Escape for the Night – My Dream Wedding Menu
I don’t do a lot of competition posts but I’ve been tempted by the prospect of a night in at Stanley House, a luxury hotel in the North West of England, with breakfast, dinner and spa treatments included. Anyone who knows me, knows I love an overnight in a hotel with spa treatments.
Brian and I have been married for 32 years, the photo above is from 2011 which was our 30th Wedding Anniversary and is taken outside the hotel where we had our wedding reception.
To enter this competition you have to write about your dream wedding menu which really got me thinking. At our wedding, so long ago, I went for simplicity. As it was June, I chose traditional Scottish summer dishes: a whole side of poached salmon served cold with a buffet, followed by Scottish strawberries and cream, to be honest I can’t remember much else about the food. I didn’t want a big wedding, just family and a few close friends, it was all very informal.
For my Dream Wedding Menu, I would still choose beautiful fresh Scottish produce, but this time it would be a slightly more formal dinner, for a slightly different group of family and friends as many of those invited to our wedding are no longer with us.
