Weddings in the Country-Friday


Today, was a mad day in the shop. Two weddings, one twenty first and an unusual request. I spent my day driving all over the county dropping off beautiful table arrangements. One of the things I love about this job is getting to see all the venues our brides choose. Well today both venues were a treat, but one was especially lovely, Brills Farm in Norton Disney, halfway between Lincoln and Newark was just a delight on a warm September afternoon.



Sophie, who alongside her husband Charlie and there four children live at Brill's farm. Built in 1720, the beautiful Gerorgian house sits in a commanding hill top position with spectacular 360* views over Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire.
Sophie's friendly, laid back attitude I am sure immediately makes people feel as if they are part of the family, which is just what she wants her guests  to feel.

Having lived in France when she was younger Sophie's passion for good quality and tasty food started early. She has run  her outside catering company, The Cats Whiskers Catering Company" since 2001. And has travelled all over the U.K. For parties, weddings and corporate events. This is a completely bespoke service and Sophie creates a menu for each couple according to their taste and budget.

In the grounds of the house, spread out on the front lawn was the most beautiful marquee.  Supplied    By David Wilson of "Every Occasion Events marquee company." David and Sophie work together to create a perfect venue of high standard.



The Whites openly admit that they are not a stately home or a grand hotel with formal gardens, but merely a humble family home. But a family home that is situated in the most beautiful surroundings,
and from what I saw any bride would be very lucky to spend her day celebrating with her new husband and all their family and friends at this most beautiful spot.
