October may have been a dreary month for many but McBaile Exclusive brought some South African sunshine to Bristol for the spectacular wedding of Simon & Charlie. Striking Bristol venue Circomedia played host to the vivid black and red decorated wedding, for which McBaile supplied the catering. Guests arrived and were welcomed in to the cathedral with cocktails and a selection of warming canapés that included mini Boerewors hot dogs with mustard & ketchup, Brazilian spiced chicken empanadas and filo pastry cones of whipped goat’s cheese mousse & chilli gooseberry relish. Mr & Mrs Lowthian entered through a cloud of smoke, provided by a smoke machine of course, before watching an aerial performance by one of Circomedia’s talented performers.
Following a distinct ‘Rock & Roll’ theme, guests sat at tables named after rock songs such as ‘nothing else matters’ by Metallica before tucking in to an opulent buffet. The roast confit leg of duck in a madeira sauce reduction and braised shin of beef with duck fat roasted new potatoes were popular options, with guests coming back for second and third helpings. With the live band ready to go and a vibrant Bride & Groom ready to initiate an evening of dancing, mini melktert and dark chocolate & orange mousse cup desserts were promptly served with the colourful rainbow wedding cake by our attentive and professional staff.
All in all, a very cool day and night with much fun had by everyone who had the pleasure of being there. Thanks to Circomedia, we look forward to the next event!
“Good to catch up with you yesterday to discuss how the rest of the wedding went on Saturday. Just to confirm that Charlie & Simon Lowthian were really pleased with their wedding party which is great. One of the key benefits of working with McBaile is the event management and professionalism that is guaranteed with every event” - Julie Higgins, the Front of House Manager at Circomedia
