Ex Pats Business Lunch

We all get invites to join this type of group and wonder whether they are worth attending. As a new Ex Pat in Majorca I had nothing to lose, at least I would get to visit a new venue and maybe meet some interesting people. I wasn’t disappointed.

I met two very attractive young ladies called Alice and Imogen Tod who have the perfect recipe for a great life. They have a private catering company called, (surprisingly) Tod Sisters and reside in Majorca over the Summer months, returning to England in the Winter.

Their love of catering started at a very young age, watching and getting involved with all the wonderful social gatherings they had as a family. Their father was also a foodie and that had a huge influence on their lives, they loved gathering and preparing local grown food. The passion these two ladies have for food shows in what they cook and how they cook it.

I am so looking forward to working with these lovely ladies and bringing their culinary delights to my future Bride and Grooms considering getting married in Majorca.

Getting to know you

One of the nicest aspects of my job is getting to know the bridal party on the lead up to their wedding day. I have made many new friends over the years and it so nice when they keep in touch. Saturday was no exception !

The first wedding was at the old Swan and saw the marriage of John and Claire, a lovely couple I am so pleased they had a lovely day. They dressed the poles in the Old Swan which looks great in the evening and chose the purples sashes.

Just down the road at The Sun Pavilion saw the wedding reception of Emma and Jonathan Kerr. Seeing the wedding party the day before sharing their excitement is a great honour

I was lucky enough to be the wedding day Hostess – managing the day for this lovely family. Luckily the rain stayed away long enough for the photos and then it was time for the Aagrah to do their thing !

food

A great change to be having a curry for the wedding breakfast ! The room looked lovely with white sashes and pretty pink flowers.

They really made a handsome couple and Emma’s dress was truly stunning. It really was a pleasure to make their wedding day a day they will love and cherish 🙂

It is truly stunning and was my favourite long before the very handsom Tom Hiddleston came along – but now -well……………………

Todays tip for destination weddings

For Grooms and their male guests; take a couple od extra shirts for the wedding day. It gets hot out there and it will be lovely to freshen up and put on a fresh new clean shirt !

Wynyard Hall Marquee

Back in February last year I had a lovely Email from Ananda who was organising a wedding celebration for her son Kartik and his soon to be wife Kavitha, asking me to plan their big day. The guest list was 350 people plus and the entertainment was fabulous.

After lots of planning I was thrilled at the result of this wonderful day at Wynyard Hall Marquee, I hope you will love the photos as much as I do !

Venues in Mallorca – ref # N1PW

This week was the start of my search for fantastic venues on this beautiful Island. I already know of many but I want to search out that very special one. Saturday was not the best of days weather wise and after not being able to find our car, (don’t ask – men!) and two blisters later we set off in the heavy rain ! We visited one or two nice venues but I have to say I fell in love with this one – have a look at the images and tell me what you think.

The amazing views from the terrace just took my breath away! The staff were both friendly and professional and the best part was prices started from as little as 90 Euros per head – minimum numbers in the high season 90. A really great venue.
