Valentines day means a flurry of proposals and we have been inundated with requests for weddings at the The Vineyard at Stockcross. Love is definitely in the air! Our restaurant was a hive of activity and it was lovely to see the number of flowers being delivered to the hotel over the valentines weekend. We lost count of the discreet and not so discreet proposals during dinner.
But just because the most romantic day of the year has passed it doesn’t mean the romance is gone. We now have the pleasure of organising the forthcoming weddings, putting our couples minds at rest on their special day.
We do have some unique requests from time to time. Last week we spoke to a bride who wanted to out-do her friend. Her friend had organised a ice-cream van during the reception drinks the request was to if we could hire a burger van to come at the end of the evening! We were pleased when our suggestion of a midnight feast of bacon sandwiches, a cheese board and port was going to do the trick.
Our wedding packages are tailor-made to the couple’s requirements. Our team is on hand to make suggestions such as offering unlimited champagne for your guests during the reception drinks. We think that if your guests are being looked after you can concentrate on enjoying your day. Some take the unlimited champagne as a challenge but none has ever beaten our sommeliers.
Come along to our wedding showcase on the 27th March. You will have the chance to meet our preferred suppliers, watch demonstrations as well as sample canapés and wine. It should be a fun day for all involved. Take a look at our website for more information www.the-vineyard.co.uk/wedding.asp
