Laura and Robbie were married at Mapledurham House, Oxfordshire last weekend. The glorious weather added to their perfect day and many congratulations to the couple from the whole McBaile wedding catering team.
A selection of delicious canapés and a Pimms reception was served in the stunning estate grounds, followed by an English themed country buffet and a vintage afternoon tea which was especially appreciated by the American guests.

Dear Laura and all your team, I know Laura and Robbie will be writing to you and sending some photos too but on behalf of Steve and I, we would just like to say an enormous thank you for being part of what can only be described as a truly magical day. Without your input it would not have been so successful. You were truly a delight to work with and made the whole event so much easier to organise. thank you so much and if we need to organise another big event (fortunately no more daughter’s weddings!) We will definitely be in touch. Very best wishes Steve and Sue Scrace
McBaile Exclusive were working alongside Danco Marquees this year to provide the 2012 jubilee themed hospitality catering at Badminton Horse Trials.
‘The recent exceptional rainfall has left the ground at Badminton totally waterlogged and partially flooded. Further rain is due this week leaving no chance of the ground drying out. Very sadly therefore the 2012 Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials has been cancelled.
The McBaile team, along with thousands of other suppliers, exhibitors, riders and visitors were hugely disappointed but we look forward to providing catering at the 2013 event.
With the beautiful weather, theatrical decorations and idyllic setting at Walton Castle, the wedding of Nicky and Pip really was a picture perfect day.
Vicky at Vintage Tea Sets provided some exquisite pieces from her vintage crockery range which contributed to Pip’s creation of the Tim Burtonesque style wedding reception. Gnarled wood and splashes of vibrant colour complimented the antique setting of the castle and surrounding walled grounds. The food by McBaile Exclusive Catering was plentiful including whole dressed salmon, colourfully fresh salads, rustic breads and a rich pate, all served on a combination of heavy solid wood platters and delicately ornate vintage crockery. An array of cheeses and large platters of fruits were in an abundance and enjoyed by the guests. We received some lovely comments from Pip’s family…
‘Peter and I wish to convey our appreciation for your efforts on our behalf, your professional, friendly approach to all the questions made ‘self’ catering easy!!!!! On the day you and your team played a major part in the success, you and Caroline being a delight to work with. I hope that, inspite of all the hard work, you had some time to enjoy the most special occasion. The food was brilliant. Many, many compliments from our guests followed throughout the evening, long after you had gone. I,(Peter) just loved those cheese boards. The gentleman who stayed behind to assist with the bar was great [Matt] please thank him for his efforts. Once again thank you all so much .Your contribution played such a major part. Love Pete and Kate’
It was a day to remember for the McBaile team and we thank Nicky, Pip and their family for a very enjoyable day.

Directors of McBaile Exclusive, Rod McCormick and Laura Bailes were married on the 25th January 2011 at Stoneridge Estate in Queenstown, New Zealand. It was a beautiful day, with fabulous food, wine and stunning views across vineyards and lakes. Rod managed to stay out of the kitchen, just, although Laura couldn’t help running around keeping the staff organised!
Happy memories and back to the UK at the end of Feb for a busy 2011 of catering and coordinating other fabulous weddings and events.
After much debate they won’t be changing their name to ‘McBaile‘ but will keep it as McCormick, although I’m sure the company name will stick, even with friends and family nonetheless!
