Timing is EVERYTHING
Easter wedding over the four day bank holiday weekend? Perfect. We think the golden formula is spa day on Friday, ceremony on Saturday, lunch with everyone on Sunday and get over the hangover on Monday. But with four whole days at your disposal, you can’t go wrong. Send your Save The Date early though, before everyone makes plans!
An Easter Wedding lends itself perfectly to undone, tumbling bouquets. Don’t worry too much about matching colours and being perfectly coordinated. There’s something very chic about looking like you just scooped your bouquet from a meadow. Our favourite for this time of year is blossom branches, they make for an elegant and unusual table centrepiece!
Rethink The Cake
Easter is such a good time for baked goods! Simnal cake is an obvious choice, but if you’re not a fan of marzipan and let’s be honest, a lot of people aren’t, there’s still so many options to mix up the cakes! Little chocolate cornflake nests make adorable and purse friendly wedding favours. Hot cross buns in the bread baskets and take advantage of the stunning edible flowers that are just coming into bloom to decorate a naked cake.
Asado al Palo
This traditional Patagonian lamb dish is just perfect for a rustic and informal Easter wedding. British lamb is right in season and Asado al Palo is just a bit more exciting than the traditional hog roast! If you’ve seen it before, we’re talking about a whole lamb, slow roasted over a wood fire. If you’re being fully authentic, remember Gaucho’s don’t bother with plates and cutlery, instead just serve it BBQ style in a napkin.
