up food from so many of our menus including our family sharing buffet menus where the food is delivered to guests at the tables in bowls and on platters for them to help themselves to whatever they fancy. We served our sharing platter antipasti boards for appetisers, sharing platter mini desserts which we added last year are starting to be really popular now too as well as our more traditional three course meals and BBQ in the evening. We provided two cocktail bars where the bride and groom can choose up to five cocktails for the evening bar menu. We…
